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.

Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Shared by Boltz at RBWG. I have a numerical rating, but my notes are un-readable so Im borrowing a bit with this one. This one pours a murky crimson/chestnut color with a small eggshell head that left a bit of lacing. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, citrus, oak, and dark fruit. Flavor has notes of wood, vanilla, honey, buttermilk biscuit, plum, raisin, and bourbon. Just a touch of alcohol still noticeable. Holding up nicely!

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle shared during AZRBWG courtesy of BOLTZ7555. Pour is deep hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, butterscotch, oak, apple, pear, and light herbal notes. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of toasted coconut and vanilla. Seems to be holding up fairly well.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours cloudy, dark caramelly brown with a huge off white head, good lace. Smells sweet of caramel and vanilla with a good bit of wood character and some alcohol. Tastes sweet and caramelly malty with lots of sweet wood. Quite a bit of fruit as well, dark and ripe sweet. Very malty. Full body, over carbonated in general which ends up being pretty distracting from the beer in general.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
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.
