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.

Beer bottled in May 2014, enjoyed on January 23, 2015.

This beer poured a lovely black (go figure) with a frothy and thick three finger head that was sticky and persistent.

The smell was interesting...all the features of a stout; the roasts, some coffee and perhaps a touch of cocoa BUT there were also a lot of features of a Belgian dubbel present; yeast, dark fruits, some candi.

Taste carried through this mysterious mix; up front was the coffee and roast and as the beer warmed it was joined by cocoa. But the back end was pure Belgian. Candi, yeast and dark fruits sneak in.

The feel was medium bodied and good carbonation. This is an easy drinking sipper.

Overall, color me impressed. Getting the characteristics of two of my favorite styles together in one beer made me quite happy. This is an easy beer to enjoy on a cool evening.
