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, 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.

thewolf (12078) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Bierkoning, Amsterdam.
Pours completely black with a small, creamy, brown head. Aroma has loads of dark creamy chocolate, light roasted, slight coffee touch, a bit of blackberries. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, extremely malt heavy. Chocolate, light smoky, some oaky character, light charred, mildly roasted, some notes of cold coffee. Long, lingering, malty bitter aftertaste. Very well composed beer. Nice.

thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2010
This batch 210 bottled brew born on 20.01.09 from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized very dark brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation completely opaque black colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was malty vinous dark chocolate and dark malt. The motor oil thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The strong semi sweet flavor contained notes of vinous roasted malt and hops. A very potent wonderful best in class brew.

Bottle. Black pour with some brown head. Light warming, some roasted chocolate, licorice, some caramel and smoke malt. Well thinking it was a triple, (tipple), got to try a pretty good stout.

DocLock (9984) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle from State Line. Pours onyx w 2f deep brown head, turbid, with great lacing. Nose is intense dark roasty malt, dark choc, blackberry. Tastes rich, very dense, complex, with notes of dark malt, dark choc, blackberry, oats, some lactic hints. A true rihc, complex powerhouswe of a beer, worthy of wielding Odinís spear and armming it into your kidneys and liver.

500ml bottle consumed at Church Key in San Francisco. Pours black as you can get with a frothy tan head and good lacing. Aroma is somewhat typical of an imperial stout: chocolate, coffee, earth, and roast. Very intense and if anything, Iíd say the chocolate dominates. Flavor is also extremely intense. Rich chocolate and coffee, medium sweetness, smoky charcoal, and earthiness. Very thick and full-bodied with a creamy texture. This is a rich one, thatís for sure. This is strong and flavorful, but was not quite a standout within the style. Iím trying to rate to style with the "overall" score these days, and Iíd say itís better than about 3/4 of imperial stouts out there, so 15 sounds about right. Itís tough to take down the whole bottle of this.

Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Thin head of dark brown bubbles that does not linger for too long. Luscious aroma loaded with dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, molasses and lots of yumminess. Color is your basic black, with black highlights. Noticable alcohol presence up front slaps you in the face. Lots of dark roasted malts, a hint of mild coffee, carbon, ash, sweet molasses and lots of chocolate. Slick and oily mouthfeel that is super smooth. Nice alcohol warming and is not overpowering because of the thick and flavorful brew. A very good imperial stout.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle thanks to Brundo4
Black with a ruby-slate head, darker than even Hunahpuís. Significant smoke, chocolate, light anise, and roasted malt in the nose. Lightly ashy flavor of plum, dry birch, chocolate, and more roasted malt. Great ashy balance, never oppressive like Mikkeller or De Molen, dry but lengthy through the roasted malt finish that shows light ethanol. The ash and malt work in balance unlike most, and the lightly chalky palate accompanies this. All around enjoyable and very integrated.

Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one at our tasting. A-pours a viscous dense black motor oil looking liquid with a dark brown, mahogony head. S-deeply roasted malts up front, notes of acetone behind, hints of coffee and chocolate in the middle, lots of dark fruit sweetness in the back, plums raisins, and a touch of cherry. T-lots of chalkiness up front, notes of tobacco, lots of roasted dark malts, light coffee and chocolate. the finish adds acetone and sweetness, plums and raisins soaked in rum. M-big feel, full bodied, creamy but a little grainy in the back, lots of carbonation, crisp finish and slightly dry. D-this is huge, not insanely drinkable but a decent job on the flavors. a little boozy in the back but still a ton of roasted malts and a good balance of sweetness.
