ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2010
Very dark brown with a small beige head. Some lacings.
The smell is of chocolate, smooth roasted malts and piny and peppery hops. Hints of coffee as well, and perhaps a faint smoky note.
The taste has some sweetness to it with notes f roasted malts, chocolate and wood. And again, I get a faint note of smoke. Lots of piny hops. The finish is bitter, but a bit bland aroma-wise with notes of coffee, hops and chocolate.
Rather light body, smooth and easy to drink.
Not as in-your-face as Herr Frederiksen and the brewery’s regular imperial stout, but there’s something about the hop profile in Amager’s beers that I don’t really like - it’s too raw, piny and unidimensional. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2009
Black of color with a beige head. An aroma of sweets, liqurice, roasted malt, dark choclate and alcohol. A flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, liqurice and hops. deflagro (106) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a black liquid with a rather large, beige head. Aroma is very roasted. Taste is rather hoppy with heavily roasted notes and a hint of old cucumber. A bit thin body, and a bit one-sided beer. Not bad, though. TEJA (3349) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle from systembolaget. Thich light brown head that lasts. Darb brown color. The aroma containes coffey and dark sweet chocolate. In the taste there is coffey and semi dry finnish that then gives the bitterness that is well balanced for this stout. Nice full body. Nisse666 (8153) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2009

Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a creamy froth of well-lacing dark beige head. Aroma of rich dark caramel, chocolate and roasty coffee with some dark fruity complexity. Starts with good dark malty fullness with some smoky roasted dark chocolate and caramel before a drier, earthy bittersweet finish with lingering dark chocolate. A very nice stout.

Black colour, tan head some lacing. Aroma is extremely roasted and full of chocolate and coffee. Flavour is the same with a nice bitterness to it. Unfortunately the body is a bit thin and it is very flat as well. This is so much the case that it influences the whole experience of the beer. With a better mouthfeel I would have loved it, now I don’t. Borresteijn (7602) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2009
50cl Bottle from De Molen. Pitch black, small beige brown head. Aroma of lovely hard roasted malts, lots of chocolate, light smoke/tar, a hint of liquorice. Flavour is sweet and bitter, hard roasted malts, chocolate, lots of hops, earthy liquorice in the bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied, soft and creamy mouthfeel. Fantastic stout, exactly how I like them. mjs (7778) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2009
(Bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki) Poured black with quite large and light brown head. Aroma was mostly of liquorice and chocolate with some burnt notes. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were roastedness, burtness, ash, hops, bitterness and coffee. Ashy and bitter aftertaste. nimbleprop (8949) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Bottle sampled at the DC Local tasting. Pours an opaque, slightly oily black with a creamy white head. Nice, toasty aroma, coffee, nuts, brown sugar. Flavor is also very nice, brown sugar, molasses, coffee, toast. A little thick in the mouth but drinkable. Very nice.
