My buddy brought over a bottle of Allagash Odyssey to share. The beer pours a brown color with amber hues and a frothy tan head. The aroma consists of raisin, malts, caramel, toffee, fig, and oak. The taste is sweet and malty with lots of raisin right up front. It is evident that this is a very malty beer that has some caramel, toffee, and fig as well. The finish brings out some dry oak flavors, balancing the sweetness. The alcohol content is 10.4% ABV. The Odyssey is a dry and malty beer that is smooth drinking with great malt accents that kill the beer beer from being too sweet.
