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

jason (1819) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Bottle. Poured a deep black body with nice head. Aroma is a nice blend of milk choclate, hops, molasses and burnt bacon. Flavor is very creamy, milk choclate, grassy hops and a very light touch of coffee. Alcohol was not detected nor tasted but overall this was very thin considering its reputed character.

FlacoAlto (4127) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Bottle 22 / 400, Batch 5, Best By Date March 2010; Sampled 2nd RB Tucson Tasting, September 2008
Pours with a darkish, brown colored head that sits on top of a simply, opaque, black beer. There is lots of roast malt character in the aroma with notes of dark cocoa, darkly roasted coffee beans, and a finish that almost has a smoky note to it with its concentrated malt aromas. There is a touch of earthiness to the nose as well as some light notes similar to burnt, dried figs.

This is lightly sweet tasting at first, which accentuates some dark cocoa notes, but a substantial roast character quickly kicks in and counters the sweetness with ample coffee notes and a very deep, roast bitterness that dominates the finish. The roast character accentuates quite a bit of charcoal-like acidity and some harsh, acrid notes. Alcohol definitely adds to the harshness in the finish as well. This is a bit more enjoyable than I may be making out to be, but it can be quite harsh in the finish at time; ultimately the roast character seems to be a bit more than the base malt character can support (but that is probably just me).

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2008
UPDATED: APR 5, 2009 Nice black with a small light brown head. Very bright and oily aroma. Very inviting and complex. Very tasty, medium bodied, oily imperial stout. Allot of caramell, chocolate, coffe, hops and a nice fruity finish. Long roasted aftertaste. Great beer, almost too drinkable.

asheft (2895) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2008
[on tap at EBF 2008] Roasty sherry aroma with a little oak vanilla and notes of ethanol, hazelnut, and scotch tape. Thick black appearance with lasting, lacy foam. Flavour is a blast of warm, coffee, roast, vinous, almost red wine bitterness. Slightly medicinal. Medium body and dry with a lasting dark malt bitterness.

Pinball (11808) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2008
batch115. pours totally black, setles black with a brown head, rather thick. aroma: a little too weak compared to my expectations, but the aroma is great. coffee, licorice, roasted stuff. not much alc. flavor : extremely well balanced, roasted stuff, licorice, aftertaste bends the taste towards a combination of dark chocolate and roasted stuff. palate : bubbles up in my mouth a little, which i don’t like, but palate is rather good except for this. the fantastic balance makes it a joy to take sip after sip, trying to figure what different flavors are in there. still, i think there are better imp stouts that have lower ratings than this one.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Sampled @ Tucson Tasting. Good roasted chocolate aroma that hits the nose. Whis more interest for me any way was the black body and the vanilla swirle in the tan cramy head.. Good chocolate creamy flavor. A roasty coco aftertaste good stout. Thanks to either Sabastian or Craig for this one.
