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.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder, char, and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice mix of chocolate and caramel characteristics.

Serving type: bottle.

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

500ml bottle - I do appreciate the clear and lucid English marketing babble on the label from this particular Danish brewery.

This beer pours a solid black abyss, with scant red-cola basal edges, and two fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy light brown head, which leaves some rocky promontory lace around the glass as it eventually subsides.

It smells of roasted caramel malt, bittersweet cocoa powder, a prominent grapey and plummy dark orchard fruitiness, some further free-range ashiness, stale cafe-au-lait, Scandinavian black licorice candies, and weak earthy, leafy, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy caramel malt, biscuity toffee, boozed-up black stone fruit, medium chocolate syrup, wet char, zingy anise spice, and more edgy piney, leafy, and perfumed floral verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly tame in its workaday frothiness, the body a solid heavyweight, and generally smooth, with maybe a bit of the big wowee sauce contingent perhaps marring the surface luster here. It finishes well off-dry, the toasty caramel and chocolate esters ruling the lingering day.

Overall, this is a bang-on Nordic Imperial Stout, the booze pretty much kept in check, with lots of balanced fruity and roasted flavours abounding. Tasty, but a slow sipper, as that 20-proof alcohol, is, in fact still alcohol, yaknowwhutimean, Olav?

Deep rich black - though not exactly thick, light beige colored head.

Aromas of dark licorice, anise, smoke, roast, vodka soaked dark chocolate... kind of an Old Rasputin like smell.

Flavors come alive with a smoked flavor, soy sauce, black olive, chocolate syrup diluted in half by vodka, caramel, tons of alcohol burn and some light peat. Burnt popcorn on the finish.

Feel is thick but not destructive, a moderate carbonation, nice dry alcohol finish.

For sure a bathtub beer you sit and think about. It's not an easy drinker but that's the point.

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.
