Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

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.

Appearance is a deep, dark brown with hardly any head. The nose is quite weak, especially for an RIS. The flavor profile is a solid combination of malt and dark fruits with roasted bitterness on the finish. There is also a touch of alcohol warmth on the finish as well. This is a very good, but not great offering.

The beer comes with a small tan head with a dark black color.

The aroma has roasted malt, chocolate, wood, ash, and some dark fruit.

The flavor has tons of dark fruit, licorice, sweet chocolates.

As it warms up. There's a huge dark burnt ashy flavor. It's like rotten wood almost with its dankness. It really has strong ash, but not offensive.

There is an easy finish with a slight bit of booze to clean things up. The mouthfeel is creamy and quite light for such a huge and roasty beer.

I had this next to Alesmith Speedway and preferred this. What a fantastic brew.

500ml bottle into a pint glass. Batch 467

Pours a pitch black color with no head whatsoever. 0 carbonation here. It's probably the darkest beer I've ever seen. Smell is of roasted malts and dark chocolate, though not too strong. Taste is big in your face harsh roasted cocoa malts with a strong alcohol flavor. this is a very big beer. Extremely full bodied, not quite syrupy but close. definitely a sipper. not too easy to drink.

overall i wish it had more of a flavor profile. its big, just as i imagined it would be from the bottle artwork, but its not that complex. As a big fan of RIS' i still like this one, but if you arent a fan of the style then stay away as this is a horrible introductory beer to the style. I think i've been spoiled as I've had just about every other world class billed RIS' in the past.
