COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Odins Tipple was meant to be a strong beer, but we changed our minds...its still strong but we wont follow the mega strong trend. It should be possible to make great beer without the extreme alcohol potency. Odins Tipple is now approx 11% abv, it’s a dark almost black beer from lots and lots of chocolate malt. Its the malt that contributes the flavor...no added coffee or anything else, Its got a great body without being old engine oil and still very drinkable due to the wild yeast we use. This beer is made with a single strain of wild yeast and the recipe is dead simple.

Lote 487 De color negro tirando a opaco, con una buena capa de espuma beige con poca retención. Aromas a chocolate, maltas tostadas, azúcar moreno y algo de madera. Buen cuerpo y baja gasificación. En boca cremosa, con presencia del chocolate y la madera. Algo de fruta madura y ligeramente amarga. El alcohol perfectamente integrado. Aparte de una etiqueta cojonuda, vienen detallados lote, fecha de embotellado y caducidad.

Czekoladowo, kawowo, śliwkowy z odrobiną karmelu. Czarny, nieprzejrzysty, z małą pianą w pięknym kolorze. Alkohol czuć i to dobrze, ale nie jest uciążliwy. Wysycenie raczej w stronę wysokiego, aczkolwiek piany brak.

demmbonz (503) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle to snifter. Pours thick like used motor oil. Big mocha head that leaves a persistent fluffy ring. Aroma is mild roastiness with a hint of booze. Taste of dark chocolate malt for days and days. No alcohol burn. Thinner mouthfeel than expected. Prickly carbonation.

IPAgutten79 (481) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2014
Svart som natta med lavt brunt skum. Aromaen er markant av malt, men ogå mørk sjokolade. Et hint av alkohol er også tilstede. Smaken er fin, her er ristet malt, sødme, bitterhet fra humla og litt lakris. Ganske søt først, før den blir behagelig bitter mot slutten av slurken. Godt balansert, da det er vrient å gjette at denne klokker inn på 11%. Farlig... Man merker dog varmen nedover halsen. Medium/tykk konsistens, rund og god. Oljete konsistens. Personlig savner jeg litt mer kaffepreg, men som sagt, det er helt personlig!

16.9 oz bottle. Black in color with a large brown head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, molasses, heavy prune and roasted malts. Taste is of prune, light cherry, dark chocolate, heavy molasses, booze and roasted malts. A little too much carbonation for my taste, but a delicious beer.

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 24, 2014
Botella de 50 cl la ultima del lote 539 de 07-11-2012 con cad. En 07-11_2016. en cimmeria, y un par de veces durante enero de 2013. increíble cerveza con un gran cuerpo de 11 vol que se notan de principio a fin. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura. Fuertes aromas y sabores a tostados y quemados con el toque rustico y salvaje de las maltas nórdicas, unido a una gran sensación de licor. Muy buena sin duda alguna y para repetir.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Rated on 5-10-2010 (Bottle - Batch 210 - Brewed 20. 01. 09) This beer pours a medium sized very fizzy cocoa head, opaque black body, and no lacing. The aroma is malty, burnt, roasty, chocolate, alcohol, dark fruits, and hops. The taste is fruity, malty, chocolate, roasty, alcohol, and hops. The palate has a burning effect at the back of my throat. This beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is a sipping beer, worth trying, and a beer I would drink again.
