COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Odell Woodcut No. 2 , an oak aged golden ale, was brewed over six months ago on the brewery’s pilot brewing system. The golden ale has been aging in virgin oak barrels and will bottle condition in cork finish, 750 ml bottles. Crafted with fine specialty malts and hops, Woodcut No. 2 is a golden copper color. The rich toffee-like malt character is balanced by soft tannins. Freshly cut wood and vanilla bean aromas compliment the beer’s smooth finish.

Tasted in summer 2012 with the Nashville crew. Pours cloudy, bright orange with an average white head that leaves average lace. The nose is sweet caramel, maple, vanilla, candied orange peel, and some aged hops aroma. The flavor is the same, focused on the sweet malt and barrel treatment, with some coconut added. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long sweet caramel, maple, vanilla, and coconut finish.

Poured from a 750ml bottle, this is a surprise. I thought that this would be an oxidized mess. The aroma is sweet, toffee, soft hops character, prune, sweet fruity alcohol. The flavor is sweet malts, fruity alcohol, raisin, toffee, earthy, fruity hops. I am impressed with how well this bottle has held up.

more from the cellar. fuck, i know i have notes on this from years ago. i even recall cursing the cost of these bottles...anyway...dark orange hued amber body with minimal head. smells of booze and pears. flavor is well...shockingly sweet....lots of vanilla...lot of "oakeyness(sp)" christwagons this is thick. one of the definitions of vinous fuckers. very hot, even after all this time. really thick, and not a whole lot of pleasant flavors blended together. hate to say this, but if this needs more time at this point than this is just not a good beer.

This is a pretty solid, very complex ale. Golden, crisp, lots of dark fruits, grassy hops, earthiness, and some port.

750 ml bottle shared at a tasting. Pours a clear dark golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had a nice caramel malt, vanilla, oak, light citrus with the tannins coming in at the finish. Very smooth and easy to drink with the abv not being much of an issue. I have mostly enjoyed this entire line of beers.

Bottle 3950, aged 3.5 years. You can’t have your cake and eat it too, no? Nowhere near the "pop" as no. 1. Deep copper pour with a flimsy tan head. Not much carbonation at all. Candy and malt dominate the nose and mouth, oaky feel about this ale. Finishes sweet and warming.

crosamich (431) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - SEP 21, 2012
The sweetest and most oak character of the woodcut series to me. Opens with no pop, very little carbonation and no head. plenty of barrel here, slight brown sugar & raisin, tannins with a bit of a syrupy mouthfeel. Some vanilla but not as strong as other in the series.

brokensail (9940) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
The pour is a light amber color with a finger of off-white, almost khaki, head. As with all the Woodcut series, a very heavy oak aroma. Lots of sweet caramel malt and golden raisin fruitiness. There’s a hint of vanilla, some apple, and a touch of citrus. The flavor is on the sweet side with caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and vanilla. A pleasant fruitiness of raisin, pears, and apples. Light citrus peel and quite a strong dose of oak.

Hazy amber beer, not much of a head. Soft silky palate, low carbonation. Smooth semi sweet vanilla oak gives way to creamy fruits - with orange leading the pack. Finishes soft and creamy. Drinks well below 11.0%! Lovely!

bottle 3076 Orange copper color. Lots of vanilla, oak, lychee, and carmel in the nose. Taste follows nose. Just like a lighter barleywine. One the sweet side. strength is palate. Lots of oak and vanilla. Quite coating but quite oak dry finish. Low carbonation and in and out of mid to heavy body. Good stuff. Slow sipper but good stuff
