Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Odyssey is a dark wheat beer aged for ten months, a portion in oak barrels and the remainder in stainless tanks. The recipe includes 2-row barley, malted wheat, a generous amount of roasted barley and Belgian candi sugar. This deep brown beer boasts an aroma of black treacle and raisin. The flavor hints at dates, with a mildly roasted finish imparted by aging in both medium and heavy toast American Oak barrels. The finish is dry, punctuated by vanilla.

Bottled Feb 2005. Great pop on the champagne cork unveiled an amazing nose of oak, peaches, rum, raisins and booze. It poured dark, thick with a nice lather. I took a small sip and it felt like I took a big swig. Huge flavors of oak and bourbon in a rich creamy ale. The sweetness is one of vanilla, peaches and honey which helps balance some of the alcohol burn. This is a serious beer. If you like what I’ve described then you will love this but it isn’t for everyone. I was going to ding this beer on the drink ability. After I few sips I thought I would only drink half a bottle but after drinking 3/4 of the bottle I wanted more. Once it warmed, a great ale shined through. It paired great with blue cheese and aged Gouda. Thanks to Jetsbeer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: Dark mahogany. Fat messy off white head.
smell: Spicy and tart. Lots goin on.
taste: Again, lots happening. Spicy, cloves maybe. Something else there, like burnt sugar (in a good way).
overall: An impressive brew. To be honest, not my favorite style but I appreciate the artistry here and glad I tried it.
