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

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 Pour is excellent with a black body and just hints at dark brown highlights up to the light; head is tan, full, mostly lasting, pillowy, and very frothy while leaving tight lace rings all around. Notes is a little faint but very pleasant with plenty of port notes, blueberries being prominent, lots of cake-like notes, some light espresso, light toffee, and some burnt caramel. Flavor is a deceptively roasty with bitterness hiding underneath the sweet, rich malty notes which begin the progression; cake, burnt caramel, similar blueberry notes, and light chocolate syrup to begin but eventually the espresso, dark breads, dark chocolate, and floral hops make their presence known lingering into the finish. Palate is creamy, almost lively, mildly warming, nearly full, and drying in the finish. Finish is drying a bit with espresso, dark chocolate, and burnt caramel. A very good Imp with a lot of malt richness and complexity and a deceiving roast and moderately high bitterness. Incredibly drinkable and scary at the ABV and nice to be able to experience both malt complexity and intense hop and roast bitterness in the same beer. My only complaint with the beer is the European-esque nose and the faint cardboard notes. Very good beer from a very good brewery.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Bottle at PIB. Pours a deep brown, almost black with a solid tan head. Smell is hefty on roasted notes, with chocolate, dark fruit, coffee. Flavor much the same, dark roast, chocolate and coffee vying with dark fruit and some vanilla. A nice bitter but also slightly boozy finish. Very tasty brew, one of the better of the festival for me.

trevor211 (1470) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Beautiful pour. Pitch black with a big, dark, burnt-mocha head. Lots of chocolate and molasses on the nose, overshadowing the roasty coffee notes. Some vanilla, and a bit of booze. Far more coffee in the flavor, which isn’t nearly as thick as I’d hoped. Had a bunch of potential, and it’s very good, but this could have been fantastic. The booze comes through, and it lacks body. Really nice on the nose, but it’s (gently) downhill from there.

ajm (1066) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle from City Beer. Nose is rich chocolate coffee beans. COlor i a flat, intimidating jet black. Flavor is hugely full and prickly: more coffee, dark chocolate, sweet roast that is somehow kind of burnt, but not annoyingly so. Light spice, light vanille. Giant, minerally and full, but not dirty Danish - no mud, a smooth finish that is also long. No green grape skin. I want more.

Dark brown in color with a good tan head. The smell is roasty, chocolate, prunes, coffee, dark fruits. Solid. The taste is roasty, malts, chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits. Good.

Bottle. Amazing beer. Pours black with small tan head. Great roasted coffee notes, smoke, dark chocolate, figs and liquorice. Lovely.

500 ml bottle
This has been in the cellar for a while. I cracked it open not able to wait any longer. Hopefully another batch of this makes it to Ohio so I don’t have to trade for it like the first time. This is going on my list of favorites in case I do ever see it again.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep oily black body is the definition of a perfect imperial stout. A thin soft head the color of sand is a nice addition as is the off white lacing that slides downs the sides of the glass. Smoke, chocolate, brownies, rich coffee, and vanilla are only the start. Along with those are fresh cookie dough and cherry licorice. Rich, cohesive, and focused it leaves a mark on the nose.

Flavor / Palate - Smoke or ash is the first impression but is soon followed by anise, oak, and a bit of hops. The chocolately transition yields to a warm finish. This is a dessert beer that goes well with almost anything. Amager has hit a home run with this.

Pours black with a small tan head. Coffee,vanilla, chocolate and some dark fruits. Alcohol dominates a little bit to much. Overall a good stout.

JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2009
Pitch black colour, thick foamy tanned settled head. Coffee, dark chocolate. Not very bitter. Not much alcohol. Lots of burnt nuances and some sharp bitterness at the end. Similar to concentrated black licorice. Medium - thick body. Too burnt for me. Purchased in Kihosk

badgerben (4651) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Pitch black color with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, very dark chocolate, light oak and some vanilla. Extremely chalky mouthfeel and taste. French Roast-level coffee. Powerfully bitter, being a mix of coffee, roasted barley and hops. It struck me as sea-ish. If you think of how you can tell a Scotch was aged by the sea, same thing applies here.
