Served on draft at Redlight Redlight in Orlando Florida.

Arrives to the bar opaque black with a rather dark, mocha colored head. Nice density and lacing, especially considering the abv on this one.

Aroma was severely lacking any substance. If held in front of my nose with a blindfold, I may choose shrimp as the aroma, just because I would be picking at straws.

Flavor was okay. A little boozy and sweet. No real depth of flavor. Dark fruits, raisins, alcohol.

Not a fan of this one. Too one dimensional, or no dimensional, for my tastes. Sweet and slightly boozy.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black carol stout with a nice large foamy brown color head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some black chocolates notes and light dry notes are quite enticing. Taste is also a very solid mxi between some dry roasted malt with light smooth black chocolates with alight dry hoppy finish. Body is full with somewhat of a creamy texture with no apparent alcohol. Solid interpretation of the style but I still prefer some of the other imperial stout brewed by the same brewer.

Poured form a bottle into a modified tulip glass.
A - Deep darkness, beautiful dance of carbonation is present but not overactive.
Crowned with a light cocoa creamy head. Lacing trail shows no sign of quitting.
S - Dark fruits, fig, medium chocolate not to dark, a slight hint of toffee. Malt bill
is not weighted to any one area. The nose opens up with time, leading to hints of
alcohol and mint.
T - Danish stout for sure. As big as it is still a tight flavor, chocolate malt, lingers only slightly,
the hop bite has a touch of pine, maybe juniper.
F - The initial pass is rich bodied, the middle has a quickness and feels like it wants to run away,
Finally the end has an intriguing desire to stay, the linger is quite delightful. Not to sharp on the tongue.
Definitely that Danish approach, slightly whimsical and refined.

O - A fine example, not to far a field from Stanby of the Dr. each a fine example.

A nice treat on this cool autumn morning

Cheers

With a sinful flavor like this, who wants to be good? Amager's Pride is a hearty Imperial Stout with all the roasty, malty and sweet boozy flavors in tact. Its those basic attributes that keeps the beer growing, sip after sip.

Its dark appearance is nothing short of espresso- black with little to suggest anything but, even its creamy lather that amounts on top reinforce a coffee-type of pour. Its light lace is of broken rings as the gravity of the beer seems to impede better froth and cling.

Its sweet espresso scent is quite unique- toffee, caramel, roast and toast all align on the nose to give a biscotti, vanilla wafer, and chocolate scent. As the undertow of dark-roast coffee plays out underneath, it nutty weave offers an earthy counterpart to its hearty sweet scent.

Rich to taste, the milky and velvety sweetness greets the mouth with extended-cooked toffee, molasses, burnt caramel in all their decadent sweetenss. But above that are the roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, and grilled nuts to give the beer's taste a complex sweetness that props up the beer's roast and fruit. A forward vinous twang of plumb and grape lurks in the background as the ale finishes warm, rummy and smooth.

"Pride" is a boastful Stout that showcases as much sweetness as it does of roast. If this is the brewer intent, then that goal was reached with uttermost pride, but without becoming prideful.

A: Motor-oil-black color under a brown, thick, compact and rather tall head. Rich lacings occour after a long time of dissipation.

S: Full rich heavy smell. Hard roasted sweet malts and lots of dark dired fruits, as well as strong black coffee and mild dark chocolate.

T: Hard roasted malts, sweet. Oaky notes brings a healthy dose of vanilla. Dark dried fruits, but rather held back compared to the smell. Lots of strong black coffee and some dark chocolate.

M: Very smooth feel. Full body and low carbonation. Aftertaste isn't that long, but holds a nice sweetness. The high ABV is almost not noticable.

O: A well crafted Stout, nothing edgy but that is, when it comes to this beer a very good thing.

I'm definitely in the mood for this its cold as could be tonight and thought I crack this by the fire and it pours a dark black as night hue with a one finger khaki head that disappears as soon as u blink and leaves a nice rim of lacing too,the smell is dark fruits,roasted malts,booze,charcoal and dark chocolate,the mouthfeel is full bodied with above moderate carbonation and the taste is something else just what I was looking for tonight it's dark chocolate,roasted malts,dark fruits,a touch of milky coffee and finished with a solid herbal bitterness that puts everything into order and overall I love it and I know they boiled it for six hours but man for a beer of high ABV it's nowhere to be found and this is such a easy drinker border lining on greatness with a few adjustments just what I was up for cheers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Motor oil with a reddish-brown fringe in the right light.
Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, earth, bread,
Taste: Sweet, dark malt, sweet-ripened dates
Mouthfeel: midway between effervescent and foamy.
Overall: Great. Maybe a bit too sweet for what I want in my Imperials, but I really do like it a lot.

Acids and tannins are both mid-level. I feel both dryer out on my taste buds, and wet in the rest of my mouth as I salivate. Pretty sure the west coast IPA I had before this did some damage to tonights palate, so I’m getting more bitterness than is probably here.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A-almost black with a tan head that quickly leaves to form a small ring around the top

S-rich roasted malt, dark chocolate, roasted coffee,

T-taste is very good, large roasted malt backbone with coffee, chocolate, bit of molasses, caramel, and maybe some dark fruits mixed in there.

M-very nice full body, light carbonation, dry roasted finish

Overall I really like this beer, great tasting and a nice full body makes it an above average IS

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle: a tall 500mL dark brown bottle with a fantastically artistic label.

Appearance: pours dark in the glass - absolute black. Not a hint of highlights even around the edges. An incredibly solid tan head settles to a one-finger with excellent retention and lacing. About as good as it gets.

Aroma: roasted malts dominate with coffee and chocolate, some heavy yeasts and a touch of anise. A bit subdued however.

Taste: unlike a lot of Imperial Stouts, this one has no heavy fruit or spices - it is mainly based on roast malts. Coffee, cocoa and grain with anise, and some of that 10% ABV shines through.

Aftertaste: the flavours carry through nicely - there is some oily smoothness to the aftertaste.

Mouth feel: wonderfully thick and full thanks to an intense fine sediment that lingers throughout the profile.

Overall: one of the best (albeit the most expensive) beers I have had to date. The lack of fruit and spice has not denied it complexity, but rather the intensity and focus on roast malts, molasses, anise and chocolate has produced a mouth-wateringly amazing stout.
