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

It is rare to find an imperial stout this good. Coffee and chocolate in the aroma as well as abundant malt. Thick and heavy beer, black, and almost no carbonation. Flavor has more coffee and chocolate, some oak, medium sweet, rich malt. Delicious.

Thanks to Yesper for bringing this to us. Pours a super oily looking blackish brown, with a nice tan head. Great dry oakiness as well as a good dose of chocolate, floral hops, and a hint of coffee. The flavor is amazing and exudes oak, and I’m too lazy to read the description, but I don’t think it is oaked. Good dose of chocolate, coffee, and a smoky roasted character are followed by a nice light floral hoopiness on the finish. This is one fantastic beer!

very dark roasted brown colour without much head in this fairly small pour. The aroma is chocolatey with a bit of roast and some hops. The flavour is really nice with some assertive hops that bring themselves out in the mid to after taste. At first I didst really get the full flavor but as I sipped on the complexity and wonderful roasted and chocolate flavours really developed. My sample does this no justice but I’m glad I was able to share with friends.

I don’t know what it is about Danish dark beers, but many seem to have really impressive viscosity. Black color, with a full dark brown head. Very nice nose, which hints of coffee bean, brown sugar and roast. Chew on it quite a bit and some marvelous flavors are revealed, but overall, it’s just not as characterful as some of my favorite Danish Imperials. Very nice on the mid-palate with chocolate-like flavors but the finish is short, overly roasty and bitter.

BIG THANKS to my friend from Copenhagen, sunevdj (Thanks Sune!). Batch 05, #211/400. Pours an absolutely beautiful used motor oil, black and syrupy, with a towering three finger creamy dark brown head; stellar lacing. Aroma is an excellent blend of espresso, bittersweet chocolate, roasty malts, light vanilla and a definite citrus hops presence. Wow, the flavor brings a notable bitterness of hops (!), bittersweet chocolate, and a good dose of freshly pulled espresso. The alcohol is completely undetectable. There is a lasting bitterness that lingers quite a while from all that coming @ you, but it seems to work quite well together, providing a full and creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Quite a unique take on the style IMO, and very enjoyable. Thanks again, Sune, for the chance to try this well crafted beer!

Rating 700. Batch 5 #212/400. Via trade with Marsiblursi. Many thanks. Pours a beautifal black with a nice coffee cream head, that starts out about 1 finger in width and thins a bit, but is still full there. Nose is very robust, lots of big roasty malts with a load of coffee. Taste is really forward, burnt malts come through first followed by notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. There is definetly a solid amount of bitterness with this beer, it says so in the description but it is clearly there, more so than most of the style, not sure if this is a bad thing or a good thing. The aftertaste feels like chewing on coffee beans. Its a solid Impy with some interesting bitter qualities that stand out as essentially different than many others in the style. Great beer overall.

(Bottle, Batch 05, Bottle #104/400) Pours an opaque oily black body with medium beautiful brown head. Aroma of rich chocolate, marshmallow, vanilla, light roastiness, some pine, and a hint of citrus. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, and citusy hops with a creamy mouthfeel and a bitter finish.

Sampled at Chris_o’s Shindig: dark fruit notes, anise; pretty alcoholic at first; balanced, roasty finish. Oh, yea.

Bottled. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is coffee, alcohol, chocolate and some spices. Flavour is chocolate, alcohol, coffee along with some roasted malts and vanilla. A bit too sweet, partly thanks to the alcohol, but otherwise a very nice brew. Aftertaste is vanilla and roasted malts.

Bottle directly from the source whom happens to also be my Summer Santa, served in my Expedition snifter (Batch 5, 397/400): Pour an inky black with one serious creamy tan head that you would rarely see except for those nitro machines and the lacing was simply to die for, would be a 6 for appearance if I could go that high! (for those rating the looks less than a 5, WTF do you want?)

The nose detects equal parts grassy, piney and resiny American hops, a light citric vapour, and some clove and pepper esters. Oh there is some chocolate and earthy, charred and smoky elements found coasting around for fun. Very inviting and I can’t wait to take the first sip...

The taste starts with a huge smack down of hop bitterness, every bit the equal to those Three Floyds hopped beasts I so like. But there is balance to be found too with a lush layer of chocolaty and smoky malts before an kick of espresso like bitterness finishes off the deal. This taste big without going overboard, something you can relax with and yet still walk and play afterwards.

The mouth feel is smooth yet not cloy due to a moderate hop bite and alcoholic warming. A big Impy that proves that you can stay true to the genre and still make something to interest the beer geek.
