The can before you bares the Helm of Awe, a mysterious symbol of Viking lore. The eight-sided figure looks like a series of tridents radiating from a central point and is said to inspire fear in one’s enemies and bring protection to those who use it. Likewise this roasty oatmeal porter was designed to protect the imbiber from the cold winter months. It’s flavor is both smooth with hints of roasty bitterness. Dark chocolate, coffee and roasted barley give way to a dry finish that makes for a highly drinkable dark ale.
