COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash Fluxus is a beer of continuous change. Brewed differently every year to commemorate our anniversary, this year’s Fluxus is a huge Imperial Chocolate Stout. Weighing in at 10.3% ABV, it is one of the strongest beers that Allagash has ever brewed. The brain child of brewer Doug Klippenstein, this beer utilized a unique brewing process that used wort from a smaller brew, as the “water” for mashing the grain for this brew. Maine-grown barley was used as the base for this grain bill that also included a blend of three roasted malts and oats. Fluxus was appropriately hopped with both US Saaz and Glacier hops. Just before knock out, fifty pounds of Taza roasted Cacao nibs were added to the whirlpool. The result is a thick, sticky stout with tons of both roasted and chocolate flavors, aromas of tobacco and cocoa, and a surprisingly sweet, creamy finish.

As part of our Tribute Series, Allagash proudly donates $1 per bottle sold to the Allagash Pediatric Nurses Scholarship at the Maine Medical Center. This scholarship directly supports the training of nurses in the field of pediatrics.

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
750 c&c from South Bay Drugs. Pours black with a 3 finger really dark tan foamy head. Aromas of darker chocolate and I think treacle. Somewhat sticky with foamy, but not strong, carbonation. Flavor is gritty dark chocolate. It’s not really very sweet, so the chocolate really comes through. There’s a lot of bitter around tongue sides. The chocolate is strong in the finish. Drinks way too easy. In the end I’d say it isn’t sweet.
