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

Headbanger (3306) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2008
750 ml corked bottle-Pours a pitch black body with a decent sized tan head that dissipates into a small ring. Aroma of chocolate, belgian yeast, and roasted malt. Taste of chcolate, coffee, malt, and finishes very dry. This medium to full bodied stout has the champagne like taste in the mouth but is still very well balanced but a bit thin. Another great brew from Allagash.

skortila (4516) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2008
Bottled. Tnx to Noize for the import. Aroma has rye and chocolate. Black coloured with a beige head. Taste is sweet with chocolate malts, has some laurel and with a hint of black currant. Some bitterness. okay. Probably the most belgian stouts are brewed outside Belgium. This might be the reason why the style is called ’foreign stout’.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Cask, into Imperial Pint. Pours black with a healthy, creamy light tan head. Nose is cocoa and roasty coffee, with a hint of floral hops mixed in. Taste is so smooth - cocoa and roasty espresso meld with a mellow dark fruit & cherry note, and floral hops asserting themselves just enough to balance, with almost no acidity. Silky smooth, with full but fairly light body. Really fantastic beer when cask conditioned.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Batch 4 from Sams in Durham. Black pour and a tan head that dissipates quickly. nose is chocolate with that belgian funk. slight roastiness in the back of the throat, but less than I would expect. It balances well. hops are slightly noticable, but rather subdued. slight alcohol warming.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2008
75cl bottle from Pristine Liquors (Spring Hill, FL). Pours a dark black with a thick and foamy tan head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt, coffee, smoke, and ripe dark fruit. Flavor is rich and malty with smoky, nutty and coffee notes. Some hoppy bitterness throughout. Generally medium to full bodied with a lingering bitter coffee, nutty finish.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet roasty dark caramel and biscuity Belgian malts with a touch of fruity plums. Body starts with good fullness and carbonation with sticky sweet milk chocolatey flavors before a roasty bittersweet finish. Nicely balanced, flavorful and very drinkable.
