3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
