Dansk: Vi tćnkte lćnge og grundigt over, hvilken řl der ville gřre os mest muligt stolte at brygge i serien af syndige řl. Hvis du kender Amager Bryghus, ved du, at Imperial Stouts har en helt sćrlig rolle i vore hjerter. Derfor mĺtte ”Pride” simpelthen bare vćre en Imperial Stout. Det der er sćrligt 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 řl. Vi vil aldrig vove at kalde det for en perfekt Imperial Stout – det ville vćre at bringe stolthed i foruroligende nćrhed af hovmod. Men ikke desto mindre hĺber vi, at I mĺ nyde denne stolte řl. Vi er ikke stolte over at vćre syndere, men i det mindste er vi ĺbne 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.

Black with a large light brown head. Aroma had dark chocolate, coffee and English liquorice. Flavor was sort of sweet with plenty of burned malt, espresso coffee, liquorice and dark bitter chocolate. Towards the end hops kicked in and gave it a rather dry and bitter finish. Not overly so, just enough to balance the sweetness for the style. Oily and thick. Lovely!

adster (341) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Éjfekete, teljesen átlátszatlan színe mögött egy sűrű, tartalmas illatokat árasztó ital húzódik, amiben a különféle aszalványokkal tarkított étcsokoládé és kakaó némi faháncs ódon aromáival vegyül. Vastag, telt ízei élményszámba mennek, a kirobbanó gazdagságot a maláta mázsás súlyának és desszertszerű jellemvonásainak változatos karaktere adja, amit szigorúan csillapít a szivarfüstös, tábortüzes komolyság, valamint a komló harapós, hosszú életű keserűsége.

Bue en bouteille de 50cl, couleur noire, peu de mousse pas d’effevescence, une bičre trčs grillée en bouche assez extrčme sur le café et le chocolat, pointe d’amertume et de réglisse en fin de bouche agréable.

mgajdaczewa (500) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 1, 2014
W aromacie kakao, kawa, trochę czerwonych owoców, lekka wędzonka, mogłoby być intensywniej. W smaku jak likier kawowy, wyczuwalny alkohol, kakao, lekki wiśniowy posmak, co dziwne sporo chmielu objawiającego się w lekko trawiastej goryczce i wnoszącej sporo rześkości do tego antyrześkiego stylu. Finisz długi, kawowo - chmielowy, lekko rozgrzewa w żołądku. Jest smacznie.

TET (1645) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2014
A black beer with a medium and light brown head. The nose is roasted, coffee, some sweetness and liquirice. Taste is strongly roasted with coffee, nice sweetness, bready malts, the hops stays in the background, still herbal end. Full bodied, low carbonation. Disappointment, too bready malty and not a character of Imperial Stout.

500 ml. bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, and caramel. Very good.

maneliquor (3110) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor shared at Five Bar with the crew. Pours very dark brown with a thick and sticky khaki head. Nose is very sultana forward with an underlying booziness. As it warms, plum comes out and it is very milk chocolate forward. Taste is like a chocolate covered sultana with plenty of rum n raisin notes. A very dark fruit forward IS which is surprisingly smooth for the abv. Very drinkable and smooth. The booze is much more in your face on the nose as opposed to the taste. Solid stuff

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2014
500 ml bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a thicker black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is ashy, roasty, fruity, and has hints of tobacco. The taste is mostly bitter throughout, but it gives way to a bit of sweetness about mid way through. Finishes dry and bitter. Thick mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Very good beer, though not world class as expected. Starts off just a little hot and rough around the edges, but opens/warms up nicely. Lots of roast, with some anise, dark fruit, and a healthy dose of hops

Iphonephan (3254) - McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
From a 50 ml bottle shared at home. Pours a clear dark cola with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and dark fruits. Flavors of caramel, licorice and plums. Lingering roasty finish.

OmegaX (1255) - Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Hmmm....this was a nice find at the Lakeland, Florida, Brass Tap. Nose is light roast, anise, sweet malts, port wine, chocolate. Flavor is similar with a big sweet malt presence. Dark fruits, port wine, chocolate. Very rich. My only complaint is that it was almost too sweet after about half a glass. Good stuff, though.
