3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated at the Pewaukee Tasting II 5/5/07.
Mild, sweet, hoppy aroma, very balanced and attractive
Unclear, dark amber in color; modest head
Flavor, hop-dominant malt, seems more like a hoppy barley-wine that a belgian strong ale.
Palate – medium-bodied, a little sweet.

750 ml bottle at home from early backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy dark orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, dried fruit, raisins, figs, mild spices, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, some earthy notes to the finish. Solid enough. I have enjoyed many of the beers from Allagash. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Thanks to Jcr! Pours a light ruby. Nose is fruity, caramels, light sherry, fruit and even a little cardboard. Flavor is slightly tart, fruity, wine notes, light oxidation. Sweet and moderately rich. Really not bad for its age.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheBeerSommelier. 2:40 am, work at 9:00am tomorrow (err, today?), I probably shouldn’t be opening a sweet Allagash 750, but what the hell! Cork popped out like opening a champagne bottle. Pours a dark red-orange appearance with a cream colored head that dissipated quickly. Moderately spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon), caramel malty, dark sugar, Belgian yeasty nose. Pretty sweet, Belgian yeasty, caramelized sugar, light toffee, fig, light raisin, caramel malty flavor. Slightly spicy, caramel malty, caramelized sugar, dark raisin/fig aftertaste. Pretty awesome beer. I would expect nothing less out of one of my favorite breweries.

Wenig süßer und voller Malzantrunk. Dies wird sofort milder und wird etwas hefig. Das Bier wandelt sich nun nicht mehr sondern verharrt weitestgehend auf dieser Stufe. Wenig interessant, malzig-trocken, trinkbar. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier. 9/9/9/9/10/9
