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.

Oak barrel vanilla aroma begins the show, followed by a hint of wine, alcohol, dark malt sugars.
Pours deep dark garnet brown under a lightly tan tinted 2" moussey foam cap. Lacy with legs.
A touch of chocolate on the palate followed by caramel, rich malt, vanilla, fruit.
Medium body and medium high carbonation. Very creamy smooth - almost nitro beer creaminess. Very drinkable. Some warming but you do not notice the 10.4% alcohol.
