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

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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Sample from WBF in Durham. Very dark pour wnd not a very big head. Roasty malt barley on the nose. Toasted bread. Chocolate and dark fruits. A mix b/w a quad and a stout perhaps? Surprisingly light palate. Damn, I wish this were cheaper.

rmalloy (199) - los angeles, California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Solid. Dark chocolate. Roasty but not too roasty. Subdued but complex fruit--hints of a Quadrupel. Light hops, not roasted malt, provide most of the bitterness. This beer is a success.

Draft at Sierra. Great color and nose. Aromas lead it to be higher than 7.5 but overall a great smooth flavorful beer.

douglas88 (8090) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 750 ml bottle thanks to hopscotch. Pours a mostly black color with some red edges. A thick light brown head. The aroma is very nice; a sweet and rich fruity malt. Also some yeast, coffee and light milk chocolates. The flavor was excellent; toasted malts, rich chocolates, some sweet dark fruits, a bit of yeast, and a slight bitter coffee bean and hops. A excellent mouthfeel; rich and creamy. Just a great beer. I drank the 750 with ease, and wanted more.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Pours black with a tiny bit of transparency at the top. Thin carbonated head with some thick dense lacing. Strong molasses aroma, soda water, alcohol, cherries, and a tiny bit of chocolate. Strong coffee flavor upfront, followed by creamy chocolate and a mix of berries. Mouth feel isn’t thick, but not thin. Very drinkable and throughly enjoyable.

mansquito (5032) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Big fat tan head and a purely black body (surprised?). Smells pretty sweet and fruity with some roasted malts in there. Beer itself is kind of syrupy and has a slight taste of alcohol. A sort of Belgian feel is in the beer. Chocolate taste throughout, but in a different way than you would typically expect from a stout.
