COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The barrel aging process is a labor intensive endeavour where beer is matured in wood barrels. As the beer ages, the wood imparts unique and complex flavors. The Odell Brewers selected new American Oak barrels for their first offering. The 750ml bottles will be hand-corked, and each bottle will be signed and numbered. After the Oak Aged Ale is bottled, the label and recipe will be retired.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle from Jimbo. Big, dark amber pour. Lots of wood on the nose. Flavor is oak, caramel, vanilla and brown sugar. Some fairly strong heat, but the overall smoothness of the beer tends to mellow things out.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Courtesy of tpd975. Pours deep hazy copper with amber hues and thin tan head. The aroma has firm notes of sweet apricots, cherries, sweet yet grainy hops and some spicy hops to go along with plenty of boozy heat at the end of the draw. The taste is so smooth with rich dark fruitiness with light amounts of muted hoppiness showing up here and there. The age on this has done it well as the rich dark fruitiness blends and mingles very well with the aged hops creating a very pleasing flavor.

BottleÖ Cloudy caramel-colored ale with a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. The bouquet is all about oak and nutty caramel. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and busy carbonation. Caramel sweetness, woody earthiness and low bitterness. Crisp, lingering, toffee finish.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2009
750mL bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy caramel brown with orange coming through when held up to the light. There is plenty of carbonation coming out of the bottle and a huge 3-inch creamy beige head that shows excellent retention and actually leaves a hefty cap throughout. Lacing is light. The oak is really prevalent, surprisingly so, with lots of oaky tannins and vanilla coming through. There are some raisins, molasses, and a big caramel malt sweetness as well. I canít remember a beer smelling so much like wood, clean virgin wood. The sweetness keeps on coming in the taste, but the initial taste is sweet caramel malts and brown sugar. The oak canít be held back for long though and the finish is just full of oaky tannins, vanilla and even a hint of woody spiciness. The mouthfeel is extremely creamy with the wood imparting a wonderful smoothness that turns into a dry spicy feel on the palate. The carbonation is strong which keeps the full body from becoming too heavy. Iím definitely impressed with this beer which is one of the better use of barrels Iíve tried in a while. The fresh oak really makes this one unique and all of the sweetness comes together very well without becoming cloying. Very good.
