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.

4.45/5  rDev +4.5%

750ml C&C bottle. Bottling: February 2011. 10.4% ABV. Served in a tulip at cellar temperature.

Pours a deep ruby-red brown, almost black. A huge, more than three finger head of meringue-like beige foam. A lot of lacing clings to the glass.

Aroma is very grassy and earthy and quite dry. Some sweet chocolate malt sneaks through. Some Belgian candi sugar. A hint of dry vanilla oak.

Flavor is quite delicate and is a nice balance of bitter hops and roasty chocolate malt. Mildly sweet with dark fruit notes. Maybe a touch of alcohol in the finish, but extremely well buried. I know this is a wheat based beer, but the overall flavor is much more complex than expected. You can pick up some notes from the barrel aging, but it's quite light.

Medium bodied with extremely nice, medium super-soft natural carbonation. Fantastic mouthfeel.

I really love this beer. Great flavor and mouthfeel. Nothing about it is of an extreme nature, yet the ABV kicks in above 10%, and isn't noticeable. Amazing.
