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.

maybe the best imperial stout iíve ever had. looks like an ordinary impy, smells a bit better, sweet and roasty with a coffee chocolate inviting scent that is a fucking joy. smells like motherfucking símores. damn. i can taste the alcohol with the mellow dark chocolate, and it is good, roast is just right with a warm half finished cup of coffee with vanilla and whiskey. straight forward clean and delicious. right amount of sweetness, right amount of roast, right amount of bitter, this beer is all the right shit, and if the description is correct is not a kitchen sink beer, maybe more folks should streamline their recipes. iím glad whoever designed this one did. 5 10 10 5 20

Pours a rich black sable with a dark tan head - what I got was rather thin, but this was an artifact of the way it was poured. Iím sure a first pour would have yielded a nice thick head. Aroma fills the nose with rich chocolate, fine coffee, and nutty and molasses hints. Excellent flavor is like a high-quality mocha, fine chocolate and high-quality coffee; it is sweet but not cloying with nutty and molasses undertones. Texture is thick, smooth, oily and fizzy, leaving a tingly and slightly sweet finish. A real winner!

A very intense flavoured beer. Complex and inky! This was my dessert!

Odinís Tipple is decadent. It lacks complexity but that is a good thing. It is simply decadent. The aroma is less boozy than expected and has a very welcoming malt character. The finish is silky perfection.

500ml bottle. It pours thick and black and it would not look out of place being poured into your engine. Coats the side of the glass and carries a caramel coloured head that settles quickly. Weighty in the glass so you know it is going to be good. Rich deep chocolate aroma with coffee and toffee thrown in. Thick in the mouth as you would expect, almost syrupy. Smooth burnt toffee and chocolate flavours . Long and sweet on the palate. Odin would be pleasewd with this one.

Poured into a snifter. Batch 277, brewed 27/3/2010. 4.0 A: Wow is this black. I thought I knew what black is, but apparently I had no clue. The head on this is also the darkest Iíve ever seen. Itís dark brown and there was initially a good three fingers of it. Mainly frothy with good retention, but not much in terms of lacing. 5.0 S: This sure as hell is interesting. The wild yeast doesnít really give a funk in the normal sense, but it does give flavors that I can say that Iíve never had. Itís like a rancid chocolate (if that can even happen), but it isnít at all unpleasing. Or maybe a tangy earthiness is more appropriate. Either way, itís wonderful. Otherwise, this is quite sweet with tons of chocolate and caramel. An ever so light roastiness helps to add balance along with touches of peat and chicory. 4.5 T: The taste is just as wonderful. Bold, rich chocolate throughout. Sweet with caramel, but not cloying in the least. Rather, the sweetness can be likened to biting into an overripe plum. Again a light roastiness. Hints of coffee with some chicory in there. The "earthy tanginess" is back and adds several layers of complexity and ties all the other flavors together. 5.0 M: Just made it to heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess and incredibly smooth for a beer this big. No hints of alcohol at any point. 5.0 D: This is simply a fantastic brew. Aside from the wild yeast, it seems pretty simple, but it is so incredibly tasty and smooth. I wish more US breweries would start leaning toward this kind of brewing instead of making over-hyped, over-rated, overly cloying messes. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-05-2011 23:34:32

By Odinís Grey Beard! Some sort of Wizardry had me seeing flying chariots 5 hours after consumption! The darkest stout Iíve had yet, if you set it next to a pint of used motor oil, Iím not sure you could tell the difference, but thats a good thing in my book! The Blacker the Better!

Dark as motor oil at midnight, slight and rapidly diminishing head. Powerful taste of dark fruits and perhaps nutmeg. Wonderful dark beer.

Garlic_of_Doom (626) - SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Bottle. Black with a small dark brown head that mellows down and retains. Aroma is sweet at first, has chocolate, coffee, yeast. Taste has molasses, heavily roasted malt, bitter luxurious coffee, fine dark chocolate, dry cocoa, red vinous notes, cherries and a small alcohol burn at the end. Very thick and velvety mouthfeel, medium carbonation. After taste lingers on for long with many facets of the taste as well as bittneress.
Fantastic stout! 3rd time for me now and it only gets better.
