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.

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.

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.

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.
