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!

Bottle from Dec 2011 at Novare Res in Portland, ME. Pours a very dark clear ruby red. Smells of red berries, but very muted. Tastes intensely of red berries, booze, oak, and vanilla. Smooth thick body with medium carbonation. Finishes mildly cloying. Oh so tasty.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Bottle. Small off-whrite head that dissapated quickly. Reddish-Black color. Aroma of vanilla and whiskey. Flavor is compex: coffee, molasses, oak, almost no whiskey that was prevelant in the aroma (but some alcohol flavor present). Different than anything I have had before but overall a solid strong ale.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Bottle from Lone Hill Liquor. Pours a very dark burgundy color with a short, creamy beige head. Aroma is initially chocolate and oaky vanilla, opening up to dates and figs with some phenolic notes and lots of lingering dried fruits. Flavor is again initially chocolate with a subtle roastiness, then some oak and dried fruits, and a sherry like finish that is a touch dry. Palate is soft and creamy, full bodied but not overly so. This beer manages to be bold and yet very balanced at the same time, good stuff.

brigg (487) - Washington DC, USA - APR 19, 2011
(bottle) The body is very dark brown, almost black, and a medium brown head with large bubbles. A strong nose; alcohol is evident, with sweet sugar, and sour acidic notes. Flavor has oak character, and bourbon; roasted malt and a hint of smoke. Some pleasant sourness as well. Underlying bitterness that remains strong in the aftertaste. Strong alcohol presence. Medium body, a touch oily.

6oz glass from a flight. Pour is deep amber with a small amount of off-white head. Nose is currants, raspberries, wheat, and light molasses. Taste is right on par with a lovely triscuit that rolls into the finish to make an excellent brew. This is a fantastic brew and doesn’t come off nearly as acidic as many high ABV wheat s I’ve had. Though I haven’t loved Allagash brews in the past, this is definitely on their best!

budznsudz (473) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Pours light brown with a whispy head. Aroma is toasted malt and oak with a touch of fig. Taste is oak barrel and medium body malt with a texture on the thinner side. All of the elements work well together. Quite enjoyable.

msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pour is a mahogany color with a finger thick white head. Nose is of roasted... something. Taste is similar, dominated by the aging notes more than anything, some light vanilla and some strong oak notes.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Pours a deep, cloudy brown color with ruby red highltghts. A nice inch of bubbly head and some clingy spider web lacing. A rich, malty scent with notes of raisins, plums, figs, yeast and brown sugar. A nice, complex flavor with some dried fruits up front, chocolate and malt in the middle with a slgiht alcohol burn in the finish. This is a wonderful beer that improved as it warmed. Outstanding.

gpekar (455) - Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Poured a dark mahogany brown with a short brown head. The head disappeared to just a film very quickly. The aroma was mild and had hints of wine, milk chocolate and molasses. The initial taste of the beer revealed a good amount of effervesence from a good bit of carbonation. There was also a pleasant alcohol flavor that lent a bit of tartness along with the carbonation. Flavors of milk chocolate and caramal malt were light in the middle. The finish had a nice alcohol warmth as the flavors just mellowed away.
