Not nearly as impressed by this as some of the other Allagash offerings. Dark brown color with a strong white head. Aroma was spice filled. The overwhelming flavor to me was one of pepper and I just could not get past that to taste anything else.

Batch#114. Une bouteille de 75 cl partagée avec ma femme et ma belle-maman. Une robe brune acajou sur laquelle flotte une généreuse tête beige. Au nez, les malts sont foncés en caramel et en notes chocolatées. Bonne présence de noix autant aux arômes qu’aux saveurs. Raisins et figues avec une touche des houblons terreux et quelques épices (cultivars et/ou levure?). Bon corps crémeux qui mousse à la belge. Une finale bien sèche et modérément longue.

Dark maroon red, 1 finger dark brown head. The aroma is nutty, pistachio, burnt sugars, caramel and wood. Clean yeasty taste with hits of dessert wine, dark fruits. very interesting. nice beer.

Bottle. It comes to my attention I have never rated this beer... Brown hazy pour with tan head. Sweet brown sugar, sweet malt and light fruit aromas. Spice, fruit, some sugars, mild fruit and sherry flavors.

drpimento (2395) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Best thing here was appearance, which was a huge, rocky, cream-colored, long lasting head, some lace, and a clear buckwheat honey amber color. Aroma is mainly yeast, some malt, fruit, spice. Flavor’s similar to nose, somewhat bittersweet along with some carbonic tang and a little metallic. The metallic affects the body leaving high points that don’t fit. Maybe this beer gets a lot better with age, as the label suggests.

VastActiv (3496) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Tap at Beer Authority, New York. Colour is cloudy dark orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Dark fruits, some sweetness and malts. Quite malty dubbel in fact. Nothing special still.

Bottle from Total Wine in Charleston. Definitely tasting old- second bad bottle I have bought from there. Pours a nice dark amber. Sort of a rich old-world color. Definite Belgian notes upfront- spice, banana, clove with malty caramel sweetness and fig/date coming through in finish. Pretty stale so hard to judge accurately. Slick and full mouthfeel. Bit metallic at the end. Might be great. Seems to be well balanced. Will have to try again- maybe on tap at source.

Bottle. Pours dark copper medium tan head. Aroma of yeasty dough, caramel, banana, and clove. Medium sweet taste. Medium full body, light dry bitterness and slight metallic finish. Solid overall.

ESPh (95) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Nice ruby amber color, white lacing after the pour. Medium body with a little cherry, cinnamon, vanilla but not sweet; a complex taste. Nice and smooth, high carbonation, crisp finish. Not sweet, just enough bitterness. Good alcohol level. Highly recommended.
