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.

Ungstrup (29211) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is very roasted combined with notes of soy sauce and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, and a bit of chocolate, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

oh6gdx (20278) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2009
Bottled. Quite much opaque black colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel, sugar, strong alcohol, liquor and some wood. Flavour is quite much the same. Some chocolate also. Quite strong alcoholic and liquoriceish sweet notes.

omhper (19308) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2011
Draught at Bishopís Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Opaque black, minimal head. Vast aroma of Baileys and brandy. Malty with lots of chocolate, sweet licorice and Mars bar. Full bodied with oily mouthfeel. Potent but edgeless. Intensely warming without being boozy at all. Haandbryggeriet has certainly progressed in my eyes lately. In my point of view their early beers were eye-catching but superficial. As of lately they are real stunners, combining depth and and attractive surface.

Opaque black beer with the darkest brown head I have ever seen! Crisp palate which wasnít expected. Dark rich malt with a brandyish tone. Finishes dry and warming with a trace of banana. A bit different.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle at Plan B, courtesy of Andrť
Dark color, balck, with a medium sized brownish head. Deep aroma of roasted malts, already the liquorice can be noticed. Strong body, with a round mouthfeel and an evident alcohol perception; powerful chocolate flavor, roasted malts, and a good share of liquorice; quite sweet too. Good, but not the right balance and vibe for me.
