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

kjorup (24) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2013
50 cl bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate. The palate is a pleasant creamy medium body with low carbonation and with a long and slightly bitter finish. Flavor matches aroma with some added sweetness and a hint of peat. Very drinkable and ABV is well hidden.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a deep brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is rich and heavy, syrupy with a slight hint of vanilla, as well as some notes of smoke, chocolate and coffee. Surprisingly medium body, syrupy mouthfeel. Finish is a bit unexpected, but good. Smoky and oaky, slight bitterness, long and acerbic. Really a lovely beer.

Bottle I got from my girlfriend for Christmas. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with nice tan head. Aroma is wood, hops, roasty, nuts, licorice. Flavor is roasty, hoppy, malty, spicy, a bit alcoholic and with a hint of fresh milk. Very nice slightly bitter aftertaste.

MacBoost (1773) - Penfield, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Pours a deep black with a nice tan head. Strong anise aromas coming out from this one, along with some figs and coffee. First sip reveals a twisted bitter concoction of burnt sugar, molasses, dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and roast. Slight hop bite. Thick mouthfeel. Dry finish. I really like these European imperial stouts much more than the American versions. These tend to be dry and bitter from the malts, instead of sugary and bitter from the hops. This is a good beer on all accounts.

Huhzubendah (3542) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
On draft at Capone’s in Philadelphia. The beer is black with a dense half inch of beige cap. The aroma brings dark chocolates, roast, coffee. Smells great. Really smooth and full of flavor. Wonderful coffee melds with gourmet chocolates. Sweetness is minimal, and the beer has a gentle, bitter finish. Alcohol content is an afterthought. Overall, this was outstanding.
