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.

mezr (115) - California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Poured an almost inky-black from a 0.5L bottle into a stemless snifter. No head formed, just some bubbles that quickly dissipated and left a dark tan ring around the black abyss within. On my second glass I purposely tried to form a head (pouring high and straight), but this brew was determined to stand its ground, again leaving only the inviting darkness. We sometimes use terms like "no light can pass through it" to describe how dark a given Stout might be. In this case I took advantage of having no stem on the glass, and placed a halogen flashlight squarely against its bottom. This Stout swallowed everything that bulb could put out, so ... "no light can pass through it". Really! The aroma was all chocolate. I expected (and hoped for) coffee, but it wasn’t there. On my first sip I felt it was too cold, and decided to let it set for several minutes. My second sip revealed an immediate, but soft sweetness, followed by a smooth transition to a moderate bitter at the end. This is a full body Stout that’s "thick and slick" on the palate. Very soft carbonation, but not flat at all. It possesses a quiet, moderately long finish. Also, given the 11% abv I was surprised (and pleased) that the alcohol never made itself evident. This was a very enjoyable beer. And for what it is, it’s a "Great Beer". That said, for my own liking, it wasn’t as complex as I would have liked. The sweetness was constant, and I think a hint of coffee would have been ideal. But you can put this one in my Christmas stocking any time. Job well done by the brewers at Haandbryggeriet.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Dark almost black with beige head. Nose with coffee and cocoa bean and some siroup. Taste is alike with brand and beans.... Pumpernickel is also part of it. Palate with some bitterness but sweet is still main direction. Good beer.

SB beställning, flaska. Kolsvart med bränd arom och dött skum, men mörkt (grått ? ). Tar inga fångar. Mäktig som en trimmad Celebrator. Bättre än de svenske. Låg ton avv malt och torr med kort smak av kaffe, choklad. Lättsammare än jänkarna men samma procent.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (cremosa y de retención decente). Poca carbonatación. Aroma a malta torrefacta, café y chocolate. Sabor que incluye todo lo anterior, con final amargo y ligeramente alcohólico. Fuerte y buena.
