Beer of the Week: Odell’s Dark Days Taster Tray

Dark Days Taster Tray at OdellThe weather is getting even more chillier in the evenings, the sun sets earlier, and we had to turn the clocks back an hour.  We are headed full steam into Winter.  Some places around town have already seen the first snow.

Chilly weather is dark beer season and Odell is indulging lovers of dark beer with a Dark Days taster tray.  It’s full of glorious dark beers that are on a rotating basis, as soon as one keg kicks then they’ll add on different dark beer.

The day I was there, the taster tray included:

  • Change Maker, Black Kolsch
  • Tall Tale Brown, English Brown Ale
  • Loose Tool, American Brown Ale
  • Oh My Gourd, Smoked Pumpkin Ale
  • Soulless Black Saison
  • Mountain Standard, Double Black IPA

The Change Maker was my favorite of this flight.  It was light but had a smooth coffee flavor it to that was a pleasant surprise.  Coming in second was Tall Tale Brown, it was a little floral on the finish which I found interesting for an English Brown Ale.

If you love dark beers then head over to Odell, grab a Dark Days taster tray, and relax by the fire pit!
