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.

750mL (batch 25) into a chalice. Pours a deep dark brown w/ a 2-finger beige head.

Aroma is chocolate, dark roasted malt, hints of molasses, licorice, nuts & fruit.

Taste follows nose. Dark bitter roasted malt. Rich & complex - but never dense or thick. This beer has some breathing room, but it's not thin. Just right.

Mouthfeel is smooth and balanced, creamy. Clean dry finish.

Overall another really good Allagash beer. Not sure I agree w/ the Belgian strong dark ale classification, seems more like just a stout to me. But a tasty, well-crafted beer in any case.
