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.

Thanks to Tytoanderso for this! Pours black as can be with a moderate to small BROWN head, about as dark as beer gets. Aroma is lovely and deep with chocolate truffles, unsweetened chocolate, licorice, espresso, coffee beans, nuts, and port. Flavor begins with a big whallup of cocoa, dark chocolate, espresso, fudge, and truffle dust, mixed in with a slight vinous note, and a fruity licorice quality. Finish dries out big time with roasted nuts, coffee, earth, and more cocoa/chocolate truffle dusting. Palate is quite interesting, very chewy, but not sugary or sticky and the carbonation is a little high and the alcohol is present. Seems thick in one way while thin in another. Nonetheless, this beer is damn fascinating in every respect and really enjoyable. Wild yeast? Not sure what they mean, but this is a damn good imperial stout that rivals Expedition, 110k+OT and the like.

50 cl bottle. Pours as dark and thick as can be, comparisons to heavily used motor oil almost canít do it justice. Small, very dark brown, almost black, head that quickly ran to a thin ring. The nose is a mix of high octane alcohol, molasses, thick chocolate fudge cake, huge bitter dark chocolate bars, coffee, and tons of roast. Very deep and complex, the intensity of each component changes with the temperature of the beer greatly. The high octane alcohol is very much in the fore on the flavor, which doesnít surprise me, but the lack of sweetness really does. Itís really rather highly attenuated and seems distinctly on the drier side towards the finish. Tons of bitter chocolate and heavy roast weigh heavily on the tongue. Finishes with a very earthy, somewhat funky finish, which I now (after reading the commercial description) I realize is the wild yeast. This also explains the high attenuation. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy and hearty with soft light fizzy carbonation. Finishes with a mix of funky dryness and a touch of clingy oiliness. A very interesting beer to be sure. Iíd like to squirrel away a few of these for some extended aging and see what happens with this wild yeast.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Why is everything classified as an imperial stout these days? Pours a black brown color with a small light chocolate head. Nose is black licorice, dark chocolate, and fudge. Taste is thick, dark, and slightly vinous. THick and sticky mouthfeel. Nice.

500cl - Brewed 20 01 09 - Pungent aroma of alcohol, dark chocolate, burnt malts, chewy brownies and some dark fruits. Flavor is intense but not in an astringent sort of way. Dusty malts, dark chocolate, cocoa powder and dark fruit. Palate is creamy and lush. The 11% is hidden well. A very nice winter warmer.
