Odell Woodcut No. 07 Russian Imperial Stout

Cellar Selection

The latest release in Odell's Woodcut line is a strong, bold and cellar-worthy selection. Oak aged—like all the Woodcut releases—in new American oak barrels, it opens with intense aromas of bittersweet cocoa powder, roasted malt, charred wood, s'mores, raisin and sweet baking spice. The mouthfeel is full and creamy, with a slight boozy warmth that carries through to the finish. Flavors of roasted cocoa nib, coffee bean, toasted walnut shells, toffee and woody spice are plentiful and immensely attractive, with a grounding fruity core of fig preserves and black currant. This bold selection is absolutely delicious now, but should evolve and develop additional complexities with another year or two of age. Lauren Buzzeo
