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.

Pours an opaque black with a thick tan head. It fizzes away fairly quick leaving a little bit of lacing.

Smells of spicy yeast, light roast, and some slight coffee.

The taste is very similar to the smell, spicy yeast, roasted malts and coffee flavors. It leaves a little bit of bitterness on the back of the tongue..just to let you know its still there. Nothing is too overpowering though. Its an extremely well balanced beer.

It's pretty carbonated, filling your mouth quickly. It leaves your mouth on the oily side then finishes dry.

Another phenomenal Belgian from Allagash. Easy drinking, well balanced, and great with a chocolate dessert.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black in color. Creamy, but somewhat thin tan head. Smells of cocoa powder. Taste begins with some sweet caramel, followed by some tart, herbal flavor, then some coffee, and finishing with a smokey, resiny finish. Mouthfeel is rich. Overall a good beer, though a bit pricey for my liking considering how much i liked it.

Batch 35 poured into Konings hoeven snifter. Deep black with subtle ruby appearing around the edges. Dark candi sugar on the nose, that distictive belgian note mixed with figgy, carmalized notes and some dark rum. The taste follows soft and nondescript allowing the flavors from the nose to flow over the tongue. If you really rough it up there's a sour note from the burnt candi sugar. What really stands out about this beer is the soft mouthfeel rolling smoothly to an easy finish with no harsh carbination or alcohol burn despite the lingering head.
