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.

Fantastic flavors of dark fruits with a touch of wood. Body is light for the style, in a good way. Incredibly smooth.

Bottled in January 2014:
Pours a deep auburn brown, clarity visible at edges. Head is small bubbles, off white, and sustaining (light lacing). Initial pour rise to a couple fingers, but leveled off at about 1/2 cm. Nose has syrupy sugar to molasses as described. Some raisin bread provides the non-sugar notes. Only a light hint of alcohol.

Taste is subdued from the wood the pervades the sip. Taste is cola, indistinct dark fruit, and a bite of the wood at the end. The flavors come across more as the beer warms, including molasses and root beer. The carbonation from the feel is also biting, very effervescent. The wood adds a dry feel to the end of the taste.

Would like a little more strength of flavor from this beer. The flavors seemed ok to maybe even a little weak, but I think the carbonation detracted from the flavor in an unfortunate way.
