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.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 50cl bottle. Amber colour with a medium big head. Much lighter colour rhan I’m used to from belgian dubbels. Aroma is sweet with notes of bread, yeast and some brown sugar. Flavour is sweet with bitter notes. Notes of bread, yeast, malts and some faint notes of citrus. Malts and alcohol as well. A very nice dubbel indeed.

50 cl bottle at Patricks, batch 117JGB-B. Best before 2011-01-15. It poured a black colour with a medium big off-white creamy head that settled down fast in the glass. Aroma is sweet with notes of malts, yeast and plums. Some hints of pine and chestnuts as well. The flavour is slightly bitter, but in a pine-way, not loaded with hops. Notes of malts, pine, chestnuts and medium dark caramel. it has a short aftertaste.

Zoney (144) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2010
500 ml bottle. Pours hazy golden with a small tan head. Floral taste of good hops. A very nice winter seasonal, a fresh taste compared to the other brews you get in norway this time of the year.

Oysteib (80) - NORWAY - JAN 13, 2012
From bottle. Light brown color. Sweet, with slight bitterness. Surprising taste for a Norwegian christmas beer, but very very good. Reminiscent of a Belgian triple.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Deep amber. Rich, true to style aroma. Chestnuts, cereals, bitterness bordering on sourness. Malty full body, prunes, sour cherries.

Bottle at Olympen, Oslo. Dark ruby beer. Sweet and malty. Christmas spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and prunes, but I don’t think any spices are added to the brew. A little Belgian style sourish yeastiness, making a sweet and sour dimension in the finish. Heavy, almost oily. I’d rather prefer this after dinner than with food.

msalsbury (16) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours a dark brown with two finger thick head that is beige and creamy. The aroma is very sweet, with strong dark fruit elements, caramel, and warming alcohol. The aroma isn’t backed up by the flavor, which is more dry than sweet, and more malty than it is fruity or spicy. Still, a very nice beer.

Sigmund (4936) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. ABV is 7.0%. Cloudy brown colour, huge off-white head. Pleasant typical dubbel aroma, notes of brown malts and brown kandij sugar, caramel and mild spices. Well rounded mouthfeel. Medium sweet flavour, with the same elements as in the aroma. Moderate hops, as normal for the style. Very enjoyable, clearly a beer I’ll buy again.

500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Cloudy very dark brown colour, big to moderate creamy tan head. Nice aroma of malts, Christmas spices, brown sugar and some fruit. The flavour is malty sweet and rich with moderate notes of spices, dark dried fruits and brown sugar. There is a subtle acidity to balance the sweetness, but the hops are moderate. This is a very nice Yule/Christmas beer, will go better with fruit cake than the traditional Scandinavian Christmas dinner.

Det här var en ytterst angenäm upplevelse med en balans som hade tillfredställt vem som helst. Smaken bar maltiga, jästiga ochh brödiga inslag till en stabil kropp.

Flavor follows suit, some melon, cinnamon, carrot cake, nutmeg, some cream cheese icing, Graham crackers. Sweet, peppery finish. Loved this.
