Pours a thin deep dark brown with a generous tan cap. Very good retention and great lacing. Aroma is a little muted, dark malts, some coffee and cocoa. Flavor is more pronounced with the barrel up front. Sweet brown sugar and rum, chocolate and coffee. Feel is medium bodied, smooth and adequately carbonated. Overall fantastic.

a delicious imperial stout with coffee aged in a mix of rum and bourbon barrels. odell always kills it with the big dark beers, and they have done an awesome job with this one too. the coffee is striking in the nose, especially in the absence of the sweetness i expected both from the malts and the rum barrels, its mostly just coffee with a little oak, mellower than i thought it would be, but the coffee has a ton of nuance, cocoa up front and some low acid bitterness as well, way more pungent in the smell than it is in the taste. the barrels really lead the way in taste, whiskey before rum for sure, but both are there, a light molasses note is cool with the bitter roast and coffee, and there is some obvious vanilla from the whiskey side, but this isnt sweet, instead its dry like cocoa powder, has more barrel char bitterness than residual sugar, and really is a different type of barrel aged stout, oddly drinkable too. there is some alcohol to this as it warms, but i want that in a beer like this, and its not out of place. the coffee works into the deep malt base well, and all the wood smooths this out incredibly well. somewhat subdued on the barrel flavor overall, but an expert beer thats stout first. awesome to find this on draft at taphouse downtown, an excellent and distinct brew, perfect for the winter, which has just set in here. loved it!

Released October 2019; drank 11/14/19 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE tan head; strong, frothy lace.

Light roast coffee bean, chocolate syrup, mild coconut, mild oak & faint booze heat notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Light roast coffee bean & chocolate syrup flavors up front; oak, coconut & mild booze heat notes on the finish.

A lot going on, but fairly easy to enjoy. A bit thin, perhaps, but I'd have another.

Got some good Christmas music going.

Cellar series, "a reward of hidden bliss awaits the intrepid explorer whose liquid journey brings them to Barreled Treasure. An imperial stout aged in both bourbon and rum barrels and awakened with a hefty dose of coffee."

Deep dark black but not the blackest, with a red-pink head of 1/2 finger that sticks around for awhile and gradually recedes to a thick frothy ring.

Aromas of huge coffee beans, peppery and hot, some antiseptic, rum, and spices. Slight cocoa.

Flavor is full of coffee and rum barrel. Not much sweetness in the way of chocolate/caramel/etc, but it's like adding brandy to your coffee on a cold winter's morning. They did well to release it at this time. Peppery and hot, just like the aroma. Some slight molasses/anise, perhaps a touch of citrus. Heavy black licorice and piney bitterness fades it out.

Feel is cutting and hot. Not particularly thick but definitely on point for the style. Slick and sticky. Lots of boozy burn.

Overall pretty good but not fantastic. Not as good as their typical $9 bottles you find. About right for a $16 4 pack though.

Odell Barreled Treasure Imperial Stout, 11% ABV. Pours black with a one-finger brown head. Nose is rum, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Taste follows, with rum and coffee prevalent, and a slight bitter close. Excellent mouthfeel, overall outstanding. I'm really liking this.

bottled poured into tulip

A: solid black body and a thin dark tan head with low retention that laces the glass as it settles into a foamy halo
S: rich coffee bean with sweet hint of booze, sticky molasses and chocolate mixed roasted malts, deep caramel, stone fruit, vanilla bean and rich earthy wooden notes that bring thoughts of leather and tobacco.
T: follows the nose, with very little booze heat left on the tongue. coffee front and center, bourbon and rum booze tang follow with chocolate and sweet caramel malty molasses and vanilla bean. lush stone fruit kick in and fizzles into a bittersweet coffee bean once more.
F: medium carbonation, heavy bodied. mostly lush front with a crisp dry finish left on the tongue

Overall (personal opinion):
a coffee forward stout with plenty of sweet to counterbalance the bitter and booze. rich in flavor. looking forward to seeing how this one matures after cellaring
