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.

A: Very dark with large beige head. Good appearance.

S: Raisin y fruity aromas hits my nose first and most prominent. Slight roast notes are also present. I'm a fan of the nose on well executed Belgian stouts e.g Black Albert.

T: Fruit notes and roasty notes come through in the taste. I also pick up a tiny hint of hops. Good tasting but not as complex as a Black Albert.

M: Medium body with a fairly high level of carbonation.

O: Nice flavors, high carbonation and pleasing mouthfeel.

A good example of a Belgian stout. It's not quite up there with what I consider the upper echelon of the breed (e.g. Black Albert) but it's a tasty beer that's priced well.
