COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Det er næppe nogen hemmelighed, at vi her på Amager Bryghus har en helt særlig forkærlighed for Imperial Stouts - den ædleste og mest noble af alle øltyper. Faktisk er vi her i bryghuset hele tiden i gang med at udvikle nye varianter af denne ædle drik. Som altid skruer vi godt op for det hele, og sådan er det naturligvis osse i denne øl: hele 8 maltvarianter skulle der til og tre humletyper, hvor vi er særligt stolte over at præsentere kongen over dem alle – han hedder Zeus. Amager Imperial Stout er en øl så sort som selveste arvesynden, dækket af det tætteste og mest cremede lysebrune skum. Kaffe- og chokoladetonerne er meget tydelige, men de kommer udelukkende fra malten, mens duften er fuld af vanille. Amager Imperial Stout er en i alle henseender voldsom øl for den krævende og erfarne øldrikker, der ikke er bange for at udfordre alle sanser.


English: It is hardly a secret that we at the Amager Brewery have a deep rooted love for Imperial Stouts - the noblest of all beers. In fact, we are constantly in the process of developing new variations of this fine beverage, this variation has eight malts and three hops. We are particularly proud to present what we feel is the king of hops: Zeus.
Amager Imperial Stout is a beer as black as mortal sin , crowned with the densest and most creamy light brown head. The coffee and chocolate accents are very distinct, but they come exclusively from the malt, while the aroma is rich with vanilla.
Amager Imperial Stout is in all respects a fierce beer for the more demanding and experienced beer drinkers who are not afraid to challenge their senses.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, wheat malt, oats, brown sugar, hops and yeast

Bottle I got from my girlfriend for Christmas. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with nice tan head. Aroma is wood, hops, roasty, nuts, licorice. Flavor is roasty, hoppy, malty, spicy, a bit alcoholic and with a hint of fresh milk. Very nice slightly bitter aftertaste.

From a botttle at World of Beer Sept 20, 2014. Listed at 10.5%. Pours near black with small head and lace. Aroma of dark roasted malt and malt balls. Moderate carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasted malts, burnt malts, bitter roots. Overall rich, complex, tasty but a bit rough.

Crockett (1028) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours very very dark brown/black with ruby fringes. Short tan frothy head. Aroma of coffee, and bitter chocolate is evident, as my daughter just dumped this all over my desk. Sticky. Somewhat simplistic, yet stylish coffee, chocolate, salted toffee nose. Translates fluidly to the palate. Notes of funk, and cheese ride along. Plenty of carbonation in this 2 year old selection. Pepper in the finish. It’s well crafted, but safe.

coachd (254) - Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle aged three years purchased from Royal Wine & Spirits. Aroma is an interesting red wine mixed with oak, leather and vanilla. Not what you would expect from an IS but interesting nonetheless. Pours a very dark brown color with a creamy tan head. Tastes woodsy with a good amount of roast. The coffee flavors coming through are creamy cappuccino, not dark coffee like many stouts. Decent alcohol burn to let you know it’s 10% ABV. Loses a point for having such a funky aftertaste - it’s an iron/stainless steel flavor that does the beer no justice. One thing I cannot disparage is the palate, which is absolutely spot on. Unique take on an Imperial Stout, overall enjoyable but I prefer the traditional style.

douglas88 (6808) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle from Beaumont. Pours a jet black color with a small brown head. Very viscous slick body. The aroma is big roast and coffee, charred wood, vanilla. This is one hell of a beer: massive smoke, char, dark fruit, toffee, vanilla, sweetness of course but the base here is a massive roast, metal, some heavy smoked dark fruit. Chewy at times. The tobacco in this is massive, leather. This tastes like a piece of meat left in a smoldering fire covered with coal and ash. Ummm. Yeah, that’s what I like!

Dark pour with a thin tan head. Chocolate, coffee and vanilla aroma. Flavor starts with a chocolate sweetness and ends with a roasted bitter coffee taste. It was good but lacked a little depth.

PotjeBier (1781) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Backlog. 50 cl bottle @ home. Black color. Big, dense light brown head, leaving a nice blanket. Aroma’s: sweet malts, molasses, mocha/coffee, hard roasted malts. Flavor is moderate sweet, coffee/mocha, heavy roast. Quite strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Long finish, bitter, with coffee and bitter chocolate. Lovely impy.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours dark brown with a rich tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a full-bodied chocolate and vanilla flavor with a lingering coffee finish. Complex and tasty.
