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.

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.

Appearance: A complete absence of light on the other side of this one. A nice beige head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Coffee, roasted malt and chocolate.
Palate: Full body. Tad sweet with an ok bitterness. Soft carbonation. Creamy texture.
Taste: Lots off espresso and chocolate. Roasted malt and mild liqorice.
Overall impression: Solid stuff! Do not think I have to say more about that.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with OleR.

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.
