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.

Bottle (50cl). BB 30 Oct 2011 (consumed almost 2 years after best-before date, but apparently this beer has aged gracefully). Pitch black colour, half-inch dark beige - verging on brown - head. Quite good retention, settles as a thin film with a small amount of lacing. Intriguing aroma of roasted malt and sour cherries, with smoked meat, balsamic vinegar, wood, cigars. Full body, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet-and-sour (slightly more sour than sweet) and has a mild bitterness. Finish is dry and slightly tart, with a sour cherry dominance.

The pour on this is just gorgeous. An almost black liquid with about the darkest brown head I’ve seen on a beer. Really just a lovely looking Imperial. Nose is vinous, chocolately, with some dark fruit and raisins. Flavors echo the nose, with more emphasis on the vinous qualities, though with the chocolate coming through as the beer warms. Really very nice.

vadie (519) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Noir avec presque pas de mousse, mais ce que il y a est marron. L’arôme du molasse, chocolat, un peu du café, et du malt grillé. Huileux avec très peu de carbonation. Le goût est sucré, du molasse, caramel, chocolat, café, et un très petit peu de houblon. Il n’as pas le chaleur qui est typique pour une bièrre de ce puissance! Très bonne et unique pour le style.

It’s thick and opaque with no head. A touch off sweetness and a touch of bitterness serve up complexity and toasty.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Dense black pour with a 3 finger, creamy brown head. Aroma is loaded with chocolate and nutty notes, some toffee, a little dark fruit, mild coffee, roast, light char and lactose sweetness. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate right away and for a long time, leading into some incredibly rich nutty notes, a little dark fruit, toffee rich chocolate chip cookie, just a hint of char and smoke, lactose sweetness and some floral, pine and spicy hops to the finish. Heavy body, with a creamy, slightly chewy feel, light to moderate carbonation and a surprisingly neutral finish. This is a fantastic Imperial Stout, it might not be the most complex, but it makes up for it by being extra tasty, and for having lots of sweet flavors without being all that sweet. At room temperature, it is a little hot and boozy, but not overly so, it still drinks nice.

Acid303 (398) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUN 21, 2013
50cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Pours pitch black with medium brown head, very good looking. The aroma is chocolate, caramel and roasted malts. Peculiar. The flavour is not as sweet as expected considering the smell: lots of dark chocolate, roasted malts and hops. The alcohol provides a warm sensation, definetly well integrated. Full body, good carbonation. Good job and nice contrast.

Tap: black pour with no head or carbonation. Aroma is charred roasted grain, chocolate, toffee and nuts. Flavor is nutty roast with charred grain, toffee, and leave a bit of spicy tingle on the tongue. Interesting flavors, nice drinking, I would drink more.
