Odell Amuste: A Harmonic Fusion

Odell Amuste, an Imperial Porter by Odell Brewing, offers a unique blend of flavors with an intriguing twist. Aged in oak wine barrels and infused with juice from Tempranillo grapes grown on the Western Slope of Colorado, this beer-wine hybrid claims to be a must-try.

Pouring Perfection

The appearance of Odell Amuste doesn’t disappoint. As it gracefully pours into a goblet, a rich brown hue dominates, crowned by a thin yet tightly knit beige cap.

A Symphony of Scents

The aroma of this imperial porter is a delightful medley of dark chocolate-covered raspberry and chocolate malt. The combination promises a sensory experience that intrigues the senses.

Flavorful Complexity

Tackling the taste, Odell Amuste unfolds a complex palette. The red wine barrel infusion is evident, accompanied by notes of dark chocolate, oak, and brambles. The beer delivers a robust and enduring roasty finish that lingers on the palate.

Texture and Tone

In terms of mouthfeel, Odell Amuste doesn’t shy away. The lively carbonation adds a refreshing touch to its full-bodied character, creating a dynamic drinking experience.

Critical Acclaim

While the reviewer typically steers clear of beer/wine hybrids, Odell Amuste managed to surpass expectations. Described as a delivery of bold flavors and a harmonious fusion, this imperial porter earns its spot as a noteworthy creation in the world of craft brewing.
