Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 01-30-2005

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.

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a goblet.

A- Pours a mostly opaque dark brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Some spice, earthy Belgian yeast and maybe some vanilla.

T- Toasty malt meets a mild Belgian yeast element. Not a lot of barrel character. Notes of spice, Belgian candi sugar and dark bread.

M- Slightly tangy with medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- All of the flavors are so well-integrated to this Belgian ale that the 10.4% ABV is hardly noticeable. Delicious, dangerous stuff.
