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

LilBeerDoctor (3713) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours inky black with a thick chocolate head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, rich sweet malt, and alcohol. Flavor is a nice blend of chocolate and rich sweet roasted malt. Alcohol is well hidden. Very smooth palate. Definitely a very good impy. Not very complex, but very smooth so it wins points there. 8/4/8/4/16 (4.0/5)

50 cl bottle. Pours an oily black color. Aroma is chocolate,coffee,fruit and some booze. Taste is about the same as the aroma, a bit to much booze for my taste but still a great beer!

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Bottle shared by dickensonbeer. Deep brown black beer. Aroma is quite nice. Sweet malty aroma. Toasted malts, sweet and dark. Heavy salty/savoury character. Hops are fairly herbal and chewy. Heavy boozy flavour and aroma. The beer is quite intense and chewy but it doesn’t really work all that well for me. 7 4 7 3 14 Deep black pour with a thick creamy white head. The aroma is very rich and chewy. A deep fudgey cocoa-laden glass of goodness. Softly bitter and roasty but with a nice restrained sweetness as well. Really intense and well balanced. Excellent flavour and a lingering dark malt flavour. 8 5 8 5 18

50 cl bottle (batch 5, #22 of 400) shared by FlacoAlto - Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, licorice, and dark esters. Flavor is also roasted malt, licorice, and dark esters with addition of a bit of coffee. Has quite the roasty aftertaste. Medium body. A good beer. Thanks Sebastian.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle, courtesy Papsoe. Well done, sir. Pours pitch black, thick creamy head, creamy lacing. Big on alcohol in the nose, and big floral hops. Very distant roast. Flavor is big, full of roast, with a heavy body wrapped around licorice and alcohol. Very tasty. Huge body, so much full of roast and...body. Not sure why I wrote that down. But it’s great.

rbesg08 grand tasting, bottled. my palate was slightly impaired by this stage of the day, but this was tasty enough to make an impression. black with a steady light brown head, loads of roasted flavours - coffee, cocoa and burnt toast with some stewed pear sweetness, very bitter finish, excellent stuff

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2008
50 cl bottle. Pours a viscous pitch black body with a beautiful foamy and creamy chocolate brown head, excellent retention, with tons of heavy lacing. The nose is roasty with tons of licorice, bitter chocolate, coffee, light alcohol, and light leafy hops. It smells delicious. A little too overly roasty though, the flavor is loaded with burnt malt astringency. There is a light acidic twang on the finish that I do not care for as well. Not much in the way of chocolate or coffee, no smoothness or subtlety. The heavy handed hopppy finish is a bit metallic as well and really does not mesh well with the roast for me. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and oily with fizzy moderate carbonation. I wish that this was a lot creamier and softer. This is just one of my least favorite ways to do this style. Big astringency, metallic hops, then high alcohol? Not for me.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer. Pours nearly opaque with a dense khaki head. The aroma is chewy with dark chocolate, a touch of licorice and tarry notes. Slick bodied with a very salty flavor. A bit mineral-like upfront as well, followed by a gritty bitter dark malt character. There is also lots of rich bitter dark chocolate into the tarry finish. Not bad, just seems like another gigantic Impy without subtlety.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 17, 2008
On tap at EBF 2008, Copenhagen. Pitch black and pure velvet. Leaves lots of lace on the glass. Superb flavour - really firm and deep. Awesome malt flavours and just the right amount of balancing bitterness.
