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.

Poured from tap into tulip at Mekong in Richmond Virginia. Deep dark brown with a finger of head. Awesome sugary plum and raison aromas...
Sweet roasted malts, coffee, dried fruit and maybe some tobacco. Wow. Its so smooth and just a joy to drink. The wood is barely noticeable but really mellows out the brew to an almost chugable drink. This is fantastic.
