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

Well-balanced, hefty stout! Pure black syrupy liquid with a wild biege head. Foamy, pillowy head hangs on for dear life for quite a while, and leaves a clingy lace as it disappears. Smooth aromas of multiple different toasty malts, a bit of smoke, black cherries, and chocolate. Flavors match, with some extra chocolate and coffee notes along with some tangy hops. Medium-heavy body with some sharp flavors, and a bit of alcohol in the finish (it does well to hide 10.5% until the finish).

Pours an almost completely opaque black color topped by a foamy, khaki colored head that shows good retention. Thing rings of lacing cling to the glass. The aroma is really nice and full of dark chocolate, bitter cocoa, fresh roasted coffee, and roasted grains. Toasted caramel and vanilla beans add to the depth of this brew, but also smooth out all the roasty elements in this one. The taste is equally balanced between the roasty flavors of dark chocolate and roasted coffee to the sweetness of the caramel, vanilla, and cream. Medium bodied, but maybe a touch thin for the style with balanced carbonation and the hides the alcohol very well. The finish is lengthy of dark chocolate and earthy hop bitterness. This is one of the better imperial stouts I have had lately. Really well done.

dchmela (2971) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Bottle courtesy Juiceisloose. Big black pour with a thin tan head. Roasted grain, chocolate malt aroma. Nice smooth body, not thick and cloying with lots of roasted grain and chocolate malt balanced with a nice hop bitterness. Very warming and easy to drink.

Pretty sexy impy. Great pour with a tan head. Lots of coffee, roasted malts, some bitter chocolate in the flavor and the aroma. Thick and full-bodied. A roast bomb, and is also a relief after drinking that Warlock brew.

Bottle from trade with Sprinkle. Thanks Mike! Pours a black color with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, oak and vanilla. Taste of coffee, roasted malts, over ripe fruit, and dark chocolate. Some bitterness in the finish.

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.

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.
