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.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle, batch 4. Pours a nearly opaque brown body with red hues and a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and bread/yeast along with a hint of coffee. Flavor is mainly roasted and burnt malts with cocoa, coffee, and tar/smoke flavors. Medium bodied with a smooth, slightly oily mouthfeel; lightly carbonated. This isnít too bad, but tends to taste one-dimensional after a few drinks as the roasted malt flavor tends to dominate.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2009
750ml. Nice black pour with a creamish colored head. Roast aromas, mocha and some light fruits, red/banana? Tastes was a good mix of roast malt, cocoa, very light coffee. A little brown sugar, cinnamon roasted pecans. Really donít get the banana flavors I head about and lightly smelled in this. If the body was just a little heavier this could easily pass as a good stout. Finished dry and clean. Normally I donít care for Belgian style aleís of any sort, but this passed the grade with flying colors.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 15, 2009
on tap at the gingerman. A nice black body with a thin tanish head that had nice retention.Aroma had a great smoke note to it as wellas sweet roasted coffee and molasass notes. Flavor was more sweet than bitter but stillnice. A little on the heavy side, which is always good with this style. finish was somewhat dry.

Tap @ Monster Bís. Thin black body with minimal head. Much of what to expect from a black lager except thereís a hint of black cherry undertone. Definitely a interesting beer. The commercial description talks about its chocolatey flavor, but I missed that.

Pours a semi-dark brown with thin tan head. Roasty malt, chocolate, fruit (raisin and fig), with some hops in the finish. Medium - light body. Itís alright, nothing worth getting excited about though.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2009
on tap at Taco Mac, Crabapple. Nice deep black with tan head (not sure what it looked like upon pour). Big huge smooth silky body with chocolate, big coffee and deep roasted malts. Nice finish with a touch of bitterness to round it out. Overall an excellent Belgian style stout that is worth exploring again.

bottle shared by someone at the February Beer Advocate stout Tasting. Pours black with a thin, off-white head. Nose is of nuts and cola. Taste is similar with roast malt and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium and bitter. This doesnít taste like a stout as much as a mix with a brown ale. Meh.
