COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: På Amager Bryghus har vi aldrig lagt skjul på, at vi nyder at kombinere det bedste fra flere verdner eller regioner. Med denne rødvinsudgave af Hr. Frederiksen kombinerer vi to af landets fremmeste regioner, når det gælder fremstilling af ædle drikkevarer. I al klædelig ubeskedenhed vil vi tage en smule kredit for, at netop Amager har udviklet sig til landets måske førende ølregion, hvor vort lille bryghus, som producerer læskende fryd på flaske, er placeret strategisk midt mellem gyldne, bølgende bygmarker kun brudt af idylliske små humlelunde.
Akkurat på samme vis har vor kære naboregion Hvidovre for længst udviklet sig til Danmarks fremmeste vinregion, ikke mindst manifesteret ved den umiskendelige terroir man finder omkring Avedøre Landsby med sine mange pittoreske, sydvendte skråninger fyldt af solhungrende vinstokke. Fra vore gode venner hos Dansk Vincenter har vi således lånt et træfad, der har rummet vingårdens fremmeste produkt Nordlund-vinen. Vi har ladet Hr. Frederiksen hvile sig hele 12 mdr. på et Nordlund-fad og suge Avedøre kraft og saft til sig. Det er det bedste af to verdner i ét, som vi hermed med glæde lader dig opleve. Nyd dem!

Smagenoter: Sort som en januarnat i Kongelunden, sådan ser denne rødvinsudgave af Hr. Frederiksen ud. Men akkurat som byens lys toner selv den mørkeste nattehimmel grå, sådan tones også skummet på denne mørke øl i en cremet lysebrun nuance, der sætter tydelige aftryk i glasset. Selv om næsen stadig rummer Hr. Frederiksens lidt kontante karakter af hårdt ristede malttoner, så afslører den også med det samme en let frugtagtig sødme, hvor rødvinsfadet kom forbi. I smagen kommer rødvinens let syrlige karakter endnu mere til udtryk. Sødme og maltbitterhed tilføjes nu en nuance af syrlighed, der lægger endnu et lag på en i forvejen kompleks øl. I Danish Red Wine udgaven, er Hr. Frederiksen en ekstremt kompleks øl, der vil efterlade nye smagsindtryk for hver en mundfuld, du smager.

yngwie (17173) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle, 375ml corked. More or less black, with a small, dense, light tan head. Very vinous aroma, borderline booze-ish. Coffee, roasted malts and molassess too. Full-bodied, warming and smooth on the palate. Very dry-ish, yet there’s lot of sweetness going on. Some woody hints. Lots of berries too. Warming, roasted finish Well, it’s certainly a nice beer, but I think the impact from the wine barrel is too big. 130516

(Batch 267 BB 2022)
Effectively a 2012 vintage. Very IS in appearance with a dark brown hue and orange thin head. Chocolate and oatmeal on the nose; good complexity. Palate is thick and yes wine-like with a port thickness that is exaggerated but very low fizz levels. Dark fruits early but this lightens somewhat to finish with a much lighter tangy note. Note for the faint hearted and I’m sure could be cellared for at least a couple of years.

Opaque black beer, tidy tan head. Light dry palate. Mild dark malts. Bretty paint from the barrel. A little unsweet dark chocolate. Dark malt. Nice red wine before the dry finish but there is a little too much barrel weirdness here for this to be great.

4.2
kjorup (24) - DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
375 ml corked bottle. Black, near opaque with a creamy thick espresso head. Fair lacing and some ABV streams. Nose is rich on red wine, licorice, coffee, soy, roasted malt, oak, dark fruit and a little smoke. Medium bodied, hardly any carbonation, finishes sharp, dry and bitter with a warming ABV sensation. Flavor is fruity vinous, tar, soy, licorice, dark chocolate, espresso, roasted malt, wood, raisins, plums. Almost too complex as all the nuances hits you up front and are hard to distinguish - then fades out. Although an explosion of flavors dominated by the red wine barrel it is well rounded, soft and appealing. Very nice.
