maslupulos (39) - North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2013
Carbonated deep brown pour with bubbly, creamy head. Lots of smells waft out the glass; licorice, chocolate, fresh-baked bread, and a little smoke. Really complex taste. Starts with a hit of dark roasted coffee and adds notes of bitter chocolate, candied sugar, caramel, and slight belgian esters. A bitter piney hop presence really lets on during the finish, much more so than I would have expected. Great mixture of a stout with a dark belgian. Really awesome beer, but what else would you expect from Allagash.

commonmac (1093) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Tap pour at Blaze in Bar Harbor, ME. Pint glass. Black with nearly tan head. Half finger. Aroma of dark fruit blended with roasted nuttiness. Hints of smoke and chocolate as well. Taste reminds me of a Belgian dubbel combining forces with a traditional stout. There is a definite tart, Belgian raisin and plum influence. Dark chocolate bitterness comes in at the end. Assertive aftertaste that lingers. Very enjoyable beer. Bet on black.

PanMarek (301) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Proper stout nose, rich, roasted malts, dark coffee and a little yeast. Dark brown, opaque with tan foam. The taste is roasted malt and some coffee and chocolate come through with some moderate flavors of bread and yeast. Finishes with malty darkness. Overall very smooth and drinkable. Medium - heavy body with low - moderate fizz. Sampled at Wurst Party Ever 7 November 2015.

Deep reddish black pour that lets some light through. Big coffee, some chocolate, licorice, roasted malts on nose. Flavor carries same as aroma with flavors trading prominence through finish - has a pleasant boozy backbone. Some nuttiness and a nice bitter finish. Medium and slick mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Bottle. Pours black with little head. Aroma is mild but nice, very roasty, caramel, dark malts. Flavour is quite complex, lots of dark malts, with a sweetish, bitter finish. Nice! Cant really sense the Belgian flavours....
