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.

unclemike (2832) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Pours almost black, with a moderate brown head. Aroma of dry roasted malt and wood. Taste is first of all sour, but not in the acidic way, rather more oilish and complex, red berries are noticeable together with cherry and hints of liquorice. Long aftertaste, starts sweet, ends with dark alcoholic notes, an outstanding beer.

Matwill (84) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
Bouteille de 500ml indiquant Best Before 21/09/2019. Oh on est dans le foncé ici! Liquide noir opaque avec une couche de mousse couleur chocolat. Au nez c’est plus chocolat que café, même chose au goût bien que l’alcool se fait ressentir plus qu’elle se réchauffe. Un délice

Une des meilleures de la brasseire que j’ai dégustée jusqu’ici. Ce n’est pas fantastique cela dit, c’est simplement correct. L’alcool est très bien dissimulé, il faut lui accorder cela. Mais au niveau des notes, c’est un Stout Impérial plutôt ordinaire.

KW92 (1064) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 28, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska
AROMAT: Bardzo intensywny. Czekolada, kawa, ciemne owoce (dżem z owoców leśnych/porzeczkowy), wanilia. W tle lekki alkohol oraz zioła.
SMAK: Ciemne słody, sporo alkoholu, lekki karmel. Długi kawowy posmak.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo dobry RIS, choć do ideału brakuje lepiej ułożonego alkoholu.

Piana jasno brązowa, niewielka, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa niemalże czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat bardzo intensywny, przyjemny, zdominowany przez czekoladę, gorzkie kakao, śliwki w czekoladzie, w tle espresso, trufle, lekka paloność, wanilia, likier kawowy. W smaku półwytrawne, lekka słodycz gorzkiej czekolady jest jednak zaznaczona, jest też lekka kwaskowość od ciemnych słodów i dymność w typie wędzonej śliwki węgierki, podobnie jak zapach w ustach prym widzie jednak deserowa czekolada i kakao. Goryczka powyżej średniej, palona, długa. Alkohol nieźle ukryty (na etykiecie widnieje data lipiec 2015 - możliwe więc, że piwo po terminie, fajnie wyleżakowane). Nagazowanie niskie. Gęste, gładkie, oleiste w odczuciu.
Udany RIS, w zapachu i smaku zdominowany przez gorzką czekoladę i kakao, w odbiorze gęsty, aksamitny, ze sporą goryczką i ładnie ukrytym alkoholem. Dla mnie może nieco mało słodki, ale ogólnie godny polecenia.

Nie jestem też zwolennikiem ogniskowej wędzonki i kwaskowatości od słodów, ale tutaj to sprawy marginalne.

Hallstein (419) - Skogn, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2016
Fruity, ashtray and coffee. Flavor has tons of coffee, 70% choc and dark fruits. The farmhouse ale yeast makes this beer have a slight belgian character in the aroma and flavor. Not overly carbonated though. This was good.
