COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique new beer from Allagash, Allagash Four; a one-of-a-kind ale made from four malts, four varieties of hops, four natural sugars, and it's fermented – that's right – four times!

Dark amber with a beige head. Aroma contains figs, caramel, cherries, nuts, and spices. The flavor is malty and complex with tons of spices. Some alcohol shows up in the finish. Overall great for this cold ass day or any day.

Bottle. This is an incredibly delicious quad with lots of sweet belgian qualities and smooth malts.

Batch #21 A: Pours a hazy burnt toffee ale with a single finger of peanut head which dissipates quickly to leave a sheet of the same. Spotty lacing. when agitated, a full finger of fluff sticks around for a few minutes. S: Initially, floral and metallic. Followed up by sweet belgian sugar, malts and earthy yeast. Some hints of green apple skins. Afraid this would not really benefit from more time in the bottle (and I’m unsure of the age on this). T: Sweet, yeasty, see above. At the back end, the alcohol sharpens and even stabs! Haven’t had anything this alcoholic in some time. Afraid this would not really benefit from more time in the bottle (and I’m unsure of the age on this). M: Medium-lo body with seltzer carbonation. The beer is a bit light on the palate for my preference in a quad. Leaves slick in the mouth. O: A far cry from the quality I’ve come to expect from Allagash. The beer is poorly balanced and overly alcoholic. With a mouthfeel inconsistent with the style’s big dogs, this beer nearly disappoints. Last time I will buy this one.

Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a dark copper color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma was quite sweet, plenty of berries. Flavor was sweet malt, fruits, some hop notes. Pretty tasty.

Muddy brown pour with no head. Aroma and taste are dominated by a candy sweetness and some plums and raisins with a peppery spicyness in the yeast. not bad.

Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Gorgeous copper amber color with a nice head. Deceptively strong. Hides the 10% ABV very well. Has some nice warmth but otherwise nothing harsh about this...so very smooth and mellow. Nice hop presence, with a good malt base. Reminds me of an east coast IPA but with more...goodness. Was lucky enough to spend some time in Maine recently and brought home quite a bit of Allagash. Just wish I had more!

Bottle shared with my dad at the lake house. Pours a somewhat hazed amber orange with a medium sized beige head. Big spicy malt, some faint stone fruit, big caramel. Medium-bodied, sweet and a little bit of tangy fruit with some warming alcohol. Warms up even more into the finish, warm, spicy, fruity, estery yeast. Big but very tasty.
