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.

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.

750ml Corked and caged. Bottle #1972. Pours a murky brown almost purple with a large 3 finger airy off white head. Aromas aren’t very strong at all but I do get a lot of booze, some plum, raisins, cherry, and caramel malts. Flavors of pretty much the same heavier on the booze, raisins, and there is some oak there as well. Palate is too fizzy and carbonated for my liking. Glad I got to try it but not happy I spent $25 on it. Ahh well, maybe the next one will be better.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 750ml bottle-pours a foamy light tan head and red color with some brown tint. Aroma is wood-oak, spice, vanilla, boozy-bourbon. Taste is bourbon, dark fruit, wood-oak, spice, vanilla. Yes almond -after reading the label. Occasional as not my taste but nice sipping. Thanks bitterbill & jwc215 for trading this.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle at the Rake, 7th March 2009. Cloudy reddish amber. Heavy palate and lots of alcohol, too much for me, plus a very oak-centric flavour.

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.

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.

Ernest (6181) - 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.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Bottle:#814. Pours a clear copper with a good size tan head. Aroma of wood,alcohol, and vanilla... smells like curry. Flavor starts nice and woody... ends in a way too sweet alcohol punch. I’m not really digging this one. The $25 price tag probably means I won’t be giving it a second chance either.
