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

Maris (1119) - 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.

KW92 (277) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 27, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Na pierwszym planie orzechy włoskie, czekolada i kawa. W tle paloność.
SMAK: Z początku słodki - karmelowy. Posmak ziemisto-palony. Na finiszu kawa. Alkohol wyczuwalny - nie przeszkadza.
OGÓLNIE: Dobry Imperialny Stout. Osobiście preferuje te "gęste/oleiste", jednak w tej wersji prezentuje się również bardzo dobrze. Aromat mógłby być intensywniejszy...

Black color, but no deep black. Low tan head. Roastness really light in aroma, caramel and toffe more intense than chocolate and coffee. Medium body.

Shark_Pants (400) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2015
Black like an abyss, with a small tan head. Reasonably subdued nose, but has notes of cocoa, grains, molasses and booze. The taste is very malt focused - dark chocolate, treacle, licorice, soy. Quite smooth and lighter bodied than expected, but would probably become cloying if it were more viscous. An elegant and restrained imperial stout.

yourilevesque (231) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Bière brune presque noire, cette impériale stout est douce et agréable. Nez puissant de gâteau aux fruits au Cognac qu’on sert habituellement pendant le Temps des Fêtes, de dates et auquel s’ajoute une touche de fumée très plaisante. Le liquide en bouche est rond et présente des saveurs d’acool non dissimulées qui me plaisent beaucoup. C’est chaud, délicat et réconfortant. Un pointe de tabac se mêle de la partie et se marie parfaitement à la réglisse noire. Décidément, son côté plutôt collant et sirupeux me plaisent beaucoup. Une bonne amertume due aux malts bien serrés. Bière de très bonne compagnie, même par une soirée chaude.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Its color was dark brown with a tan head. The aroma was dark fruit and roasted malt. The flavor was roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and dark stone fruit.

Douberd (3064) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2015
(Amager Hr. Frederiksen) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 10.5% Black coloured beer with almost two full fingers of thick, dark beige head sitting on top, with very good retention. Medium lacing left around the glass. Aroma seems weird at first but after some breathing in the glass and some swirling, nice notes emerging of light chocolate, roasted malts, some herbs, liquorice, vanilla, alcohol. Rich taste, sweet at first with alcohol, vanilla, liquorice, chocolate, moccha, fruity touches follow, roasted malts, cookies, herbs. Medium to full body, good soft carbonation, smooth and creamy texture. Very good.

zenkis (652) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAY 5, 2015
I think I samlped earlier version. Pours balsam black, on nose- sweet dark malts, dark caramel, maybe a bit alcohol. Taste- medium sweet and light to moderate bitter. Pleasant, silky texture, thick body. Nothing extra imp stout, but very pleasant sipping, well balanced beer with dominant malt, caramel emphasis.

ABT_S54 (256) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
50cl bottle served in a snifter. Dark brown with an off white head which disappears quickly. Aroma is subdued for the style with just the bare ingredients shining through rather than any additional flavours which would have been most welcome. Mouthfeel was disappointingly thin for the style, strength and reputation. In fact the Nogne Imperial Stout being sampled at the same time had this beat on all areas and most importantly price. Quite a weak effort. I have yet to try a good Amager Imperial Stout and only have Danish Metal left to try.

Bottle. A truly great beer! Appearance: black colour with thick beige foam. Aroma: not very strong, roasted malts, coffee but also hops and floral notes. Taste: heavy and rich, lots of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruity notes, great balance between malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Full body. Complex and delicious!
