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.

hayduke (4420) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poued dark brown with big light tan head. Lots of carbonation. Nose of caramel malts with spices, with orange zest, and cardamon. Cinnamon too. Medium body . Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is spicy and complex but it hangs together well. Some fruit and there is chocolate in the finish, and in fact lots of it. Overall a very tasty beer.

Bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. I rolled this before opening and there was plenty of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. An aroma of spices that is very nice. Caramel, yeast, fruit. It is kind of a dunkel but with spices. I taste caramel, raisins, orange zest, cardamon, cinnamon, yeast. Sweetness is fairly big and alcohol is a bit obtrusive. As the beer warmed it became more sour and chemical tasting. That was unfortunate after a strong start. Near the finish the feel became powdery and chocolate was tasted. This was complex and interesting and it kept bringing different flavors with temperature changes.

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Slightly hazy reddish brown color. Sweet caramel aroma with raisins. Sweet caramelly, nutty, toasty, raisins and slightly fruity taste with some peppery spiciness and hint of umami type of yeastiness. Medium to full body, rounded palate. Quite drinkable dubbel, there is some yeastiness which I’m not so fond of.

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!

(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.

@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
