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.

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.

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.

Leighton (10954) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2010
Tap at Mugs in Brooklyn. I was really excited to try this. Poured a dark, brown-black with an intense, thick brown head. Staunch aroma of roasted malts, char, tobacco, soy sauce and chocolate. Flavor starts quite sweet with nice, dark malts. Finishes with some dry roastiness. Full bodied with average carbonation and lots of warming alcohol. There is some lingering afterburn from the booze, along with tobacco roast. Really great beer.

brokensail (10914) - 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. Thereís 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.
