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.

Had this very tasty beer with a Plate of BBQ at Tennessee Jed’s- Seaford NY. Label is plain, beer pours nicely, strange little bubbles for such a dark beer. Quite surprising was the taste, I expected more Guinness, but there was a crisp sweetness, and soon realized I will need a second.
Highly recommended

I wanted a beer one night while in San Francisco and I saw this beer in a 4 pack and it caught my attention. I decided to give it a shot. The first thing I noticed was the very mild smell, I don't know how to describe the smell but it makes you want to taste it. The taste is one of if not the best stout I have ever tasted. It has an amazing flavor while still being very light and mild (allot of dark beers make you feel like you just ate a meal). I would recommend this stout/beer for anyone who enjoys a flavorful beer. If you aren't a fan of darker beers trust me when I say give this one a chance it combines the best aspects of beers, Dark: Great Flavor without being bitter like allot of darker beers, Lighter: Very light with a mild taste that makes you want to keep drinking it.

I have for sure found my new favorite beer.

I never feel like Allagash goes wrong for me. Had on tap at the Yard House which is a great place for my favorite hobby. Poured into a goblet. Fresh keg they told me. Keg must have been made by a midget as the pour was very short. I will look the other way. Sometimes the one you love disappoints you. Back to the beer. Smells chocolate my and malty, and has a deep brown color. This is a great beer...not overly heavy. Has a sweet cocoa taste but a nice carbonated fresh drink. Very great. Kudos...wish I had more...tears....
