Notes / Commercial Description:
Odin's 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.

When I opened it, I was not able to drink it, because of this ashy acrid taste especially in the aftertaste. I prefer chocolate above coffee notes in any dark beer but this goes beyond coffee. It speaks for itself that at the end of the night after a couple of cigarettes, I was able to finish it. I will avoid this in the future

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

july 15 B 874 batch
pours super dark brown with a reddish hue and
a typical burnt butter colored rim.
definitely has an anise aroma.
if I get chocolate it's just a hint.
nice licorice and a hint of gingersnap taste
I could see drinking this by a roaring fire in a
hut in the norse countryside in the dead of winter!

A - Pours black with no head, just a tiny ring around the edge.
S - Not a strong aroma. Just a little bit of roasted malt.
T - Flavor is dark and roasty. More cold coffee than dark chocolate.
M - Medium mouth feel, low carbonation.
O - The label calls it a Dark Norse Ale, while BA calls it an RIS. Dark ale seems more like it. I expect more head, stronger aroma and thicker mouth feel with an RIS. A fine beer but nothing special in my book.

Pours darkness in a glass, dark brown 2-finger head, nice retention.
Clean and appropriate smell, full of roasted tones, chocolate, coffee, licorice.
Taste follows the smell plus wood tones.
Full body, mild carbonation.
RIS as it has to be.
