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.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle … Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The aroma is a menacing marriage of dark rye malt, leather, earthy burnt hops, charcoal smoke and light maple. Full-bodied and fatty with tingly carbonation. The flavor is burnt, spicy and very bitter – mostly rye, black malts and charcoal. Lengthy, charred, bitter finish. Having seen Amon Amarth perform live a couple times, I really wanted to love this beer, but only liked it a little. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

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.
