3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml I’ve been saving. Not sure why I opened it today but it has been calling to me. Pours a deep caramel brown. Thick, you can’t see through this baby. Very inviting with its creamy thick beige head and fresh caramel aroma with hints of apple or pear. Great belgian. A bit sour, bready flavor. Alcohol sneaks up at the end but not overwelming. Nice warmth. Dry bitter finish.

750 ml bottle at home from early backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy dark orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, dried fruit, raisins, figs, mild spices, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, some earthy notes to the finish. Solid enough. I have enjoyed many of the beers from Allagash.

Thanks to Jcr! Pours a light ruby. Nose is fruity, caramels, light sherry, fruit and even a little cardboard. Flavor is slightly tart, fruity, wine notes, light oxidation. Sweet and moderately rich. Really not bad for its age.

Cloudy brown beer. Crispish semi dry palate with low carbonation. Sweetish malt with a dry spicy undertone. Dark orange buried deep. Dry finish with an odd aftertaste. Mmm!

Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheBeerSommelier. 2:40 am, work at 9:00am tomorrow (err, today?), I probably shouldn’t be opening a sweet Allagash 750, but what the hell! Cork popped out like opening a champagne bottle. Pours a dark red-orange appearance with a cream colored head that dissipated quickly. Moderately spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon), caramel malty, dark sugar, Belgian yeasty nose. Pretty sweet, Belgian yeasty, caramelized sugar, light toffee, fig, light raisin, caramel malty flavor. Slightly spicy, caramel malty, caramelized sugar, dark raisin/fig aftertaste. Pretty awesome beer. I would expect nothing less out of one of my favorite breweries.

Wenig süßer und voller Malzantrunk. Dies wird sofort milder und wird etwas hefig. Das Bier wandelt sich nun nicht mehr sondern verharrt weitestgehend auf dieser Stufe. Wenig interessant, malzig-trocken, trinkbar. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier. 9/9/9/9/10/9

Traded bottle that’s nearing 5 years old now. Poured very gently to not anger the amorphous yeast blob living at the bottom of the bottle. Clear, bronze color with a small khaki head. Sweet Belgian aroma and honestly you can still smell the hops too. Definitely a Belgian by flavor. Nice sweeter malt notes and a little alcohol in the finish. A little spicy too. Well done.
