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

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

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.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2009
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 (4633) - 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.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Bottle. A dark brown and thick body supports a fairly large and dense head of light brown foam. Aromas are lush... a mix of chocolate, anise, plum, molasses... It’s hard to pick out individual scents as there is so much going on. It seems like the chocolate takes over as it warms, morphing into an almost Nestle Quik like presence. Flavor is frickin dynamite! In spite of not picking up much of it in the nose, there is a very smokey, earthy body to it and the rest of the flavors swirl around poking through at times and complementing it. Vanilla and cream show up in the finish before yielding back to a bitter charcoal end. This is a much stronger brew than I would have even guessed and I’m wishing I had picked up more bottles. Now if we just had wide distribution and more affordable prices...

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Hoppy nose, Cenennial they say, citrusy but not sweet at all. Loads of chocolate perfume. Dark cacoa powder, shaved 70% dark chocolate, a touch of coffee and then a raspberry truffle. Very complex. Rich mouthfeel is by no means from the crankcase and oily viscousity is not dominating. Suprisingly finesseful for such a big beer and abv. Almost a year old, it could go for another year or so I say. However, this beer is open, layered and very generous. Raspberry and Blackberry continues to whisper as roasted nuts and lava cake twirl around an espresso with a lemon twist. The texture is just sinful, velvety and somehow refreshing just when the palate needs relief. Seamless construction, with roasted malts and hop bitternes elevated and drying at the same time. Excellent, as good as they come.

2009-06-05, bottle, batch 115, 8-5-9-4-18=44
Black color with huge head. It has a complex aroma with roasted malt, chocolate, ashes, hops that don’t fail to show some fruitness; very light but pleasant cheesy trace. Strong body, good mix of chocolate, roasted malt and caramel, and all supported by the minimum required sweeetness, and creamy; strong bitterness; quite strong alcohol presence, warming the mouth beyond the expected 10.5%, but never disturbing. In the final there are delicate waves of coffee and light liquorice. Excellent Imperial Stout, powerful well mixed and complex. Top.

2009-05-15, draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Black color; big creamy head. Very nice creamy roasted malt aroma, a bit cheesy too. Good body strength, smooth; strong roasted malt flavor, strong bitterness, but also a light sourness, that I would like not to find. Very good.

doublebock (528) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Very thick dark tan head with hint of red. Deep black color. Bready roast malt aroma. Palate is remarkable. Overpowering crisp and roasted finish. Alcohol is strong but subtle. Flavor of raisins and espresso.
