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

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.

[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.

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.

BelgiskOlklub (943) - Viby J, DENMARK - APR 30, 2008
Bottle 50 cl. Huge creamy light brown lasting head with good lacing. Cloudy black body. Heavy aroma of toasted and roasted malt, coffee, smoke and tar. Heavy in alcohol. It has a full body, a thick texture and soft carbonation. The finish is long and massive bitter. The flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitter - too bitter in my opinion.

500. Thanks, TheWolf! (Maria, my dear, your bottle is on deck, and I am glad I have two). Black. Dense, opaque. Thick, creamy, long-lasting dark tan head. Huge roasty nose. Tons of burnt charcoal. Medium, creamy, somehow both sticky and pleasantly chalky body. Big charcoal and roast and dark toast mid-palate. Doesn’t get excessively ashy or chalky at all. Gorgeous.
