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.

Poured from a 500ml bottle. This beer poured black with an extremely dense brown head. I can smell the rich maltiness from the extended boil, there is a soft smokiness. The flavor is rich, tons of roast character, ashy, raisin, bitter chocolate. Solid stout.

Aromat: niezbyt charakterystyczny dla RIS-a, bowiem dominują w nim akcenty alkoholowe z przewagą wina i owocowe (maliny, jeżyny, wiśnie, aronia, śliwki). Dopiero w tle nuty czekoladowe. Całość sprawia wrażenie odrobinę dzikiego. Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana jasno beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i podobnie trwała. Smak i odczucie w w ustach: potężna słodycz, złamana kwaskowością słodowo- owocową. W tle czekolada, kakao, lekka kawa, paloność oraz nuta metaliczna. Na szczęście nie potwierdzona w teście skórnym. Umiarkowana goryczka słodowo- chmielowa, potęgowana palonością. Mimo tego daje się odczuć raczej jako delikatna i krótka, bowiem jest kontrowana słodyczą. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie, oleista konsystencja, słodko- wytrawny i wyraźnie owocowy finisz z nuta alkoholową, rozgrzewającą przełyk. Dopiero po chwili odczuwalne stają się ponownie czekolada i paloność. Totalne zaskoczenie, bowiem spodziewałem się klasycznego RIS-a. Ten jest wielowarstwowy i złożony z nuta kwaskową oraz owocową. Podobne piwo piłem na BGM z Mikkellera, ale wówczas było ono dzikie z założenia. Co do tego mam pewne wątpliwości ;)

500 ml. Body is jet with a disc of velvety frosting on top. Aroma of dark chocolate, bread dough, tobacco and a touch of booze. Flavors of dark chocolate, licorice, mint, citrus and espresso. Heavy body is silky smooth with a medium carbonation and extremely well balanced. This is another excellent execution of a brew by Amager, but I’m finding I don’t particularly care for Zeus hops.

black oily colour with brown head. Taste and smell of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Overall good example of imperial stout, but not the most representative.

Gearz (47) - Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Very dark pour with somewhat of a tan head. Smells of chocolate and booze. Very boozy on the tongue, an abrasive mouthfeel with toasty notes. Warms the belly! This is a great representation of an Imperial Stout. Ballsy!

Aroma is sweet, malty, roasty with a bit of alcohol. Black, with nice frothy head, leaving nice lacing. Sweet with delicate spicy notes. Full bodied, oily, sticky even. Bitter in after taste. Low-medium carbonation. Nice one.

My most expensive beer till date. Was it worth it? Yes and no. It is a very good beer, pitch black, small tan head. Strong aromas of mostly dark chocolate. Nice dry bitter tasted, again chocolates, a hint of dark fruits, long bitter finish. But ... I had the same experience with beers which were a quarter of the price.
