Danish: P Amager Bryghus er vi kendt for at gre tingene grundigt nr vi endelig gr dem. Sledes ogs med vores fadlagrede l. Vores signaturl Hr. Frederiksen gav vi sledes en seris omgang tr, faktisk hele 26 mneder p et whiskeyfad fra det lille og eksklusive Colorado-destilleri Stranahan. Der gr ondsindede rygter om, at vi havde glemt alt om dette fad, hvilket naturligvis ikke er sandt. Amager Bryghus har et fuldkomment og prcist overblik over sit fadlagringsprogram. Til Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012 har vi fremstillet denne helt srlige udgave, som vi har lagret yderligere 3 mneder med hele vanillestnger. Det har givet den rustikke l en diskret sdme og en bld krydret kant. Men selv med disse formildende omstndigheder m vi advare om, at dette bestemt ikke er nogen hanrej af en l.

English: Amager Hr. Frederiksen (Colorado Whiskey Vanilla Edition) A barrel aged Imperial Stout with whole vanilla festival special, only available at CBC 2012, 11% We barrel aged our signature beer, Hr. Frederiksen, for nothing less than 26 months on a barrel that formerly held Colorado whiskey from Stranahans. Then for CBC we wanted our fans to have an extra special treat, so we aged the beer for another 3 months, this time with whole vanilla. It both mellowed out the edges and added a discreet and subtle spicy edge. But dont worry, this for sure still aint no cuckold of a beer. Hr. Frederiksen still kicks some serious ass.

Palme (4537) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. This is a pretty damn black one with a quickly fading off white head. It completely vanishes actually. Lots and lots of vanilla on the aroma! Heavy woody also, with coffee and sweet chocolate blended with smoky whisky. Really nice! Its average carbonated and has a thick oily texture. Heavy vanilla flavors! Lots of chocolate, some dark black espresso and its light stingy as well. Really heavy on the vanilla! Just gotta love it! 12.05.2012

Scopey (14014) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours very dark brown, with a thin, light tan head. The nose is toffee, vanilla, toasted coconut, coffee, bourbon and amaretto. The taste is vanilla, toffee, charcoal, whiskey, meat, coffee, alcohol warmth, hay, floral, amaretto, almond, touch of spice and toasted coconut. Full body and fine carbonation. Good balance and surprisingly smooth.

jackl (7568) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Deep black color with a creamy tan head. Attractive. The nose is STRONG whiskey and vanilla. The aroma is nose-stinging in heat, quite sugary. Light chocolate, roasted malt. The taste is deep hot chocolate, spicy wood. Loads off vanilla. Muddled roasted malts and chocolate-dipped fruits. Full-bodied, slick and heavy. Overall, its good, but I find this a heavy touch of a stout. The more nuanced flavors of this beer have no chance to show themselves alongside the dominating boozy vanilla.
