COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dansk: Vi tænkte længe og grundigt over, hvilken øl der ville gøre os mest muligt stolte at brygge i serien af syndige øl. Hvis du kender Amager Bryghus, ved du, at Imperial Stouts har en helt særlig rolle i vore hjerter. Derfor måtte ”Pride” simpelthen bare være en Imperial Stout. Det der er særligt med denne version er, at vi kogte den som ind i h...... Faktisk kogte vi den i hele 6 timer, hvilket betyder en endnu kraftigere og fyldigere øl. Vi vil aldrig vove at kalde det for en perfekt Imperial Stout – det ville være at bringe stolthed i foruroligende nærhed af hovmod. Men ikke desto mindre håber vi, at I må nyde denne stolte øl. Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: We thought about this for a long time: what kinda beer would give us the utmost feeling of pride in The Sinner Series? Well, if you know Amager Bryghus you already know that Imperial Stouts have a special place in our hearts. So “Pride” simply had to be an Imperial Stout. What is special about this take on the style is that we boiled the h… out of it. Actually we boiled it for 6 hours, making for a richer and fuller version. We would never dare calling this the perfect Imperial Stout - that would be taking pride way too close to hubris! But we hope you enjoy it nonetheless. We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Brewed from Pale Ale, Wheat, Crystal, Black, Chocolate malts and roasted barley, hopped with Zeus and fermented with an American yeast strain.

ComradeK (977) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a tiny beige head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Cappuccino and boiled sweet aromas mix with a strong cured ham aroma, with some faint leafy hops wafting through. Herbal hops up front lead into a sweet, syrupy body, with mint humbug and honey flavours coming through. A touch of black coffee leads into jamon iberico ham in the finish, with a slight smoky aftertaste. There are some quite unusual flavours in this beer, making for an imperial stout that is a little out of the ordinary, but still quite enjoyable.

Torrefacto (494) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 4, 2013
Color negro opaco con espuma beige oscura escasa. aromas dulces y torrefactos, ademásde alcohol. En entra con un ligero dulzor que va pasando a un amargor alohólico, si bien éste no es molesto. Su densiddad media/alta facilita el trago. En general una buena imperial stout.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - APR 30, 2013
50cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Pours pitch black with medium brown creamy head, very good looking. Aroma is soft cocoa blended with licorice and hints of dark fruits, not as intense as expected though. Lots of roasted malts along with coffee regarding taste. Hops as well in the back, warm notes. Sweetness and alcohol are both absent. Full bodied, good carbonation. Nice drink, but not between my favorite beers.
