COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Shared by someone nice at the sexual chocolate release. Pours a dark black that allows more light than i would have expected, and a head that is much darker than the beer lets on. Interesting pour. The nose is roasty, chocolate, coffee, some sweetness, a phenolic aspect to it as well, some alcohol comes through. Flavor is earthy, some grain bitterness, chocolate and coffee roast, warming, mild waxy bitterness. Warming and bitter on the palate.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle at the Sexual Chocolate release party. One of the better Imperial stouts of the evening! Pitch black pour with a thick brown head and spotty lace. Big roasted malt nose. Creamy mouth-feel. Nutty up-front with long roasty bittersweet finish

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2009
Black colored with medium sized beige head. Rich aroma with roastiness dominating, vanilla and some bourbon also present. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also strongly roasted and caramelly. Vanilla also with vinous tone, which lasts in drying and hopped aftertaste.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle at the Sexual Chocolate release party. The pour is opaque black with plenty of brown head. The nose is really nice with sweet cream and lots of roasted malt goodness. The flavor is mild at first, but finishes with a nice roasted bitterness. Its as easy to drink as any dry stout.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Batch Pours an extremely dark, inky, virtually black color. A massive, creamy, mocha colored head shows fantastic retention, and leaves thick, clumpy sheets of lacing all the way down the glass. Aromas are really nice, notes of bittersweet dark cocoa, freshly crushed espresso beans, burnt caramel, and roasted grains working together wonderfully. Rolled oats and traces of vanilla bean lend a bit of softness to the avalanche of roasty elements. Flavors are really well balanced, with sweetness, bitterness, roast and cream pulling in equal and opposite directions. The chocolate is deep and dark, almost like an 80% cocoa bar, but scorched caramel and oatmeal are there to smooth things out. The coffee components tastes really fresh, which makes me believe this brew is probably not great for aging. If there is on letdown, it is that the palate is slightly on the thin side for the style, but the balanced carbonation and well-hidden alcohol make up for it. Bitter chocolate, earthy hops, and roasted grains linger for a good while after the finish. This is an excellent beer.

Bottle shared by robert at SL. Dark black in color, good two finger sized toffee colored head. Weird aroma of rubbing alcohol??? Taste was coffee, oats, roasted malts and a touch of hops. But...it had a weird aftertaste of the rubbing alcohol....which ruined the beer for me. Thick in texture. Overall, dissapointed.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2009
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A and Hannu N! Black with creamy dark tan head. Rich coffee aroma with also charcoal, chocolate, leather, methol and warming alcohol. Strongly roasty coffeish flavor with firm bitterness, charcoal, chocolate, nuts, vanilla warming alcohol and mentholy hops. Full bodied, with slight roasty astringency. Carbonation is a bit sharp, lower carbonation would match better with strong roastiness. Very roasty, a bit too roasty for me, but still very good.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 My Bottom Line:
This pillowy and nourishing Imperial Stout is the setting for succulent coffee, oatmeal and dark chocolate biscuits, an osmosis which seamlessly morphs into roastiness and coniferous hops right before those most luxurious of cookies return. World-class, every way I look at it.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the darkness.
-The mouthfeel is cushiony and full, but never heavy.
-The flavor profile offers exactly what the aroma had proposed.
-Alcohol is not much of a factor in the flavor profile.
-I preferred this to their "Imperial Stout", even though the latter is still very good.
-Dark fruit appear here and there.

Bottles and on tap at Henrik Ol & Vinstove, Bergen.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottle shared by nqualls @ the Barrios tasting. Poured black with a creamy tan head that left light lacing. Roasty aroma with a slight hoppy background. The flavor also had roasty malts with coffee, chocolate and light hops to round it out. Medium to full body, sweet, with a light alcohol finish. Very decent.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2009
500 mL bottle shared with the group at the Barrios Nashville tasting. Poured a dark brown color with a two finger brown head that dissipated into a good bit of lacing. The aroma was hoppy, with a bit of roasted malt. The flavor was roasted malt and a bit of coffee, with a bitter finish. The palate was above average, with a creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation and a medium/full body. Overall I think this is a very good beer. It was tasted against Surly Darkness, Brooklyn Black Ops and Southern Tier Oat, so I think it may have been lost a little among the bigger fish.
