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, shared generously by jarspag for the April 12 D-Metal in Carlsbad. Thanks brosef! This bad boy was a standout brew for sure. Really delicious. Pitch black color with an oily texture, with a massive dark brown head developing and frothy maroon lacing around the glass edges. Looks kill with this beer. Aroma is a fat black chocolate bomb with ground coffee bean, figs & currant with charred wood and heavy use of oats and black malts. Creamy vanilla coffee flavor with bitter dark chocolate, oatmeal, grassy hops; all very well-rounded and balanced. Insanely smooth and chewy palate, creamy mouthfeel. Fantastic body with a warming alcohol finish.

Wanderer (33) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 11, 2008
Wow! This is one amazing stout. Pours pitch black. Such a full bodied stout, lots of chocolate, slight licorice and plenty coffee. Almost like Avery Mephistopheles little brother.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2008
Aroma is a huge rich coffee, some alcohol, dark chocolate and brazil nuts, black, with a medium sized dark cappuccino head. Full roasted malt flavour, strong coffee, dark chocolate and a trace of liquorice. Full bodied, tongue tinglingly bitter. Superb! Thanks radiomgb!

Thanks so much Maria. In a word, a cup of decent coffee. Above average mouthfeel, black as coffee. Its very good as long as you realize what it is trying to do. However I am not a coffee drinker, and prefer the other qualities of an RIS, but I am respecting that they accomplished what they intended. It is drinkable and smooth (for a coffee beer).

500ml, thanks to after4ever! I guess we’re drinking this one a little young, according to the bottle we should have waited a year, but patience is over-rated. Pours clear black with a lacy brown head. Chocolate and dark fruit nose. Medium body and light carbonation. Seems a little rough at first taste, but calms down pretty quickly - letting it sit for a bit civilizes it noticeably. The recommended aging would probably work even better - ah, well. Lots of little niceties in the taste, which is a pretty good match for the nose, but adds nutty molasses, coffee and smoke. A tasty RIS!

500. Batch 5. Bottle 50/400. Thank you so much, Maria! What an amazing score! Totally phenomenal beer.
Pours so close to black it’s probably not worth arguing about what other color it might actually be--ebony, maybe, but come on. This beer is black. Thick piles of brown creamy mousse, looks like carpeting from the Nixon era. Serious pile shag. Big pocks appear and it settles down to a volcanically rocky mass as it drops. Looks stunning.
Big roast and plum nose with tons of underlying fruit complexity--dates and figs and other bits of dark pitted tree products. This beer definitely improves as it warms a bit and decants; it was harsh and bitey right at first. And, to be totally honest, the label suggests not drinking it until next spring. Oh, yeah, right--like I was gonna actually wait that long.
Creamy body on the high side of medium. Definitely a testament to restraint: with this much alcohol, aroma, flavor, and head, the fact that this beer doesn’t make you feel like flossing your teeth between sips says a lot about the brewer’s skill. Lots of different flavors on the mid-palate: smoke, roast, black bread, ash, plums, dates, figs. This is a seriously phenomenal impy. Long, slightly boozy but mostly roasty finish.

fordest (2015) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Bottle thanks to Papsoe. Lots of chocolate and roasted malts in the aromas. Very enticing. Flavor fell off just a bit as it gave up some of the sweetness in place of strong bitter black coffee flavors. Still very very good.

radiomgb (2462) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2008
Deep black in colour, average sized tan coloured head, great lacing. The aroma was of dark chocolate, roasted malts, light alcohol, chalky, light smoke, lightly sweet. The flavour is of chocolate, some coffee, quite roasty but at the same time quite smooth, creamy turning bitter. Highly bitter malty mouthfeel, medium/large body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, lots of chocolate, chalky, very bitter. Very big, intense, roasty. Definitely packs a punch.

500ml bottle obtained in trades with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>TheCheeseMan, and <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>MPA. Thanks Dan and Mads-Peter.
