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: 55įF Recommended Cellaring Temperature: 55įF

Bottle from Canals, sampled with Stegosaurus..Black pour with thin tan head. Nice spicey, cocoas aroma. Flavor is a bready, spicey chocolate with a hint of smoke and coffee back bite. I enjoyed this.

The Dan Journal #171. Tasted 5/3/08. 750ml bottle. Pitch brown hue. Layer of taupe head. Coffee and slight raisins in the aroma. Slight berries and cocoa. Full bodied and crisp yet bitter. Nice yeasty citrus flavor. Typical belgian yeast character. Good sticky malts. Rye bitterness. Tangy and the yeast character is a little too overt. Itís what it is, Belgian styled.

nearbeer (3708) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 750 ml. Three finger head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is charred coffee beans and hickory wood, lightly sweetened with molasses, and some light whiffs of citrus-bready yeast. Flavor is espresso, peppery green hickory, dry cocoa, charred oak, vanilla, and molasses. Some slight bubblegum, brown sugar, and yeast show up a bit later in the glass. This is the least sweet Foreign Stout I have tasted to date, but that isnít a bad thing. Heavy body is smooth and slightly dry.

Holdwine (1077) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 22, 2008
At Savor. Quite an interesting black pour. A dry stout with an upfront belgian yeast capper. Coffee and dark chocolate on the nose and tongue. Very nice.

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 CíBad. 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.

Shared with TMoney99 & MBall581 @ Riversbend in Mainesville. Well crafted beer. This beer brought back memories of De Dolleís Export Stout. Very dark in color, with and aroma of Belgian yeasts. I like stouts and frankly most dark beers and Iím 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.
