(NO) Dette ølet er eit samarbeid mellom Ægir Bryggeri og Mackmyra Svensk Whiskey, det fyrste whiskey-destilleriet i Sverige. Mackmyra er nyskapande i ein tradisjonell bransje og bruker kun svenske råvarer. Tretti whiskyfat frå Mackmyra vart sendt til Ægir og fylt med Scotch Ale. Ølet har modna på desse eiketønnene i tre månader. Ølet er fyldig og komplekst med eit hint av whiskey og torvrøyk, og balansert med maltsødme og eikepreg.

Garlic_of_Doom (615) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Bottle shared by Anki. Thanks! Murky brown/ruby red with a small white head. Sweet bourbon/whiskey, light smoke and sweet malty aroma. Taste is malty sweet with whiskey, smoke and well balanced bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation, round mouth feel.
Could do well with a bigger body, other than that, quite good!

morri (272) - NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Small tan head. Dark brown body with tiny sediments. Aroma is pretty sweet. Plum, toffee and leather. The whiskey notes are present. First and foremost sweet on the tongue. Dry and slightly creamy.

Wischylini (230) - Grimstad, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2014
Pours dark brown, with a faint beige head that doesn’t last. Aromas are whisky, oak and peat, and that’s about it. Taste is sticky sweet. Mouthfeel is oily, and the beer almost flat. Absolutely rubbish, tastes like syrupy whisky, and not like beer with "a hint of whisky". This isn’t a beer for those who want a hint of whisky, it’s for those who wish they could drink a whole pint of it in one sitting.
