Allagash Black, our new Belgian style stout, is brewed with German 2 row barley, Torrified wheat and oats, balanced by a large addition of Belgian dark candi to give the Black a full and silky mouthfeel. Roasted malts give this stout its classic chocolate, toast and malty taste, and contribute to chocolate notes and a hint of roasted coffee in the aroma. The Black is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and refermented in the bottle with the methode champenoise to make this beer truly unique. Availability: 750 ml bottles, 5.17 gal kegs ABV: 7.5% Original Gravity: 1.072 Recommended Serving Temperature: 55°F Recommended Cellaring Temperature: 55°F

Poured from bottle into a snifter darkest of brown black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty funky sweet. Flavor is subtle chocolalte malted. A thin feel to the palate for a stout. Its nice but I won’t head out for another bottle...

Drank from a nonic glass, poured from a bottle. Pours black with nice fluffy, light beige head, and a tiny bit of carbonation. Has aromas of roasted notes and belgian candy. Has a nice smooth initial taste that ends with a very, not very good bitter, dry finish. I expected more.

Great every day stout. Aroma like a chocolate covered espresso bean. Taste like a super smooth roasty oat forward stout. Well balanced. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For those who don’t like an overly aggressive stout this the stout for you. ABV is not overpowering makes for a good year round stout. I would buy this again not on my top of the list beers but for sure an easy go to beer.

Such a good beer. I got it in the 750 ml bottle. The 2 Row barley, torrified wheat and oats give is a silkey mouthfeel. The roasted and chocolate malt and the generous portion of dark caramelized candi sugar contribute to the apperance and aroma, and the Belgian yeast combines it all to such a great palate. I will be getting this one again..

As Belgian style stouts go, this is a very well balanced beer. It is a very smooth drink that avoids any type of hoppy finish. If I came came across this at a bar I would for sure order 2 or 3 :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
