Allagash Grand Cru is deep golden in color, and has a firm yet refined malty palate. Taste and aroma have suggestions of smoke and licorice, with subtle hints of fruit and spice. An excellent beer to enjoy during the cooler seasons.

750 mL bottle, batch #8. Pours clear and clean copper with a tall fizzy and frothy "loud" head that stays mostly throughout with lined lacing. Cellared oak and yeast (dust) start with sweet ligthly roasted caramel malts following and wheat, fruit (banana, grape) and spice notes. Sweet medium acidic caramel malt flavor with yeast and fruits to finish. Medium bodied and fizzy palate that ends somewhat dry, very lively carbonation.

"good looking beer...everlasting white fluffy head on a light amber cloudy beer. smell is a little more subdued than expected but quite pleasant. picking up more barleywineish carmel aspects than expected. flavor mellow but complex of fruit, yeast, spices, and a bit sweet. smooth finish. overall, not quite what i was expecting, but pretty good. i’d get it again. for $9 a bottle, though, it may be a while."

Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2004
Spiced Belgian style, very similiar to Unibroue. Excellent aroma, nice white creamy foam and carbation. Cloudy orange brown color. Yeast with noticeable pieces. Moderate malt and citrus orange peel, pear, hint bannana very pleasant fruit and herbs. Coriander (which may reduce fertility). Bonus for complexity. Good competition for wine.

12 oz bottle-pours a big rich to shaving cream light tan head that laces and hazy amber color. Aroma is medium malt-musty caramel, herbal-ginger. Taste is lots of medium malt/grainy-musty caramel, secondary spices/herbal-ginger, faint medium/dark fruit, smooth, malty, yeasty. Nice mouth feel. Soft carbonation works well.

madsberg (11799) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Light beige head. Sweet, herbal, fruity and caramelly aroma. Flavour is flowery, caramelly, has alcoholnotes and fruitnotes. Is quite citric and acidic and quite grapish sour. Medium bodied. Nice balanced. Light bitter and sweet in the end. Good one.

hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Hazy, deep amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Nutty, spicy nose with clove and smoke phenols. Citrus fruit hops; fuzzy fruit esters. Sweet, spicy flavor with blasts of coriander and caramel and a suggestion of hops without any real bitterness. Almost full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, mildly sweet, warming finish.

750 ml bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, caramel, dried fruit, yeast, mild spices, vanilla, oak, coriander, dry finish. Solid offering, disappointing that they pulled out of Ohio.
