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: 55įF Recommended Cellaring Temperature: 55įF

MaltOMeal (1093) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2009
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.

Pleasant and rich. Found the roastiness and other aspects other than the esters to be pretty subdued. Iím not crazy for stouts and this one while good didnít call my name or ask me for my phone number.

750ml w/ mpersinger (thanks to Nate). Pours black with nice off white head. Aroma of belgian yeast (spicy, phenolic), coffee. Tastes of black licorice , some coffee and chocolate, black patent malt, not too hoppy, but good balance. Mineral-like finish. This is a creative and amazing brew.

mpersinger (360) - , California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
From 750 ml bottle at Nateís tasting. Pours very dark with brown halo and no head. Aroma is distinctly clean Belgian yeast. Flavor of soft black licorice and flat Pepsi, leading rapidly to a mineral finish. Lean (not watery) body, good carbonation and complexity.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - FEB 26, 2009
Thanks to rcasta. Poured black with a nice brown head. A different stout, I think Allagash was creative. Tasted more like belgian strong ale, very malty and sweet.

Ernest (7214) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle (batch 4). Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/nuts, chocolate/cocoa), with light notes of vanilla and chalk, hint of lemon zest. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Previous bottle (same batch) I tried was somewhat infected, so I waited to rate from my second bottle, which wasnít. So, beware of sourish, almost "Fantome-like" bottles. Even in good shape itís still pretty ordinary for the most part. Not a lot of Belgian character, pretty much a straight stout/porter kinda thing. Kinda cocoa-powdery/chalky nose, not the most enticing but ok. Nice balance keeps you drinking even though itís not exciting.
