COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Allerede nr den hldes op i glasset, fornemmes det med det samme, at Hr. Frederiksen er en herre med bde potens og stor personlighed. Begsort som Hr. Frederiksens humor er denne Imperial Stout efter amerikansk forbillede med et tt og cremet, lysebrunt skum, som efterlader pikante blonder i glasset, efterhnden som det modstrbende lgger sig. Vi indrmmer det gerne vi er get amok med maltene i denne l, hele 8 forskellige har vi brugt, og det er de sorte og brndte, der giver llet bde dets farve og den nrmest ekstreme fylde dette er nrmest et fudbyrdet mltid p flaske. Ogs bitterhed leverer de brndte malte sekunderet af amerikansk Centennial humle. h jo, Hr. Frederiksen er en oplevelse at byde op til dans, han br dog nydes langsomt, men s kan han til gengld ogs holde en hel aften, hvor man kan varme sig ved hans alkohol og udfordrende charme.
Vi har opkaldt denne l efter en god ven uden hvis fantastiske sttte og assistance Amager Bryghus ikke var, hvor det er i dag.

English: Even when just poured into the glass, you feel straight away that Mr. Frederiksen is a master of potency and great personality. Pitch-black as Mr. Frederiksens humor, this American style Imperial Stout has a dense and creamy, light brown head that leaves an abundance of lacing on the glass as it reluctantly settles.
We are happy to admit that we have gone slightly berserk with malt in this beer, eight different varieties were used including black and roasted malts that give this beer its color and almost extreme density - this is almost a meal in a bottle. The bitterness is also supplied by the roasted malts backed by the American Centennial hops.
Mr. Frederiksen is an experience to be savoured he should be enjoyed slowly throughout the course of an entire evening where you can warm yourselves by his alcohol and provocative charms.
We have named this beer after a good friend without whose wonderful support and assistance Amager Brewery would not be where it is today.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, wheat malt, oats, hops and yeast

Beautiful pour. Pitch black with a big, dark, burnt-mocha head. Lots of chocolate and molasses on the nose, overshadowing the roasty coffee notes. Some vanilla, and a bit of booze. Far more coffee in the flavor, which isnt nearly as thick as Id hoped. Had a bunch of potential, and its very good, but this could have been fantastic. The booze comes through, and it lacks body. Really nice on the nose, but its (gently) downhill from there.

Bottle from City Beer. Nose is rich chocolate coffee beans. COlor i a flat, intimidating jet black. Flavor is hugely full and prickly: more coffee, dark chocolate, sweet roast that is somehow kind of burnt, but not annoyingly so. Light spice, light vanille. Giant, minerally and full, but not dirty Danish - no mud, a smooth finish that is also long. No green grape skin. I want more.

travita (4956) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Dark brown in color with a good tan head. The smell is roasty, chocolate, prunes, coffee, dark fruits. Solid. The taste is roasty, malts, chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits. Good.

Bottle. Amazing beer. Pours black with small tan head. Great roasted coffee notes, smoke, dark chocolate, figs and liquorice. Lovely.

500 ml bottle
This has been in the cellar for a while. I cracked it open not able to wait any longer. Hopefully another batch of this makes it to Ohio so I dont have to trade for it like the first time. This is going on my list of favorites in case I do ever see it again.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep oily black body is the definition of a perfect imperial stout. A thin soft head the color of sand is a nice addition as is the off white lacing that slides downs the sides of the glass. Smoke, chocolate, brownies, rich coffee, and vanilla are only the start. Along with those are fresh cookie dough and cherry licorice. Rich, cohesive, and focused it leaves a mark on the nose.

Flavor / Palate - Smoke or ash is the first impression but is soon followed by anise, oak, and a bit of hops. The chocolately transition yields to a warm finish. This is a dessert beer that goes well with almost anything. Amager has hit a home run with this.

Pours black with a small tan head. Coffee,vanilla, chocolate and some dark fruits. Alcohol dominates a little bit to much. Overall a good stout.

JanVittrup (243) - Kbenhavn V, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2009
Pitch black colour, thick foamy tanned settled head. Coffee, dark chocolate. Not very bitter. Not much alcohol. Lots of burnt nuances and some sharp bitterness at the end. Similar to concentrated black licorice. Medium - thick body. Too burnt for me. Purchased in Kihosk

badgerben (5043) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Pitch black color with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, very dark chocolate, light oak and some vanilla. Extremely chalky mouthfeel and taste. French Roast-level coffee. Powerfully bitter, being a mix of coffee, roasted barley and hops. It struck me as sea-ish. If you think of how you can tell a Scotch was aged by the sea, same thing applies here.

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Bottle. A dark brown and thick body supports a fairly large and dense head of light brown foam. Aromas are lush... a mix of chocolate, anise, plum, molasses... Its hard to pick out individual scents as there is so much going on. It seems like the chocolate takes over as it warms, morphing into an almost Nestle Quik like presence. Flavor is frickin dynamite! In spite of not picking up much of it in the nose, there is a very smokey, earthy body to it and the rest of the flavors swirl around poking through at times and complementing it. Vanilla and cream show up in the finish before yielding back to a bitter charcoal end. This is a much stronger brew than I would have even guessed and Im wishing I had picked up more bottles. Now if we just had wide distribution and more affordable prices...
