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.

Poured a hazy red amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, wood, citrus, toast, dark fruits, and alcohol. Taste of more wood, vanilla, dry tannins, citrus fruit, melon, and a yeasty, somewhat alcoholic finish.

Sampled during Deliriumfest’s Graduation tasting in Maplewood, MN and shared by Deliriumfest. From a 750ml bottle (#1585) pours a semi-hazy brownish amber colored brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a thin film top. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of fruit, vanilla, some roasted nuts and spice. Taste is full bodied, some carbonation with flavors of semi-tart fruit, caramel malt, some oak/vanilla character, a hint of roasted nuts and butter. Finish is semi-sweet with a short lived vanilla and caramel aftertaste.

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.

This bottled brew from a rating party poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and funky. . The mild flavor contained notes of wood and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Light hazed cherry color with light white head and lace. Aroma of sour malt and light apples. Sweet caramel and brown sugar flavor. A medium/light bodied beer. Very nice.

Bottle generously shared at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is big malt, some light brandy, some oxidation, wood, brown sugar, and light vanilla. Flavor astounds for an older BA beer, it’s still maintained a fair amount of goodness: big malt, some fruit, some oak, some vanilla, and hints of brown sugar. Medium in body and still very 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.

emacgee (3958) - 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.
