Beer review: Ægir Lynchburg Natt

Time to review the beer that won the “Best new beer 2011” category in NORØL’s previous voting, namely Ægir Lynchburg Natt. This beer is their regular Natt Imperial Porter aged in Jack Daniels barrels.

Ægir Lynchburg NattLooks

Dark brown with a beige frothy head. The head has low retention but leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma

Quite strong hint from the barrel aging. Oak, vanilla, toffee, some roasted malts and a touch of alcohol. There is also some caramel sweetness present.

Flavor

The flavor is sweet up front and contains some hints from the hops used (Amarillo). Most of the stuff I got in the aroma is present in the flavor.

The mouth feel is really smooth and the carbonation level is low.

As the beer warms up a bit I’m getting some caramel sweetness and some fruity hints as well.

Finish

The finish is quite long. There is quite a lot of oak up front, then it turns slightly boozy.

Rating

I have had this beer on numerous occasions before and I absolutely love it. Score: 5/5.

This beer is available at Systemetbolaget, and from Vinmonopolet (by doing a so called private import via Cask Norway). I can strongly suggest you pick up a couple of bottles of this beer, now!
