Thor's Equinox was not one of Odin's grander efforts. While it poured nicely and drank easily enough, I was expecting more body and nose in a Belgian dark. It's thinness, bland fruit qualities and lack of character in the mouthfeel made this beer very blasé unnecessarily. I have enjoyed Odin's other offerings, but will not be buying this one again for a while.

This is absolutely my favorite beer. I'm not a huge lover of hops, and this really disguises the hop flavor well and gives it an amazing chocolaty (not coffee) flavor that i just cant help but gulp down.

Poured from 22oz. bottle into Belgian style tulip glass.

Appearance: Dark reddish brown. Fairly cloudy. Slight head that dissipated quickly. Moderate lacing.
Smell: Sweet and very malty, slight booze smell. Hint of chocolate
Taste: Lighter tasting than expected. Slightly sweet, malty and hint of bitterness. Balanced. Bitterness lingers. Slight booze taste, maybe chocolate too.
Mouthfeel: Lighter feeling than expected. Carbonation may be slightly overpowering. Smooth mouthfeel overall.
Overall: Lighter than expected but a good all around beer. Nothing too aggressive or crazy. Definitely can't tell the ABV is so high. Good flavors and good mouthfeel. Cool name.

Good red ale. Smell a bit metallic and taste has the same. As others have mentioned, perhaps just the Belgian influence. If you like that, then a great dark ale, for me, just a nice beer.

For a dark high abv this was weak and dull tasting with flat feel and taste. It had the dark notes but had that watered down taste and flavor.
