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

Pours with a disappointing head, thin and low, has some slight Belgian yeast aromas with Munich and Roasted malt hints. Flavor is thin with some roast and hop flavor and bitterness noted. Average, not the best of Allagash. Decent beer at a high price.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 19, 2008
On-tap at PP C’Bad. Pours dark brown with a big creamy light brown head, good retention, good lace. Smells dark and malty and also a little bit of rubbing alcohol. Tastes like dark sweet malts mixed with tequila. Not that good. Medium body, good carbonation.

Sampled at the Savor DC event. Pours a watery, opaque black with a thin white head. Peppery, yeasty, nutty aroma. Flavor is similar, with pepper, licorice, yeast and grain. Finish is soft with just a little bite.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Shared with TMoney99 & MBall581 @ Riversbend in Mainesville. Well crafted beer. This beer brought back memories of De Dolle’s Export Stout. Very dark in color, with and aroma of Belgian yeasts. I like stouts and frankly most dark beers and I’m always interested in tasting a new variation on a stout. The dark malts in these one gave it a charcoal taste with enough sugars and yeasts flavors to balance it out. Good & Interesting stout.

jefcon (1377) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2008
This unconventional stout claims a great heritage from the baltic stouts, but relies on the dryness of a good proper English stout to get its point across. Great nose of coffee and bitter chocolate. Long, but dry finish is unusual. Plenty of barley, wheat, oats, and a generous roast on the beer. Really one of the better big bottle offerings of Allagash and a great brew.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 16, 2008
A beer that definitely doesn’t live up to its name...where’s the black??? This beer is a deep rich mahogany. Anyway, the aroma isn’t as pungeant as others but exhibits Belgian chocolate, dark roasted coffee, and perhaps a little toffee. Doesn’t really coat the palate when and ends with a dryer, more chalky finish. A bit disappointing.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2008
On tap at Trappeze. Dark brown, almost black, pour with a big offwhite head. Aroma is a little weak but there’s some roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is very nicely malted, with chocolate, coffee, and some light smoke. Mouth is very carbonated, which gives this a nice balance.

hapjydeuce (932) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 14, 2008
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad, tried alongside a fresh pint of Black Lie. Black center with a bit of fizz, not much head. Maroon edges, aroma of smoke and ashy notes. Lots of carbonation, simple flavor of roasted chocolate, grains and light licorice; minimal complexity. Ends very dry and it is medium bodied.
