Dark Wheat Ale Aged in Oak Barrels

Allagash Odyssey is a dark wheat beer aged for four months, a portion in oak barrels and the remainder in stainless tanks. The grain bill includes 2-row barley, malted wheat and a generous amount of roasted barley. This deep brown beer boasts an aroma of black treacle and raisin. Candi sugar, a traditional ingredient in some Belgian beer, is added during the boil. The flavor hints at dates, with a mildly roasted finish imparted by aging in both medium and heavy toasted American oak barrels. It has a dry finish, punctuated by vanilla.

Barrel-Aged Beers

We think of barrels as more of an ingredient than a vessel. Using different barrels, you can add notes of spirits, oak, vanilla, toasted coconut, and more. They’re also used for aging our wild and sour beers. If you’d like to explore all of our currently available beers that spent time in barrels, click below!

Dark Beers

A beer’s dark color comes from kilned malts. These specialty malts can add flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roastiness. Another fun fact: dark beers aren’t always heavy—some can have a very light, refreshing mouthfeel.
