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!

Tasted 7/8/11. 750ml cork and cage. Thanks to phaleslu for sharing! Pours hazy with a brown hue. Tan head. The alcohol is the most apparent aspect of the olfactory. Followed by graham crackers and fudgy chocolate. Full bodied with a sweet and sticky palate. Decently blended with a noticeable chocolate note. Big and hot!

I’m trying to develop a taste for Belgian ales. It’s slow going but this one helps a lot.

radarsock (1115) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Purchased from Cigarette City, Saturday evening. $15.99 for the 750 mL bottle.
On front label, it reads: "Bottling January 2015. Cases bottled 455." 8.3% alcohol by volume.

To long-stemmed white wine glass, it pours a dark umber mauve-tinted mahogany with which a creamy, vanilla creme head 1 finger in length stood.
Aromas of fusels/nail polish, melted wax, dates, walnuts, burnt cardboard, pipe tobacco, aloe vera, and minerals. Tastes much the same with the addition of DME, damp pumpernickel, and toasted breadcrumbs.
Hints of powdered cinnamon, sweat, bay leaves, and Belgian yeast experienced by swallow.
Mouthfeel was haltingly slick, but the flavors lingered for a minutes before I had to take another sip to keep the memory formed in place.
Allagash, it seems, are incapable of releasing anything bad; mediocre or dull, perhaps, but I genuinely don’t remember drinking anything from these brewers I would consider as being "terrible".So, if you’re looking for a pumpernickel-y/bready/dark cola-y Belgian-forward beer, this should be perfect for your tastes. Not in love, but I’d take this gal out again and see where it goes.

fiveacestx (763) - Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottled in 2011 (just never got around to drinking it) - has a dark tea or cola look to it and a medium head. An aroma of dark fruits. A wood taste and some smokiness to it. Medium body and smooth.

djd07 (5885) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong dark fruit and caramel. Similar flavors to the nose, very sweet, boozy, very good.

dlovell2 (1181) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2015
Poured from bomber. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, yeast and oak. Flavor starts with a sweet toasted caramel malt followed with some brown sugar, vanilla, and dark dried fruit flavors. Finishes out with a spicy yeastiness and oak.

valpoaj (661) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Tap pour - medium tan head on a dank body. Aroma is woody, malty, somewhat smoky...hints of yeast and bread. Intriguing on the nose! Flavor is very wood forward, good dose of malt, smoke is still evident...unique drink. Medium bodied and almost seemed a bit light for the style. Enjoyable drink.

BrettTaylor (636) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2015
January 2014 bottle. Poured from bottle into snifter. Aroma - definitely smell the new oak barrels in there - almost sappy and woody; some malt, some wheat sweetness almost like a sweet dough roll. Taste - warm dark malt, then almost woody and back to some dark malt, almost rum-like, notes at finish. The woody taste and aroma definitely make this different. I only have the one bottle but at 10.4%, I wonder how it would have aged if I hadn’t been impatient!

rumproasts (4006) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Tap. Deep brown with small head. Interesting. Initially didn’t seem like much, but complexity comes out as the flavors linger. Oak, light smokiness, a hint of chocolate and roast. Thin, but tasty.
