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.

Hand signed and numbered bottle. Shared in a tasting with my crew. A farly dark pour with a 1/4 inch head. Beautiful sweet and sour armoa. Brown sugar and red wine in the nose. Flavors of sour grapes, oak, and sugar. Perfect viscosity, and overall one of the best beers I have ever had. I really hope Odell makes this one more time.

Rusty (1533) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Shared by Boltz at RBWG. I have a numerical rating, but my notes are un-readable so Iím borrowing a bit with this one. This one pours a murky crimson/chestnut color with a small eggshell head that left a bit of lacing. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, citrus, oak, and dark fruit. Flavor has notes of wood, vanilla, honey, buttermilk biscuit, plum, raisin, and bourbon. Just a touch of alcohol still noticeable. Holding up nicely!

Bottle shared during AZRBWG courtesy of BOLTZ7555. Pour is deep hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, butterscotch, oak, apple, pear, and light herbal notes. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of toasted coconut and vanilla. Seems to be holding up fairly well.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours cloudy, dark caramelly brown with a huge off white head, good lace. Smells sweet of caramel and vanilla with a good bit of wood character and some alcohol. Tastes sweet and caramelly malty with lots of sweet wood. Quite a bit of fruit as well, dark and ripe sweet. Very malty. Full body, over carbonated in general which ends up being pretty distracting from the beer in general.

MeadMe (1243) - Riverview, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Traded for this one a couple years ago it seems. A: Pours a brownish hue with a nice tanish white head. Nice retention and some lace. S: Aromas of caramel and brown sugar. Light dark fruit notes with a nice fresh cut oak. T: Nice caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Hints of cherry and more mild dark fruits. Nice oak, vanilla, and light booze from the barrel. M: Fairly full in body, smooth, nice.

Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2008
750ml bottle - number 44 dated 8/15/08. Pours a hazy dark amber with a huge fizzy big bubbled off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is a little subdued - sweet caramel and molasses, some fruit (apples and raisin), wood, and alcohol.

The flavor is sweet caramel, molasses, vanilla, and a little fruitiness with some grassy hops and alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with sharp carbonation that mellows as it sits.

Overall, an interesting outing from Odell. It’s a bit pricey ($25) and a bit one dimensional with sweet caramel and wood.
