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.

750ml bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a dark amber/brown with two fingers of fluffy head. Very good retention and lacing.

S: Caramel, cocoa powder, and sweet vanilla oak. A hint of dark fruits.

T: Caramel, a bit of prunes, and light vanilla. The flavors go well together, but this is not an overly complex BSDA.

M: Medium thickness with fairly strong carbonation.

O: The flavors go nicely together in this beer, but it's not very complex for the style. It's somewhere between a brown ale and a BSDA.
