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.

GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 29, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Botella de 500ml.(cortesía de Humlelala). Copa Globo. Aroma intenso de chocolate y alcohol subyacente al destapar. Color negro puro con espuma marrón bronceado que se disipa lentamente y deja algunos encajes. El fresco aroma presenta cacao negro y chocolate con leche, redondeado por notas herbales, cítrico maduro y leve fruto oscuro por detrás. La entrada es cremosa con notas torrefactas y de caramelo, de toffees y gentil alcohol. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. La sensación en boca es viscosa y cremosa. En el intermedio, las sutiles notas de regaliz y amargor herbal , con un punto de comino, se encuentran con el sabor de cacao y permanecen en el final dulce/amargo, donde los lúpulos resinosos afloran y dejan una sensación reseca. Calor a través de la garganta, algún trazo afrutado y de caramelo en el retrogusto. Sabrosa y de agradable asimilación. Un equilibrio sorprendente en esta Obra Maestra!! Una gran cerveza todo-terreno que puede maridar, perfectamente, tanto con Fajitas Mejicanas – chili, pollo, cebolla y judías- o con un bizcocho Panetone. O, naturalmente, para saborear en un trago pausado y prolongado. (Lote 512. BF10/2017). 500ml bottle. (Thanks to Humlelala). Snifter glass. Intense chocolate & underneath alcohol aromas as cap is removed. Pure black color. Brownish tan is creamy, slowly dissipated & leaves some lacing. Fresh aroma shows dark bitter cocoa & milk chocolate, rounded by herbal notes & ripe citric on the back. Slight dark fruits are also displayed to the nose. Creamy upfront with roasted & caramel notes as well as toffee & gentle alcohol. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous & creamy mouthfeel. Subtle notes of licorice & herbal bitterness with a point of cumin in the middle are joined by dark cocoa flavor linger into a sweet/bitter finish where resinous hop arises & leaves a dried sensation. Heat through the throat, some fruity & caramel hues on the aftertaste. Flavorful & gentle drinkability. Amazing balance at this masterpiece !! A great all-terrain beer that could be perfectly paired with Mexican fajitas – chili, chicken, onion & beans- or Panetone cake as well. Or simply alone for a long & paused drink, naturally. (Batch 512. BF10/2017).

11-FEB-2013, bottle @home, from the brewery. Black with lasting brown head. Roast aroma with licorice, dark berries, chocolate, and soy sauce. Taste the same. Long sweet and roasted aftertaste. Full body and soft carbonation. Better now than at release @Amager Bryghus - two weeks ago. A little rough still, but surprisingly more smooth already. Will hold on to a couple of bottle a little while:-)

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2013
@Ølfestival København 2013 - black beer with a persistent beige foam; nice lacework; aroma of mocha and black coffee; fairly roasted, notes of plums and dark cherries; thick and strong malt backbone: salty and hugely bitter; notes of whisky, plums and a strong warming alcohol presence in the finish - complex and powerful, I love it !
