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.

Draught, KØ11. Good roasted aroma, also seems to have a little sweetness. Black colour, small stable dark brown head. The flavour is a bit sweet, but balanced by some alcohol and a bit of hops. Hop bite in the finish.

brokensail (13755) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
A: The beer pours black in color with a sizable tan head. S: Rich notes of chocolate and roast with what seems to be oak. There’s a fair amount of smoke to it as well as a light spice, seems like pepper. Molasses and just a hint of vanilla add some sweetness. T: The flavor is much heavier on the smoke. A lot of roasted malt and dark chocolate with some hints of dark fruit and licorice. Espresso/coffee notes with a bit of earthiness to it. M: Rather full bodied with a medium carbonation. O: A bit smokey for me on the palate, but quite good otherwise.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark black with a small dark tan head. Very nice aroma of smooth toasted malt and some dark fruit. Full bodied with frothy carbonation. Lots of flavor. Fruit and dark malt, but coffee seems to come forth in the end. Maybe a touch of prune. Finiishes heavy and malty.
