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.

RSRIZZO (1868) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Aroma is a rich sour scent with a bold fresh wood note on the end and a hint of vanilla. Color is solid hazy brown with a tall loose head coming off of very active carbonation. Taste is rich and sour. Starting with a medium body it goes down smooth with a bit of a foam like fell. Finish has a bright sour oak taste that carries vanilla, a faint dried fruit taste and a touch of caramel. After taste is a little dry as the sour turns a little more bitter leaving you with a toasted coconut taste lingering for just a bit. This is not a style I am real fond of but this is an amazing well rounded and complex brew. Also at 10.6% ABV. one bottle leaves you feeling good making it almost worth the $25 price tag.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown rusted colored beer with a fully lasting, creamy head of foam. Nose of new oak, vanilla and just the slightest notion of hazelnut and caramel, but it is so light, it’s hardly worth mentioning. I wish those notes were more vibrant, as it would make the nose so much better. Also, because of the use of new oak, it does have some contaminated aromas. I am not saying it is contaminated, but because of the use of new oak, the scents of wildness and funk are easy to notice. Flavor mainly consists of new oak, vanilla and a slight hint of golden raisin and caramel. Disappointed in the lack of complexity, poor finesse and fairly muted flavors. Also, while I love that it is naturally carbonated, the beer is obviously over-carbonated and it shows in the overly bubbly mouth feel. Overall, it’s an okay beer, not something I plan on personally collecting.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 7, 2008
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 (1537) - 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!
