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.

12oz bottle into a hanger 24 barrel roll tulip

Pours a dark cola color with a carbonated light khaki fizzy head

Great combination of strong Belgian ale smell of dark fruit and spices kicked around with dark chocolate and cocoa

Great balance in taste as the stout is strong and heavy without trying to be and the Belgian ale floors finesse in beautifully. The caramel and roasted malt finish seem to work well in unison with a classic abbey ale spice.

Remarkably a great beer
