4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A Mes rate. Bottle that Sim got when she was in Boston last year.
Murky opaque deep dark brown with a playful beige head. Massive fruit, really floral in a mead like way, in fact a distinct honey character, epic Belgian yeasty balls, load of length and character. Just bloody brilliant. Slightly too boozy but it’s quickly brushed aside by what I can only describe as a perfumed sweetness. Superb development of bitter, sweet, honey and bitter in the finish. This reminds me SO much of Thornbridge Bracia and for that alone it is thoroughly lovable. An outstanding beer if you ask me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with a reddish edge. Big head with tons of lacing and good retention. Aroma is roasty with some perfumy bourbon and a slightly medicine aroma. Nuts abound on the nose. Flavor has hints of red wine with a shit ton of bubbles. Boozy and kind of weird. Some non-descript cheminess related to the medicine aroma . Got better as it warmed, but not very stout like. Odd, and not a repeat.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at Union Jack’s pours dark brown with tan head. Almost no aroma to speak of. Weak flavors of lemon, vinegar, and paint thinner with an astringent finish. Did not care for this at all and could not detect any chocolate aroma or flavoring.

Bottle shared by hallinghansen at plovmand tasting and one with courtesy of Papsø, thanks guys!
Pours dark brown with a tan head.
Aroma is roasted malt, hay, coffee and liquorice.
Flavour is similar with the addition of alcohol.
It has a long roasted and liquorice finish with subdued bitter notes.
Did expect some more power..

Black, dark brown head.
Really fine coffee and chocolate.
Nice roasted taste, but best part is the mouthfeel. Really full, really creamy. Fantastic stout.

On tap into a tulip at the Publican...Dark black pour with a nice tan head that has good retention and lacing...Malty aroma of cocoa nibs, roasted malts, and a little cream...Taste is more sweet than bitter making this a super easy to drink cocoa stout. A wonderful full sticky feel for this easy drinker.
Finally a non-sour Allagash brew that is worth drinking although a bit pricey.
