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

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Pours dark brown out of the bottle before settling in as a pitch black in the glass with a fluffy off-white head. Lacing was excellent. Roasted malts and hints of coffee in the nose. The taste is also dry and roasty with dark chocolate and a bit of roasted coffee in the taste. There is definitely a Belgian yeast presence in the background as well. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and highly carbonated with a very dry finish. This is a very nice and different stout from Allagash. Highly drinkable.

mcox90 (1644) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 14, 2008
750 ml bottle, Batch #4. Pours a black color, which when held up to light, reveals itself to be a very deep brown with see thru edges. 1/2" off white head with some minimal lacing. Nose is malts, some chocolate & yeast. Palate is silky smooth, yet with a fair amount of carbonation. Taste is a funky mix of the Belgian style yeast and the usual stout flavors of roasted malt and chocolate. Very interesting brew. If you get a chance to try it, do it!

Very dark brown colour, tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts and licorice. Flavour is sharp roasted, alcoholic, and has bitter coffee. Nice!

Headbanger (3491) - 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 (4749) - 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.
