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.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle:   Pitch black, large frothy brown head, sticky lacing.   Amazing how thick and black this is.   Sweet roasted malt, lactose, slight campfire and peat.   Seems like a cross between a Scottish Ale and perhaps an Imperial Stout.   On the tongue it is very roasty, but also has big heaps of campfire, charred wood, peat, and lactose.   Body and mouthfeel are smooth and robust.   Not overly heavy like other Imperial Stouts.   Has a bit of a coffee aspect on the finish.   Very malty, low hop aspect, which is expected for a Norsk beer.   Sweet, roasty, loads of lactose, peat, charred wood, campfire.   This is not your average Imperial Stout.   It is much like Robust Porter crossed with an Imperial Scottish or something.   Hops are low, malts are high.   Very flavorful.   At first I thought it said Odin’s Tripple... and when I poured it I thought what retard didn’t do his/her homework.   It was me who needed to do the homework.   As is, very robust and flavorful beer.   Once again, proud to be Norwegian.   This is a very unique and flavorful Imperial Stout.

wvhoran (71) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2014
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 wouldn’t object to a couple of bottles of this sloshing around in his horn.

tomekk1978 (404) - POLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita, szybko opadająca i pozostająca jedynie wokół ścianek Całość gęsta i oleista. [4,5/5] Aromat: cukierki czekoladowe z alkoholem, czekolada, kakao, nieco owocowe. [4,5/5] Smak: pełny, słodowy, umiarkowanie słodki i nieco kwaskowy. Następnie wyraźna czekolada i kakao ze zdecydowanym alkoholowym (mocno rozgrzewającym) finiszem. Bodaj najmocniejsze piwo w ofercie HaandBryggeriet. Jest to imperialny stout określany trunkiem nordyckiego boga Odyna. Czarne, jak smoła, gęste i oleiste. Bardziej niż konkretne. Kwintesencja stylu. Wprawdzie piana mogłaby być lepsza, aromat i smak nieco bardziej stoutowy (dla mnie bardziej przypomina porter) i alkohol mniej wyczuwalny, ale całość i tak jest bardzo dobra. Za taką cenę duża butelka wydaje się dobrą inwestycją.

Lote 487 De color negro tirando a opaco, con una buena capa de espuma beige con poca retención. Aromas a chocolate, maltas tostadas, azúcar moreno y algo de madera. Buen cuerpo y baja gasificación. En boca cremosa, con presencia del chocolate y la madera. Algo de fruta madura y ligeramente amarga. El alcohol perfectamente integrado. Aparte de una etiqueta cojonuda, vienen detallados lote, fecha de embotellado y caducidad.
