COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late this year we plan to release a second beer in the Barrel Aged series... a dark, 10% wheat beer. We have been aging a portion of the beer in New American Medium Toast Oak, and a portion in Stainless steel. We will then blend the beers to taste, and bottle condition. The beer will have spent over 6 months aging in the oak and steel at the brewery!

07.16.05 750ml bottle, BCTC evening. Hazy brown, little head fades quickly. Light banana and cherry juice, nuts, cocoa. Syrupy sweet and a bit overdone on the booziness. Dry, hot finish. Some medicinal thing happening throughout. Hell, despite it’s faults, I really dig this stuff. Thanks Dave.

(Bottle) Sampled at the RateBeer post-party at the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown 2005 in Cooperstown, NY. Nose of iodine, red wine, malt and oak casks. Almond head with a deep brown body. Yeasty start and finish with a sweet porto malt mid-section. Yummy. Many thanks to MaiBockAddict for sharing this and other fine beers.

BCTC. Thanks for sharing this with me! Fruity plum nose - some brown sugar. A bit of wheaty fruit, plums, strawberry, raspberry. Alcoholic finish. Very nice.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Bottle thanks to Girlybeer. Dark red brown, seems almost black. There is a small foam head that dissapears quickly. The aroma is mostly of smoke, pete, fresh soil, cherry, tomato...lets just say it has a wide range of aromas. Flavor really brings out the wheat, a light sugary taste, and belgian yeast. Palate is extremely refined. It has a small bit of bitterness at the end of the mouthfeel, but it is very smokey and covers the alcohol and just makes this come off feeling like an old style of ale. Quite the tastey brew.

Pour is dark brown with a nice dense tan head...smell is initially smoke, bacon, vanilla, oak...taste is sweet with some mild rauchbier qualities including bacon and dirt, prunes, plums, some wheat...finish is nice...not too quick, but not cloying...somewhat sweet and fruity...

This is a fine creation; a full nose that foreshadows the variety of flavors that wait within. No shortage of oak here, but not nearly as intrusive or distracting as some other oak aged beers. The flavor is a very nice blend of oak, yeasty esters, smoke and boozy warmth. Dead on carbonation and a medium body, it is as equally pleasing to feel as it is to taste. This is a fantastic brew. Cheers!

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Deep cola colored ale, light tan fizzy head. The nose held rich and complex tones of vanilla, buttered oak, toasted waffles, cocoa, and spices, with lighter notes of apple and marshmallow. Flavor practically matched aroma with spiced bourbon, vanilla, plum, and toasty oak up front, and a tangy citric hop addition late which helps to maintain a very nice balance. Medium to full bodied, zesty carbonation, dry, oaky finish. Another great Allagash creation....

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Deep, deep red. Smells meaty, is this liquidized bacon I see before me? Some prunes and smoke as well. Tastes woody and oaky, dark fruit, deeply sweet. Alcohol burns at the end. Nice stuff, the oak isn’t overly done, adds to the beer nicely.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Clear brownish red with a quickly fading off-white head. Nice aroma of wood, vanilla, sherry and almonds. Flavor has notes of plum, raisin, toffee, caramel, toasted malt, oak, sherry and ends with chocolate and alcohol in the finish. Pleasantly sweet. Medium body with very fizzy, spritzy carbonation. Nice beer.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Bottle: Mostly opaque murky brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is meat, beef jerky, smoky chocolate, salty hops, prunes, light wood barrel, charred barrel, licorice. Taste is salty prune, wood, chocolate, light burbon (but not enough to burn), yeast, and thick malts. Full mouthfeel, dense, medium-lively carbonation. I thought they did a nice job with the barrel aging on this one - there wasn’t any alcohol burn like I’ve had from some bourbon barrel aged beers, and the tannic oak notes were not overpowering.
