Dogbrick (11880) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2003
Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Great example of a winter ale. Pours a hazy amber/orange color with a thin light beige head. Thin but very sticky lacing. Welcoming aroma of spices and malt. Medium-bodied, not to spicy and not too sweet. Flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, malt and caramel lingering around. Finish is lightly hopped and a little fruity (apple and/or apricot, it was hard to pinpoint). I liked this easy-drinking seasonal.

Medium mahogony color with a very small off-white head. Aromas of spice, fruits, sugars and malts. Spicy tasting with some sweetness. Easy to drink.

madsberg (11497) - Sborg, 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.

Sammy (11390) - 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.

djd07 (11361) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper orange with a medium creamy off white head that lasts awhile leaving decent lacing along the glass. The aroma is a fruity malt with yeast and spice. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt taste with licorice and a nice spicy finish. Easy to drink hiding alcohol nicely, a very good Belgian strong ale from Allagash.

daknole (10893) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle from total wine. I like the Allagash family of beers, this one is no exception. Amber pour with a nose of spices, sweet citrus, and yeast. Flavor is very nice. Malty, fruity, spicy and some candy sugar/caramel. Nice!!

hopscotch (10708) - 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.
