Woodcut No. 7October 31, 2013
Odell Brewing Co.
Fort Collins, CO
Style: Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout
Review: Woodcut No. 7 pours like black silk with a true brown head. Smell is complex with soy sauce, wheat toast and the usual coffee and chocolate suspects. Mouthfeel is viscous. This is the complete package with all the flavors you would expect from a Russian imperial stout, with a slight alcohol but a wonderful soft, round finish—probably coming from the new oak. Just like with all of Odell’s beer, it is exciting to open and experience and we are always fighting over the extra, if there is any!
