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: MAR 23, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown. Aroma and taste of dark fruit, caramel, lots of oak barrel, some bread yeasty notes. Light carb, a little syrupy but clean overall mouthfeel. Really great. -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!

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.

dagimp (766) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2013
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

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.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Aroma kicked out notes of fig with a good portion of higher alcohols. oak is noticeable. pours deep mostly transparent brown with a tan head that is big but dissipates to a thin foam leaving a little lacing. Flavor was big on figs, with subtle spiciness, peppery alcohol, vanilla, and oak. medium on the palate. bit of astringency and tannin. An alright beer, a little to tannic and did not of have the harmony of better belgian ales

This is an ok Belgian Strong Ale. Bourban, maly, and oak flavors. Finishes dry, bitter, and chewy.

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.

From Tmoney at the Cincinnati RateBeer Gathering 8/07. Woodey nose that lingered, toffee in taste (yes like a heath bar), warming finish--great drink. My favorite of the Aug 07 cincy gathering.
