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.

I am not a big stout fan and I thought Alagash may have a take on it that would empress me. Plus I only paid $6 at Costco. It’s good. Doesn’t really compare to there better beers. Bitter coffee, thin, not a lot of Belgium going on here.

Great every day stout. Aroma like a chocolate covered espresso bean. Taste like a super smooth roasty oat forward stout. Well balanced. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For those who don’t like an overly aggressive stout this the stout for you. ABV is not overpowering makes for a good year round stout. I would buy this again not on my top of the list beers but for sure an easy go to beer.

Such a good beer. I got it in the 750 ml bottle. The 2 Row barley, torrified wheat and oats give is a silkey mouthfeel. The roasted and chocolate malt and the generous portion of dark caramelized candi sugar contribute to the apperance and aroma, and the Belgian yeast combines it all to such a great palate. I will be getting this one again..

As Belgian style stouts go, this is a very well balanced beer. It is a very smooth drink that avoids any type of hoppy finish. If I came came across this at a bar I would for sure order 2 or 3 :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at MacGregor’s Greece. Dark pour with minimal head. Nose is standard - dominated by roasted/toasted malt, a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel starts oily and sweet then turns dry and grainy as it is held in the mouth. Interesting, I liked it. Chocolate malt taste in the palate.
