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.

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.

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2015
355ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. Shared with Finn at his place. Deep ruby-red body. Bubbly beige head leaving lacework on the glassware. Very nice. Wood, earth, and brown malty aromas. Nicely roasted chocolate malty flavours together with dried fruits, herbs and wood supported by a discreet touch of yeasty fruitiness towards the ending. Fine bodied. Enjoying (Tromsø 27.10.2015).

nazbion (275) - Tübingen, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2015
Pours hazy dark brown with big creamy beige head. Aroma is mainly belgian yeast esters, with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Taste of bread and roasted malts, bitter and light sour, some light metallic too. Medium body, quite lively carbonation, bitter finish.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of caramel, chocolate, grains and some spices. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, chocolate, spices and malts all balanced with coffee notes. Very nice.
