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

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.

Totally black with dark beige firm head. Leafy aroma with notes of coffee, oil, spices and chocolate. Really bitter flavour with notes of cream, cofee, milkchocolate, hops and coconut. Fruity with alcoholic notes. Medicinal bitter ending. A truly magnificent imp.stout.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Hoppy nose, Cenennial they say, citrusy but not sweet at all. Loads of chocolate perfume. Dark cacoa powder, shaved 70% dark chocolate, a touch of coffee and then a raspberry truffle. Very complex. Rich mouthfeel is by no means from the crankcase and oily viscousity is not dominating. Suprisingly finesseful for such a big beer and abv. Almost a year old, it could go for another year or so I say. However, this beer is open, layered and very generous. Raspberry and Blackberry continues to whisper as roasted nuts and lava cake twirl around an espresso with a lemon twist. The texture is just sinful, velvety and somehow refreshing just when the palate needs relief. Seamless construction, with roasted malts and hop bitternes elevated and drying at the same time. Excellent, as good as they come.

Hints of raisins and dates in the aroma. Hints of alcohol and sweet malt are present as well. Pours dark brown/black with dark tan head. The head is dense like a meringue. Very nice dark malt flavor mixed with alcohol. Very smooth and easy drinking. This sets the bar for Imperial Stouts.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Drank this immediately after the Fru. Even thicker. Rich, rich licorice aroma. Amazingly delicious, a true imperial version of the Fru, with the one of the most robust, solid dark roast characters I ever encountered. Masterpiece. (#4036, 12/13/2010)

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2007 On tap at Ølbaren. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head. Roasted and malty with notes of coffee, chocolate, dark and dried fruits, cocoa and hops. Very well balanced. Had this at a blindtasting where I rated it somewhat higher - so I’m gonna change my ratings from: 8-4-8-4-17=4.1

Draft @ Ølbaren. Pitch black with a great, enourmous beautiful brown head! Aroma is coffee, liqourice, smoke, US hops, dark chocolate and black currant. Great flavour where the bitterness sets in immediately. Beside that there’s roasted malts, chocolate, espresso, liqourice and long bitter and dry finish. World class!

Thanks to Dickonsonbeer for sharing this. I’ve been after this one for quite some time. Bottle # 294/400, batch 5 and BB 05 2010. Poured pitch black with a medium sized tan head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is strong roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is of roasted coffee, vanilla, chocolate, with a nice creamy smooth finish. Hops are present, but balanced very well with the rest of this incredible Imperial stout. Thanks Paul!!!

I’m not quite sure that any hyperboley I use is quite fitting enough. This is a king of beers. Firstly before any other remark I make I must emphasize how well controlled/hidden the alcohol is. This tastes no stronger in abv. than Mikkellers Beer Geek Breakfast which is around 7% On with the comment: Lovely almost oak like-vanilla aromas greet you from the glass, enticing and sensual. Definite coffee, bitter/sweet on the nose. Looks fantastic in the glass. Total black hole. Keeps a nice off white-grey-brown head. Palate is soft and smooth, but not at all sickly for an impy stout. Slight carbonation keeps it crisp with every sip you take. Flavour is almost rum-like, touch of sugar cane, dense roasted barley, sweet malt, more coffee (espresso) some ultra bitter dark choc. Quite an asertive hop pressence underneath all the roasted coffee notes. This beer is quite mind altering in it’s effects! Basically I love Mikkeller, and this beer basically hits perfectly a balance between the BG Breakfast and BG brunch at quite an affordable price. My first ever Amager beer and certainly not my last. Fantastic! Quite simply one of the best beers I have had the pleasure of tasting.
