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 (1067) - 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.

Procent (231) - POLAND - FEB 8, 2015
W aromacie czekolada, karmel, zdecydowanie słodko, w tle kawa, ale to kawa z mlekiem, lekko chmielowy. Piana obfita, u szczytu kemowa, ładny lacing. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. W smaku gorzka czekolada, kawa z mlekiem, lekki karmel, kakao. Jest bardzo kremowe, gęste. Goryczka wysoka, trochę kawowa, trochę świeża, chmielowa, ale kontrowana na słodko, nawet lekko waniliowo .Piwo ma złożony aromat i smak. Jest po prostu dobre.

scirtes (20) - POLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle, best before 12/2019. Malt, cocoa and coffee aromas. Almost black, with medium, short lasting head, and no lacing. Slightly sweet, with some lactose-like taste (which I don’t like in this beer), medium bitterness. Well balanced, but I prefer more complex imperial stouts.

A darkest night pour. No highlights beyond the black, even extremely backlit. Mocha coloured head, albeit a thin one. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, The Taste’s are very similar, with a sneaky bitterness, entering the mix. Not a sweet chocolate stout at all. Overall, while I’ve had more obvious stouts, that get right in your face, this is one of the more subtle, extremely high quality, world class stouts I have ever had the pleasure to drink.

tom10101 (3257) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle (500 ml). Split 2-ways with the lady.

Appearance: Black with reddish reflects, a medium beige head and litlle lacing.

Aroma: Cocoa powder comes first followed by a mix of caramel, roasted malt and red fruits/berries as well as hints of alcohol.

Taste: A good mix of cocoa, caramel, dark fruits, roasted malt, alcohol, wood, pine, light spicy/peppery notes and moderate bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. A tad oily mouthfeel. Moderate bitter and warming finish.

Overall: This Imperial Stout is all about balance. Nothing is overpowering and it’s quite easy to drink the whole bottle (I’m not saying it’s drinkable, but it’s not cloying). Very tasty. I really liked this one.

MarcoDL (2513) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle. Black oily pour, small brownish head. Aroma is mostly roasted malt, but also unusually hoppy and fruity. Taste is roasted malt, cacao and coffee at first, then some red fruit, citrus, vanilla and oak. Quite bitter and dry aftertaste. Abv well hidden. At first I didn’t like the bitter finish, but as it warmer up it got better, more smooth.
