A beer for the end of ages brewed with our friends in the band Amon Amarth. This Aesir Porter is a robust and hearty beer brewed with local honey and a small portion of smoked malt. When Heimdall sounds the Giallar-horn this is the beer to be hoisted by the gods in anticipation of the coming battle.

Rating #777, bottle from Toft Vin. Black beer with greenish-brown hue and a very dense, stable, beige coloured head - and probably the only beer I have expierienced, having a higher head three minutes from the pouring moment, than it had one minute from the pouring moment. Furthermore, is leaves beautiful lacings at the glass when drinked. Very fruity aroma that definately underlines that this is a porter, not a stout. Hop aromas are most of all peach and raspberries, mixed with mildly roasted malts. At some moments the aroma turns almost IIPA-like, but of course with a bunch of dark malts. Honey is traceable in the aroma, but not dominating. Flavor has honey, lots of chocolate, raspberries, a fair amount of oranges, grapefruit, mild coffee and a bit alcohol, all ending in a rather bitter finish with just a notch of smoke and ashes in the final aftermath. The honey is more obvious in the taste than in the aroma, but still not the dominating factor. This job it leaves to the delicious chocolaty nuances and the still-present flowery and orangey hops. Palate is close to perfect; round, soft, creamy and smooth - almost silky at some points - but still strong and thick enough to make the manifest that this is an imperial porter. 8,2 % ABV is not traceable in the classic alcoholic manner, but is underlined by the warming feel and just a bit in the aftertaste. This is mastering of the art of brewing!

Bottle via extra from emacgee (thanks!) shared with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a deep murky brown body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is cocoa, light chocolate and soft roast. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with notes of smooth mild chocolate, honey, rounded roast character and light sweetness. Really nice porter overall.

hivemind (808) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2015
01.24.2015 Bottle courtesy of James w/ him and Andy. Aroma is nice, chocolate, little bready malt. Dark pour, light tan head, medium mouthfeel with kind of a sticky character. Flavors are some chocolate or vanilla bean with a bit of dairy. Much more robust than expected. Cool label.

Steve_0 (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle at Zwanze Day 2014. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Bready, light honey, come cocoa, graham crackers, and slightly hoppy aroma. Taste is somewhat bland - some roast, a touch of coffee, some bread and twangy. Thin body with medium carbonation. This one has definitely not aged gracefully. Would have loved to try it fresh.

FFF bending the porter concept a little bit over here. Hoppy aroma. Soft mouthfeel but with a long bitter finish. Black DIPA? Very good!
