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.

weak but stable foam. cloudy orange-brown beer. weak malty aroma with hints of cloudberry. tastes like wild apples and good southern hops. creamy aftertaste. full bodied beer for really strong vikings.

ALLOVATE (2720) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle courtesy of bergstaden. Prost!
2013 vintage.
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Radiant ruby chestnut displaced by a bad case of the floaties. Head lifts up a good inch and holds; Tight and tidy off white cream that laces well. Complex nose has earthy liquorice, milk chocolate, tar, prunes and dates in sweet syrup, molasses and toffee, peppery spice and just a touch of sherry. Robust, viscous and slightly oily on the palate with soft carbonation making it smooth. Lots of malt and yeast meld together harmoniously. Milk chocolate throughout. Woody, earthy and dusty with ample dried stonefruit and sherryish notes. Sweet upfront, vinous, fruity with a little tang of burnt fruit, hint of smoke and depth of wood. This carries into the oddly warming swallow. Very long and rounded. Hits above its ABV. Has a touch of roasted carob, tar, mace, pepper and vanillin to add to the nuances. I loved this ale. A wonderfully quaffable but warming and complex Dubbel. Disappointed that this may be the only bottle I get to try. Surprisingly good! (50cL, no date stamp, trade from Norway)

500ml bottle. Dark brown body with a medium head. Fudge, syryp, cinnamon, yeast & some nuts. Quite a lot of sediment.

TEJA (1821) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle at the cruis ship Viking Gabriella. Small light brown head. Clowdy red brown color. Much yeast debrie in the bottle that the waiter unfortunantly poured into the glas. Fine light caramell aroma. Typical belgian taste with both roasted taste and a sweet caramell taste in a balanced mix. Sweet but not too much. Low bitterness but balanced.

Bottle: Cloudy brown with a small, off-white head. Cinnamon, clove, toffee aroma. Taste is sweet, dusty, holiday spices.....caramel malt, light fruit. Not bad...but the spices seem a bit forced.

patricks110 (2228) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Bought at a Vinmonopolet near Tiger Square, Oslo. Pours a dark ruby colour with a finger of puffy tan head. The aroma is fruity with toffee malts. Mellow and smooth in the profile with light nutty and caramel notes. A bit sweet with apple and raisin fruit notes. The finish is mellow and medium bodied with light bitterness and a lingering spiced note.

Draft at Churchkey as Julebrygg. Poured an amber color with a small tan head. Aroma was some chocolate cocoa notes, toffee. Flavor was light caramel notes, some chocolate. I think we pronounced this correctly.... actually not awful. spices, sweet malts.

Travlr (17672) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Draft at Churchkey as Julebrygg, which arguably sounds better than Skumring. Clear deep amber brown color. Aroma of chocolate covered caramel candy. Taste is smooth chocolate, toffee, light spice. Decent.
