Best of the tasting as far as I can tell, tho I did rate some from that tasting better. From draft, I thought this was a black IPA but the rep said it was a dark belgian (seems right for Allagash). Medium heavy body with caramel, coffee, chocolate, roasted influences. Flower and herb hops notes. Kinda smoky in a way. Very well done and a great winter warmer at 7.5%
Served on draft. Slight head with a dark tone. Immediate malt taste of smoke and butterscotch. Aftertaste is where the Belgian yeast kicks in. A highly drinkable, flavorful ale. Enjoy with a friend on a cool fall evening. Kleg (379) - The Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Draft at Bar Harbor Beerworks in Bar Harbor, Maine. This is a stout? Too much of a Belgian yeast flavor that I don't like. jsnicholas (663) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2017
Bottle (12oz). Strong smokey and coffee tasting stout. Maybe a little chocolate. Medium carbonation. kevinsenn (2263) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2017
On tap. Malty raisin aroma. Chocolate, raisin, toffee, and other sweet treats in the taste with a decent bitter bite. Solid. ajnepple (6978) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2017
12 oz single bottle from Total Wine & More - Laguna Hills. Deep reddish brown colored and clear in appearance with a tan head. Aroma of flavor of black licorice, fruity esters, molasses, light chocolate and hints of candy sugar, coffee and Belgian yeast. A little intense at first, but much better as it warms. An interesting stout overall.

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Heerlijke Belgium-style stout: gerookte mout, koffie en hop, licht rokerig. Prima stout/dark ale Bacchus66 (877) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2017
12oz bottle. Very dark brown, beige head reduces to a thin collar. Enticing aroma of fresh roasted coffee, hints of cocoa. Flavors start with coffe then become more chocolate toward the medium, warming finish. mike67 (1244) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, creamy, beige head, nice lacing and lovely carbonation. Aroma is of herbal hops, toasted malt and coffee. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is of toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and bittersweet. Overall good brew. gripweed57 (2794) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Growler from Monroe Super Buy Rite in Englishtown, NJ. Translucent cola brown color is topped by a large frothy tan head. Faint roasted malt nose hints at ash and charcoal. First sip yields sweet roasted malt flavor that touches on coffee and chocolate. Picking up notes of dark candi sugar, cocoa, tobacco, raisins, burnt wood and magnolia leaves. Yeasty, smoky, Belgian funky yeasty notes in finish. Sweet, dark and intriguing. Delicious and soulful. kevinator63 (36) - California, USA - APR 11, 2017
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Lovely ebony black stout. Silky on the tongue, notes of smoke, coffee, sweet chocolate and caramel. One of the sweeter stouts I?ve had. Overall, it?s good, with everything I enjoy about a good, black stout. From a bottle gifted by a friend. I?ll pick it up when I see it again.
