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.

This is a solid tasty beer. An oak, coffee aftertaste. This beer goes down easy, smooth. Nothing bad here. A drinkable refreshingly stout. A little carbonation. Nothing overpowering.

The front of this beer was really fantastic. The yeast strain they use, plays very nicely with the roasty notes and mouth feel is great. Then something goes completely wrong. The far back end/lingering flavor I can only think of one word to describe: sewer. There is a dirty/rank flavor that wasn't completely overpowering, but definitely present enough to ruin the beer. The other people that I shared the bottle with didnt seem to detect it so I am guessing it is something specific to my palate that just didnt sit right.

Very tasty, best when it warms up and the Belgian yeast profile comes forward. I'll get this again.
