Pours black color with a small off-white head. Roasted malts on the nose with caramel and some chocolate, mild cocoa and vanilla also. Very sour dark berry notes on the flavor, probably infected, cocoa and some malts appear also. Unfortunately an infected bottle, I had high hopes for this.

50 cl bottle @ home. Brewed 26.04.2012, bottled 06.02.2013
Aroma is oaty with dark chocolate and hints of soy sauce. Flavour is rather tart with woody tones, sour cherries, bilberries and some roastiness. I wonder if the tartness is intended? Feels like a sour brown.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Tar-black pour with a small, fleeting, rusty head. The nose is a blend of fudge, dark mocha, bourbon, oak and assorted, acidic, dark berries. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is charred and lightly tart with lactic acidity and some booziness. Finishes tart and roasty. Infected? Probably, but still enjoyable. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured jet black with a thin, light brown head. Aroma of tart, ripe berries with some roast. Tart, sour, lots of dark roast and charred grains. Acidic and vinous wine-like notes too. Really nice when the roast comes in to balance the tartness. Still, though... Very sour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a small dark brown head.
Aroma has chocolate, smoke, wood, vinous notes, coffee.
Tart green apples and wood at first, then roasted malt, chocolate, ash, sour cherries and some alcohol.
Medium body, medium carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Long bitter, chocolate-and-red-wine after taste.
Hm...Iíve had a regular 3 year old Odinís Tipple and it had the same tart qualities. Some people mention infection, I guess itís the wild yeast plus the oak. Not bad but nowhere as good as the regular Odinís Tipple.
