Poured into a Nonic pint glass two weeks before the best by date.
A - Pours dark chocolate brown - nearly black, opaque with two finger khaki head. As the head recedes it leaves creamy lacing along the sides and thins to a creamy thick 1/4 inch head with in minutes.
S - Pleasant floral hop aroma dominates. Roasted malt goodness is detectable, but the american hop profile is the star.
T - A wonderful balance of american hop (floral/citrus) and chocolate and caramel malts. A Few drinks in the 9.5% alcohol begins to peak out, but not in an entirely unpleasant way - more warming sensation with the roasted malts.
M - Comfortably in the medium body range with creamy texture and a slight bite of hops, well balanced mouthfeel with a lingering creamy coating on the tongue.
O - One of the better beers I've had recently and certainly a top contender for the Odell brews. I bought this because I've always been happy with the Odell stuff and this certainly has not let me down. This is the first I've tried Double Black IPA and I hope all other examples are equally delicious in this style.
