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.

Damn right! this is a stellar beer. Black pour, nice brown head. aroma is chocolate, belgian yeast, molasses and anise. Flavor is delicious. Chocolate, yeast, dark fruit, charred wood and some slight hops make this a very nice sipper. Kudos to Allagash!

Trade with After4ever, thanks Tom. It’s black with a red hue and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, cough medicine, licorice, anise and rubber. The flavour has sweetness, notes of anise, rubber, licorice, roasted malt, yeast, chocolate and a very light bitterness. I’m never thrilled when brewers mix Belgian and US styles, and this beer is no exception. It’s good, certainly, but not one I would buy, if it came to the country.

25 oz bottle, from Julio’s Liquors. Pours a very dark brown, almost black body with a creamy chocolate brown head that lasted forever. Roasty and chocolaty nose with a nice yeast influence. Coffee, roasted peanuts, and some burnt malt. I’m liking the Belgian twist with this guy. Very smooth up front, soft roast with a light bitterness. Finishes with lots of chocolate and yeast, and lingering coffee. No alcohol flavor at all, which often bothers me with Allagash beers. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy in texture with maybe just a bit too much carbonation. This was pretty great. Very very much a surprise. Usually I set myself up for a bit of a disappointment with Allagash, but this is now a favorite from them.

Pours a brownish-black with an excitable tan head. Aroma is dark malt, chocolate, a hint of coffee, black licorice, and earth with a lingering hop bite and coffee bitterness that continues on into the finish. Not bad.

Bomber via Sloth. Batch 4. Black pour with a dense tan head. legs are frothy and stick to sides of glass and diminish quite slowly. Intense burst of fruit as the cork is pulled. Nose then settles to toasted malts and syrup tones. A mellow percentage of cofe in the Medium body. slick mouthfe allows the intermingling of chocolate malts and the toasted malts to swirl about you mouth in glee. Hops are wallflowers in this brew. Finish is as strong and even as the body. Props to Bertly! Huzzah!

Lubiere (12689) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
A dark black stout with a thin moka head. A rather funkey chocolate aroma with herbaceous notes, a bit of catnip. In mouth, a bitter chocolate with dandelion and grass, lingering roastedness. Medium bodied. Bottle at American Flatbread, Post Vermont Brewfest Dinner, July 19 2008 with TaktikMtl and Goldorak.

Cybercat (4986) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Comes out of the tap a deep opaque sable with a fairly thick tan head - very appetizing. Aroma is like well-roasted mocha and has just a hint of caramel. Flavor is rich and ’’stouty’’ - smoky with strong coffee and unsweetened chocolate components - and has just a touch of sweetness. Finish is smooth and very pleasing. A winner!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 21, 2008
From the Bottle Shop in Carrboro, NC. Very interesting and unique. Pours black (surprise) with an enormous head. Lots of roasted malt, dark fruits, espresso, and dark chocolate in the nose. A little spicy and a little hoppy on the palate but very nice- distinct from a regular stout. This could be a quad made with roasted malt. Very original and very good.

Allagash is worth the price every time. This is a inspired blending of stout dark roastiness with belgian light palate and crisp carbonation. the color was as dark as any good stout with a think head that wasn’t much more than a film on the beers surface. chocolate and roasted malt taste was enhanced by a sparkling palate. light sense of hops in the very back of the finish.

Black pour with thin tan head. Sweet roasted malt with some spices in the aroma. More roasted malt with coffee anda little dark fruit, lingering bitterness on the finish. Nice and viscous on the palate with effervescent mouthfeel. Very nice beer; expect nothing less from Allagash.
