barn0216 (537) - California, USA - DEC 20, 2012
YES. Deep black color, creamy tan head though not much lacing on the glass. Rich dark chocolate aroma, cigar tobacco, bourbon. Taste up front is a little boozy, a little sweet but not cloying. Tobacco, whiskey, bitter chocolate, something like fig, more whiskey. Again, it is boozy but in the best sense of the word. Roast bitterness in the finish. Lots going on here, very well blended. Sip slowly and enjoy one of the finest porters you are likely to experience.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2016
BIG thanks to bergstaden for this monster. My last bottle from Ægir and it’s an absolute gem.
At cellar temperature and into a snifter. Inky black and headless aside a tannish ring on the meniscus. Deeply nutty is the nose and brimming with notes of Madeira, cola soda, stewed rhubarb, vanillin, cellar must, fatty biltong, marzipan and nougat. Lighter than expected on the palate. Well attenuated. The alcohol restrained to a light warmth in the finish. Nutty, oaken with a fruity, vinous sweetness to the front. Chocolate and charred wood, marzipan and a spicy, peppery prickle to the tail hinting at the bourbon barreling. A sourness draws on the saliva glands but it is balanced and harmonious with hints of vanilla and sweet berries. Plenty of malt character but it is the ageing that is key here. Wonderful depth, the aroma playing straight into the taste really gripping the olfactories. I loved this one. Really wish I had tried it fresh with another sample to compare. Artisinally made perfection. (2012 vintage, 50cL)

Bottle at Banksia, Copenhagen. Poured almost black with a round light tan head. The aroma is big red berry fruit, sweet malt, fake sugar. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich smooth alcoholic sweet malt, big fruit palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation. A really super beer and quite a find.

Hopmaestro (1141) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2016
Aroma is rich from the barrel notes. Bourbon, vanilla and wood. Also coffee and raisins. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, licorice, dried dark fruits. I don’t like that tiny sour twist in the end though. I guess it’s from the barrel ageing? Sour wood. Other than that, good stuff.

Mad_Ferret (947) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
Bottle from SB. Dark brown, almost black, thick slow building tanned head. Sweet chocolate sauce and bourbon aroma. Slight hard boozy woody from the bourbon, but overall fairly smooth. Taste is sweet and meaty with chocolate, slight tar and licorice, bourbon and vanilla. Dry warming finish. Big body, soft carbonation, oily silky texture. Big and sweet, distinct flavours, quite balanced and drinkable. Good stuff!

Brewhemia (151) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 9, 2016
Very dark brown with almost no head. Sweet gentle aroma of vanilla and honey. The taste is sweet vanilla and honey as well but also smooth chocolate and coffee flavors. A gentle bitterness in the finish offers balance. Really the moneys worth in flavor.
