Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is bourbon forward...not hot...roasty and vanilla notes too. Flavor follows suit...definite bourbon, lt vanilla, roasty and dark fruit notes...just a touch of oak. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bourbon/vanilla/oak and dry and roasty.

32oz Growler from Beverage World. Served at around cellar temperature.

Pour black with some red highlights under light and a small light brown head that leaves some lacing and recedes to a wispy cap and ring.

Aroma features warm bourbon notes, vanilla and oak, brown sugar, dark fruits, coffee, some chocolate, roasted malts. Very good strength.

Flavor features vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark fruits, dark chocolate, coffee, Belgian yeast esters, some sweetness, minimal bitterness, alcohol is pretty well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation.

I like this. I’ve enjoyed the regular Allagash Black and this adds a nice layer to an already good beer. The bourbon isn’t overpowering, mixed in very nicely with the nice balance of a roasty Stout and Belgian Ale.

Draft. Nice lacing. Upfront yet not overbearing bourbon aroma. Smooth taste. Not thick. Bourbon is prevalent throughout. One of my favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep black color with a small tan head and considerable lacing. Huge aroma of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, and some raisins. Flavor was very high on sweetness with dark fruits and a bourbon flavored finish slightly dry.

Bacterial (1197) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Draft at ChurchKey in DC. Dark pour with a tan head, big lacing. Nose is oaky, smokey and a hint of bourbon. Mouthfeel is nice, smokiness continues with some fun Belgian spice and just a hint of bourbon. Quite good!

(draught) cloudy deep brown, creamy fine tan head. Nose of raisin, cream, light bourbon and vanilla. Taste of banana, light whiskey, vanilla, nutty, alcohol. Medium carbonation, tasting some alcohol on the palate. Decent but wish it was richer or smoother.

On tap @ Stag’s Head. Deep brown/black with a small frothy tan head and notable lacing. Huge aroma of bourbon, plum, vanilla, and roasted malt. Taste is similar with notes of bakers chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, and slight booziness. Nice creamy mouthfeel and dry slightly bitter finish.
