Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Black is a Belgian style stout brewed with 2 Row barley, torrified wheat, oats, both roasted and chocolate malt and a generous portion of dark caramelized candi sugar. The silky mouth feel is a great balance to the roasted character, coffee and dark chocolate notes expressed throughout this beer.

Very smooth, drank it fairly quickly. Taste like almost nothing except belgian hops. I tasted no fruits nor sugars or anything really. Rather bland but very smooth. I sure felt it after drinking it

Bottled on 03/16/2012. Not usually a huge fan of this one but the age seemed to give it some drinkability. Nice start to my cellaring journey

Pours the darkest brown with cola hues and a mocha head of foam. Nose is malty nutty, rich fruity with orange zest, orange blossom honey. Just lovely malt with a touch of honey and spice. Fruit and perfume like fruits and nuts, wheat. Light subtle sweet cocoa, earthy complex malts, dry yeast. Twigs and fruit. Biscuity malt, faint char, a bit of burnt wood. Some kind of bright herbal hop spice. Cheerful hop bitter in a dry pleasant finish. Creamy oats. Lustrous mouthfeel with a malty depth. Bubbly light with a light crisp middle. Dry bitter finish with some sweet caramel to lie underneath.
