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.

500ml bottle (batch 507) thanks to Ataraxia from free beer week 2013. Gusher upon opening. Pours black and oily with a huge foamy dark brown head. Aroma of rotted veggies, nail polish remover, roasted malts, and hints of chocolate. Taste is sour coffee, burnt toast, ashy, vinous, nail polish remover, and rich dark chocolate and espresso. I’m pretty sure this is infected. I will definitely revisit this beer with a hopefully non infected bottle in the future.

Very solid imperial stout.

Pours nearly black, with a dark head. Sweetness and bitterness is well balanced. Last long in the mouth, and I love it :-)
