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.

Tap in Gulating, served too cold. Pours black, ruby reflections. Lack of any head. Nose: sweet-spicy, pastries, coffee, little of dried prune. The aroma is a little bourbon-like, barrelly. Aroma is sweet. And taste is dry. Very boozy. Watery and empty, hasn’t opened too much with warming up. I would believe there was any weird, forgotten fruits’ jam addition.

Cybuch (428) - Muszyna, POLAND - AUG 14, 2017
W aromacie czekolada, szlachetny alkohol, kakao, palonosc. Barwa bardzo ciemny braz, piana ladna, pozostajaca. W smaku bardzo wytrawne, kawowe. Spodziewalem sie troche czegos innego. Alkohol nie wyczuwalny w smaku, ale rozgrzewa konkretnie. Fajny RIS, brakuje gestosci i slodyczki, btw goryczka srednia do wysokiej. Dobre, ale nie do konca w moich preferencjach.

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).

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.

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 (300) - 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.

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

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 (213) - 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
