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.

Bomber picked up by BuckeyeSammy for me from the brewery: pours blackish brown, tan fluffy head. great retention for over an hour. smoked meats, roasted malts, spicy/herbal notes, pepper, espresso, and cocoa on the nose. more smoked malts, spicy hops, vanilla and cream, espresso bitterness. this beer gets more complex as it warms. medium bodied and very drinkable. Great.

Dark brown/black beer with a one inch head poured into a duvel glass. Aroma is of coffee, dark fruit, and bittersweet chocolate. Strong malt and lightly smokey flavor. The hop bitterness blends in well and cuts through the malt nicely. There is a honey flavor present and the aftertaste definately carries dark chocolate tones. The mouthfeel is somewhat thin but manages to coat the mouth. The alcohol is well hidden. I first had this on Christmas day and will buy again until it’s gone. It is a decently complex ale for the style. Oh and Amon Amarth rules.

Lactose type aroma. Hoppy bitter finish, very resiny. Big roasty flavors. This is pretty delicious.

66cl bomber courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Cheers Dave. Opened for the pre-Amon Amarth 20th anniversary tour in Holland. Brune foncée, col beige/moka soyeux et crémeux. Arôme est malté grillé, pointe de fumé avec ce côté frais mielleux avec le houblon qui contribue à qcq notes fruitées tropicales. Palais est complexe alternant notes de malt grillé, pointe de fumé avec un côté mielleux qui se fait plus présent lorsque la bière se réchauffe. Le tout reste doux surement du au miel, et est accompagné d’une fine note d’épice. Houblon est discret laissant une brève amertume citronnée qui vient s’immiscer dans un profile qui reste dominé par le malt. Facile à boire, complexe alcool est là sans vraiment prendre le dessus. Si pas indiqué sur la bouteille j’aurai de suite pensé à une Black IPA.

Pours a pitch black beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, roasted, chocolate and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose with additional slate. The palate is soft with bitterness and sweetness. Overall a good beer with good balance and complexity.

Dark brown and beige head. Lovely rich aroma, rich dark humous and forest notes. Roasted, good amount of bitterness and full mouth filling aroma. Small yet lively carbonation. Super nice. Rich, flavourful, tasty. Great brew. (Bomber at Deanso’s tasting)

1pint 6 fl oz bottle. End of the world beer 21/12/2012. Poured coffee black wirh a creamy, beige head. Moccha, oatmeal, milk chocolate and roasted malt in aroma. Flavor has hops, roastedness, oatmeal and coffee. Silky smooth mouthfeel, quite dry hoppy finish with layers of chocolate and milk coffee. Highly enjoyable, like the smoothness and the late hoppyness. Glad I got to try this as I am a huge Amon Amarth fan.

Pitch black body, brown head. Aroma is very complex and has nice sweet roasted malts with some dark fruits and chocolate. Flavour is even more complex with some acidic, but still sweet dark malts, piney hoppiness, some hints of smoke and chocolate. Really nicely balanced and overall really fullfilling beer.
