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.

Meilby (10584) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle 650ml @ My 30th birthday tasting
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, citrus, coffee and a hint of alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long chocolate, citrus bitter finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft and Twilight of the Thunder God was playing in the background.

hopscotch (10532) - 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!

adnielsen (10424) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2011
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.

Barril. Pitch black colour. Roasted maltiness with pine hoppiness, citrus. Good thick mouthfeel. Lovely roasted maltiness in the flavour with pine, citrus hops, amazing the the hops is so noticeable. Roasty malty fruity long lasting bitter finish. Fantastic!

DrSilverworm (9672) - 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.

Very smooth, very easy to drink, dangerous, wish I could get it again!
Was not sure I could be non-biased when rating this beer, since I am an unhealhty big fan of Amon Amarth, though I do think I managed to rate it "as any other beer" without too much emotions to it.

Bomber bottle thanks to Olli, guitarist from Amon Amarth! Third time I have the beer now (didn’t rate it in June when I had a bottle).
