Tasted at brewery. Clear and deep brown, brownish and fine creamy head. Aroma is dark and toasted, it smells bitter from malt. The flavor lingers, chocolate and hops mingle to make it drinkable. Body is fairly thin (reminds me of Guinness) but full of flavor. Yay beer! deyholla (11503) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2009
On tap at Ashley’s. Poured black with a light brown head. Aroma was full of roasted malts and a sweet chocolate undertone. Flavor began full of roasted malts, then a sweet dark candy flavor led out to the finish. Seemed a bit like a sweet stout. can8ianben (1538) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Dark caramel color with a thin white head. Strong licorice flavor compliments the brown sugar aroma. Really different than anything else I’ve had. BroSpud (2164) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Julio’s Belgian Beer Festival. Sample.Although closer to a stout than a belgian ale, the belgian yeast definitely makes this one interesting. A bit on the thin side though it does pack some flavor. kopher (593) - New York, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Batch #9. pours a somewhat thin black with small rocky tan head. sweet roasty aroma -- chocolate milk and cookies, with a slight sour note underneath.
very milk chocolatey with burnt malt and lots of toasted rice. there’s a hint of fruityness and yeast. very mild. silky smooth but somewhat thin and maybe too much carbonation.

Enjoyed on tap at Ashley’s. Satisfying, its black yes with off-white head and its very lacey. A roasted stout aroma, medium mouthfeel. Coffee and roast. Aggressive carbonation but also good drinkability. PorterPounder (7894) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 750 ml caged corked bottle. Pitch black pour with a quickly fading spritzy khaki colored head. Slightly fruity aroma (plums?) with some chocolate accents. Flavor is on the sweet end of the spectrum with some chocolate, a hint of bitter coffee, some licorice and a finish of marshmallows. Actually, this reminds me more of a Schwarz than a Foreign Stout. Mouthfeel - silky - about right for this type of stout. Not disappointed - just expected a tad more. LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle from City Market Vermont.The color is a nice black with a dark beige head. The aroma is of chocolat. The taste is of dry malt sweet caramel chocolat and spicies.Very very nice. BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Don’t get me wrong this was tasty in it’s 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. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2009
