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.

Pour out of 750 ml botte, thanks Scott! Hazy orange red with off white head, aroma is dough, grass, dark berry, hints of grain, caramel, hints of grain. Taste is a mix of nice grass, grain, hints of yeast, bread, hints of grain, finishing bitter, dry.

3fourths (8637) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2008
High carbonation, huge growing tan head, cola-sized bubbles. Nose is mellow bourbon, maple, dry wood, sweet pipe tobacco, somewhat muddled by a minerally yeast, acidic and sharp up the nostrils. Body is somewhat flabby and disorganized up front, carbonation is overdone and uneven, with the mineral-heavy yeast. The bourbon and wood is mellow and just a bit fruity - some sort of dried, bourbon-glazed apples or pears. Nice flavor and decent warming, but muddled by the sharp, slightly acidic and minerally yeast. Lingering vanilla syrup flavor overtakes the olfactory senses, I can’t get rid of it. Lingering vanilla syrup flavor overtakes the olfactory senses, I end up huffing it for a few minutes after I’m finished. Can’t get rid of it.

Bottle courtesy of RidleyBrewery. Bottle # 853, date of 8/15/08. Pours dark brown. Aroma is oaky and sweet. Taste, roasted, some sweetness with some vanilla. Thick on the palate, filled with rich fruity flavors as well as caramel malts. I did not get to try enough to write a more complete review. A good brew, heavy on the taste, with good lacohol presence.

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.

Bottle thanks to the RBWG crew. Pours a cloudy copper color with a beige head. A smooth dusty caramel nose, some herbal notes and oak. A smooth, somewhat hot flavor of oak, caramel, dusty dry malts, light sweet fruit. Very nice.

Ernest (6748) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Bottle #1980. Head is initially average sized, fizzy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, nuts), with notes of raw wood, alcohol, vanilla, hint of nectarine. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lighlty to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Well, it’s not bad, but it sure leaves a lot to be desired, especially based on the remarkably inflated price ($25 right here where the brewery is). I expect new oak barrels are pretty expensive, but is the final product worth it? Not so much. Aroma can be summed up as four main things: caramel, wood (and lots of it), alcohol, and vanilla. Pretty straightforward and unexciting.

Murky caramel color/ tan head. Toasted caramel, vanilla, wood, spicy aromas. Big sweet bourbon vanilla, toffee, spicy caramel flavors--good.
