guzzler67 (1558) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Hazy, amber-orange appearance with a large, fluffy white head and modest lacing. Aroma incorporates earthiness, wood, whiskey and tropical fruit. Tastes range from coconut, initially, to toffee-like malt, finishing with the inherent flavors from the barrels. Smooth, mellow with little sweetness; alcohol is noticable but not overbearing from this Dec 04 bottle.

bb (7335) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Bottle February ’05 bottling. 11% ABV. Pale golden with an off-white head. Wonderful rich, complex aroma - fruit, malt, yeast, oak, vanilla. Rich flavor of vanilla, fruit (strawberry and citrus) with a huge bourbon finish. Alcohol presence in finish. Rich body, but also silky and easy to drink. Surprisingly easy to drink.

Crockett (1031) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Pours hazey apple juice, big white lacing head disappeared in seconds. Sweet hop floral nose, woody, and vanilla. Citric (limes), honey cake. Lots of strawberries. Finish is boozy and warming. A little underwhelming.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Aroma of cabernet, oak. Appears orange-pink in color. Flavor is bouron and oak. Palate is effervescent, bubbly, appropriate. Overall, I found this experience to be absolutely sublime. I wish I had been in a position to do a proper rating.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Bottled Feb ’05, 11%abv. Pours hazy golden with thick white lasting head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma is fresh, grassy, with a slight bit of oak. Flavor, now this is something else. Rich flavors of bourbon and oak with slight vanilla. Very creamy and silky smooth. Very unique and unusual beer. Very good beer. Alcohol is not apparent. I am quite pleased by this one. If I see this one again I will not pass it up.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Poured golden with a light white head. Aroma is strong. Taste was sweet with light fruits and bourbon. There is definitely an oaky taste as well. Tried this one with Dragonstout and SoLan. Definitely will get better with age even though its great now. Doesn’t have to be chilled to be enjoy. I have tried it both ways and liked it the same. I got lucky and found a case at a local beer store and bought it up. Plan to age most of them before drinking.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Bottle. Golden color with rocky white head. Aroma is very oaky and strong. Taste...POW! A little sweet with a strong flavor of oak wood alcohol. I was not necessarially expecting this out of an Allagash ale, but it was good.

Recieved through trade with Zathrus13. Pour was a lot lighter than expected, really didnt have any expectations other than how the odyssey poured out. Nose full of bourbon, unlike any other barell aged beer before. I really havent had a lot of hard liqour or the like, but from what I have experienced, this was like a watered down version of a bourbon. Some fruit hidden under its huge blast of potent alcohol and oak. Quite spicy and still a bit hot, but was still a nice change of pace from the "normal" beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Bottle 340. Nice sweet and citrus aroma. Pours a lovely full, thick orange/yellow, like good cheddar cheese. Beautiful white head, lots of cabo action. Immediate rush of bourbon that lingers delicately on the tongue, but never overpowers. The mouthfeel is like beautiful lacing around your favortie glass. A wonderful beer, worth every penny of the $16.99 + tax I paid for it at the Whip-In in Austin. If you have a chance to grab one of these, do not hesitate!
