Mmmmmm deep, rich, warm, hoppy. Pours black woth a creamy, long lasting head and strong but well meaning hops approach. Tjimk IPA mixed with milk stout. maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a dark French roasted coffee color, hoppy nose, palate is like a stout meets a West Coast IPA, caramel/coffee all over the palate, yet a beautiful balance hides the 9.5% ABV, ending with a crisp, hoppy, deep roasted malty finish. This beer is stout meets DIPA. Outstanding! Chuckerdoo (8) - - OCT 4, 2015 does not count
Great balance of hoppy and malty on the aroma and flavor. Pretty complex beer, a lot going on there. This would rock with a hot pizza with spicy fennel sausage and black olives! sudsmeister (78) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bt the time I got this 4 pack of 12 ouncers home, they were at a great temperature to drink (50ish). It poured a thick opaque with big head which settled slowly. The first thing to jump out was the cocoa, then the hops; an interesting one-two punch that was very enjoyable. The alcohol was well hidden. I hope to pick up another 4 pack before it’s gone for the season. Great stuff! ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Dark brown with a medium head and a medium body. Aroma of pine, some toasted bread, and some lemon. Flavor favors the hops, but there is still a notable chocolatelyness that rounds out the beer.

Almost as good as Stone's More Brown Than Black. Hoppy yet malty; malty yet hoppy. Great flavor with just a nice tinge of bitterness. Home run!

Extremely dark brown, light cream head. Aroma of cream, malted milk shake really, light high notes of orange citrus. Drinks with a smooth creamy medium body, high bright citrus hops with delicious chocolatey malt, banana and bubblegum background, very light yeasty bread on the finish. sudsnbudsMN (5) - Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2013 does not count
Crack a bottle again for the first time...
I figure that I have drank my share of Odell 4-packs but I receive a generous gift and decided to hoard all four. He’s the lowdown:
A-Righteously bright, for a dark brew. A mellow wake-up.
T-Smooth as french silk pie. Pairs very well with sweet, chocolatey desserts.
O-I struggle to find a downfall in this beer, no surprise. Almost makes a guy wanna move to Colorado! Try a 2pull of Indeed Brewing’s Midnight Rider and Day Tripper if you can’t get your hands on a Mountain Standard.

Tap. Black color with tan white head. Subtle pleasing aroma. Smooth at first then perfect balance of sweet malty and alcohol. Excellent. uhclem (429) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
The best DIPA (or any IPA, so far) that I have had. This is a sumptuous, opulent ale that starts with a light pine and citrus nose, develops into a near-perfect blend of malt and hops and finishes hoppy and leaves the mouth begging for more. Hard to believe the ABV, it is so well-hidden. Drink this. Drink it now.
