I got this in the most recent black booty BIF. The pour is obsidian black, medium white head. The aroma has some oak, vinous notes, barnyard qualities. The beer is sweet, pineapple and fruity notes, oak, light sour notes. The finish is dry. The body is medium, good carbonation, no hint of alcohol. A tasty beer, not as "sour" as I was expecting.

From a 750 ml into a tulip.

A-The bottle opened with a pretty significant pop of the cork, but the beer (thankfully) didn't gush on me. Still, this brew proved difficult to pour without massive amounts of foam. Once things settled a bit, I was looking at a dark, dark brown beer that was nearly opaque. Just a slight hint of red. The foam was mocha-colored.

S-The beer gave off a funky, earthy, tart aroma of oak, vanilla, cherries, and a little brett. Fair amount of wood here.

T-The taste was earthy, mild malts combined with oak, leather, vanilla, raisin, and a touch of tart cherry. The alcohol was well-integrated and a bit herbal in character.

M-The beer was pretty smooth drinking and medium in body. Carbonation was noticeable, but not dominant.

O-I liked this brew. It was a unique combination of flavors and feel with little bits of brown ale, quad, and american wild ale all mixed together. Fortunately, I think the combination worked out to produce a tasty beer.

750ml bottle into glass tulip.
55°F

A: Deep brown body with garnet edges topped with a thick creamy head of moderate retention that leaves little lacing, and a thin creamy cover.

S: Chocolate and coffee notes with just a hint of funk. Little hop character. Very intriguing.

T: The funk is more forward on the palate, but very subtle. The malt is subdued but lends an unassuming sweetness and coffee character. The booze is unmistakable, and probably a bit too strong, but would probably mellow with age.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation. Very smooth. Almost perfect.

D: A bit too boozy to be highly drinkable, but the flavor profile works great. This would compliment a juicy steak like a dream.

O: Fantastic beer. Best offering I have tasted from Odell. I plan to put some of this away to see how it ages.
