COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ægir var ølbryggjaren til gudane i den norrøne mytologien. Ægir Bryggeri tilbyr fleire ulike ølsortar - frå lyst til mørkt øl. Interessant er det at Ægir Bryggeri med hedensk tema no lagar eit tradisjonelt klosterbrygg. Dubbel vart som kjent opprinnleg brygga av munkar. Ølet er lysebrunt, lett fyldig og smaken minner om tørka frukt og krydder grunna gjærstammen. Nyt ølet saman med kraftige oster og noko robust mat eller åleine som koseøl.

English: Aegir was the brewer for the gods in Norse mythology. Ægir Brewery offers a number of beer types - from light to dark. Interestingly, Ægir Brewery with its heathen theme has now brewed a traditional abbey beer. Originally, Dubbels were brewed by monks. The beer is light brown in color, medium heavy with a flavor of dried fruits and spices from the yeast. Enjoy the beer with strong cheeses and robust food, or alone just for the pleasure.

Skinnyviking (6772) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle at the courtesy of Rune. Very high and astonishingly long lasting fluffy off-white head. Hazy dark orange brown body. Sweet caramel raisin plum prune aroma. Roasted malt caramel cocoa bitter sweet light spicy flavor with a touch of citrus. Low carbonation. Long spicy and light bitter finish. Lovely. Alcohol level seems just right. Long time ago I had such a nice Norwegian beer. Let them keep coming Rune!

mjs (4460) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2013
(Bottle, 0.5 l, from Alko Arkadia, 20130328) The beer poured brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, hops and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, hops, malts, caramell, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Quite hoppy for a dubbel. A bit confusing but not hard to drink.

(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured dark reddish brown and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had spicy Belgian yeast and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The taste was like the one of a random Belgian strong ale. The flavours I found were Belgian yeast, sugary sweetness, malts, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. This beer was too sweet and spicy yeastiness was too overwhelming.

SirLimpsalot (2066) - SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2013
@Gyllenbock: en svag doft men en trevlig fyllig smak med toner av torkat frukt. Kunde varit mycket mer av allt. Torr eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hlynx (8) - NORWAY - MAR 1, 2013 does not count
medium body, Dark, at first not so impressive, but as it got warmer in the glass it developed and whoops it was gone. I really liked it, not so strong tastes, more subtle,

karlsnes (47) - NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013
25.02.13 Uts: rødbrun, lite beige skum, lite kullsyre. Noe gjærrester og disig (proteiner?). Duft: mørk frukt og rosiner, sødmefylt og innbydende. Maltsødme og hint av krydret humle. Smak: føles ganske fyldig i munnen, søt og tydelig alkohol, nellik og solid bitterhet i ettersmaken. Litt dårlig balansert.
