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

Maris (1153) - Canberra, - NOV 12, 2012
From a 500ml bottle on 12/11/2012 (batch no. 413, BB 02/2017). Pours close to black with a lovely medium light tan head. Has a lovely chocolatey aroma with some woody and unusual floral notes. The flavour is sublime, with an explosion of milk chocolate, along with some caramel fudge, a with a dash of espresso, a touch of vanilla, and a hint of dark fruit. Countering is a massive roasty bitterness and big hop presence. The palate is velvety and the carbonation perhaps a shade higher than a typical for the style. Incredibly moreish and easy to drink for something that’s 10.5%. An astoundingly complex, exceptional imperial stout.

hrabren (143) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 20, 2015
0.5 l bottle from Hoppiness, Koper. Dark brown with big frothy beige head, some sediment floats in the glass. Roasty aroma, dark bread, alcohol, whisky-like. Very dry, hoppy even, full body. Roasty bitterness. Not as complex as I would have thought.

Saeglopur (1051) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 18, 2015
500 ml bottle from Saveur Bière, shared at RB Tasting Linz.
Black body, with a medium, dense, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, dark fruits, alcohol.
Tastes of coffee, liquorice, cocoa, wood, booze.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty-bitter, with liquorice, coffee, dry cocoa, wood.

Very nice. Strong, roasty, but a bit too much liquorice for my taste. The coffee notes are really nice though. Not my preferred style of an an Imperial Stout, but very good nonetheless.

Duzo lepszy dnia następnego od otwarcia. Po napowietrzeniu oddaje bardzo ładnie wszystko co ma w sobie: zbożową paloność, kawę, czekoladę i suszone owoce śliwki, rodzynki, figi. Pyszny i wart swojej ceny (jako jeden z nielicznych risów)
