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, sent from StFun (thanks a lot, Josh), pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma is full of roasted malt, a little smoke, a little anise and licorice. Flavour brings out some roasty notes, some metallic notes, a bit of smoke, and oxidation. Full-bodied, a bit sludgy, with some notes that don’t really blend well -- seems a bit off the mark for the Three Floyds typical quality. Only decent.

DrSilverworm (5017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Dark red, dark brown color, but clear still. Good thin light brown head. Nice spread of lace. Good earthy piney tasty malt nose. Nice dark chocolate notes in the flavor. Bigger body, good smooth but crisp lighter carbonation. Some cola. Hint of herbal / tobacco notes. Light bitterness... Some sweet... and some odd tartness, as well. Not too bad alcohol for 8.2%, just that strange sourness in the finish... Still though, a great hoppy porter. Was taken aback by how hoppy Three Floyds’ Alpha Klaus was, but I can’t help but like this particular hoppy porter... More good portery malt balance, less over-the-top hoppiness, here.

maxwelldeux (3052) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle at a bottle share. Pours a rather dark brown color. Nose is very slightly sour with some floral hoppy elements to it. Taste is a tad bitter with some good roasting in there. Nice and smooth.

rxeight (1041) - Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle that has been in my cupboard for over a year. I had fresh and thought it was very hoppy, almost black IPA like. Tried this bottle aged. Completly black pour. The hops are gone. Left behind a dark stale malt with a bit of licorice and tar. Tastes like an english style porter. Not a fan of these porters without any sweetness. Fairly thick

Black liquid. Licorice and burnt malt in the nose. Tiny offwhite head. Blanced well tasting rich stout. Low carbonated, not to viscous.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2013
Oily black pour with a good creamy tan head. Aroma of licorice and roasty malts. Some smoke. Rich mouthfeel. Suprisingly balanced. After smelling it I was prepared for a licoricebomb, but the tastes blend well. Licorice, some wood, leather and roasted malts. Good indeed, though not as crazy as expected.
