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.

Edmoe (239) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Black pour with (very large) brown head. Good lacing. Interestingly, along with the usual tiny bubbles found in a beerís head there were several large bubbles. This gave it an unusual appearance. Strong aroma of chocolate and alcohol. Tons of chocolate on the tongue and lots of alcohol. Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy...almost like a milkshake. A very good beer but could stand to loose some of the alcohol. It was a little distracting.

Bottle poured into a tulip -- Been passively looking for this beer for about 3 years now, and finally success. A jet black brew that you can tell is a good stout. The sour yeast adds a nice dimension that can keep you pondering this brew until the very last.

Bottle. Aroma is intensive dark chocolate and coffee, some liquorice and alcohol. Black colour, brown head. Too much alcohol for me. So-so.

Pours totally black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, burnt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and hints of soy. Taste is medium to high sweet leading to a roasty finish. Very good.

Chrishrt30 (98) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours thick and black, burnt molasses, creamy tan head that disappeared very quickly. This beer attacks the senses, strong chocolate, coffee, wheat and citrus with a slightly ashy, smokey aroma. Thick sweet and chewy. Doughy, wheaty thickness, with lots of milk chocolate and toffee sweetness and citrus tang. Grassy herbal hops and burnt malts give a great bitterness to balance. Burnt toast and cacao finish the beer to balance out the sweet alcoholic malts. Finishes thick and ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Abrakarl (293) - SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Kind of beer I just want to like. It is a precious delicacy. Prunes, plums and dark stuff, slight bit of chocolate and coffee. Right amount of CO2 for this type of beer. More chocolate in the taste than in the aroma. Very sweet aroma. Basically no head after leaving it for a minute. Thick, light brown head when pouring it slightly hard. Basically no hops. Sugar in taste, but not too much. Some alcohol for sure, but not in a bad way. Overall a very good beer, probably would be interesting to cellar a few. But there might be some complexity missing for the really top grade.

Bottle. Pours black with a small but very dark brown head. Aroma is of dark to burnt roasted malts, thick dark chocolate, a touch smoky, a boozy brandy kind of thing going on as well. Flavour is dark roast malts, caramel, chocolate, fruity, a tart fruitiness that has a port-like quality. The body is full and oily, quite an alcoholic finish but who gives a shit, it works. I daresay Odin wouldnít object to a couple of bottles of this sloshing around in his horn.
