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.

This is a dark, almost black beer, with a foamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate and dark berries. Rich taste of chocolate, coffee dark raisins. Not too bitter with a creamy, full mouthfeel. A very good stout with enticing aromas and a rich, complex taste. Excellent.

I don't know why this has good reviews? No aroma light bottle and sweetness. Mouthfeel thin. Peppery taste bitterness alight astringent flavor. Not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle in LA. Pours deep black with ruby tinge, off white head. Roasted malt and some hop sourness on the aroma. Chocolate first, coffee and distinct astringency on the finish. Not sweet at all, moderately dry and bitter finish with a little hop aroma. Medium carbonation, very creamy, medium body. Not sure if the Belgian yeast is contributing any character, but it’s a nice stout.

From a bottle to a snifter. Pours a brownish black with a thick beige head. The nose is phenomenal. Coffee, chocolate, wood, bourbon, all balanced with the sweetness of a belgian yeast. Taste is chocolate and vanilla with a bit of smokey wood. Round, smooth and sweet finish. Wonderful beer!

Free! Taster at the source. Pours nearly black (surprise) with a beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, spent coffee grounds. Flavor is dark chocolate, but mostly over extracted coffee. Over extracted coffee bitter in the finish. This needs to spend some time in a whiskey (or rye) barrel.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Big & creamy, roast malts and chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Smooth, rich palate that is very full and long, it’s a great tasting beer with a lovely, smooth palate, but the finish has a bit too much sweetness for me.
