3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from 2009. Busted it out for GUYS NIGHT!!!!!!!
Looks pretty nice. Golden yellow color. Nice lacing.
S: Smells great. Bananas. cloves. cherries, strawberries
T: Tastes pretty gross actually. The must note in this is pretty intense. Few of the fruit notes come through, rather they appear muddled together and no one really stands above. Alcohol is pretty intense.
M: Fine on the mouthfeel. Nothing special. Light/medium body.
Overall it seems like there is potential here, but all the great flavors just mix together with nothing standing out. Not really the best showing from allagash.

Bottle 750ml @ Motel room, Red Roof Inn, Akron, OH
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, white wine, dried fruits and hint of citrus. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, slightly dry, fruity, yeasty and vinous finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I think the best thing about this beer is its appearance- a huge thick, foamy, off-white, slow to settle head with lots of lace and a very clear golden color. Aroma is malt, grain, yeast. Flavor is very mild, understated, malty, slightly metallic, yeast, a bit of carbonic tart, fairly dry. Texture is light, soft. This is a very low-key Belgian Style Strong.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cask and Vine while enjoying the company of Todd the Hoople.
Lightly hazy deep straw with hints of wine yellow if that makes any sense. Fruity earthy spicy aromas and flavor. Interesting brew a bit outside of the box. I enjoyed this more than its counterpart.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Note that it is better to have wIth salty foods than with sweet/chocolate foods. You can taste the grapes as it has a sIght raisin oaked barrel taste. Not a hearted beer, rather heavy but easy enough to finish a 750ml alone in 2 hours! Bottle

"Nice mix of honey and white grape sweetness, and light funk (though more pronounced than Victor). A rare blend of refresher and contemplative sipper. Very nice."

Is there anything better than the Allagash reserves? Just opened a caged and corked 750ml bottle from 2011. Pours a gentle yellow with a thick consistent cloud. Strong ale taste that draws you into the whole bottle. Just another wonderful offering from the great brewers in Portland, Maine. Cheers!
