4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour with (very large) brown head. Good lacing. Interestingly, along with the usual tiny bubbles found in a beer’s head there were several large bubbles. This gave it an unusual appearance. Strong aroma of chocolate and alcohol. Tons of chocolate on the tongue and lots of alcohol. Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy...almost like a milkshake. A very good beer but could stand to loose some of the alcohol. It was a little distracting.
0,5l bottle at home. BB 21.09.2020. black color, small coffee colored head. smells earthy, brown sugar, bit milky, light berry notes, light oxidation, lightly nutty. nice smell overall. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes earthy, tons of peat & ash, grassy, milky, peppery, nutty, marzipan, did not like it at first. but after a bit of warming up, some sugary, berry, grassy and more sweet earthy notes come through. finishes lightly sweet with notes of earth, sugar and grassy notes. did not like the taste at first when it was rather cold. after warming up its not a bad beer, drinakble but still rather heavy. a bit on the sugary side (when warm). metalspice (968) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2017
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 (5419) - 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 (238) - 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 (1677) - 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

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 MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 21, 2017
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 (190) - 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 (2202) - 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.
