Frax (60) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle, packaged on 2/17/16. Pours an extremely dark brown with a slight tan head, moderate lacing. Burnt chocolate aroma, roasted coffee notes. Full bodied, velvety mouthfeel with a lightly bitter, tongue numbing finish. Excellent. sinfull (1655) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Dark brown almost black in color. Nice , tanned head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and dark fruits . Moderate sweetness in taste with distinct hoppy notes at the end. I felt slight notes of Belgian yeast in it . Close to dry finish. Delicious beer. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Nice black pour with almost no head. Smells of chocolate/coffee/malts. Big flavor of bittersweet chocolate and a little smoke. Nickls (2535) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Tap. Mostly black with ruby edges, with a light tan head. Getting plum, fig, light roasted maltiness, some chocolate as well. Thinner to medium body. Pretty solid. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2016

beer-yum (1714) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 14, 2016
Black with a small tan head. Aroma is soft roasted malts, light coffee, some licorice, chocolate, notes of prunes and spices. Taste is light sweet malty and fruity, soft roasted coffee with a smooth bitter finish. Medium bodied, slight creamy texture, soft carbonation.
Restrained aroma in a brown black pour. An interesting combination of the best of Belgium - beer and chocolate - that is deliciously different. Andrew196 (1903) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2016
Holy crap....this is great. Lots going on here. Dark dark brown, beige head. Dark fruit, coffee, caramel, toffee on the nose. More hop bitterness and Belgian yeast on the tongue...notes of milk chocolate too. Hybrid type beers often go horribly wrong....this is quite the opposite, well done! gregwilsonstl (2505) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Strangely Allagash Black is actually brown. Stick head/lacing. Brown sugar. Quite yeasty. Crusty toast. Hints of coffee. Dry. Thx jow. mathieuc (3995) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a small beige head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of roasted malt and slight dark fruits. Taste is of more dark fruits and light roasted malt. Atypical stout to me but maybe all foreign stouts were like that? Light sweetness in the finish. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. A fair stout but a bit weak by Allagash’s standard.

Bottle - 12oz. Pours an opaque black body with a diminishing off-white foamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its robust, well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries roasted coffee, oaky, and some black pepper notes. Ends with a long, sharp bitter/roasty finish. Well done.
