BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Dont get me wrong this was tasty in its own right, but I was not wowed by it like I expected to be, and like I have been by most Allagash beers. This was just slightly on the mediocre side for my tastes. Pours a thick bubbly black color, with a surmountable tan head. Comes across very sweet and malty and less expressive on the yeasty side, and turns to be slightly one-dimensional. Very soft and creamy on the palate, and very warming. Decent, but could have been better for the amount of money it costs.

April(?) 2008: Allagash Black is very dark brown to near black in color with an ivory-colored head. It is dry and roasty with Belgian fruits and chocolate, hints of spice, and char. This beer is quite good overall!

RedSox2004 (1798) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Poured tar black with a touch of ruby highlights when held to the light. Noce tan head, a solid film and very nice lacing. Coffee and licorice aromas are most evident, accompanied by a sense of espresso and smokiness. Smokiness is stronger on the tongue, but chocolate and caramel flavors also are featured. Medium to full body, silky texture, and a bitter chocolate lingers in the end.
