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.

KW92 (1226) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 28, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska
AROMAT: Bardzo intensywny. Czekolada, kawa, ciemne owoce (dżem z owoców leśnych/porzeczkowy), wanilia. W tle lekki alkohol oraz zioła.
SMAK: Ciemne słody, sporo alkoholu, lekki karmel. Długi kawowy posmak.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo dobry RIS, choć do ideału brakuje lepiej ułożonego alkoholu.

Piana jasno brązowa, niewielka, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa niemalże czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat bardzo intensywny, przyjemny, zdominowany przez czekoladę, gorzkie kakao, śliwki w czekoladzie, w tle espresso, trufle, lekka paloność, wanilia, likier kawowy. W smaku półwytrawne, lekka słodycz gorzkiej czekolady jest jednak zaznaczona, jest też lekka kwaskowość od ciemnych słodów i dymność w typie wędzonej śliwki węgierki, podobnie jak zapach w ustach prym widzie jednak deserowa czekolada i kakao. Goryczka powyżej średniej, palona, długa. Alkohol nieźle ukryty (na etykiecie widnieje data lipiec 2015 - możliwe więc, że piwo po terminie, fajnie wyleżakowane). Nagazowanie niskie. Gęste, gładkie, oleiste w odczuciu.
Udany RIS, w zapachu i smaku zdominowany przez gorzką czekoladę i kakao, w odbiorze gęsty, aksamitny, ze sporą goryczką i ładnie ukrytym alkoholem. Dla mnie może nieco mało słodki, ale ogólnie godny polecenia.

Ps.
Nie jestem też zwolennikiem ogniskowej wędzonki i kwaskowatości od słodów, ale tutaj to sprawy marginalne.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2016
Fruity, ashtray and coffee. Flavor has tons of coffee, 70% choc and dark fruits. The farmhouse ale yeast makes this beer have a slight belgian character in the aroma and flavor. Not overly carbonated though. This was good.

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
500 mL bottle. As black a beer, and as dark a head, as you’ll find. 5/5 if the head had lasted more than two minutes. Smells big, roasty, fruity, chocolate covered cherries, that sore of thing. The flavour is more milk chocolate, with some sweetened coffee. A nice hint of booze in the finish. Good body, but not heavy.

Tap at Pour House. Wheat, oak, coffee, hop aroma. Flavor is dark dark dark. Bitter and potent coffee notes. Thick texture. Not bad. Not great IMO,

magicmn (156) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 5, 2016
Tap at Eric The Red Moscow. Deep black, cream head, weak sweet aroma with notes of chocolate. Full body but dry thanks to brett. More coffee then chocolate in taste, bitter enough. A good one but not the kind of RIS i like.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Shared, cellared 0.5L bottle poured to snifters, showing a very dark mahogany, with modest, light tan head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose began with slight, age & yeast prompted hints as freezer burn scent & sausage, then roastiness, cocoa, dark fruit as plum & prune, with a bit of smokiness & char. The yeasty oddities, though somewhat inconsequential, didn’t transfer to the taste, as it was made up of nearly similar notes, adding roasted & earthy bitterness, boozy warmth, and low carbonation, all in a medium to full body. A robust brew.

Bottle. Pitch black, thock, beige head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, roasted malts. In taste sweet, chocolate notes with vanilla and licorice flavours. Full bodied, thick, bold, soft carbonated, very smooth. Light bitter finish, roasty. Very good ris.
