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.

Batch 349 (2011 bottle?), opened in 2013.

A - Straight black body with no highlights; one of the darkest beers I've seen. Dark milk chocolate head settles into a medium halo. Low lace.

S - Cocoa powder, brown sugar, dark fruits, light balsamic vinegar, chocolate cookies.

T - Very sweet; caramel, light brown sugar, chocolate cookies, touch of booze, pumpernickel bread, burnt toast. Nice integration.

M - Thick, full body, low carbonation. About spot on for an RIS.

O - A little too sweet for the style, but otherwise well crafted.
