COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Når Chicagos bedste lille ølbutik spørger, om vi ikke kan lave dem en jubilæumsøl, så er det en ære, som man simpelthen ikke kan afslå. West Lakeview Liquors har været ejet og drevet af Bozic-familien i 25 år, og en sådan bedrift kræver naturligvis noget helt særligt til fejringen. Vores måske mest kendte øl - Hr. Frederiksen - har altid været populær i butikken. Og med den øl som udgangspunkt gav vi frie hænder til brygmester John Laffler fra Off Color Brewing - en gammel ven af både Amager Bryghus og West Lakeview Liquors - så han kunne sætte sit helt eget persomlige aftryk på opskriften. Resultatet er dette samarbejdsbryg: "Gnädige Frau - Marshmallow Stout" - som kombinerer en herresort og voldsom dansk Imperial Stout med den amerikanske lejrbåls-snack en "s’more". Navnet er en hyldest til Kristina Bozic, den nuværende ejer af West Lakeview Liquors som personligt og med stor entusiasme deltog i brygningen her på bryghuset. Kristina sprættede vanillestænger op, skar skumfiduser i skiver og knuste grahamskiks med en kødhammer! En sød og særlig kvinde kræver en helt særlig øl. Og det mener vi, at "Gnädige Frau" lige præcis er. Nyd den!

English: When the best little liquor store in Chicago asks you to make them a celebration beer, it’s an honor you simply cannot refuse. West Lakeview Liquors has been owned and run by the Bozic family for 25 years, and that indeed calls for something unique and different. Our signature Imperial Stout, Hr. Frederiksen, has always been a popular beer in the store. And with that beer as a base, master brewer John Laffler from Off Color Brewing - and longtime friend of both Amager Bryghus and West Lakeview Liquors - was given free hands to add his very personal touch. The result is this collaboration: “Gnädige Frau - Marshmallow Stout” - combining a trademark Danish beer with the very American campfire treat a s’more. The name of the beer is a tribute to Kristina Bozic, the current owner of West Lakeview Liquors who personally and enthusiastically took part in the brewing here at Amager Bryghus, slicing vanilla beans and marshmallows and crushing graham crackers with a meat hammer! A sweet and unique lady requires a very special beer. We believe “Gnädige Frau” to be exactly that. Enjoy!

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear-looking dark brown body under a dense, light tan head of moderate size. The aroma has some treacle, with dark chocolate, some raisins and a touch of licorice. Some vanilla and booze, with a touch of grilled marshmallows. Salty licorice, marshmallows, vanilla, dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. Herbal, vegetal bitterness all the way. Full body, rather warming and with a little alcohol warmth. Nice for sure, but a bit sweetish I think. Would like to have a glass with some grilled marshmallows. 140815

Pours slightly transparent black with a nice, big, tan head. Aroma has huge milk chocolate, vanilla, cocoa powder, molasses, gun powder. Taste has port wine, darker chocolate, licorice and vanilla. Lots of sweetness. Very nice! Full body with low carb, but a nice heat in the end.

wvhoran (154) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle with James and Dad. Pitch black with a decent tan head. Huge sugary aroma, molasses, toffee, roast malt. Flavour is deeply sweet, chocolate, some roast malt, vanilla. It leaves a rather sugary impression with only a little bitterness. It’s kind of smoky and increasingly toward the caramel side of the sweet spectrum--I love it.

kerenmk (2260) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Very black with brownish-golden head. Sweet, some raspberry, some chocolate and then phenol in the nose. Sweetish taste, then bitter, then a little petroleum-like in the mouth. Smooth, full-bodied, long, a little sweet, like chocolate cake with raspberry sauce finish.
