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

(12-oz bottle) A nice combination of roasted malts with Belgian yeast. Sophisticated flavor without intensity. Notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee without overwhelming the quality of malt blends and yeast. Very smooth palate. A nice winter choice.

Taste is chocolate, brown sugar, and spicy Belgian yeast, which then fades into a coffee finish. Good.

Black dark black pour with tan head. Smell of dark roast and some Belgian beer type spices. Flavor if dark roast with a Belgian yeast finish.

Old rating. Dark brown pour. Slight smoke, Belgian, chocolate, spices, little thin and bubbly for such a dark beer.

Allagash’s stout offering is an outlier in the style. It’s smokey, yet it retains some of that familiar spiciness that Allagash borrows from Belgian counterparts. Pours black on black with a beautiful, pillowy head. One of my favorite Allagash brews and is 100% recommended to fans of Belgian beers and stouts.

Pretty good aromas of cocoa and coffee. Jet black with big foam head. Taste of coffee and cocoa as well good rich breadlike finish.

rumproasts (3576) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2015
bottle. Near black with one finger head. Surprisingly thin pour for a stout, but has plenty of chocolate malt flavor and light belgian yeast. Decently complex. Would have this again.

mfhennig (104) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Pours black, nice tan head. Aroma of coffee and licorice. Tastes of roast coffee and spice. Smooth creamy texture, nicely carbonated. A very pleasant surprise as I am not a big fan of Belgian style beers.

AdamJackson (3341) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Dark brown to black with a 1 finger head. Very roasty aroma, sweet, coffee, creamy milk like aroma. Much too sweet for me. Coffee, cream, milk, roasted taste, some burnt sugars.

Poured from a bottle black with a sandy colored head. Aroma is of alcohol and slight coffee. Light and somewhat bubbly on the tongue, first hint is of coffee finishing with chocolate and malt.

Chalumeaux (222) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Poured from bottle black with brown foamy head. Aromas of belgian yeast coffee and chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate and cocoa with a smooth grain feel slightly bitter at the end. A drinkable but not memorable beer.
