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.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, - MAY 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a tiny beige head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Cappuccino and boiled sweet aromas mix with a strong cured ham aroma, with some faint leafy hops wafting through. Herbal hops up front lead into a sweet, syrupy body, with mint humbug and honey flavours coming through. A touch of black coffee leads into jamon iberico ham in the finish, with a slight smoky aftertaste. There are some quite unusual flavours in this beer, making for an imperial stout that is a little out of the ordinary, but still quite enjoyable.

SimonTja (221) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2014
Smell of licorice, milk chocolate, crystal malt, quite sweet. Taste is very much like a barley wine loaded with chocolate malt. Sweet but not everlasting, very peaky, decent hop bite, not very roasty, but milk chocolate, nice and drinkable.

500 ml bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing chalice, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head. The head retention is pretty good, and there’s also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, dark fruit, and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some molasses, vanilla, and a bit of licorice flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s smooth, creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good imperial stout. Definitely worth picking up if you come across some. $9.99 a bottle.

tricksta_p (886) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some liquorice. Flavour is roasty, chocolate, definitely sweet but not excessively so. Body is thick and mouthfeel a bit sticky. This beer doesn’t stand out in any extreme way, but it’s just so incredibly well-balanced and drinkable that I love the hell out of it.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee, licorice and alcohol aroma. Moderate to heavy dark sweet toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a moderate to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of medium to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

500 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, a subtle nutty character, smooth mouth feel, some alcohol if consumed quickly, some earthy bitterness to the finish.

500ml bottle. Thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Very dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Dots of lace. Some bigger yeast chunks visible in the body. Roast malt, some light coffee. Hint of dark fruit, and some earthy hop. Get a little bit of the licorice Tom is talking about. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, moderate bitter, little alcohol heat. Bigger body. Kind of slick. Good chewy texture. Very light carbonation. Solid, big euro imperial stout.
