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

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2015 My Bottom Line:
This pillowy and nourishing Imperial Stout is the setting for succulent coffee, oatmeal and dark chocolate biscuits, an osmosis which seamlessly morphs into roastiness and coniferous hops right before those most luxurious of cookies return. World-class, every way I look at it.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the darkness.
-The mouthfeel is cushiony and full, but never heavy.
-The flavor profile offers exactly what the aroma had proposed.
-Alcohol is not much of a factor in the flavor profile.
-I preferred this to their "Imperial Stout", even though the latter is still very good.
-Dark fruit appear here and there.

Many bottles and once on tap at Henrik Ol & Vinstove, Bergen.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottle shared by nqualls @ the Barrios tasting. Poured black with a creamy tan head that left light lacing. Roasty aroma with a slight hoppy background. The flavor also had roasty malts with coffee, chocolate and light hops to round it out. Medium to full body, sweet, with a light alcohol finish. Very decent.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2009
500 mL bottle shared with the group at the Barrios Nashville tasting. Poured a dark brown color with a two finger brown head that dissipated into a good bit of lacing. The aroma was hoppy, with a bit of roasted malt. The flavor was roasted malt and a bit of coffee, with a bitter finish. The palate was above average, with a creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation and a medium/full body. Overall I think this is a very good beer. It was tasted against Surly Darkness, Brooklyn Black Ops and Southern Tier Oat, so I think it may have been lost a little among the bigger fish.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle from Nqualls at Barrio’s tasting. Pours a deep brown/black with a brown head. Aroma of roast and alcohol. Medium bodied but with that nice earthy mouthfeel so common in Danish beers. Flavor of tobacco, coffee, and dark roasted malts countered by a balancing spicy bitterness. Alcohol and yeast apparent on the finish. Decent.

Butters (4045) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle at Barrios’ Impromptu Tasting to pop Smitty’s Surly. Most likely the second batch. Dark brown with tan head. Coffee nose with some alcohol. Flavor is more bitter coffee with a sour lactic twinge. Medium thin body with a moderately low carbonation. Masks the alcohol well though. Bitter chocolate finish.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2009
2nd Batch 50cl bottle. Pours a oily near black with a medium/large gray/beige creamy froth on top. Aroma of sour cream, lots of oats, some roast, a bit fruity, some vanilla, lightly perfumy. Huge flavor, soo creamy, lots of oats, lightly sweet, light bitter coffee, dark dark chocolate, assertive hops, a bit of sour cream, almost like an imperial milk stout. Coffee and cream finish. Very smooth and creamy palate, hint of grittiness, abundance of super fine bubbles. Fantastic Imperial Stout that is best consumed on the fresh side.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of light alcohol, light residual sugar, coffee, roasted malt, light cocoa notes, really solid impy aroma. Flavor improves on the richly roasted coffee character, bold, brazen roasted malt creating a coffee flavor stronger than in some coffee stouts. Also a pleasant chalkiness in the body of this beer that keeps the monster from getting syrupy, and completely eliminates any abrasive alcohol quality in the mouth. Lovely impy.

LilBeerDoctor (3737) - 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)
