COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: P Amager Bryghus har vi aldrig lagt skjul p, at vi nyder at kombinere det bedste fra flere verdner eller regioner. Med denne rdvinsudgave af Hr. Frederiksen kombinerer vi to af landets fremmeste regioner, nr det glder fremstilling af dle drikkevarer. I al kldelig ubeskedenhed vil vi tage en smule kredit for, at netop Amager har udviklet sig til landets mske frende lregion, hvor vort lille bryghus, som producerer lskende fryd p flaske, er placeret strategisk midt mellem gyldne, blgende bygmarker kun brudt af idylliske sm humlelunde.
Akkurat p samme vis har vor kre naboregion Hvidovre for lngst udviklet sig til Danmarks fremmeste vinregion, ikke mindst manifesteret ved den umiskendelige terroir man finder omkring Avedre Landsby med sine mange pittoreske, sydvendte skrninger fyldt af solhungrende vinstokke. Fra vore gode venner hos Dansk Vincenter har vi sledes lnt et trfad, der har rummet vingrdens fremmeste produkt Nordlund-vinen. Vi har ladet Hr. Frederiksen hvile sig hele 12 mdr. p et Nordlund-fad og suge Avedre kraft og saft til sig. Det er det bedste af to verdner i t, som vi hermed med glde lader dig opleve. Nyd dem!

Smagenoter: Sort som en januarnat i Kongelunden, sdan ser denne rdvinsudgave af Hr. Frederiksen ud. Men akkurat som byens lys toner selv den mrkeste nattehimmel gr, sdan tones ogs skummet p denne mrke l i en cremet lysebrun nuance, der stter tydelige aftryk i glasset. Selv om nsen stadig rummer Hr. Frederiksens lidt kontante karakter af hrdt ristede malttoner, s afslrer den ogs med det samme en let frugtagtig sdme, hvor rdvinsfadet kom forbi. I smagen kommer rdvinens let syrlige karakter endnu mere til udtryk. Sdme og maltbitterhed tilfjes nu en nuance af syrlighed, der lgger endnu et lag p en i forvejen kompleks l. I Danish Red Wine udgaven, er Hr. Frederiksen en ekstremt kompleks l, der vil efterlade nye smagsindtryk for hver en mundfuld, du smager.

yngwie (16989) - 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 theres lot of sweetness going on. Some woody hints. Lots of berries too. Warming, roasted finish Well, its 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 Im 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.

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.
