COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick tan head. Nose is grapefruit, pine, tobacco, spruce and dark roast. Is this supposed to be a porter? Coating medium body with soft carb ending resiny. Taste is espresso, honey, orange peel and grapefruit. Finishes with lemon tea and quinine. I would call this a black IPA.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheAlum. Thanks again! Deep brown black appearance with a dark brown head. Dark, roasty, charred malty nose. Creamy, quite piney hoppy, roasty, chocolate malty flavor. Piney, hoppy, roasty malty aftertaste. Nice brew that I wish I had regular access to.

Strykzone (4477) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Bomber bought at the brewpub. Half the 22 oz. glass is tan foam and it slowly fades leaving thick lacing. The beer is quite dark with some red, but only a little. An assertive nose that has roasted notes and bold hops. The flavor is even more aggressive than the aroma. Dark chocolate begins with those big hops. They are floral and fruity with some fairly big bitterness. The boldness settles in quickly but it remains very flavorful. Complex fruit, light ash, and molasses. Alcohol is not really tasted but brings warming. This is exceptionally well hopped for a porter but those hops add so much here.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2011
On tap. Pours an almost opaque black with a small, rough beige head. Very fresh citrusy nose which completely overpowers the hard roast malt. Only medium-bodied with a lightly roasted character, sweetish, again completely dominated by the fresh aroma hops leaving a dry bitterness. The roastiness comes somewhat late. Very drinkable - but really a Black IPA rather than an Imperial Porter. 260511

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Tap @ Three Floyds. Clear, dark red-brown pour with a short tan head leaving moderate lace. Pine and coffee nose. Medium, dry, finely-carbonated body. Baking chocolate, honey, resin, spruce, licorice and toffee, with a fantastic full and smooth mouth feel. Finish is sweet and chocolatey, wish it were drier as with the start. ABV is well-hidden.

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2011
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Deep black colour with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma is roasted, light liqourice, mild chocolate, some pepper, mildly vinious. Low carbonation, first feels a bit watery for 8 % ABV, then turns fine dry and light creamy. Flavour is elegant, to the sweet side, roasted, milky, chocolate, light liqourice. Good dry malty finish with piney hops. Delicious and very drinkable.

This was the best beer of the day when I stopped through the brewpub. It is a strong porter veering on black IPA levels of hoppiness. It pours black w/ a soapy-looking tan head. Creamy texture is lightened w/ crisp carbonation and firm bitterness. There is lots of citrus hops and a strong bready yeast character. This is a well done brew and I don’t know of many beers that better combine charcoal black malt character w/ intense hops so well.
