COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash Grand Cru is deep golden in color, and has a firm yet refined malty palate. Taste and aroma have suggestions of smoke and licorice, with subtle hints of fruit and spice. An excellent beer to enjoy during the cooler seasons.

Batch #15. Poured with a camel color head, hazy golden amber, nice lacing. Nose of sweet light banana bread, yeasty with a hint of spice. Wasn’t sweet as it smelled, but had more spicy, slight smokey, buttery and malty goodness.

This one poured a murky orangey hue with a small head. The head almost went away instantly which is typical for strong ales. The taste was a very pleasant combination of malts, coriander, and spice/clove. I enjoyed this one from Allagash.

beautiful burnt-red colour gives way to an inviting nose that screams 'drink me, i'm really tastey' with a complex mixture of malt, citrus and flavours still unknown to my amatuer nose. well mixed beer, tastey to the last drop :]

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep/dark amber color with a nice 1-2 finger offwhite head. A nice looking beer. Very cloudy. Aroma of carmel malts, doughy yeast and spice fruit. Malts and doughy/banana-y yeastiness come in first upon taste. Then moved on to notes of spiced fruit/honey and finishes with a hint of wheat and alcohol. Mouthfeel is very soft and velvety. Hard to drink alot, not because its heavy (although it is probably a medium-heavy body) necessarily but b/c of just the soft mouthfeel. Carbonation is assertive but very nice. Compared to some other similar Belgians (Delirium Nocturnum is first to come to mind) it is significantly more smooth, balanced and complex. The slightly lower alcohol also makes it more pleasant to drink and it lacks any of that metallic aftertaste.

On cask. Increadibly smooth, satisfying, drinkable. Rare stronger beer that I could drink in high quantities.

This beer is about balance, every character is a compliment of another. It’s cloudy in the glass, but the aromas are unrestricted notes of honey, spice, and roasted pumpkins. The palate is creamy and soft.

A nice surprise. Good flavor - a fine beer for cold nights.
