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.

22oz bottle in a pint glass - pours dark brown with light tan head with chunks of stuff. Nose is pine or spruce hops and roasted malts. Aroma is like nose but with something sweet. Starts off bitter but turns sweeter and almost tart. Body is big and texture is surprisingly watery but a little slick. Weird. Lots of character and flavor. Way out of my element. Thanks to AR for sharing.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, with light tan head. Chocolate, roasted malt, some fruit and sweetness, & spicy piney hops. Medium mouthfeel, which seemed thin after drinking imperial stouts.

Pours dark black with chestnut edges and one finger of dark tan head. Nose is dark fruit skins and molasses, some oxidation. Definitely hoppy. Flavor is similar, oxidized hops and fruit skins. Some bitter chocolate. Medium body.

From notes. First reviewed 9/14/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into pint glass. Ragnarok takes on a chocolate black color with a nice thick coffee-colored head. The cap is full and creamy, displaying exemplary retention and leaving a ton of lace. Three Floyds knows how to make their beers look appealing. Earthy and pine hops control the aroma, which was a little bit different than I was expecting. Chocolate and roasted malt take the back seat but are full in depth and character. There is a spicy yeast character in the aroma that kind of throws me off. Up front Ragnarok masquerades as a typical robust porter, with a nice molasses sweetness, chocolate and roasted malt, and some creamy espresso. Rather abruptly, however, the flavor turns bitter in a way I am not used to in a porter. Spicy pine and earthy hops impart a much different character than coffee bitterness, giving this an interesting flavor. The finish cleans up rather well, with just a little bit of the hop bitterness hanging around. The most distinguishing characteristic of this beer is how dry it feels for a porter over 8% alcohol. The hops really cut through the flavor to create a dryness and lighten the body a little bit. The finish is bitter but still fairly clean. The carbonation is creamy, but there is prickly roughness overall. Medium bodied. Hoppy stouts and porters usually get slammed because the flavors usually do not mesh well together for me. Compared to some other Three Floyds beers, this may not stack up, but they certainly have done a better job with the execution than other attempts to hop up a stout or porter.

Ragnarok. On tap at 3floyds... Pours are darker than cola hue and topped with a light quickly dissipating off-white to beige head... Cola dark fruit aroma with a touch of roast and chocolate that comes through late. A touch hidden at first but soon develops there afterwards... Flavors are an improvement with a honey roasted cocoa nuttiness. Thin to medium bodied with a semi-bitterness towards the finish. 7/3/8/3/14

It pours dark chocolate cocoa thick in color with a big creamy tan head and tons of sediment floating. The aroma is very light, a bit o honey sweetness and some aging notes as if it has been in the cellar. The flavor has notes of honey, alcohol, and malts without a super thick body. It is smooth with a light creaminess and goes down easy at room temp.
