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

[Bottle, big thanks go to Skyview for sharing this rarity!] Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma is dominated by cocoa and black pepper with a good deal of roasted malt also present. Taste is sweet initially but there actually is a fair amount of bitterness in there after that. Roasted malt, black pepper and cocoa are once agin the main elements, with the roasted malt the strongest this time. Good thick mouthfeel with a fairly long finish. A good imperial stout that I’m glad I got a shot at trying.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Received a single 500 ml bottle from Papsoe via trade and shared at the Heritage Liquors Inauguration beer tasting in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with an average tan head that has some nice retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, chocolate and some light coffee with a touch of pepper and some smoked wood. Taste is thick, full bodied, light carbonated with some flavors of toasted dark malt, coffee, a touch of vanilla and some citrus/flowery hop character. Finish is creamy with a mild bitterness that slowly lingers after the finish.

Imperial Stout #100. Big thanks to Skyview for sharing what was an excellent beer and turned out to be my 100th Impy Stout! Black color with a medium head. Light coffee and chocolate aroma. Lots more of both of those in the flavor. A bitter malt base. Some saltiness. A bit of vanilla towards the finish. The bitterness was insanely hidden. This certainly didn’t seem sweet, but it didn’t seem overly bitter at all. Incredible balance between the two. Very high class.

A Mes rate: Bottle at weekend of tarts afterparty.
I was really looking forward to this one as soon as John pulled it out of his bag and had it sat there next to us teasing me. It did not disappoint at all. In fact it was the highlight of the show. Awesomely black and viscous with a thick and lasting tan head and plenty of lace. Thick, tarry malt aroma with plenty of sweet chocolate, maybe not quite as complex as I was expecting but it is certainly an excellent smell. Flavour is OMFG! Utterly amazing. Huge coffee and chocolate of the type that Amager do so very bloody well. Notes of vanilla and a little bit of fruit. Excellent sour notes. Wonderfully dry. Very English in its roasty and rubbery malt character. Stunning bitterness in the finish. An outstanding beer. Thanks so much to John for this.
