HaandBryggeriet Odin's Tipple pours a dark molases hue with a dark brown, short, short lasting head. Final rest is to an opaque brownish black liquid. Aromas are strong and well noticed. Pleasant of dark fruit with a little sour. Smokey hints also come about. Mouthfeel is sleak, medium dense, and mildly carbonated. Well made and continually changing for the better.

Batch 297
Brewed 30.06.10

Poured into snifter. Might be the blackest beer I've ever seen. Strong pour results in a fingers worth of dark brown head. Becomes a creamy crown for the rest of the session. It's a looker.

I got smacked in the face with the aroma. Really complex...alcohol is definitely present with charred wood and sweet dark fruit. Also pick up a hint of mollases.

Taste has alot going on.Dark cherry, chocolate, maple syrup, charred wood. All this is backed by a slow alcohol burn. A slow sipper that opens up further as it warms.

Mouthfeel is heavy. Some may say to much so, but I enjoy it. Still goes down pretty smooth.

Overall...I really like this beer. So complex and warm. It is a little hot but doesn't distract. It's a big boy RIS for sure. My first offering from Haandbryggeriet was a home run. Look forward to trying more.

Pours thick and black with a finger of dark brown head. Absolutely vicious looking.

The aroma is sweet dark fruits in the forefront. Some nice floral hoppiness underneath. A large roasted malt profile creeps in as well as some teriyaki notes.

The flavor is an assault of bitter hops, roasted malt, and dark fruits. Fudge brownie sweetness is also quite abundant. The teriyaki I picked up in the nose also carries over to the flavor and provides a bit of a beef jerky/leathery edge. This is an extremely complex beer. Perhaps the sweetness could be toned down a tad, but otherwise exceptional.

The body is full and the carbonation is high and a tad stinging. Drinkability is OK for the ABV, but I am feeling bogged down after about half the bottle. Overall this is a fantastic beer and one worth purchasing if you see it.

bottle from Steins in New Orleans.
been looking for this one for a while.
Pours like a thick ass stout. not sure why they call it a dark norse ale... though I guess it is.
he head is unlike anything I have ever seen. it stays at 1 finger the entire hour I drink it. lacing is off the chart. Smells and tastes like carbonated coffee. Worth the wait I have been putting in. I wish I had bought more. ends with a very bitter finish. Overall, nice. I want more, but only bought 1.
