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.

12 oz. bottle poured into Pint glass.

Deep, dark brown color with a dense, lightly tanned head. A fair amount of lacing.

Roasted aroma with caramel, coffee, and chocolates notes - but not real strong.

Medium to full bodied, with a creamy texture and on the medium side of carbonation.

It finished dry, with some roasted bitterness - and I got a bit of coffee and licorice too. Sweet and spice at the end.

Looking forward to trying some more offerings from Allagash. All of there Belgian-style offerings look really good.

Poured from bottle into stout glass

A: During pour, looks dark but translucent, black with light brown highlights. In glass, appears dark. Pours with a nice 2-3 inch head that dissipates to a cap

S: Amazing, very malty, sweet and lightly roasty smell.

T: Similar to smell, very malty. I was actually reminded more of a doppelbock in terms of sweet maltiness than a stout. Not very roasty, no balancing hop bitterness. The overall taste is good, but again doesn't fit the style exactly.

M: Nice, smooth mouthfeel with good carbonation.

O: A very enjoyable beer, on the malty and sweet side. Not really a stout though
