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.

Wonderful stout but I did get the metallic after-taste. Packaging is eye catching with twisted wire and captured cork. Nice touch. The label indicated "pour into your favorite glass" which is a first for me but not an issue since I found this while travelling. Definitely one I will have again.

Poured into oversized wine glass

A: Pours a deep brown/black with hints of chocolate brown when held to light. Thin, quickly dissipating khaki head.

S: Roasted malt and chocolate with hints of funky, musty aromas. Notes of caramel and toffee as well.

T: Dark fruit and candi sugar intertwines with dark chocolate and black coffee. Toffee and smoky flavors are present, but subtle. Roasty bitterness lasts through the finish.

M: Medium to slighty-viscous body with moderate carbonation.

O: Allagash puts a tasty twist of the stout here with its strong Belgian overtones. I think this beer is a classic in its own right, along with Allagash White. Anyone who is a fan of either stouts or Belgian beer should try this.
