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.

opens with a great aroma of, i believe, cascade hops. Very thick head that holds forever. Hoppier than expected, but in a good way, not necessarily to style bud delicious. The only detraction is a slight astringency on the side of the tongue afterward. great beer.

This one bad ass porter. It’s packed full of rich smoky & sweet chocolate flavors. Wish I had more.

Mycket välbalanserad. Trevlig rökig doft och smak. Inte tung men mycket len och trevlig. Fin rökighet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating #777, bottle from Toft Vin. Black beer with greenish-brown hue and a very dense, stable, beige coloured head - and probably the only beer I have expierienced, having a higher head three minutes from the pouring moment, than it had one minute from the pouring moment. Furthermore, is leaves beautiful lacings at the glass when drinked. Very fruity aroma that definately underlines that this is a porter, not a stout. Hop aromas are most of all peach and raspberries, mixed with mildly roasted malts. At some moments the aroma turns almost IIPA-like, but of course with a bunch of dark malts. Honey is traceable in the aroma, but not dominating. Flavor has honey, lots of chocolate, raspberries, a fair amount of oranges, grapefruit, mild coffee and a bit alcohol, all ending in a rather bitter finish with just a notch of smoke and ashes in the final aftermath. The honey is more obvious in the taste than in the aroma, but still not the dominating factor. This job it leaves to the delicious chocolaty nuances and the still-present flowery and orangey hops. Palate is close to perfect; round, soft, creamy and smooth - almost silky at some points - but still strong and thick enough to make the manifest that this is an imperial porter. 8,2 % ABV is not traceable in the classic alcoholic manner, but is underlined by the warming feel and just a bit in the aftertaste. This is mastering of the art of brewing!

Bomber from the 3Floyds brewery in Munster. Absolutely wonderful aroma of honey and hops. Pours very dark - perfect porter, just below a stout - with very little head. Mysterious white particles floating about throughout - what are they? Flavour is rich and roasty, hoppier (bitter) than expected. Fairly smoky and sweet, with a nice body. Bitter smoke at the fore of the tongue, rich maltiness at the back. Very nice, complex beer. One of the best porters I’ve ever had.

Deep brown, with a beige head. Aroma of smoke, char, asphalt, cocoa, pencil shavings. Flavor of cocoa, smoke, bacon, coffee. Awesome.

Bottle bought in Munster in October 2011, enjoyed in April 2012. Black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. chocolate, smoke and some hops. The taste was not heavy but very balanced and elegant. Really drinkable beer. I would love to drink this one again in the future.
