Another good one from Allagash. Poured into a Chimay chalice, to the top with a thin head reduced to a lace around the glass and an island in the center. Has a smell of phenols, spices and biscuits, vague dark fruits. Almost savory.

The taste is a little light while still acheiving a complexity. The malt is strong and acquired a spice from the Belgian yeast. It tastes sweet up front but finishes dry. Not my favorite from Allagash, but that's an easily quaffable beer.

Poured a muddy brown with three fingers of fluffy cream-colored head. Gentle aroma of spice, banana, and bready yeast.

Moderate carbonation and a light, creamy mouthfeel. Biscuity toffee sweetness up front mingling with apple, banana, and earthy spice on the relatively dry finish.

Pretty tasty; not too sweet and well-balanced. Worth trying at least once!

A-medium dark copper body with a thick 1 finger head that maintains itself well then fads and leaves ample lacing .body is slightly hazy

S-hops, orange peels, plums, dark fruits, malt, vanilla, clove, honey

T-heavy maltiness, baking chocolate, walnuts, vanilla, subtle hops

M-thick body with very very low carbonation. Leaves palate semi dry waiting for the next sip

O-another very enjoyable offering from what has become a favorite brewery of mine. Every beer they make is deeply complex and rich with flavor.
