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.

A: The pour is a dark amber color with a fluffy, yet sturdy, off-white head on top. S: Despite the very noticeable presence of oak in this beer, there is a really pleasant sweetness to the aroma. I pick up a fair amount of honey and perhaps some maple as well, along with some caramel and vanilla. T: The oak is a bit more aggressive in terms of the flavor. That said, the sweet honey and maple flavors come through and mesh well with the vanilla from the oak and some hints of dark fruits. M: A medium bodied beer with perhaps a bit too much carbonation and a slightly tannic finish. D: This is the only one of the Woodcuts that I’ve really liked so far. Though the oak is pronounced, it does not completely dominate the flavor or aromas.

Ratman197 (11364) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2008
750 ml corked and caged bottle #960 poured a clear brown with a large lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, oak, vanilla, dark fruit and some roastiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of BIG OAK, vanilla, carmel, roastiness and light fruittiness with a smooth dry lingering woody finish.

This beer should age well, but is not worth the price so I’ll probably never know.

BeerandBlues2 (10831) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 15, 2008
750 mL bottle. Pours cloudy tawny with a large, frothy, light brown head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt -cookie, caramel, toffee-, average hops -flowers, perfume-, average yeast -dough, leaves- with notes of alcohol, dates, apples, wood, and vanilla. Full bodied, sticky and alcoholic texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Thanks doodler! Pours a dark reddish appearance with a tan head. Vanilla, coconut, orange citrus, caramel aroma. Quite a bit of oak in the flavor. Lots of vanilla, grainy wood flavors. Light citrus and caramel. Not all that oxidized. Plenty of oak.

hopscotch (10130) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle… 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.
