Allagash Fluxus is a beer of continuous change. Brewed differently every year to commemorate our anniversary, this years Fluxus is a huge Imperial Chocolate Stout. Weighing in at 10.3% ABV, it is one of the strongest beers that Allagash has ever brewed. The brain child of brewer Doug Klippenstein, this beer utilized a unique brewing process that used wort from a smaller brew, as the water for mashing the grain for this brew. Maine-grown barley was used as the base for this grain bill that also included a blend of three roasted malts and oats. Fluxus was appropriately hopped with both US Saaz and Glacier hops. Just before knock out, fifty pounds of Taza roasted Cacao nibs were added to the whirlpool. The result is a thick, sticky stout with tons of both roasted and chocolate flavors, aromas of tobacco and cocoa, and a surprisingly sweet, creamy finish.

As part of our Tribute Series, Allagash proudly donates $1 per bottle sold to the Allagash Pediatric Nurses Scholarship at the Maine Medical Center. This scholarship directly supports the training of nurses in the field of pediatrics.

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. deep brown, tan head. oxidized malt and sour fruit nose. the flavour is bizzare, dirty yeast, sour fruit, minimal malt. this hasnt aged well at all and doesnt even come close to resempling an imperial stout, dissapointing.

Pours an opaque chocolate brown with dark chocolate head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is a mix of almond, dark chocolate and a hint of soy. Flavor is raisin, soy, chocolate. Body is creamy with very active carbonation.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of cocoa nibs, some licorice or anise, almost no roast and no coffee notes. Flavour seems vinegary and plasticy, infected bottle?, with some tart cherry, acetone, vinegar and no sign of the cocoa nibs. Is this right? Seems either infected or poorly put together. Not too enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours clean solid black with small tan head. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, grain. Flavour of soured cherry, chocolate, wood, vanilla, dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee. Throat warmer. Quite abrasive, with a odd flavour i am struggling to locate.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
750mL bottle. Poured deeper brown with a well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet, roasty cocoa and vanilla.. some tart, oaky accents.. some earthy accents.. mixed fruit really deep down. The flavor opened with sour chocolate and oak notes, with warm, sweeter cocoa, vanilla, and lesser coffee behind.. dry earth and leafy bitterness plus fairly bright oaky/metallic sourness around.. finished with more cocoa, a touch of tobacco, metallic sourness, and alcohol warmth. Heavier-bodied with thick carbonation on the palate.. I really enjoyed the chocolate, but the sourness seemed out of place and overly pervasive.
