Mild woody cocoa aroma , lightly tart. Very smooth and soft on the palate. Mellow roasted flavor with sharp Belgian yeast character in the background. Lingering sweet dark candi flavor. Little hop character and low bitterness. Very well balanced and a pleasure to drink. Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2008
Dark brown with a big tan head. Good retention. Nice aroma of chocolate and toffee. Anise, chocolate, coffee, roastiness, and yeast. Aftertaste of dark chocolate that is somewhat sour. Some dark fruit shows up late. Feels thin at times and rich and creamy at others. A unique stout and a delight to sample. vyvvy (6735) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2008
Pours very dark brown with a caramel hue and a dense dark tan head. The aroma has milk chocolate, roasted malt, anise, other spices and lots of rich creaminess - smells delicious. Medium / full body that has crispness to it due to the sharp carbonatioin. The flavor starts off with char and chocolate, some spiciness and is much drier than expected for something that has candi sugar as an ingredient. There is light chalkiness to the chase. The finish has lots of burnt charred malt with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a real treat. It struck me more as a well crafted stout than a Belgium style stout. Either way it is a great beer.

Draught at Barcade, Brooklyn, New York. A very good stout with a nice consistancy. It was a well-balanced beer with flavours of spicy vanilla and coffee coming through. Quite complex and enjoyable. Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2008
Another very good entry from a brewer that’s rapidly climbing my list. Pours a dense purplish black with a dense, surging head. Lots of roast on the nose. The initial flavor notes are actually kind of sweet (candi sugar?) but that gives way to a really nice mix of roastiness, Belgian floral, unsweetened chocolate, and some woodiness. Moutheel is amazingly smooth and lush. Aftertaste is pleasantly sharp, mild roasty bitterness layered over some sweetness and floral. Definitely recommended.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black with foamy brown head. Aroma is sweet licorice and a little chocolate. Taste is sweet and bready chocolate with a little coffee. I can taste the belgian yeast and sugars. Really interesting beer. It’s a stout with a lot of belgian flavors in there. elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2008
Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is mostly burnt coffee. Tastes of typical allagash yeast, little cocoa, candied sugar, spices. Finishes a little thin on the palate. Hopdup (70) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2008
Pours a dark brown, with a tan coffee frappe type head. It smell of smoke and malt. Very dry and the taste of smoke overwhelms the flavor, sort of like Scotch. Not high on my Stout list. Petrucci914 (921) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours black with a huge frothy mocha head. Aroma is belgian spice, clove, some chocolate and dark roasts. Taste is the same but with an initial focus on the belgian yeast and finished like a stout. Very unique. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2008
Pours a black color with a thick tan frothy head that fades quickly. Aroma is of dark roasted malt, chocolate, light belgian spice and light lcorice. Taste is the same as the aroma with a bit more emphasis on the with the belgian yeast. Smooth and creamy body. Good beer.
