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, 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.

IPAgutten79 (706) - Skui, - MAR 19, 2014
Svart som natta med lavt brunt skum. Aromaen er markant av malt, men ogå mørk sjokolade. Et hint av alkohol er også tilstede. Smaken er fin, her er ristet malt, sødme, bitterhet fra humla og litt lakris. Ganske søt først, før den blir behagelig bitter mot slutten av slurken. Godt balansert, da det er vrient å gjette at denne klokker inn på 11%. Farlig... Man merker dog varmen nedover halsen. Medium/tykk konsistens, rund og god. Oljete konsistens. Personlig savner jeg litt mer kaffepreg, men som sagt, det er helt personlig!

pours unclear dark brown with a small light beige cap, minimal retention and lacing. burnt caramel, nicely smoked maltiness, smoked cherries, raisins, umami peaks, salt, wood, soft resin, touch of iodine. light to low carbonation, medium-full body; sweetish, smoky and salty finish. not overly complex but a good smoked scandinavian ris.

superspak (3218) - Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2015
500 ml bottle into snifter; batch 210, brewed on 1/20/2009. Pours dense pitch black color with a small dense dark brown head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, molasses, dark bread, raisin, light smoke, light licorice, and roasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity of dark/roasted malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, molasses, dark bread, raisin, light smoke, light licorice, and roasted earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, molasses, dark bread, raisin, light smoke/licorice, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible imperial stout. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt flavors; and extremely smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

shrubber85 (8751) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Cola, coffee, dark chocolate malt, and green grass aroma. Dark brown-black with moderate brown head. Sweet tangy red cherry/raisin, dark chocolate malt, and light astringent flavor. Body light especially for an imperial stout. Pretty good but not a typical impy stout.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2014
Strong notes of soy sauce and alcohol. Beautiful brown sugar-like foam, endurant and slightly pesky palate with red wine-like feeling. Good. A bit too powerful at impact, and slightly ephemeral foam.
