Another Tuesday Night Beer Club (TNBC) has come and gone. If you are sharp, you would notice that this is written about a American craft beer drank on Thursday, so why would I bring up TNBC? In order to accommodate schedules Thursday is used as the alternate day. You don’t change the name of the event because you change the day. Think of it this way: your work week is Tuesday through Saturday, you are off on Sunday and Monday. The days of the week don’t change names to accommodate the change in the “normal” work schedule.
Now that that is out of the way on to American craft beer number 331: Odyssey by Allagash Brewing Company. A Belgian Dark Strong Ale, Odyssey is a divine indulgence. Ed brought a July 2009 bottle to the table and shared. Aroma and taste are smooth and delicious. Both the nose and mouth are complex full of dark fruits, spice, caramel, and toffee.
The high cost of Allagash beers drives me crazy but this one might be worth it. Enjoy!
Useless Fact: Zachary Taylor, twelfth president of the United States, did not vote until he was sixty-two. He did not even vote in his own election. Taylor, a professional soldier, lived in so many places during his life that he was unable to establish a legal residence until he retired.
