Really interesting beer...love what Odellís has been doing lately. Dark coffee pour with a creamy eggshell head that left a nice amount of webbing inside the glass. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, and light peach. Peach is also present in the flavor...subtle and fruity. Wish it was a bit more aggressive because I think it would play well off of the chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle from dionysus! Brown pour, tan head. Peaches, oranges, cocoa, light roast, pumpernickel bread. Flavor is lightly tart, flavors of light chocolate, peach, orange, tea. Very unique and very good.

750 ml. bottle. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a medium, lasting beige head, with light lacing, and great legs, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 35) body....nose is light coffee, bit of chocolate, light fruit, with light chemical rubber notes....taste is sweet malts with a bit of toffee/caramel, bit of coffee, some light fruit tones on the finish with light sour, barnyard notes, and a bit of oak....mouth feel is light, carbonation adds heavy foam. If I hadnít been told, I would not be able to identify the unique additions. The malts are light for an Imperial Porter, the peach and wood well hidden,with the wild yeast hard to find. But although light for the style it comes together reasonably well in spite of the rather eclectic ingredients. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

This is different! Very dark. Leather and wood in the nose, with a very slight acidyness and roastyness. Silk like smoothness. Well blended mellow sweet and sour. Has a tempered peach like finish. No noticable alcohol. A gentle blend of flavors. I like it.

Bottle pours deep brown with a khaki head. Aroma smells as if you rolled a tart peach in cocoa powder and coffee. There is also an additional underlying roastiness as well as a touch of tobacco. When it comes to the taste, the peach is a lot more subtle and lends nice undertones to the classic roastiness of the porter. Whatís interesting is the fact that the peaches not only lend sweet fruitiness to the front palate, but also tart acidity on the finish. This probably wonít be everyoneís cup of tea but Iím definately digging it. Something tells me that itís only going to get better with age.

Beaver (1296) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin bubbly collar.

The aroma is roasted chocolate malts and tobacco with tart, acidic, sour peaches.

The flavor is roasted chocolate malts and some coffee quickly followed by some acidic tart peaches and then a big roasted bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, itís a very different mix with the big porter notes and the acidic sour peaches. Itís very interesting...still canít tell if I like it or not. As it warms, the flavors mellow a little and blend better and a little brett comes out.

Peachy! Eating a ripe Palisade peach is a wonderful thing and somehow Odell has captured this within the roasty, malty porter. The yeast adds a bit of sourness and freshness to the peach. To me this really works. Even the long linger is complex, light and refreshing on the hard palate and intense and dark in the throat. Wow.

Nice roasty nose with a hint of brett and peach. Well-rounded medium body. Pours black with only a slight head. Complex combination of flavors, with mild peach flavor and light brett. Great roast character. Not astringent and not hot at all at 9.5. Canít wait until this one ages a bit. Hopefully some tart character will begin to shine through.

Very interesting concept, but I was concerned it might have too many components. Pours dark, with some light getting through the edges. Good carbonation, head, and retention. The aroma is chocolatey, but with a hint of brett sourness in the mix. Taste is quite balanced, chocolate, caramel, and a fruity sourness that somehow works very well. Hint of peaches, but not too sweet. Impressive new beer from Odellís.

Firkin and the brewery - this batch was apparently aged with brett, though you canít taste it - on paper, this beer should not work - imperial porter with peaches and brett? - the reality isnít so hot, either - first of all, I taste a fair amount of diacetyl - flabby body - sugary sweet, but the peach adds an odd acidity - oddly enough, though, you canít really taste the peach, either - the style of beer is too much for the peach to power through - kind of messy.
