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.

Tasted in summer 2012 with the Nashville crew. Pours cloudy crimson/orange with an average beige head that leaves even lacing. The nose is more caramel and maple than anything else with vanilla and some cinnamon spice. The flavor is very complex with caramel, maple, cinnamon, prune, vanilla, cola, and some toasty bitterness. The body is medium with average, very smooth carbonation and a long cola, vanilla, cinnamon, and maple finish.

Sampled @ Tucson Gathering courtesy of Flaco Alto. Had a wet sawdust aroma Peanut gallery came up with mahogany colored body with beige head. Flavor of oak wooden barrels with some sweet fruits in the mix. Did have an alcohol burn on the palate. Thanks Sebastian.

Musty Nose & woody, maybe even a slight sweet hint as well...even a touch of strawberry...and the nose grows fruitier and frutier. Beer pours amber/brown with a full sheet of head atop. Thick mouthfeel. Bitterness nice and strong. I sense some licorice notes here as well amongst the other musty, plasticy stuff going on.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Pours dark orange to brown with a medium lived beige head. Smell is sweet and smooth malt with well incorporated bourbon. Taste is oak, lightly bourbony, and malt but very well balanced together. Taste, oaky and bourbon caramelly malty beer. Medium to full body and medium carbonation. Underrated, I think.

Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks, Jason. Beautiful label, and the poor itself wasnt so bad either. Clear deep amber/copper pour with small off-white head. Big oak nose, with lots of caramel and vanilla. Woody and a bit sour and tannic. A bit harsh, and one-note to me. I think I liked this less than most of the crew last night.

Ethereal (2421) - 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.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Tasted 11/15/08. 750ml cork and cage bottle. #477. Hazy and brown hued. Layer of khaki head. Woody aromas with nutty and vanilla undertones. Touch caramel and Kahlua. Full bodied with a bright effervescence. Caramel malts. Big pronounced alcohol note. Nice mix of tart and sour berries and cinnamon cookies. Huge effervescence with a citrus lemon note. Sticky cloying finish and slightly astringent. Toasty woody note. Lotta fruit, both fresh and dried. Sweet and bitter duality. There’s a lot of potential in this one.

Dark amber. Very dynamic. No lacing. Not sure what to think of this. Interesting, but confusing.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Sampled at 2011 RBWG. Bottle from BOLTZ. Pours a hazy amber with thin head. The nose is very oaky, with honey and peppery spice. The taste is malt, spice, vanilla from the barrels and booze. Medium bodied. OK beer.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011
(sampled at RBWG). Pours a hazy caramel color with off-white head. Aroma has a hard candy aspect with an herbal (spearmint?) note. Taste had a nice sweet malt balkbone. Medium bodied and slick texture. For me, the herbal component was distracting.
