Ink-black body with a thin yet creamy, lasting, light tan head. Sweet smell with touches of figs and cherries; mild hint of chocolate. Boozy, bitter flavor with roasted grains and chocolate notes; mild edge of oak woodiness. Heavy body, chewy, slightly coarse mouthfeel.

A better than average RIS that really shines with the depth and breadth of flavors.

Corked and caged 750mL bottle from beership.com. No bottling date but some quick research revealed that it was released in October 2013, making this about a year old. Served in a goblet.

A hearty pour yields an oil black body with almost trhree full fingers of deep tan head. Maintains a thin layer but leaves only smalls spots of lace.

Slight oxidation on the nose along with some vineous dark fruit, mild cocoa and a little semi sour barrel funk.

Thankfully the funk from the aroma does not carry over to the taste. The flavors are well rounded with fudgey dark chocolate, mild charred oak, espresso, vague toasted nuts, a hint of fruit skins, bitter earthyness, ocassional wisps of vanilla and a hearty backbone of alcohol. The oak aging adds an interesting dimention on top of the standard Russian imperial stout notes. Not quite as sweet or boozey as spirit barrel aging, the new American oak adds more earthy, woodsy and nutty elements.

Creamy, moderately full feel with soft-yet-present carbonation. The lasting finish is bittersweet with bakers cocoa, caramel, scorched earth and a little oxidation.

Being on the East coast I don't have much opportunity to try Odell's offerings but this is some solid stuff. Certainly a healthy notch above the average Russian imperial stout but not quite to the top tier.
