Tap at Odell - hazy copper, faint but sticky lace - aroma is of strong, spicy oak, vanilla, a touch of bourbon, brown sugar, faint fruity tartness - in flavor, much of the original beers is swallowed up from the woodcut barrel, but it still manages to be fairly light - oak, vanilla - moderate tartness - a bit of cherry - a touch of the original malt profile on the back end - finishes a little watery, but otherwise interesting.
