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.

MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black color, some yeast sediments in there. Nice, lasting tanned head. Strong aroma of licorice and roast. Some alcohol in aroma. Flavor is immensely sweet, roasty and malty. This is an awesome brew, well balanced and full bodied. Epic!

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

Gedronken @ RBESG 13 Grand Tasting, bruine kleur met een kleine beige schuimkraag, ruikt naar mout, hout, caramel, smaakt zoet, caramel, koffie/thee, maar teveel koffie voor mij

shigadeyo (2962) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

6/30/2011: Three Floyds Amon Amarth Ragnarok... Aroma: Wow, totally unexpected aroma of HOPS - must totally be dry hopped to hell and back - supper fresh and leafy HOPS! More roasted coffee beans seems to emerge as the beer warms. Appearance: Opaque, dark brown color with reddish highlights; static head of really fin beige-colored bubbles; fine lacing effects. Flavor: Intense chocolate and leafy hops (citrusy) followed by a more subdued dry roasted maltiness; the hoppiness smoothes out a bit with each sip, although it still dominates with the dry, roasty, mocha-like maltiness being pretty far back in the background. Palate: Medium-bodied, but seems to drink more full; smooth going down with a calm, almost silky mouthfeel. Overall: Typically I don’t care for high-hopped of overly dry-hopped porters and stouts, but this one is growing on me for some reason...

22 fl. oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #216 for this beer.
