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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2011
A Mes rate. Bottle that Sim got when she was in Boston last year.
Murky opaque deep dark brown with a playful beige head. Massive fruit, really floral in a mead like way, in fact a distinct honey character, epic Belgian yeasty balls, load of length and character. Just bloody brilliant. Slightly too boozy but its quickly brushed aside by what I can only describe as a perfumed sweetness. Superb development of bitter, sweet, honey and bitter in the finish. This reminds me SO much of Thornbridge Bracia and for that alone it is thoroughly lovable. An outstanding beer if you ask me.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 19, 2011
Allagash Fluxus Pours black with a reddish edge. Big head with tons of lacing and good retention. Aroma is roasty with some perfumy bourbon and a slightly medicine aroma. Nuts abound on the nose. Flavor has hints of red wine with a shit ton of bubbles. Boozy and kind of weird. Some non-descript cheminess related to the medicine aroma . Got better as it warmed, but not very stout like. Odd, and not a repeat.

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2011
On draft at Union Jacks pours dark brown with tan head. Almost no aroma to speak of. Weak flavors of lemon, vinegar, and paint thinner with an astringent finish. Did not care for this at all and could not detect any chocolate aroma or flavoring.

Bottle shared by hallinghansen at plovmand tasting and one with courtesy of Paps, thanks guys! Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, hay, coffee and liquorice. Flavour is similar with the addition of alcohol. It has a long roasted and liquorice finish with subdued bitter notes. Did expect some more power..

jesperhammer (4707) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2011
29-MAR-2011, bottle @Paps tasting. Black, dark brown head. Really fine coffee and chocolate. Nice roasted taste, but best part is the mouthfeel. Really full, really creamy. Fantastic stout.

chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2011
On tap into a tulip at the Publican...Dark black pour with a nice tan head that has good retention and lacing...Malty aroma of cocoa nibs, roasted malts, and a little cream...Taste is more sweet than bitter making this a super easy to drink cocoa stout. A wonderful full sticky feel for this easy drinker. Finally a non-sour Allagash brew that is worth drinking although a bit pricey.
