Poured a hazy amber color, minimal head. Aromas of sweet malt, wood and vanilla. Medium bodied, drinkable and slightly tart on the palate, with flavors of wood, brown sugar and vanilla, with a sweet candy-like finish.

Growler from brewery. Pours hazy amber brown, with a medium beige head, very fine clinging lacing. Aromas of dates, vanilla, caramel, bourbon and grass. Medium body, crisp, smooth. Mildly sweet, a little sour, with a mild bitter finish. Nicely balanced, well-rounded, drinkable brew. notalush (5955) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Tap at Odell - hazy copper, faint but sticky lace - aroma is of strong, spicy oak, vanilla, a touch of bourbon, brown sugar, faint fruity tartness - in flavor, much of the original beers is swallowed up from the woodcut barrel, but it still manages to be fairly light - oak, vanilla - moderate tartness - a bit of cherry - a touch of the original malt profile on the back end - finishes a little watery, but otherwise interesting.
