3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bière brune presque noire, cette impériale stout est douce et agréable. Nez puissant de gâteau aux fruits au Cognac qu’on sert habituellement pendant le Temps des Fêtes, de dates et auquel s’ajoute une touche de fumée très plaisante. Le liquide en bouche est rond et présente des saveurs d’acool non dissimulées qui me plaisent beaucoup. C’est chaud, délicat et réconfortant. Un pointe de tabac se mêle de la partie et se marie parfaitement à la réglisse noire. Décidément, son côté plutôt collant et sirupeux me plaisent beaucoup. Une bonne amertume due aux malts bien serrés. Bière de très bonne compagnie, même par une soirée chaude.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Amager Hr. Frederiksen) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 10.5%
Black coloured beer with almost two full fingers of thick, dark beige head sitting on top, with very good retention. Medium lacing left around the glass.
Aroma seems weird at first but after some breathing in the glass and some swirling, nice notes emerging of light chocolate, roasted malts, some herbs, liquorice, vanilla, alcohol.
Rich taste, sweet at first with alcohol, vanilla, liquorice, chocolate, moccha, fruity touches follow, roasted malts, cookies, herbs.
Medium to full body, good soft carbonation, smooth and creamy texture.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I think I samlped earlier version.
Pours balsam black, on nose- sweet dark malts, dark caramel, maybe a bit alcohol. Taste- medium sweet and light to moderate bitter. Pleasant, silky texture, thick body. Nothing extra imp stout, but very pleasant sipping, well balanced beer with dominant malt, caramel emphasis.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle served in a snifter. Dark brown with an off white head which disappears quickly. Aroma is subdued for the style with just the bare ingredients shining through rather than any additional flavours which would have been most welcome. Mouthfeel was disappointingly thin for the style, strength and reputation. In fact the Nogne Imperial Stout being sampled at the same time had this beat on all areas and most importantly price. Quite a weak effort. I have yet to try a good Amager Imperial Stout and only have Danish Metal left to try.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. A truly great beer! Appearance: black colour with thick beige foam. Aroma: not very strong, roasted malts, coffee but also hops and floral notes. Taste: heavy and rich, lots of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruity notes, great balance between malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Full body. Complex and delicious!

Standard IMP stout for me, superbly balanced and high quality. Quite heavy roasted malt background, lovely coffeeish kick, dark choco, licorice, decent floral hop kick.
Moderate to light sweetness with moderate bitterness. Really enjoyable brew

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Hug beer. Nose was a bit weak, some alcohol and coffee. Taste was more like a smooth barely wine than a stout to me. Complex, full. Long lushish finish.
