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

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2009
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 (5064) - 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 (2800) - 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...

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Hoppy nose, Cenennial they say, citrusy but not sweet at all. Loads of chocolate perfume. Dark cacoa powder, shaved 70% dark chocolate, a touch of coffee and then a raspberry truffle. Very complex. Rich mouthfeel is by no means from the crankcase and oily viscousity is not dominating. Suprisingly finesseful for such a big beer and abv. Almost a year old, it could go for another year or so I say. However, this beer is open, layered and very generous. Raspberry and Blackberry continues to whisper as roasted nuts and lava cake twirl around an espresso with a lemon twist. The texture is just sinful, velvety and somehow refreshing just when the palate needs relief. Seamless construction, with roasted malts and hop bitternes elevated and drying at the same time. Excellent, as good as they come.

2009-06-05, bottle, batch 115, 8-5-9-4-18=44
Black color with huge head. It has a complex aroma with roasted malt, chocolate, ashes, hops that dont fail to show some fruitness; very light but pleasant cheesy trace. Strong body, good mix of chocolate, roasted malt and caramel, and all supported by the minimum required sweeetness, and creamy; strong bitterness; quite strong alcohol presence, warming the mouth beyond the expected 10.5%, but never disturbing. In the final there are delicate waves of coffee and light liquorice. Excellent Imperial Stout, powerful well mixed and complex. Top.

2009-05-15, draught at Kbenhavnske ldage 2009, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Black color; big creamy head. Very nice creamy roasted malt aroma, a bit cheesy too. Good body strength, smooth; strong roasted malt flavor, strong bitterness, but also a light sourness, that I would like not to find. Very good.

doublebock (558) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Very thick dark tan head with hint of red. Deep black color. Bready roast malt aroma. Palate is remarkable. Overpowering crisp and roasted finish. Alcohol is strong but subtle. Flavor of raisins and espresso.

nimbleprop (8218) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Scored this from Stateline Liquors in Maryland. I was very excited to try this. The one thing that really jumped out at me was the floral, citrus aromas from the hops. You usually dont find an imperial stout that has hope flavors and aromas this distinguished. Thats not to say this is a hop bomb, far from it, but citrus flavors cut through the heavy malt and make this one of the more balanced imperial stouts Ive had. Pours a heavy, oily, opaque black with a frothy, creamy, tan head. Other than the hop aromas there was plenty of toast, grains, bread, raisins, rum, booze, molasses, maple, fruits, etc. The flavor is very similar, plenty of toast, sweet dough, coffee, nuts, dark chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, molasses, and again those citrus fruits. Finish is sweet, bitter, thick, creamy, toasty, very nice. It didnt bowl me over with one particular component but it was very balanced and a nice sipper.

bhensonb (14989) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours opaque brn/blk with a two-finger finely bubbled tan head. Aromas of chocolate and toasted malt. First flavor seemed citrus, quickly eclipsed by strong dark roast/toast and chocolate. I think theres coffee, but that could be the malt. Pretty dry. Theres a light fruitiness that could be hop floating in and out. Very pleasing drink.
