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.

Tasting glass on tap at the brewery.

Appearance: Pours a cola color with a sizable white head. Lots of lacing.

Aroma: I get caramel, some wheat, a slightly touch of honey, maybe some dark fruit and some grassy background. Maybe some brown bread, too.

Taste: Taste mostly follows the nose. Caramel and grain seem to lead the way. Complex.

Mouthfeel: Sturdy and medium bodied. A sipper.

Overall: Very nice strong dark beer. I like their Allagash Dark a bit more, but that's also one of my all-time favorites, so maybe an unfair comparison.
