12 ounce bottle carefully poured into my Schlafly tulip.
A - Pours a very dark, opaque, black/brown with a nice, frothy, off-white 1 1/2 finger head. Dissipated slowly and left a 1/4" cap throughout. Nice lacing on the way down. Beautifully dark red hue when held up to light.
S - Very complex blend of American hops and malt backbone. You get the piney, fruity, citrusy aromas of a DIPA, but also the beautiful toasted and chocolately aromas from the dark malts. A wonderfully smelling brew.
T & M - Same as the taste - complex, smooth, nicely hopped but not bitter. Malt backbone is very apparent and shines through loud and clear. 9.5% alcohol is well hidden, even as it warms.
Overall - I haven't been disappointed with O'Dell yet, and this is yet another notch in their belt. Along with Myrcenary, they brew 2 of my all-time favorite beers. Highly recommended.
