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!

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Tap at Blind tiger. Poured a medium brown with a thin white head. Nice malts and candied sugars make this a very tasty Belgian strong. Maybe a less sweet and thinner version of rochefort 8, but almost as delicious, almost. Nice depth of flavor which keeps this brewer at the top of American Belgian style ales. 08 bottle. Found this quite different from the tap version I had a few weeks ago. Nose was much more oaky. This was much more carbonated also. Similar rich flavors but much more of the wooden and slightly smoked flavors. Similar depth of flavors but not as sweet as the younger version. I liked them both but prefer the aged version.

Superb brew obtained from Jeffin7. Pour was a nice darkish brown with some sediment rolling around the bottom. Nose full of alcohol, but a good alcohol, not turn you off style. Oak, raisins, more fruit behind the raisins too. Some nuttyness and caramel in the taste to make a pleasent combo with the slight sourness and potent alchol. Awesome brew.

Bottle. Pours with a brown color and a nice fluffy head. Nice aromas of caramel, wood and oak. Flavors of dark fruit, prunes, oak and bread. Some caramel components in the finish, very smooth, the alcohol is essentially not noticeable.

On tap at The Greeks in Narberth PA. Pours a dark brown/black with dark white head. Smoked aroma with some maple syrup. Mouthfeel is thick and almost syrupy. Taste is dark and smooth. Less smokey than the nose but full nonetheless. Pete, oak, dark malt and liquid smoke predominate. An overall I excellent beer. I really liked it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle from Sloth in a trade. Poured in a snifter, a dark concoction with ruby edges and a thick and diminishing head. Fruity aroma and very Belgian like with notes of yeast and spices. Peppery as well. Body is super smooth and somewhat luscious and full. The oak comes late in the finish with malty sugary flavors. A solid ale from Allagash! Thanks Bert!

Pours a dark brown. Has a woody, dark fruit and caramel aroma. Taste is similar to the aroma but with some stout features of coffee and a little chocolate.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with an average, beige head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet with notes of caramel, berries and a hint of oak/cask wood. Slightly bitter at the end. Overall decent but a little too sweet for my taste.

Bomber acquired @ Allagash Brewery, Portland, ME, and shared with ArcaneApollo. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a lacy tan head. The aroma is largely vanilla and oak, with a slight fruit and smoky characteristic thrown in. The flavor is the same, but overall it seems this beer is a bit confused. The flavors, vanilla, oak, plum, raisin, yeast, grape, and so forth, seem to crash into each other at times rather than subtly sliding and dancing across the tongue as in many Allagash brews. The alcohol is more noticeable here than in others I’ve tried from Allagash. Good, but not in the same league as their best.
