3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep black with a thick brown head that lingers. Aroma is less estery than I had expected and I get bakers chocolate, hints of toffee and slight french roast coffee. Taste is sweet with the esters presenting a slight spice on the tongue of cinnamon. Palate is interesting as the more typical belgian carbonation levels make this quite drinkable. Overall a good beer but not quite the match I hoped it would be.

Purchased at Shaw’s in Auburn, Maine. Pours a dark brown colour with a big frothy beige head, good retention and some lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and candy yeast. Milder tasting but with a nice balance between bitterness, sweetness and roastiness. Goes down nicely.

Pours a translucent brown (cola color). A bit of a funky nose - malt, cola, but overall somewhat unpleasant. Taste is pretty good, though - some chocolate, licorice. Somewhat light bodied. Maybe a little too much carbonation. Pretty good.

Awesome American stout. Light aroma of roast grains, and chocolate. Slick, oily mouth feel. Taste blends it all together, very mild coffee bitterness at the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a good beer pouring quite nearly black with ample head fading to just lingering around the edges with a smear in the middle. Good carbonation when held to a bright light.
A wiff of roasted malt can be smelled along with a hint of alcohol warming.
Tastes like a stoudt with roasted malt, sweet. Can also taste chocolate and coffee tones. Dry at finish, mouth puckering.
Smooth with a thick mouthfeel alcohol warming at the end that tickles the tongue and lips.
Over all this is a very drinkable beer. I wish I had another but I don’t.

Not worth the bottle price, but it is still cool to be able to try a Belgian Style Stout.

My absolute favorite stout, hands down. I was first introduced to this beer by a bartender in Chicago, and this is beer is the reason I love Allagash. It’s not perfect, but damn it’s good.
