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.

Dense black pour with a 3 finger, creamy brown head. Aroma is loaded with chocolate and nutty notes, some toffee, a little dark fruit, mild coffee, roast, light char and lactose sweetness. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate right away and for a long time, leading into some incredibly rich nutty notes, a little dark fruit, toffee rich chocolate chip cookie, just a hint of char and smoke, lactose sweetness and some floral, pine and spicy hops to the finish. Heavy body, with a creamy, slightly chewy feel, light to moderate carbonation and a surprisingly neutral finish. This is a fantastic Imperial Stout, it might not be the most complex, but it makes up for it by being extra tasty, and for having lots of sweet flavors without being all that sweet. At room temperature, it is a little hot and boozy, but not overly so, it still drinks nice.

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 (8306) - 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.

Aroma is deep rich malts, brown sugar, dark fruits and light smokiness. Taste is sweet malts, complex fruits and candy sugars. Finishes with slight liquor warmth and slight bitterness. Well balanced. Appearance is black with a medium dark brown head that retains fairly well.

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.
