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 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.

Christian (11317) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 19, 2008
Opaque black beer with a long lasting, light brown head. Firm lace on the glass. The nose is filled with licorice, chocolate, pine hops in a perfect blend. Dry and bitter flavour, hard roast to burnt notes, a little alcohol bite. Hops and burnt malt fight to dominate the bitter finish and hops win. No coffee, no barrel aging, no funny stories, just a perfectly crafted beer of my favourite kind.

Black of color with a longlasting beige head. An aroma of liqurice, malt, alcohol and hops - weak notes of yeast. A flavor of liqurice, hops, coffee and bitter.

Wanderer (33) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 11, 2008
Very strong aroma of hops and licorice, pours deep black with beige/brown head. Strong hoppy aftertaste. Not my favorite in the world but then again too much hoppes in this one for me!
