Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: AleWatcher on 04-15-2011

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A robust Aesir porter brewed with our friends, the band Amon Amarth. Deep-roasted malts and honey give this beer its dark color and rich mouth feel. When Heimdal sounds the Gailar Horn for the last battle, this is the beer the gods will drink.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Looks like a nice thin porter. Good amount of head. Not all that much lacing.

S - Really nice smell! Almost like a black IPA. Most prominent smells are citrus, dark fruit, and hops.

T - Malts and honey. Dark fruit. Then bitterness from the hops (conjuring images of zombie dust here). Quite nice.

M - Nice mouthfeel. Nicely carbonated and well balanced. Smooth drinking. Not too thick with the honey.

O - I liked this beer a lot. Maybe a bit sweet but the hops even it out nicely!

Thanks to Ehammond1 for sharing this little number

Look: Black and totally opaque with a 1/4 inch head and great retention

Smell: Roasted malt oak and honey

Taste: The beer starts out much the way you would expect it to with some roasted malt and a touch of coffee and mid palate the honey shows up and finishes with a unique bitter floral hoppy not. That kind of ruined the flavor for me

Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation

Overall: A decent porter at best. I think the hoppy notes really hurt the beer

22 oz bomber, no date, poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours very dark brown, nearing the blackness of Hel. Capped with a creamy tan head that towers as high as the giants that assault the walls of Asgaard and leaves crusty lacing in its wake.

S- Roasted malt, milk chocolate and coffee, a trace of the smoke of burning villages and Surtur's flaming sword, some leafy hops and the pines of the Scandinavian forest.

T- Big roasted flavor up front, coffee, a sweet chocolatey center, and a lot of grains charred by the Thunder God's lightning. Towards the finish the hops, leafy and piney, become more present, finishing with hoppiness as bitter as Baldr's death.

M- Medium-bodied, creamy, slightly sticky feel with a finish as dry as the dust of your bones.

O- An awesome brew, big flavors split your skull like a Berserker's axe. If you were speared in the back on the sandy banks of a river, deep in the land of the Rus, this is the kind of beer that would keep you company in your final agonies.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured about a 1.5 finger head which was had some decent cappuccino color. Body is dark brown with some red. Goes down to about 5-6mm before you see some light through it. Some moderate lacing.

S - Oh wow, the hops are front and present. Not much porter scents but some cocoa and bitter chocolate.

T - This is nothing special. Some bitter chocolates. Not very complex. Maybe a little caramel, and slightly buttery.

M - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

O - It is good, but not a standout. I don't know what else to say about this.

Bottle

Acquired via trade
Thanks!

Dark brown with a moderately sized brown head that leaves dots of lace down the glass, though the liquid looks a bit thin.

The aroma is unique, though not magnificent. It's a fine combination of roasted and dark malts, piney and floral hops, and a bit of honey sweetness.

The flavor is a bit more successful than the aroma, and it all comes together quite nicely. This is a bit sweet for a typical porter, along with lots of roasted malt and bitter coffee flavors.

Medium bodied with ample carbonation.

A very nice, unique, drinkable stout.

Amon amarth

A - pours with one finger of light tan foam on top of an opaque, black body. The head settles slowly and leaves decent lace.

S - smoky caramel, licorice, and some nutty toffee.

T - smoky malt up front with licorice, caramel, and toffee. Some nutty character appears in the middle and fades to brown sugar, molasses, and peat smoke that lingers in the finish.

M - An oily, medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - very complex and interesting, the smoke and sugar work surprisingly well together. Not something I would drink regularly, but well made.

A: single finger head with nice lacing. Jet black with no light passing through.

S: sweet and smokey, a touch of mesquite.

T: Smokey and roasted with coffee and vanilla notes. This one is like a stour and porter mix.

M: Thick body and moderate carbonation.

Overall this one is very drinkable with the mouthfeel of a porter and the complexity of a stout.

Thanks to ehammond1 for sharing this one at MrVonzipper's tasting!

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark malt and herbal hops with some slight cocoa and coffee aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt and herbal and citrus zest hops. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good but hoppy porter.

22oz bottle poured into a 3F pint glass.
A: Almost jet black; juts a bit of pure red shows through around the bottom when held up to light. A 1-finger tan head slowly fades leaving a nice lacing.
S: Strong coffee comes thorugh up front along with a big dose of hops. A secondary caramel/sweetness comes through after.
T: Coffee, chocolate, caramel, & hops. Complex and balanced.
M: Wow, great structure & balance. Full-bodied and exceptionally smooth.
O: 3F is absolutely my favorite brewery at the moment and this is another one I really enjoy. Tasty and quite well made. Best as it warms up to near room temperature.
