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.

Pours clear mahogany with thin, but lasting beige top. Aroma of vanilla takes center stage, surrounded by a light yeasty esters, some rich dark fruit, and just a hint of alcohol. Flavor follows similarly, with a slight sweetness lasting throughout the sip. In addition to vanilla and malt, the flavor finishes with just a slightly woody note, and a lingering sweet. Smooth and enjoyable all around.

On tap in South Philly during Philly beer week. Deep dark brown and rich syrupy aroma. Elements of dried fruit, raisins, prunes, but overall smooth and highly drinkable.
