Real dark with real tight carbonation. Two-finger tan head. Sharp looking beer. Lots of roast in the aroma, with some coffee. Tastes like its smells - lots of roast with some sweetness underneath that resembles a stout. Real enjoyable beer, and perfect if you can't decide between having a porter or stout. Seems like a hybrid of each.

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a coffee black, with a slight ruby tint when held up to the light. The cream colored head dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves a thin film. Lots of sticky lacing. The beer smells of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. This is a solid tasting porter. It does all of the obvious components well: roasted malts, bitter chocolate, a smokey quality, and there is a slightly sweet addition in there somewhere. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly dry finish.
Overall, this is just a well balanced, solid porter. It looks good, it tastes good, it feels good. Odell do a lot of things well, and their porter is no exception.

12oz bottle poured into New Belgium globe. Pours black with beige head that dissolves to a thin film, not much lacing. Appears a bit oily although not thick.
First smell is espresso grounds, some alcohol comes across and it's only 5%. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted almonds, leather.
Light bodied, medium carbonation but very tasty. Black coffee, raw sugar, slightly metallic. Bitter chocolate on the back end. Peppery bitterness really lingers, slight saltiness. Starts lacing the glass after several sips and increase in temp.
An excellent, very drinkable porter. Personally I'd prefer it a bit thicker but overall this is very good and I wish I had access to Odell in FL. Thanks to ShawnBGP for including it as an extra!
