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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottled Sept. 2008

A - Pours a deep reddish brown. Almost no head. Does leave a bit of lacing.

S - Lots of toffee, a bit of chocolate and dark fruits. Also a slightly tart presence and some oak. Very nice.

T -- Similar to smell, lots of toffee, some chocolate, and a big presence of dark dries fruits. Finishes with a slight tartness and an oak tannin dryness.

M -- Medium mouthfeel that is actually a bit thinner than expected. Not too thin bough. Finishes dry.

O -- A very nice oak aged ale. Nice flavor profile. Just wish the mouthfeel was a bit more substantial.

Serving type: bottle
