HaandBryggeriet's Odin's Tipple, dark Norse ale. 11% ABV.

A: What tiny ring of head is there is deep cocoa brown, with a golden hue. Head quickly dissipates to nothing. Decent sheeting, which seems to hold indefinitely, and holds a slight, brown inkiness for several seconds. The beer has a slight dark brown hue to it, but otherwise is pure black, all the way to the bottom of the dimple. Methinks they used darker malts! Ring around the top is very deep brown, once head has faded, and almost oily looking.

S: Very deep aromas to this one. Deeply roasted coffee, extremely dark chocolate, slight tobacco, very dark molasses. A fair amount of sweetness. Slight motor oil, maybe. Slight licorice.

T/MF: Extremely black, deeply roasted coffee dominates the palate. A fair bit of graphite on the finish; holds for quite a while. Slightly smooth, with just a touch of carbonation. Sweet cocoa starts the finish, but quickly fades out against the graphite. Blackened toffee towards the middle. There's a lot in there, but the deep roasty flavor makes the other flavors hard to find.

Might go well with a very light cake, or similar dessert. Or perhaps, as a replacement for Kahlua in tiramisu. The flavors are a bit deeper than I would usually go for, but paired with the right foods, this might do just fine.

Poured from a .5 liter bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

A-Black with a small brown head that faded fast

S-smoked roasted chocolate aroma with a bourbon smell

T-smoke, roast, chocolate and alcohol taste at first, then you get a good hop aftertaste that turns into a sweet chocolate finish

M-full body and low carbonation

O- I let this one warm up before before I started drinking this one, and it turned out great. The beer became smoother the more I had.

I've tried my fair share of RIS's and this one is one of the best by far. Pours thick and black as night, beautiful dark brown head that dissipates very quickly. Cocoa and vanilla on the nose. Tastes incredible; strong notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Truly an world-class interpretation of the RIS style. May Odin bring good fortune to those who have the pleasure of consuming this divine ale.
