cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy deep amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is a dusty peat malt. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt and light herbal hops. Medium body. A decent beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Pours a deep amber color with a very small reamy white head which did not hang around very long. There really isn’t much in the way of aroma. Smells of bread and perhaps a touch of alcohol. There really wasn’t much in the way of flavor. It was served so cold I couldn’t really pick much up. Will need to revisit this beer at a later time. What I did pick up on was all rather light with very mild flavors of nuts and toffee. Really not much else going on here. Overall, this isn’t really anything too exciting. Very middle of the road for craft beer.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Pours amber with off-white head that is generous in size and retains rather well. Nose is soft with some toasty aromas and light caramel. Easygoing and appetizing aroma. More caramel and toasty flavors on the palate with less than average hopping for a winter warmer. Light to medium bodied and very, very drinkable.

rader58 (809) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Pours a clear dark copper. Aroma of cherries, toasted malt and brown sugar. lively and surprisingly hoppy. Nice malt balance and sweet finish.

12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Copper with lasting flat head and lace. Toasted brown sugar caramel aroma. Toasted brown sugar with mild ripe fruit and English style bitter clean finish. Nice mouthfeel. Very good.

BOLTZ7555 (2879) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Decent little beer with tons of spice and brown sugar...copper colored pour with a minimal white head. Medium to light on the palate and highly drinkable.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 9, 2009
on tap 10/29 at papago... pours a dark shade of coppery-reddish-brown with a clingy soapy white head. it smells a lot like spiced toffee... caramel, grain sweetness, earthy hops and some toasty nuts. the flavor is pretty much the same... along with some slight toasted nuts, pine and a dry spicy hopped finish. the body is medium while the palate is fairly dry. the combination makes this beer easy to put away. 7/3/7/4/15/3.6

bottle. amber pour with thin frothy tan head. lacing. rich malty, nutty aroma. moderated body. nutty, a bit of wet cardboard, light spice and bready.

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle poured deep amber in color with pretty much no head at all. Aroma is butterscotch, bread, oak, and floral hops. Flavor shows toffee, earth, and a touch of alcohol. Pretty mediocre unless your a huge fan of Odell i guess.
