COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Pours a dark brown with a small beige head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of roasted malt and slight dark fruits. Taste is of more dark fruits and light roasted malt. Atypical stout to me but maybe all foreign stouts were like that? Light sweetness in the finish. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. A fair stout but a bit weak by Allagash’s standard.

Eructoblaster (3790) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle - 12oz. Pours an opaque black body with a diminishing off-white foamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its robust, well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries roasted coffee, oaky, and some black pepper notes. Ends with a long, sharp bitter/roasty finish. Well done.

Dark brown pour with tan head. Aroma mainly abbey type yeast/ spice but coffee becomes apparent as it warms. Roasty and light spice flavor, anise, some chocolate, average mouthfeel.

polo_marco (313) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Malty chocolate for the scent. Nice deep rich dark black color. Taste is of chocolate and barley just like it’s brewed. Full body with medium carbonation. This could be my next goto stout. Not a big allagash fan even though I’m from Maine. This is one of your best brews.

Not bad for a Belgian. I don't like the flavor of Belgian yeast, so it's a little tough to get past that. However, the chocolatey malt is very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TATE (402) - Lubec, Maine, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a billowing tan head. Malty and somewhat metallic smell. Big roasty malt up front and throughout with a bit of heat at the end. Okay stout, much better when I’ve had it on tap.

boto (2086) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Draught @ Black Eyed Sally’s: This one pours a fairly opaque black color. There was just a bit of a tan head that left a little lacing. Good nose. Some chocolate, roasted malts, breadiness. The taste is very good. Belgian ale meets stout. Chocolate, some roast, breadines, faint dark fruits, maybe a hint of raisin.

Shag (2834) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Dark brown with a minimal beige head. Aroma is chocolate, brown sugar, and toffee. Taste is sweet with some molasses, toffee, and caramel. Like a liquid Heath Bar. Hellz yeah. Overall very tasty.
