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.

Thick head stays with you for a while. Roasty, chocolaty aroma. First sip stops your lungs for a moment, it’s so full of flavours. Chocolate, coffee, dark malts on top. Alcohol on the edge of "too much" goes well with its full body. Oily on the tongue. Low carbonation. Bitter and dry aftertaste. This is one great Imperial Stout.

Black with tan froth. Aroma is roasted, slightly earthy with ecident alcohol. Bittersweet flavour, lots of fruity licorice well balanced by warming alcohol. Nice.

Oh this stuff is so freakin good. Appropriate to Imperial Stout, Royally Tasty. Appearance has a thick long lasting light brown head. Aroma is black malt, black olives, licorice, leather. Flavor’s like nose, plus some sweet and bitter, those in perfectly balanced amounts. Body is so amazingly smooth. Only slight veiled hints of power. Wahoo!

Pours pitch black with a finger tan head. Typical imperial stout appearance. Quite a floral nose, more hops than I was expecting from this style. The mixture of hops and malts gives off an interesting bitter dark chocolate nose. First thing I notice is that the taste is bittersweet, the bitterness dominates the sweetness. A lot of wheat comes through to back up this bitterness. Not too sure if I if I like it or not, but its well executed. Tastes of a dark, strong espresso, chocolate and a sharp twang from the wheat. Finish is dry and very bitter. Soft carbonation. Overall, this is an interesting imperial stout, i like how the wheat and hops play together in the taste. But I dont know if i’d reach for another one again if we crossed paths, too much bitterness for my liking in this style. But a hop lovers dream in stout form.

jawlo (374) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Aromat: praliny czekoladowe, paloność, delikatna kawa. Wygląd: barwa czarna, piana potężna, ale opada za szybko, za to pięknie zdobi szkło. Smak: sporo słodyczy w postaci czekoladowego likieru, w tle kawa, spora palona, goryczka. Tekstura: pełne, delikatnie likierowe, wycenie niskie. Ogólne wrażenie: pyszne piwo, bardzo aromatyczne, świetna tekstura w postaci likierowego charakteru i idealny balans między sporą słodyczą i dużą goryczką.
