Notes/Commercial Description:
Rich, dark, and roasty. That was the concept Bell’s beer guru John Mallett aimed for and, true to John’s vision, Maillard’s Odyssey is exactly that. Its name honors the Maillard reaction—the “browning” of sugars and amino acids—that creates the wonderful caramelized toffee-like and roasted flavors so abundant in this beer.

Bell’s has done a lot to raise the Midwest’s craft beer bona fides. They are masters of many beer styles from their portfolio of top-notch American stouts all the way through to the alpha acid assault of their Hopslam Ale. Bell’s constantly reinvents beer styles and refines recipes with artful mastery and an oddball slant.

bottled back in May. one of a few stragglers I have from my case of Beer Camp brews.

A: pours a fairly dark brown with a dark coffee hued head.

S: dark caramel, heavy roast, and light coffee smell.

T: similar to the aroma, but a lot more sweetness. drinks like a fairly sweet and malty brew. dry chocolate flavor. the coffee aroma is dissipated for more roasted characteristics.

M: drinks fairly slick from the lower carb and roasty flavor.

D: overally, a good drinking malty, sweet ale. I am glad I hung onto this bottle for so long as this is the sipper for the colder months of right now versus the warm summer months when this variety pack came out.
