Danish: Allerede når den hældes op i glasset, fornemmes det med det samme, at Hr. Frederiksen er en herre med både potens og stor personlighed. Begsort som Hr. Frederiksens humor er denne ”Imperial Stout” efter amerikansk forbillede med et tæt og cremet, lysebrunt skum, som efterlader pikante blonder i glasset, efterhånden som det modstræbende lægger sig. Vi indrømmer det gerne – vi er gået amok med maltene i denne øl, hele 8 forskellige har vi brugt, og det er de sorte og brændte, der giver øllet både dets farve og den nærmest ekstreme fylde – dette er nærmest et fudbyrdet måltid på flaske. Også bitterhed leverer de brændte malte sekunderet af amerikansk Centennial humle. Åh jo, Hr. Frederiksen er en oplevelse at byde op til dans, han bør dog nydes langsomt, men så kan han til gengæld også holde en hel aften, hvor man kan varme sig ved hans alkohol og udfordrende charme.
Vi har opkaldt denne øl efter en god ven uden hvis fantastiske støtte og assistance Amager Bryghus ikke var, hvor det er i dag.

English: Even when just poured into the glass, you feel straight away that Mr. Frederiksen is a master of potency and great personality. Pitch-black as Mr. Frederiksen’s humor, this American style Imperial Stout has a dense and creamy, light brown head that leaves an abundance of lacing on the glass as it reluctantly settles.
We are happy to admit that we have gone slightly berserk with malt in this beer, eight different varieties were used including black and roasted malts that give this beer its color and almost extreme density - this is almost a meal in a bottle. The bitterness is also supplied by the roasted malts backed by the American Centennial hops.
Mr. Frederiksen is an experience to be savoured he should be enjoyed slowly throughout the course of an entire evening where you can warm yourselves by his alcohol and provocative charms.
We have named this beer after a good friend without whose wonderful support and assistance Amager Brewery would not be where it is today.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, wheat malt, oats, hops and yeast

kustie (273) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle. Pitch black color with small brown head. Aroma has caramel, roasted malt, licorice, raisin and coffee. Taste is a bit sweet with a long bitter and salty finish. Flavors of coffee, licorice, caramel, roasted malt and ripe fruits. Full body and quite oily texture. Excellent.

Senka (808) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2014
50cl bottle from Joogipood deTolly (Thank You for a good recommendation). Dark roasted, full bodied, pleasantly carbonated, beautiful to look at, with a perfect ABV for the type. Hopped in moderation - it does not overpower all other aromas and taste palate. Once you open the bottle - it fills the room with beautiful stout aroma. Pours pitch black with creamy head. You can not drink it in big mouthfuls - it is just to thick and heavy. Perfect all around. Hard to compare to others well balanced stouts. It has a perfect smooth, velvety texture and same start and finish. Not overly roasted and burnt, not extremely heavy on ABV and not too dry. This brew does not kick you in your feels. I have to mention Põhjala Pime Öö, which is indeed a desert stout compared to this one. This is a huge brew. Best Imperial Stout so far for me. Served at approximately 12degC.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours an inky black with cola highlights and a tiny ring of off-white bubbles. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, black coffee, dark malts with a moderately strong roast, sweet cream and vanilla undertone, and a bit of pine hop on the finish. Palate sweeter at first than the nose would suggest, with both sweetened coffee and dark chocolate, vanilla, a bit of molasses, a light berry character in the middle maybe? As the sip goes on it dries out rapidly, hints of wood joining a burnt malt, roast coffee bean, and hop bitterness that leads to a totally dry finish. Aftertaste is not ashy per se, but definitely quite roasted/burnt, moderate hop bitterness that persists is fairly strong given the style. Medium full, oily body, very soft carb. No alcohol heat. Great imperial stout, with two disparate halves nicely linked as the transition plays out on the tongue. Sweet start is very flavourful, dry finish prevents it from being cloying. The resulting beer is surprisingly elegant given its rather robust flavours.

bunget (594) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
500ml bottle. Dark, almost black body, medium mocha head with good retention, lots of lacing. Aroma of licorice, blackberry jam, herbs, cocoa, a tad metallic. Taste of burned caramel, blackberry jam, herbal bitter, dark chocolate, a touch of coffee. Nice and warming.

Renobob (1051) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 15, 2014
Bue en bouteille. Bière lourde, très lourde au palais. On est principalement sur le café avec peu de CO2 et beaucoup d'alcool. Pour les amateurs du genre.

lesifflebiere (1383) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2014
Noir total dans ce liquide épais mais pas trop ; le nez est de céréales rôties, de brûlé, un peu de cacao pour la forme. Bouche ronde, épaisse, intense et durable, avec cette impression qu’elle tapisse la bouche. L’alcool est bien géré, même s’il fait bien sentir son influence en arrière-plan. On approche le brûlé, dans cette impystout poussée à l’extrême. Excellente boisson d’hiver, sans compromis aucun.

Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Pours a real dark brown colour with hardly any highlights. Beautiful creamy-bubbly beige head that stays long and creates thick creamy lacing. Roasted malt aromas with some darker fruits. The fruits take over in the taste and the alcohol is very well-hidden. The roasted malts are blended quite mildly in there. Nothing too crazy here, but goes down smoothly overall.

Listigovers (413) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Roast malt and coffee aroma, slight smoke, black with a dense brown head. Full bodied, boozy, roasted and bitter flavour, very dry, intense beer.

Gerbeer (2161) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with slight tan head. Aromas of dark berries, sweet dark chocolate, and dry roasted malts. Flavors of bitter dark chocolate, ash, and dry roasted malts. Not getting the smoothness from the oats but still very nice.

jksipa (454) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Opaque dark brown with a tiny beige head that doesn’t linger. Nose has lots of chocolate and coffee with a dose of vanilla, roasted nuts, toffee, dark fruit and underneath it all some pine and grass. First impression is of a medium sweet toffee start, but this is only momentary before a big coffee and dark chocolate bitterness takes over and continues through to a dry chewy finish. This is a big beer with a lot of flavour but still not enough to cover the 10.5% alcohol. Mouth is medium full with very soft carbonation. Needs to be savoured slowly.
