Pours unclear amber malty in color with red clay white head. The aroma brings lightly sweet aged oaky malt notes with some alcohol notes at the end. The flavor brings some aged malt notes with the alcohol presence still there and some starch like flavors. madmitch76 (24980) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012

Hazy amber beer. Dry frothy palate. Immediate vegetable spice that dominates the creamy malt. A bit like ginger but it’s not ginger! Frothy in the mouth, it finishes dry with some warmth. As so often with Allagash - interesting but not quite inspiring.
