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!

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 Another excellent brew by the folks at Allagash. Pours brown with a medium-sized head and a sweet aroma. Flavor is malty, a little chocolatey, and alcoholic. Not quite as good as their Tripel, but great if you can find it.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 Bottle at blind tiger. Deep brown, cloudy, no head at all. Nose is hit up by bready malt and yeast flavors. Rather sweet aroma: fruity (grapes, melon, dates) with mild vanilla-like alcohol vapors. Musty peaks. On the tongue, the big allagash malt hits you up. Caramelic, chocolatey, marzipan-like, very sweet. Easy to pick up alcohol, but it’s an ABT and you don’t mind that. Decent flavor balance, but just not as appealing fruitiness or yeastiness than top examples who are probably just as sweet, but manage to stuck your mind out of this thought. Full body, high carbonation a la allagash, smooth anyway. I found their tripel vastly superior, but allagash knows their brewing, no doubts about it and this will be highly enjoyable in a few years. Resampling proposed a far yeastier sample with less flavorful malt and a much more subdued flavor profile. Notes of white chocolate, sweet honey, flowers... Lowering from 3.8 to 3.5

Murky brown color,small head that had a short life then faded leaving little behind.nice fruity sweet aroma with a slight spicy hint.Nice fruit flavor the carbonation seems to make the flavors dance on the tongue with a decent hop presenceThe alcohol stays pretty well hidden with just a hint towards the end and a slight warming effect going down.Very nice brew and thanks go to Shadey for sending this very nice brew my way.

Neutral fruits, Belgian yeast, malty. Toast, light ozone hops. A subtle nose. Dark reddish amber clearxwith thin lacing off-white head. Medium silky body with smooth active carbonation. Starts with malty sweetness, vanilla, Belgian yeast. Alcohol, light fruity tang. Malty throughout with drying hop finish. Warming, light bitter sweet after. Nutty. Really nice ale.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2004
Fresh and fruity, yet cellary. Reddish brown with a creamy head. Fruity chocolate flavour. Smooth, solid, very nice, but ultimately too sweet. A bit like brown sugar, really - very sweet.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Bottle pours a cloudy deep amber, medium off-white fluffy head, strong carbonation, with attractive lacing.   Dark pitted fruit (albeit light), cloves, and hints of candi sugar on the nose.   Earth, cloves, and a hint of fig/date on the tongue.   A bit sour too...   Full bodied, enjoyable mouthfeel.   Finishes just as it starts, earthy, spices, and some dark pitted fruit.   This one isnt as sweet as I would have liked, but is still quite enjoyable.   10% ABV is well hidden, albeit quite warming.   Thanks goes out to The_Beer_God for the trade!

75cL bottle. Excellent beer! I was looking forward to finally tasting this beer...thanks to Humulone Red for sharing!!! It had a great, big Belgian yeast flavor and aroma. The carbonation was fantastic and allowed the flavors and aromas to fill your senses. I think it had a bit of coriander in it, too. If you can find this beer, try it.

I have been waiting to taste this one for a while. POurs a deep amber with a slight off-white head. Aromas of hops and pears and flavors of caramel and yeast. Full bodied but with a slight tang on the palate. I will try again, but for now, it is my least favorite Quadruple ale, but still decent overall.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Murky light cherry red in hue. Some head with great lacing. Spicy/malty nose. Great sweet spicy and yeasty character. It has a creamy sweet finish. What a great beer!

08.01.04 750ml bottle. Pours a clouded red/orange/amber that glows in the glass; smallish, creamy head; slight lacing. Smells yeasty, lots of alcohol, some light fruitiness, but really not any huge aromas in my Chimay goblet considering this is a quad. Maybe a tulip would’ve been better? Flavors of sweet plum, brown sugar, banana, slightly tropical. Palate is outstanding - creamy, smooth, and coating, then *BANG* hops come in for an unusual finish that is sharp and somewhat biting. Quite well done quad. It’s definitely done in an American style that exaggerates sweetness and bitterness. Unusual and wonderful to ponder.
