COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late this year we plan to release a second beer in the Barrel Aged series... a dark, 10% wheat beer. We have been aging a portion of the beer in New American Medium Toast Oak, and a portion in Stainless steel. We will then blend the beers to taste, and bottle condition. The beer will have spent over 6 months aging in the oak and steel at the brewery!

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2010
750ml, corked & caged bottle, July, 2009 batch from Greens in Columbia. pours a very dark brown, almost black, with hints of purple in the light and a soft, bubbly, khaki head with great lacing. aroma is excellent with tart fruit notes of currant, red grape, and plum balanced by sweet chocolate, bready malts, roasted almonds, and a hint of oak. flavor is wonderful with sweet, doughy malts, chocolate, and toffee blending with dried fruit notes of fig, prune, and raisin with hints of tart, red grape, dry cedar, and belgian spices. a very subtle touch of oak, vanilla, and whiskey come through on the finish. palate is medium bodied and highly carbonated yet creamy at the same time. overall, a great brew.

Bottle. Pour was deep copper with not a lot of head. Aroma was of toffee, dark fruits, sweet malt, and oak. Vanilla was a bit more prevalent in the flavors along with more toffee, malt, and toast. Very smooth brew with a great blend of both flavors and aromas. Id love to have another one of these.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2015 Wow, this blew me away! Brown with tan head- filtered (-1 on appearance). Aroma and flavor reveal a nice toasted woodiness, probably from the aging process. This couples with a beautiful combination of toast, roast, and bread crust, as well as darker fruit flavors (dates, raisins). Incredibly tasty. Complex and intense yet drinkable to the highest degree!

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 28, 2009
On tap at OBriens Pub in San Diego. A beginner of a fine evening of weeknight drinking late in September with Katie. Color is dark brown with a fine developing white lace served in a Chimay chalice. Aroma is mostly ashy smoke and dark fruit, with raisins and cherry tossed in the mix. Flavor is fairly light and dry, with bitter smoke and just a hint of oak showing through in the finish. Dark fruits comprise most of the flavor up front. Belgian yeast notes linger in the finish. Pretty tasty.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Appearance is a deep brown with a small off-white head, and some light lacing. Aroma of wood, yeast, malt, fruit, chocolate. Taste is of oak, fruit, sugar, chocolate, and alcohol. The mouth was average, though maybe a little light for this beer.

dagimp (962) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2013
On tap at The Greeks in Narberth PA. Pours a dark brown/black with dark white head. Smoked aroma with some maple syrup. Mouthfeel is thick and almost syrupy. Taste is dark and smooth. Less smokey than the nose but full nonetheless. Pete, oak, dark malt and liquid smoke predominate. An overall I excellent beer. I really liked it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

annunz123 (954) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Vanilla, wood, and maybe a little licorice in the aroma. A lot of malt and some smoke in the flavor, with a bit of a bitter finish. Really good but still slightly disappointing compared to some of Allagashs other efforts. Ill take the Curieux over this any day.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2006
From the Columbus tasting, shared by Ohiodad! Reddish-brown pour, brief tan head. Spicy aroma...a good bit of vanilla and oak. The flavor had some bourbon notes along with some yeast and spice elements. Nice carbonation over the palate.
