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

On Draft at Ballydoyle Bloomingdale. This beer is great, they bill it is a belgian style stout, not sure if that is what i would call it. Dark black in color, yet very clear. It drinks a lot lighter than i was expecting. Nice head out of the draft and into an allagash glass. I get some of the chocolate and roasted notes, very hard to describe, but it is the best beer i have had this year so far for sure.

Aroma is of malt and slight hops. A little mollasses and oats. Full and silky on the plate, the flavor is reminiscent of coffee with yeast. I love it!

Cybercat (3512) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Comes out of the tap a deep opaque sable with a fairly thick tan head - very appetizing. Aroma is like well-roasted mocha and has just a hint of caramel. Flavor is rich and ’’stouty’’ - smoky with strong coffee and unsweetened chocolate components - and has just a touch of sweetness. Finish is smooth and very pleasing. A winner!

Sweet, milky, chocolatey. Smooth. Wheat undertones. Not too heavy, but velvety.

caramel, bread, chocolate, nuts, toast, roasty, amber, red, brown, black, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, umami, full body, creamy, thick feel, lively. A stout that comes as close to perfect as you can get. The only thing stopping it is that it just doesn’t quite have the mouthfeel that a dark brew should, as if they held back giving it that motor oil feel. Do not be fooled though. This beer is top notch. Pair this with a good brat on a cold day.

Pours dark w/ a full lasting head and superb lacing. Aromas of cocoa and dark fruit. Medium nectar w/ creamy, expansive residual effers. Beautifully balanced flavors of cocoa and darkfruit intermingle w/ a moderate roast component. A striking hop profile bitters this to a classic level. The finish lingers. One awesome brew!

Pours a hazy darker brown with very little head. Smells like roasted coffee. Palate is a little light with mild carbonation. Taste is roasted malt, sweet with a ice yeasty profile and subtle hop at the end. Unbelievable beer. Truly unbelievable beer that is a little rare in its style and therefore unappreciated. Way to go allagash!
