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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2009 Bottled courtesy of DeputyAndy. Guys, seriously.. there is a pictures of Odin equip with helmet, spear and horn on the front. If any beer has started with a 5.0 and had to work its way down from perfection, itís this one. Iím sure Odinís looking down from Valhalla and giving a gentle nod of approval to the boys at Haandbryggeriet. Good Vikingís ale! If I were to sail off, exploring isles off the Arctic northern coast of Norway.. I would have Haandbryggeriet Odinís Tipple in hand and wielding a battle axe in the other. Pours deep brutal black. Taste is espresso, tobacco, bacon, and chocolate. Rich and thick palate. Straightforward and fantastic. I could not detect any alcohol at all.

Snegurochka (385) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 Dark as a winter night above the Polar Circle. Promising scent of licorice, cinnamon and tobacco, but taste of vinegar, horse blanket and cough syrup. I was not able to finish my glass. To drink this beer and like it, I guess you have to be a medievalist , like one of the people I shared the bottle with at a beer session in TromsÝ 02.04.09. (Thanks to Rune)

JK (4377) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Very good, but definitely not for everyone. In a British style, with high alcohol. Black, and very little carbonation at all, nearly flat. Big malt aroma. Simple flavor, sweet and heavily roasted malt and grain. The alcohol isnít really hidden, I can taste it and feel it on my tongue. Rich, thick palate. A slow sipper. It is quite expensive.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Pours with a dark brown body topped by a thin to medium thick head with little lacing. Itís slighlty sweet with notes of anise, roast, smoke and chocolate. Medium to full bodied, well carbonated and a touch warming.

Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2009
A pitch black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark brown head. It disappears quickly. The aroma of smoked malts with coffee with some chocolate with dark fuits like berries. The taste is bittersweet. There is smoked malt with a little sweet fruits. Notes of chocolate and alcohol in the back. The aftertaste is dry bitter.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Pours black with a thick deep black head that resides after a few minutes. Crushed oreo cookie, roast, and alcohol on the aroma. Nice palate, deep roasty taste, the alcohol lurks in the background, but never gets overbearing. A very nice brew.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Pours an oily opaque with a creamy dark tan head. Has a sweet dark caramel and roasty dark chocolate nose with a hint a of plums and smoky peat. Starts with good fullness and sweet smoky dark caramel well balanced with roasty bittersweet coffee and dark chocolate in the finish. An enjoyable and fairly drinkable imperial stout that hides its alcohol well.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2009
(Bottled) Almost black with a smallish but firm, medium-brown head. Very roasted-malty aroma with molasses, salty licorice, dark chocolate, touch of alcohol. Very roasty, somewhat burned-ashy, sweetish-malty flavor with a touch of licorice, berries, and black coffee. Alcohol feels warming and slightly burning. Medium to full body, slicky palate with lowish carbonation. Ok, but too burned for my taste.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Medium statured choco brown head upon a black body. Retention is very good with decent lacing left behind. Pleasently roasty, chocolatey nose, light smokiness. Med/full bodied brew. Oily on the palate, slick and viscous. Chewy chocolaty flavors along with lesser notes of caramel and toffee, faint licorice and of course the dominant roast factor. Well balanced and enjoyable especially @ 11% ABV. Slick roasty finish.

Bottle shared by sloth at SL, thanks brother! Nice black color, with a good mocha colored head. Looked great! Nice aroma of roasted malts, maybe some caramel... Taste is a nice impy... Lots of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, maybe some smokiness in there. Texture was silky.. Easy to drink considering its 11 percent. Nice brew overall, thanks bert!
