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

Courtesy of Papsoe. Thank you, Henrik. The aroma is literally so thick and concentrated with cocoa, chocolate, fudge, esspresso and dark fruits that I wonder how it climbed out of the glass under it’s sheer weight. The body is deep black with a beautiful, craggy, creme brulee looking mocha head that is quite lasting. The fore is quality esspressow ith a healthy dose of cream. Dark chocolate, burnt fudge, black cherry, roasted/burnt malts, plum, prune and lots of hop bitterness make up the middle to the finish. Hints of licorice and vanilla appear here and there through all flavor ranges.

Beautiful body, tarry black with a deep brown perimeter. The thick and creamy dark brown head looks just like melting cappuccino ice cream. Eventually, repeated sips and tilts reveal a sparkling, glistening lace coating that is evenly dispersed. Heavy roasted grains that usher in the full-bodied aroma are supremely complex. Coffee and looming sweetness are adequately melded together. Marshmallow, chocolate and a hint of black vanilla follow. The nose has a huge bourbon and oak character that is amazingly dwarfed by a hoppy and fruity brandy barreled explosion. Fruit notes include melons, oranges and lemons. Alcohol is apparent but never a dominant feature, never a distraction from the quest to pick this apart. The most similar Danish beer I can compare the aromatic trait structure to is Olfabrikken Winter Stout; both are very wholesome and seem well-suited for a prelude to a long nap in front of a warming fireplace. The flavor is simpler and very full: roastiness leads, hops, coffee and chocolate equally share the remainder. Moderate sweetness stands no chance when pitted against such boisterous roast and dryness. Light anise and smoke that went unnoticed in the aroma reveal themselves in a sleek and smooth taste, further into the finish as well. The finish is very dry and moderate in length. Mouthfeel is very smooth, mildly carbonated and robust and vibrant. Palate is full-bodied and showcases excellent balance within the realms of the style.

I know not where inspiration comes from for this beer. In appearance, then in taste, Speedway Stout comes to mind. The aroma and finish remind me of the aforementioned Olfabrikken. All of this is inconsequential. The beer is a great success. That’s all that really matters.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle (courtesy Jacob) at Papsoe pre-KO tasting. A beautifully balanced imperial stout. Powerful but smooth. The alcohol is evident, but well integrated rather than intrusive. Lots of roast malt and chocolate. Hops provide a firm bitterness but that’s tempered by the rich malt. Finishes distinctly dry so it doesn’t feel too fat. Pitch black colour. A very nicely judged brew.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2007
Københavnske Øldage 07. Draught. Mr. Frederiksen truly is one black gentleman, and his head has a huge, light brown and creamy froth. His aftershave has loads of roasted malts and coffee and his kiss tastes like roasted malt, coffee, sweet licorice and he has a tendency to lean towards vinousity and even if his temperament seems to be harmonic and balanced, he certainly has one bitter streak, that he really shows in the finish. Boy - what a nice surprise - tomorrow I’ll taste the others, and at home I have the 3 bottled beers - that I look forward to tasting. 2202

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2007
A Mes rate: Draught @ Københavnske Øldage. Superb appearance; black body, tan head that settles to a thin yet solid film leaving good lace. Aroma of chocolate malt, dark fruit and thick dark rubber and oil. Flavour of heavy chocolate, serious malt and obvious alcohol but very well behaved. Lots of burn on the way down but in a good way as you would get from good whiskey. Parma violets in the finish leaving a lovely perfumey note. Palate is superb, tremendously thick but not at all cloying. Excellent beer.
