Helt svart med beige, kremete skum. Lukter kaffe, lakris og nøtter. Mye det samme i smaken sammen med karamell og noe mørke bær. Herlig, tykk munnfølelse. nearbeer (5603) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2017
500 ml Batch 973 bottled Apr. 2016. Inky black with the creamiest non-nitro head ever seen. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark toffee, dark bread, dark fruit, graham cracker, real licorice and a touch of blackberry. Flavors of the same mix plus some espresso with cream, roasted nut, char and ash. Medium-heavy body is silky smooth with low-medium carbonation and the most dangerous drinkability, with no hint of the 11%. I guess my ratebeer quest is over, this is my only perfect score ever given. geolgau (456) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - JUL 11, 2017
Aroma is an intense chocolate cake, liquor and had a nice smokiness that works very well. Full bodied, creamy, the taste has a chocolate overload, with some slight nuts and smoke notes. Silky, balanced and complex, enjoyed every sip of it. josanguapo (1922) - SPAIN - JUL 8, 2017
From 32 Great Power. In Teku glass. Watching House of Cards 1x13-2x01. Everything well balanced, with the alcohol well integrated.As time passes, its bitterness start to increase but without breaking the balanced feeling ironcontra (450) - ATL, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 Nice beige head, not that much on the nose but great dry chocolate, leather, earthy, even somewhere somewhat tart taste. Indeed decently high body w/o being oily. I like it

Odin’s Tipple comes as a bit of surprise in the current beer climate. Breweries are gradually trying to make Imperial Stouts into bigger behemoths and with more and more ingredients. Odin’s Tipple has a kind of purity to it. It’s a black beer with roasty, chocolaty, and coffee-like flavors. The result is something less exotic than many modern Stouts, but there’s also less room for error and the brewers’ talent is given a chance to shine. There’s something about these hearty, bitter, and straightforward Scandinavian Imperial Stouts that I can’t resist. pawos (274) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Kolor czarny, piwo nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie kawowo-czekoladowe, nieco słodkie. W smaku jak na RISa brakuje nieco ciała, jest stosunkowo wytrawne. Czuć kawę oraz gorzką czekoladę. Alkohol jest dobrze ułożony, goryczka średnia andniz (336) - POLAND - JUN 14, 2017
Quite roasty in both aroma and flavor. A little bit too watery, feels kinda light - not something i would expect in an imperial stout HuskerTan (2396) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - JUN 10, 2017
A- Leather, chocolate, subtle sharpie.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Leather, cocoa, mild roast, subtle alcohol.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- Another good beer from the Hand Brewery. A pretty traditional imperial stout that is all things but boring. Not a lot to say about this one, other than it’s good and balanced. Sometimes that’s all you need. GlasgowTAD (1898) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle thanks to Jeroen! Pours almost opaque black with a fast effervescing brownish head. Aroma liquorice, cocoa and molasses. Taste is caramel sweet, slight red berry tartness, cocoa sweet, vanilla sweet, leather, oak.
