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.

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. Itís cloudy in the glass, but the aromas are unrestricted notes of honey, spice, and roasted pumpkins. The palate is creamy and soft.

Nice color when poured with a light almost creamy head. Spicy up-front but goes down nice and easy with a mild alcohol taste towards the end.

pours an amber color with an off white head. Very nice aroma, very cirtus and fruit smell to it. nice subtle smoky mild bitter finish, the flavor is more of a sweet fruit. I really enjoyed this, as i do alot of the allagash beers. I actually passed out drunk half way through the beer and it was left open in my fridge for 2 days, and it actually tasted pretty good even then.

Poured amber with a fair bit of head. Flavor has a nice bit of fruitiness and winter spices. Very good beer. Batch 18, aged about 2 1/2 years. Held up very well, I kinda wish I would have sat on this for another 6 months, would be excellent on a cold day.
