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, itís 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.

500 mL bottle from the Crowfoot Co-op in Calgary, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a moderate brown head that remains as a thin cover and leaves a hint of fine lace. The nose has lots of roasted malt, earth, herbs, caramel and a touch of smoke. The flavour is medium-sweet with roasted malts, espresso, herbs, smoke, earth and a touch of anise. The finish is long and herbal with anise and roasted malts. On the palate it is full in body with a creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, a nice imperial stout on the drier end of the spectrum; somewhat reminiscent of an imperial porter. 2014-09-28

Bottle poured into a tulip -- Been passively looking for this beer for about 3 years now, and finally success. A jet black brew that you can tell is a good stout. The sour yeast adds a nice dimension that can keep you pondering this brew until the very last.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2015 Draught. Black colour, brown head. Aroma is intensive cherry, praline, alcohol, some coffee. Full body, quite heavy. Very good. Previous rating: 5 Aug 2014 Bottle. Aroma is intensive dark chocolate and coffee, some liquorice and alcohol. Black colour, brown head. Too much alcohol for me. So-so. 5/4/4/3/14

Pours totally black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, burnt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and hints of soy. Taste is medium to high sweet leading to a roasty finish. Very good.

Pours thick and black, burnt molasses, creamy tan head that disappeared very quickly. This beer attacks the senses, strong chocolate, coffee, wheat and citrus with a slightly ashy, smokey aroma. Thick sweet and chewy. Doughy, wheaty thickness, with lots of milk chocolate and toffee sweetness and citrus tang. Grassy herbal hops and burnt malts give a great bitterness to balance. Burnt toast and cacao finish the beer to balance out the sweet alcoholic malts. Finishes thick and ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kind of beer I just want to like. It is a precious delicacy. Prunes, plums and dark stuff, slight bit of chocolate and coffee. Right amount of CO2 for this type of beer. More chocolate in the taste than in the aroma. Very sweet aroma. Basically no head after leaving it for a minute. Thick, light brown head when pouring it slightly hard. Basically no hops. Sugar in taste, but not too much. Some alcohol for sure, but not in a bad way. Overall a very good beer, probably would be interesting to cellar a few. But there might be some complexity missing for the really top grade.
