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

Super dark mahogany brown bording on opaque with a thick brown head. Aroma is definitely belgian yeast - spicy, with some roasted dark grains, and licorice notes in the back. Flavor is a bit strange at first - almost like a clash of the flavors - roasted granis, astringency, sweet fruity phenols and a funky kind of dry finish. Interesting, but not hight on my list of must-have beers.

black pour with a thick light tan head. Dark Roasty malt, chocolate and a dark fruit tang in the aroma. First impression is alcohol, with some chocolate roast aftertones. Little too carbonated, prickly in the mouth as opposed to silky. Dry, woody finish. a bit thin. Overall decent.

Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma of smokey malt. Taste is smoke and roasted malt. Thin mouthfeel. Very dry finish. I like a lot of Allagash beers, but this was not very good. Kind of boring.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Pours a visibly effervecent opaque black with an airy, puffy beige head that retains very well. The nose is full of rich espresso notes, dark chocolate, dust, some metallic flavours, smoke and mild caramel. The flavour is identical to the aroma with the addition of some citric tones. It is wonderfully roasty and aromatic. The finish is very dry. The mouthfeel is prickly, medium bodied, and has a nice long palate duration.

pours a beautiful large puffy tan head. color is a deep dark black . aroma contains hints of espresso and toasty malts , caramel and a very subtle metallic hint. This beer is great and tastes much like it smells. hints of coffee, toffee, toasted malts, with great smoky hints.

A little thin for a stout but overall very good. Not quite opaque with some ruby highlights peeking through. Roasted taste with chocolate and some coffee.

Bottle. Dad picked me up another one when he was in Maine, so I decided to go on and open my own bottle. Wow! Typical Allagsh here - no disappointments. I have been waiting for this day for years - my favoirte brewer to brew a stout. Pops off and instantly fills up the air with some coffee and chocolate smells. Smell also has plenty of roasted malts, and some sweet smells as well. Has that typical Allagash smell that seems to either be love or hate - pretty sure it is their yeast. The taste has that awesome signature Allagash flavor that I expect with every beer they brew. Full flavored, full bodied, roasted, full of chocolate, rich. Just an amazing foreign stout - the best I have ever had. An awesome stout for those people who are maybe still kind of shy of them. Fucking awesome beer! I could be partial since this is my favorite brewer..... but then again, maybe not.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin head that settled to a ring. Aroma of some sweet chocolate and roasted malt. The flavors were pretty similar with more light chocolate, roast, and a pleasant moderate malty sweetness. Smooth carbonation, medium body.

PIB, tap... Poured deep, dark brown with amber highlights and a thin, off-white head. Aroma of sweet chocolate. Flavors are pretty mellow, a chocolate emphasis and toasted malt. But not really above the bar like I’d expect from Allagash. Finishes with smoked malt.
