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.

Thanks to IrishColonial for sharing this one the other night. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tasting glass. It poured dark brown in color with a thin spotty tan head to it.

The aroma is very grainy and bready with some toasted malts and a little bit of caramel sweetness. It has a raw, spent grains on brew day like flavor to it.

The taste also has a big grainy and toasted malt flavor to it. I get some sweeter caramel flavors to it along with a hint of smoke. It's really grainy and bready but a little hoppiness is there as well.

The mouthfeel feels a little thin for the style with carbonation being moderate. Overall It wasn't bad but it wasn't really outstanding either. Very grainy, bready and sweet. It felt strange for the style and had definitely made me think of raw, spent grains as I was drinking it.

Citrus hops up front in the aroman. The beer is medium bodied. Notes of Chocolate and roast. Bitterness does not linger at all and is quite subtle. This porter is damn tasty!!! Three Floyds knocked this one out the park! I'm not sure of the quantaty available, but I highly recommended this beer!

dark brown with a fluffy head. Intense hoppiness in the nose with big notes of citrus fruits. The taste follows with intense hops that don't fade. This definitely isn't your regular porter with the amount of hops they dumped in. Very tasty with a light-med porter body that I expect and very little aftertaste. Definitely a tasty beer.

huge thanks to G311 for the in person swap at southampton. great to see you again!

a - opened and filled my ccb snifter. pewter 8 ball black with a greyish fizzy porter head that fizzled away within a minute. spotty lacing if at all.

s - dusty chocolate powder. smooth roast. subtle.

t/m - big robust chocolate roasted malts. big tasty flavor. richer and fuller than your average porter...but doesn't push the line into stout land. still has the cool crisp char feel and finish. really nice full bodied porter.

o - overall, a balls to the wall porter. really enjoyable. roasted chocolate fullness with a glaze of the normal porter char. great crossover porter for a stout fan. very much enjoyed this one!

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.
