It's a pretty expensive pint and a bit too sour for my taste. However, it certainly had a kick to it that'll make you feeling good quickly.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bière brune, presque noire, aux reflets rougeâtres. La mousse est abondante et quasi-crémeuse. Le nez est boisé et il laisse croire à quelques fruits rouges qui auraient pu croître ici et là. En bouche, l’entrée est fumée, peu pétillante, riche et veloutée. L’arrière-goût laisse un peu trop d’acidité, mais sinon c’est nickel (ou zinc, selon tes préférences de matériau)...

Aroma is surprisingly weak but it has a good dark pour w/ a tan head that leaves some lacing. The taste is fairly bland & stunningly uninteresting. It has a somewhat bitter taste w/ some dark fruit. Pretty disappointing!

On draft at 2 Stones Pub. Deep chestnut brown. Woody aroma. Deep roasty flavor, not as much Belgian twang as expected. Decent beer

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs and Liquor: Poured a dark brown color with a gentle foamed head which ends up dying down. There is a mixture of aromas with the roasted malt and chocolate playing out first then leading to spicy yeast with a minor background of sourness. The flavor is robust and complex and taste as though there is bits of milk chocolate in the flavor along with yeast that made me ponder the taste of a German dunkelweizen, but it most certainly is a Belgian yeast due to the spiciness and heat involved. This barrel aged ale covers up the wood flavor a lot and hides it quite well making me have to dig it out in my palate. Also, brings some heat but considering how dark it is, makes it that much easier to sip away at. This was a very enjoyable ale but what is with the prices of almost any bottle of Allagash.
