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.

Bottle to glass. Pours black, somewhat light and watery, and a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, coffee, and light floral. Taste starts kind of sweet, then gets more on the bitter level of black coffee. Full body, smooth to drink, very bitey and bitter to end. Not my favorite in the category, but I’d drink it again.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 500 ml bottle from the LCBO. Black with mocha head. Smells like sweet roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate, sweet cherry cola, some hops. Syrupy. Sticky. Taste follows the nose. This is a heavy , sweet sipper. Lingering bittersweet finish. A bit too sweet for me.

italianjohn (2411) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Deep black pour with a thin somewhat creamy dark brown head oily and light lacing ..... Aroma of burnt malts, dark fruity yeast, licorice, dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate ..... Taste of bitter cocoa, licorice, dark roasted malts, burnt malts and dark fruit ... Smells and tastes similar and the abv is hidden completely .... Finish is bitter, and dry with a lingering roasted malt .... Mouthfeel is oily and dry .... Excellent imperial stout well balanced flavors

Hopmaestro (298) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma is citric hops perfectly matched with a thick roasted malt smell. The taste and mouthfeel is full bodied, rich malts with the classic bitterness in it, some liquorice underneath and dark chocolates. I can’t say anything bad about this one except that it is outrageous that it is hard to get in Sweden nowadays. Someone has to fix that, if not, I’ll start a company and import it myself. Because if you don’t like their brews, you most probably are a Heineken man.

rejtable (1501) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Man this is awesome! Pours pitch black with a good tan frothy head and tons of lacing. Nose is espresso, bitter chocolate. Flavours are espresso, bitter chocolate, maybe some molasses, some dark fruit like figs. Taste heavy/med sweet, med/heavy bitter. Big beer in the mouth, lots of carbonation and a long bitter finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Crazy good beer.

Pours opaque black, some ruby highlights. Thin tan head. Lots of booze in the nose, some apple pear like esters. Flavor has lots of coffee, dark chocolate, there’s moderate fruitiness some pear. Medium body, medium carbonation. Too much booze on the finish needs some age.

Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2014
50 cl bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 7,90). Batch 731; BB 12/2018. Pours a very dark brown - pitch black in the glass. Light beige head retains and laces superbly. Loads and loads of sediment... did not pour carefully. Nose is... wooooaah... beautiful creamy sweet roasty coffee and chocolate with a hint of vanilla and loads of resinous citrusy hop bitterness. Taste begins with quite tamed chocolaty sweetness that gradually but surely turns into a mix of roasty malts and bitter hops while retaining the sweetness. Body plus medium, carbonation thin but somewhat prickly. This is my kind of stuff. Perfect to sip while listening to Nirvana’s less dramatic / more ironic stuff like "In Utero" after a veeery long time.

HippyHop (337) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
Pour is shockingly jet black with a finger of khaki cap with decent retention and great lacing. Nose is chocolate, molasses, burnt sugar, coffee and alcohol - everything you would expect from an IS. The nose is decent but the taste is....wowsers. Very sweet syrupy malt up front and then suddenly it explodes like a firework as the lingering alcohol and bitter chocolate permeate and take over everything, like Nazis only awesome, and in beer form. Remarkably drinkable for 10.5%, and smoother than Ella Fitzgerald doing a Cole Porter tune. Great stuff.

Freaky_tiki (672) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Pours heart of darkness black into the glass with a thin cap the colour of burnt golden sugar. This is a fantastic brew: velvet in the mouth, with coffee & dark chocolate, & a moderate bitter finish. The alcohol creeps into the brew like a thief in the night. If I were a brewer I’d buy a fistful of these & make into a serious case study of what one could do with the style. Highly recommended.
