Malty chocolate for the scent. Nice deep rich dark black color. Taste is of chocolate and barley just like its brewed. Full body with medium carbonation. This could be my next goto stout. Not a big allagash fan even though Im from Maine. This is one of your best brews.

Not bad for a Belgian. I don't like the flavor of Belgian yeast, so it's a little tough to get past that. However, the chocolatey malt is very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a billowing tan head. Malty and somewhat metallic smell. Big roasty malt up front and throughout with a bit of heat at the end. Okay stout, much better when Ive had it on tap.

boto (2143) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Draught @ Black Eyed Sallys: This one pours a fairly opaque black color. There was just a bit of a tan head that left a little lacing. Good nose. Some chocolate, roasted malts, breadiness. The taste is very good. Belgian ale meets stout. Chocolate, some roast, breadines, faint dark fruits, maybe a hint of raisin.

Dark brown with a minimal beige head. Aroma is chocolate, brown sugar, and toffee. Taste is sweet with some molasses, toffee, and caramel. Like a liquid Heath Bar. Hellz yeah. Overall very tasty.

migwell (283) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle into a Belgian ale glass. Roasty, yeasty aroma. Very dark brown appearance. This stout has quite a bit of complexity, with nothing in the mix being too overwhelming. The balance of yeast, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and sugar flavor is subtle and well done. Medium body with a creamy mouth feel and a bit of a bitter coffee finish. A decent brew.

Very dark brown to black color, light brown head - Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, maybde some hints of ash, rather earthy hops - Taste is medium to heavily bitter - medium to full body, rather creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation - long and bitter finish. Nice.

A true crossover brew, this offering from Allagash features both stout and Belgian aspects, with a strong roasted coffee appearance and flavor, along with a sweet Belgian yeast contrast. Some chocolate cocoa flavors as well. Mouthfeel is only an average smoothness with a slightly bitter roasty finish. I found the flavor profile exceptional but everything else is just par for the course.!Decent and different, seems like it has weaker points but a distinguished beer overall.
