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.

Bottle:#814. Pours a clear copper with a good size tan head. Aroma of wood,alcohol, and vanilla... smells like curry. Flavor starts nice and woody... ends in a way too sweet alcohol punch. I’m not really digging this one. The $25 price tag probably means I won’t be giving it a second chance either.

750 shared by JCB! Pours a mostly clear amber with a woody hint- and a nice foamy head. Aroma is very woody, but still enjoyable for the most part- intense vanilla, oak with grassy green herbal notes, leather, earth, toasted nuts, caramel and toasted malts- spritzy sharp green alcohol hints too as it warms. Flavor is caramel and buttery malts, tons of sweet oak- vanilla, toast, light char, buttery oak, dry toasted malts, more nuts, fruity esters, and a dry woody finish- and hints of tannic astringency in the back of the throat. Nice.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2009
Very oaky, woody nose on this handsome copper pour. Carbonation is thinnish, body is medium. Unadulterated wood balances out the slightly too-sharp vanilla and booze. Pleasantly deep malty profile and a playfully spicy flavor as the beer warms up a bit. Not quite as complex as you’d like from the style, but certainly an enjoyable beer.

Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks, Jason. Beautiful label, and the poor itself wasn’t so bad either. Clear deep amber/copper pour with small off-white head. Big oak nose, with lots of caramel and vanilla. Woody and a bit sour and tannic. A bit harsh, and one-note to me. I think I liked this less than most of the crew last night.

emacgee (3954) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2009
Thanks JCB for sharing. Pours a copper ruby with a one finger offwhite head. The nose is very oaky, almost bourbon character, tannic, spicy/vanillins, warm alcohol, strong/pungent aroma. The flavor is spicy, warming, mildly bourbony, oaky, nice sharp vanillins, alcohol. Tannic spicy mouthfeel with a warming finish.

Bottle # 840 Shared by JCB! Thx Jason! Muddy brown pour with a fizzy beige head and spotty lace. Big bourbon and oak aroma. Loads of vanilla tannins dark fruit and alcohol. Dry finish

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2009
This one was actually a little disappointing, I had high hopes for it, and while it certainly had some lovely woodiness to it, there just wasn’t enough depth to the flavor for my liking.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle at the Rake, 7th March 2009. Cloudy reddish amber. Heavy palate and lots of alcohol, too much for me, plus a very oak-centric flavour.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Courtesy Morgan from Great Orlando Beer Festival. Pours a dark reddish chestnut color with a foamy, fizzy, beige tinted head. Sticky cobweb lacing coats the glass nicely. The aroma is dripping with vanilla, an obvious trademark of the fresh American oak. Big woody notes work nicely with rich maple and caramel malts, as well as some hazelnuts, dates, and earthy dark fruits. Flavors are again malt focused, rich vanilla and maple coating nutty, fruity elements with sweetness. Mild, earthen spices linger within, lending depth. The palate is what keeps this brew from being really good. Lighter bodied than it should be and very fizzy on the tongue, the mouthfeel just doesn’t fit the style of this rich and malty brew. Tasty, but disappointing overall and drastically overpriced.
