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. Dark brown color with great head. Fantastic aroma of licorice and chocolate, and the same in the flavor. But The aftertaste is VERY bitter like a cold bad coffee, IMO.

Bottle aged three years purchased from Royal Wine & Spirits. Aroma is an interesting red wine mixed with oak, leather and vanilla. Not what you would expect from an IS but interesting nonetheless. Pours a very dark brown color with a creamy tan head. Tastes woodsy with a good amount of roast. The coffee flavors coming through are creamy cappuccino, not dark coffee like many stouts. Decent alcohol burn to let you know it’s 10% ABV. Loses a point for having such a funky aftertaste - it’s an iron/stainless steel flavor that does the beer no justice. One thing I cannot disparage is the palate, which is absolutely spot on. Unique take on an Imperial Stout, overall enjoyable but I prefer the traditional style.

douglas88 (6588) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle from Beaumont. Pours a jet black color with a small brown head. Very viscous slick body. The aroma is big roast and coffee, charred wood, vanilla. This is one hell of a beer: massive smoke, char, dark fruit, toffee, vanilla, sweetness of course but the base here is a massive roast, metal, some heavy smoked dark fruit. Chewy at times. The tobacco in this is massive, leather. This tastes like a piece of meat left in a smoldering fire covered with coal and ash. Ummm. Yeah, that’s what I like!

4theluvofbeer (109) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Dark pour with a thin tan head. Chocolate, coffee and vanilla aroma. Flavor starts with a chocolate sweetness and ends with a roasted bitter coffee taste. It was good but lacked a little depth.

PotjeBier (1779) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Backlog. 50 cl bottle @ home. Black color. Big, dense light brown head, leaving a nice blanket. Aroma’s: sweet malts, molasses, mocha/coffee, hard roasted malts. Flavor is moderate sweet, coffee/mocha, heavy roast. Quite strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Long finish, bitter, with coffee and bitter chocolate. Lovely impy.

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.

Iphonephan (3858) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2014
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 (11518) - 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 (753) - 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
