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.

Moolesen (503) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2010
This almost black beer has an amizingly dark head. In the nose chocolate is very dominant,but also tar is present. No clue why itís an "ale"... Very "dark" taste, toast, smoke but also quite delicate. Alcohol is obvious present. A dangerous beer !

Bottle, batch 210, shared by akevitt. Pours an opaque black body with dark brown head. Aroma of rich dark chocolate, earthy coffee, dark fruit, candi malts/sugars along with possibly licorice and a light alcohol burn. Flavor is the same along with a light coconut/vegetal flavor. Not quite as thick on the palate as the top imperial stouts, but still fairly heavy. Soft, syrupy mouthfeel and well-carbonated. Nice dark chocolate finish with a long, but light, alcohol burn.

20100712 500ml bottle, batch 210, from State Line. Pitch black, opaque, with thin chocolate brown head of medium foam. No lace, though the beer coats the glass with a bronze film. Aroma is boozy, rich with vanilla bean, dark rum, cooked prune, mild smoke, dark roast coffee, and hints of bitter herbs. Flavor is lightly sweet across the palate with medium bitterness mostly late. There is a light acidic tartness that comes in toward the end like dark chocolate, and a lingering fullness thatís somewhat soy-umami-ish. Coating mouthfeel without being stupidly sugary and still retaining a pleasant level of fine carbonation. Really nice stuff without being ridiculously hopped or sweet or alcoholic. These guys make good beer.

thewolf (12194) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Bierkoning, Amsterdam.
Pours completely black with a small, creamy, brown head. Aroma has loads of dark creamy chocolate, light roasted, slight coffee touch, a bit of blackberries. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, extremely malt heavy. Chocolate, light smoky, some oaky character, light charred, mildly roasted, some notes of cold coffee. Long, lingering, malty bitter aftertaste. Very well composed beer. Nice.

thedm (5887) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2010
This batch 210 bottled brew born on 20.01.09 from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized very dark brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation completely opaque black colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was malty vinous dark chocolate and dark malt. The motor oil thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The strong semi sweet flavor contained notes of vinous roasted malt and hops. A very potent wonderful best in class brew.

Bottle. Black pour with some brown head. Light warming, some roasted chocolate, licorice, some caramel and smoke malt. Well thinking it was a triple, (tipple), got to try a pretty good stout.

DocLock (10095) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle from State Line. Pours onyx w 2f deep brown head, turbid, with great lacing. Nose is intense dark roasty malt, dark choc, blackberry. Tastes rich, very dense, complex, with notes of dark malt, dark choc, blackberry, oats, some lactic hints. A true rihc, complex powerhouswe of a beer, worthy of wielding Odinís spear and armming it into your kidneys and liver.

500ml bottle consumed at Church Key in San Francisco. Pours black as you can get with a frothy tan head and good lacing. Aroma is somewhat typical of an imperial stout: chocolate, coffee, earth, and roast. Very intense and if anything, Iíd say the chocolate dominates. Flavor is also extremely intense. Rich chocolate and coffee, medium sweetness, smoky charcoal, and earthiness. Very thick and full-bodied with a creamy texture. This is a rich one, thatís for sure. This is strong and flavorful, but was not quite a standout within the style. Iím trying to rate to style with the "overall" score these days, and Iíd say itís better than about 3/4 of imperial stouts out there, so 15 sounds about right. Itís tough to take down the whole bottle of this.
