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.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2013
Bottle@Home. Laurel, chocolate, very malty aroma, strong flavours. Black, brown firm head, very nice lace. Sweet, very malty, nice bitterness, chocolate, coffee, light salty, laurel, complex. Full, alcoholic, bit astringent. Wow!

SaintMatty (5537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2013
500ml Bottle - Black in colour. Coffee, liquorice and a hint of coffee in the aroma. Chocolatey and mildly roasted taste with notes of liquorice, roasted coffee and chocolate. Rich, yet easy to drink. It certainly doesn’t taste like it’s 10%.

kjorup (24) - DENMARK - APR 26, 2013
50 cl bottle (batch #512). Pours almost black with a thick dark head. Aroma is fruity with coffee, vanilla and roasted malts. Nice creamy body, with moderate carbonation. Long bitter aftertaste. Flavor is also fruity. Dark fruits. Sweet with vanilla, burned coffee, a little hops, some smoke and a hint of peat. Big on taste. Well rounded.

Lilja (1783) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2013
Smak och doft av rostad malt, choklad, kaffe, läder, söt frukt, svartvinbärsvingummi. Rund, len, med stor marmeladsötma och toner av rök. Lätt beska. Aningen för söt.

gyllenbock (5031) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2013
Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, April 2013. Black with a tan head. A lot of roasted malt in this one. Also some coffee, dark chocolate and light smoke. On the sweet side with a long finish. A descent one to sip.

Vignale (2208) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2013
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Riktigt mörk med högt beige skum. Hårdrostade närmast brända dofter med inslag av starkt kaffe. Överraskande söt smak, närmast godisaktig sötma, tänk svart vingummi, fruktig, chokladkola, söt mörkt bröd, mörkt socker, mjölksocker och aningen rök. Liten beska gör den len och relativt lättdrucken. Men för söt.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Alcohol heat slaps coffee, vanilla and licorice around, as wealthy oats and dark chocolate watch by, entertained.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the brown-ringed darkness.
-Mouthfeel is rich and coating.
-Because of the alcohol heat, but also because of the malt complexity, this is a serious sipper.
-Licorice spiciness is also into star anise territory.

Bottle.

VictorStr (1443) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2013
[@ Öl och whiskymässan, Malmö] Svart med brunt skum, big suprise? Kaffe, mörk chocklad. Kanske en liten hint av vanilj?! Tyckte smaken var avsevärt bättre än aroman.
