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.

Bottle: Poured a reddish color with a nice white head. The aroma was dark fruits, vanilla, oak and malt. The flavor was smooth, with oak, vanilla, nuts, beets, raisins and a finish with a nice dry aftertaste from the oak. Overall, an excellent beer. I think Old Ales are climbing the charts in my book.

light orange red with a strong tall big white yellow head.nice woody note that has a pear scent almost belgian like powdery powdery raisin plum.strongly effervescent. it may be the guys iím sharing this with, but there is a definite odor in the air, likely from their rank asses. the lighter fruit notes mix well with a vanilla component . i get a touch of blueberry as i watch steve come in out of consciousness. a beer with a lot of depth, and alcohol, that may be responsible for me exposing myself. i am surprised at how dry this, and at how loudly these two jackasses snore. thanks for hanging out steve, & matt, i canít believe matts dad is such a nice guy, what happened to matt? 4 8 8 4 18

bottle from jason at rbwg 3/5/11. hazy orange... actually cloudy since i went back for seconds near the end of the bottle. minimal ow head. the flavor and aroma are pack with green wood!... mixed with honey, cooked orange, herbs, flowers, caramel and vanilla. it is really rich but not too sweet. spiciness and green help out tremendously. this is perfectly melded and aging wonderfully.8/4/8/4/17++

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.

750ml bottle #1016. Very dark brown pour. Woody, malty, dark fruit aroma, it’s got alot going on in there. Slightly acidic initially, and a little sweet, then smooths out into something very, very good. Nice and warming, and very good.

Bottle shared at the UFC 100 gathering, sorry I forgot who broght this one but Iím thninking RIch or his buddy. First let me say I love me some Old Ales, what a great style. Poured a murky brown with a great full creamy tan head. Aroma is awesome and comlex as an Old Ale should be with notes of wood, coconut, cherry, vanilla, toast and slight alcohol. Body on this one was creamy with slight alcohol warming and softer carbonation, nice. Flavor had lots of sherry notes, wood, and alcohol. This was some really nice stuff.

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 from Jimbo. Big, dark amber pour. Lots of wood on the nose. Flavor is oak, caramel, vanilla and brown sugar. Some fairly strong heat, but the overall smoothness of the beer tends to mellow things out.
