9/09/2009: Amager Hr. Frederiksen... Aroma: Bitter dark chocolate, hints of black plum, mineral-like. Appearance: Near black with a decent brown-colored head. Flavor: Rich and robust semi-dark chocolate roasted malts, undertones of coffee and a mild to moderate bitterness, nutty?, some alcohol in the nose; improving as it warms and breathes... Palate: Medium-full; almost smooth, but not quite. Overall: Pretty good, but nothing overly special (sad to say).
50 cl. bottle (Bitterhed: 80+ IBU; Ufiltreret, upasteuriseret; Alc 10,5% vol.) shared by alexdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #326 for this beer.
Bottle at Beer Temple. Very dark body with thin tan head. Sweet and malty nose. Taste of chocolate and coco. Fruits flavours too. Very full-bodied and sturdy. Bitterness in the finish. Fantastic. MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2009
22oz - Aroma of ashy burnt malts, dark chocolate, more dark malts and a touch of orange hops. Flavor is very smooth for a 10.5% brew. Like the expensive dark cocao with orange peel in it. Lots of roasted dark malts. Palate is creamy and incredibly smooth. A unique and super tasty imperial stout. douglas88 (9789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 22oz bottle. Pours a pure black color with a thick beige head- looks great. The aroma is interesting; sweet chocolates, a noticeable sour roasted flavor that fits perfectly. A initial flavor of intense sour roasted flavors that mix with citrus hops to form a awesome flavor, lots of chocolates and cocoa as well. Finished with a long lingering roasted bitterness- like very dark chocolates. Very good. A nice take on the style. Ra-rate: awesome. Ashy and fruity, very smooth.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2009 A wonderful nose of tobacco, sugars and chocolate. Taste is equally amazing, with notes of coffee, liquorish and oak. Finish is spicy, metallic and bitter. This is the way I want my Imperial Stout! Not too salty, bitter or roasted, but smooth, complex and sweet. Maybe I’m rating this too high, but what the heck - I’ve got 4 more bottles in the cellar so we’ll see if the next one is as good as I’ve rated it.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06.
Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, chocolate, woody and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.
A standout brew. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of fine to large sized dark brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a opaque no visible carbonation black colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was malty and dark chocolate. The mouth feel was smooth at the start with a malt hop bite in the finish. The flavor contained notes of toasted malt roasted malt mildly vinous and dark malt. A wonderful best in class brew. robinvboyer (4811) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2009
Great aroma of deark roasted almost burnt malt, coffee, cocoa, and some subtle fresh herbal hops. The flavor is very nice, and smooth, and I would venture to say soft. The hops are prevalent, and very soft, and finish with some more wonderful roastiness. THis drinks extremely well, and the alcohol is nowhere to be found, immensly enjoyable beer, and also dangerous. garmonbozia (450) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Another thanks to Sprinkle for this. Obvious chocolate taste with a dry and bitter aftertaste. Dried fruit was also present maybe plums and raisens and cherries.
