Danish: Det er næppe nogen hemmelighed, at vi her på Amager Bryghus har en helt særlig forkærlighed for Imperial Stouts - den ædleste og mest noble af alle øltyper. Faktisk er vi her i bryghuset hele tiden i gang med at udvikle nye varianter af denne ædle drik. Som altid skruer vi godt op for det hele, og sådan er det naturligvis osse i denne øl: hele 8 maltvarianter skulle der til og tre humletyper, hvor vi er særligt stolte over at præsentere kongen over dem alle – han hedder Zeus. Amager Imperial Stout er en øl så sort som selveste arvesynden, dækket af det tætteste og mest cremede lysebrune skum. Kaffe- og chokoladetonerne er meget tydelige, men de kommer udelukkende fra malten, mens duften er fuld af vanille. Amager Imperial Stout er en i alle henseender voldsom øl for den krævende og erfarne øldrikker, der ikke er bange for at udfordre alle sanser.

English: It is hardly a secret that we at the Amager Brewery have a deep rooted love for Imperial Stouts - the noblest of all beers. In fact, we are constantly in the process of developing new variations of this fine beverage, this variation has eight malts and three hops. We are particularly proud to present what we feel is the king of hops: Zeus.
Amager Imperial Stout is a beer as black as mortal sin , crowned with the densest and most creamy light brown head. The coffee and chocolate accents are very distinct, but they come exclusively from the malt, while the aroma is rich with vanilla.
Amager Imperial Stout is in all respects a fierce beer for the more demanding and experienced beer drinkers who are not afraid to challenge their senses.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, wheat malt, oats, brown sugar, hops and yeast

marcus (9213) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours dark brown with a rich tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a full-bodied chocolate and vanilla flavor with a lingering coffee finish. Complex and tasty.

From a 50 cl bottle shared at home. Pours black with a thin tan head. Earthy nose. Flavors of licorice and some dark cherries and plums, with some smokey notes. Yum, yum.

Koelschtrinker (17675) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
Schwerer, schokoladig malziger Antrunk mit geringer Röstigkeit. Intensiv bleibend wobei die Malzigkeit öfters mal zurück steckt, das Bier wirkt dadurch trocken, zum Ende leicht bitter und weniger vollmundig als es sein könnte. 11/10/8/8/8/8

angelkostvo (1164) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 3, 2014
Black colour, one finger mocha head. Aroma of coffee, dark fruits, wine, muscavado sugar, chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet, a bit coffee bitterness. Medium to full body, silky texture, soft carbonation. Very nice and interesting

Zer0 (1207) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep black with a brown head. Aroma is big vanilla, chocolate, liquorice, wood, alcohol, some coffee and toffee. Not a lot of hop prescence as expected. Pretty damn sweet and moderate bitter. Impressive brew. Long bitter finish, including lots of chocolate and vanilla. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Great.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle from Bierkompass!
Pours deep black with flat, creaky browmish head. Smells strong malty with lots of coffee, chocolate and some alcohol. Starts with massive coffee’ish roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and bitter burnt malts. Middle part is malty roaaty, with lots of bitter coffee and sweetish chocolate. Goes into a coffee-malty finish with sweet chocolate and lots of roasted malts.

alexsdad06 (9107) - Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 (6/2011, notes). Pours dark brown to black with a purple sheen and a small beige head. The aroma has some sweetness, dark malts, chocolate, light roast and dark fruit. The flavor has roasted malt, dark fruits, some acidity, chocolate. This is decent enough, but doesn’t quite carry the body of American style Imperial stouts.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a thick pitch black color with a small foamy head that fades normally to a ring. Rich, roasty vanilla aroma with some chocolate, licorice, caramel, and milk. Taste has a very light chocolaty sweetness up front but quickly countered by a strong bitter roasted coffee taste. Pretty intensely bitter beer with lots of dark roast and vanilla. Finish brings out some light licorice and caramel too. Thick body with a very creamy and chewy mouthfeel. Overall, I’d like some sweetness or something else to counter the very intense bitterness. But it’s still pretty enjoyable with a really nice aroma.

shigadeyo (3635) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

6/07/2011: Amager Imperial Stout... Aroma: Milky Dutch cocoa. Appearance: Beer is near black in color and has a brown head. Flavor: Slight meatiness that quickly disappears; milk and dark chocolate blend; heavy dark fruits with some balancing acidity. Palate: Body is medium-full; smooth, milky texture. Overall: Very drinkable and very sessionable, but would like more depth and complexity.

1 pt. 0.9 fl. oz. bottle (10% ALC/VOL) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #296 for this beer.
