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.

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.

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 (4092) - 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.

Nice solid Imperial Stout, nothing too crazy. Great color from the pour into the tulip glass, lovely aroma of dark chocolate, coffee beans, roasted nuts. Taste was very similar, a little bitter like dark chocolate but the finish was very smooth.

Pretty standard imperial stout, starts out chocolate, fades into bitter coffee, a little bit of booze behind it. Good beer.

Bottle
Pours very dark, almost ink black with some espresso swirl head with a retained ring on the edge of the glass leaving spots of lace here and there.

The aroma is rich, roasty, & sweet smelling. It’s got a touch of ashiness and the faintest hints of smoke. Some mild hop fruitiness, some espresso, and plenty of chocolaty character provide a complex but tightly woven and perfectly harmonious bouquet.

The flavor is roasty through and through using just enough balance and restraint to pull it off at that level. The beer has some ashiness & dark fruit but both of these are at a pretty tame presence all together. The beer is satisfyingly better with a nice level of sweetness and a nuttiness that grows and grows as the beer warms. The big alcohol is pretty well concealed, but it does provide a warming sensation to the flavor that works just right here.

The beer is mouth coating, but still drinkable & never overly heavy feeling.

Truly remarkable.
