3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Amber color. off white head. Toasty and pleasant aroma. Taste is earthy and burnt, with notes of wood and nut. Not sweet really at all. Warming alcohol finishes the beer leaving burnt notes left on the tongue. Drier finish. I must mention it is a cold rainy/snowy day in Boulder and I am skipping class.

Rock steady! This beer is excellent. Pours copper amber in color. A head peeks out only after I throw the beer in the glass. A ring is left to reside the duration. Aromas of glazed, mildly spiced cake bread. Nice! Medium full body with superb carbonation. Good aroma to flavor carryover yielding a bit a sweetness that is simultaneously cleansed by the defined hop profile. Nice spice and cake bread intermingling with noticeable roasted chestnut and cockleshells. The finish is bittered nicely creating a truly wonderful beer. A nice addition to the winter lineup here in AZ.

Odell beers are usually hit or miss for me - either they are awesome, or they wind up being boring - unfortunately, this one is an example of the later - very malty - thatís about all I can say - the malts lack a lot of character, and register on my palate as just straight up sweetness - there is a slight toasted grain character, maybe a little bit of toffee - a little bit of warmth on the tail end, with lingering toasted grains - out of Odellís boring beers, this is one of the better ones, but still...blah.

I missed this one last year so I bought some as soon as I saw it. It has a nice caramel-red color with a bubbly malty, sweet cereal smell. Nice big mouthfeel, taste is weird, malty, malty, malty. Coats the tongue really well, some mild spice in the back.Canít really detect hops in this one.

The best part about winter is the seasonal brews!! Pours a deep amber with little to no off white head. Nice spicy, hoppy nose. The flavor was hoppy, spicy, malty wintery goodness. Great brew!!!

Tap at the brewery. Pours a light golden amber with a nice off white head. Aromas of caramel, malt, and a bit of fruitiness. Flavors are sweet malt, fruits, and a decent hop finish. Medium bodied. I used to really like this beer, but either I or the beer have changed.
