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 growler filled at Bellport Beer and Cold Soda. Pours black with a moderate, dense, light brown head that lasted through three-quarters of the glass and left a light coating with each sip. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate, lightly roasted malt, and a few notes of coffee. There is quite a bit of chocolate in the flavor, along with some lightly roasted malt. After several seconds, a very nice hazelnut flavor emerges. Only slightly bitter at the finish. Very rich, silky mouthfeel. Delicious!

Bottle. [thank you, myrup]
Pours deep redish black with a big, frothy/bubbly beige-brown head. Aroma is nice, lots of cocoa, light yeast, good sweet chocolate. Low carbonation, nice light creaminess. Flavour is very nice, sweet chocolate, lightly vinious and a good yeast presence. Finish is dry and cocoa-based. Really good.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Sampled at Bocky Bash on 7-5-08 Mild aroma of coco on the nose. Black body with tan head. Seemed like this had a cola carbination to the flavor. Sweet chocolate there also. Not a very good read on this beer for me, but a decent brew.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2008
7/5/08 at the Seattle International Beerfest. Aroma is mostly true stout, with cream, sweet roast and only the lightest of fruity esters. Appearance is very dark brown with a well maintained cream colored head. Flavor is roast malt forward with moderate bittering, mostly from toast. There’s good creamy sweetness throughout. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a moderate carb texture. Overall, not as Belgian as expected, but that certainly doesn’t hurt this well made stout.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Sampled at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Dark brown pour with a ring of foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and malt, with some chocolate and caramel sweetness. Flavor is all of that, with a sour fruitiness hiding in the background. A little lighter than I was expecting in the flavor and on the palate, but really a great brew.

Bottle tasted at the 7/5/08 Bock Bash locals tasting. Pours a clear dark brown with bubbly tan head. Nose is coffee, cocoa and bakers chocolate. Taste is coffee, mild chocolate, some hops and a bit of funky sourness in the finish. Light to medium mouth feel.

What a fine ale. Had this on tap and I was so pleased with the balence of this beer. It was strong but not overpowering. Had a large tan head that lasted through the session. flavour of malts and berries.
