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

50 cl bottle, Batch 05. My 600th rating. Pours an impenetrable ebony with a coating, crema head. Nose of dark chocolate and coffee with a grapey sweetness. Silky mouthfeel with light carb tang. Milk chocolate, French roast and vanilla fade into grapefruit and lime peel. Lingering touches of pith and licorice. A big stout that never seems overdone. Sweet bitter balance and transition is perfect. Exceptional.

coldbrewky (1492) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Pours a deep dark Brown / oily black with a towering dual layered mocha head. Aquired in trade with Maria! Many thanks! Wow, this smells great! Roasted malts, coffe and acrid hops float along with the yeasty head. Drool...Drool. Coffe tones dominate body. Body is Medium and thightly packaged. Head is rocky. Lacing looks like snowcovered steps. A pleasant lasing bitter finish. This is probably magic on draft.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle. Ratebeer Christmas in Oshawa, December 2007. Black body with a good foamy khaki head. (4+) Strong alcohol presences in the aroma, with roast malt as the secondary dominant characteristic. Flavour has similarly alcohol profile that leaves the mouth tingly before you can properly address the underlying roast malt character. Very light chocolate struggles to gain recognition for its contribution. Smooth medium to full bodied palate. A very nice imperial stout that ultimately opts to mute its finer moments in favour of brash alcoholic bluster.<P>"...but you know us, we’re suckers for stouts." - Beerhugger
(Pause)...."Buuurrrrrrp!" - MDS

Xmas in Oshawa. Thanks! Batch 05, bottle 51. Black milkshake thick head. Nose is giant chocolate, caramel, toffee, huge roast, alcohol. Flavor is coffee, roast, burnt malt, big alcohol presence, some milk. Too much alcohol and a bit too bitter in the finish.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Aroma is slightly alcoholic and woody with a strange ester profile. Taste profile is sweet dark malt with touches of fruits from the esters. This is really strange. Actually, it is very European in the ester profile but jacked up in the creamy dense body more like a top imperial stout from the US. Finishes bitter and chocolate with a hop astringency. Nice.

Thanks to the Minnesota crew and to jespr for bringing this the States last summer. Enjoyed in the back room at the Cellars. As I like to say: this beer is like Oprah Winfrey: Thick, Dark and Rich. This really was a thick chewy beer. It was almost like taking a chocolate and letting it melt in a double pan and tossing in a few espresso beans and letting it melt down into a thick sauce and pouring it directly into a demi-tasse cup and sipping it. Just absolute heaven.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - NOV 24, 2007
Been looking forward to this one for quite some time, and chose to enjoy it as the first beer that evening to feel and taste its full potential. Appearance is a definate 5, poored the pitch black liquid into a relativly big glass resulting in an absolutly enormous head. As the head diminished (something that happened extremly slow) it left a hilly landscape on top of the black beer. Intense aroma that i find it hard to describe well enough to justify. Tons of different roasted malty notes, along with american hobs making this one a true sniffer. The first zip almost hurt my chin mussels, chocking the tastebuds. Very intense bitterness brough by both hobs and roasted malt, salty and sticky. Glad i bought a few of these so i’ll be able to taste again.

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2007
2007 Bottling

Very similar in appearance to the Pink Elephant IS we sampled just prior. Chocolate and coffee nose, powerful, burnt roast, with an underlying sweetness. Much dry in the mouth than I expected; some chocolate, strong coffee, some heat. Shows a bunch of class and tastes very young. Ta Voota.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2007
The archetypal clean American-style imperial stout. Bucketloads of beautifully-balanced chocolate, coffee and toast with a blast of piney, minty hops in the finish. Very straight-forward but beautiful intensity of flavour and it never puts a foot wrong (though it makes it hard to write much about it!) Just like Speedway actually. Really tasty stuff, and a very interesting contrast with the Pink Elephant immediately before it. Onya voota!
