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.

IPAgutten79 (356) - Skui, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2014
Fullstendig svart med lavt/medium høyt brunlig skum. Aromaen er søtlig, med ristet malt og sjokolade. Ligger noe kaffe langt bak der også. Smaken er mild sjokolade, mild lakris og ristet malt. For en gangs skyld er smaken bedre enn aromaen. Bitterheten i munnen er mild, men behagelig. Medium konsistens, mildt bitter i ettersmaken. Ikke spektakulær og nyskapende, men trygg og veldig god.

Douberd (1694) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a snifter glass. ABV 10% Totally black colour on the body with one finger of thick head on it, dark brown in colour, with good retention and medium lacing left on the glass, along with big foam and bubbly islands on the surface. Aroma of milky chocolate, light roasted malts, olive pit, alcohol of the nice enhancing aromas quality and not the boozy one, Taste of roasted malts, sweet with plenty of chocolate and malts, some vanilla on the finish and some alcohol notable here too but very well hidden for the most part. Full body with carbonation on the right levels. Sticky but also hoppy dryness on the palate. Overall another tasty beer on the Sinner Series, very well done.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle @tasting. Pours black. Not a big nose some dark chocolate but that was it. Blackberry and blueberry notes to the taste with chocolate and hints of coffee also some liquorice. The only disappointment to this was a lack of a great smell.

Bottle from Berkeley Bowl. Pours near black with an attractive light brown head and a treacle aroma. There is a full-bodied complex dark malt flavor that includes chocolate, dark molasses and coffee. The roasty character sticks to the palate, leaving a pleasant sensation.
