32oz Growler from Beverage World. Served at around cellar temperature.
Pour black with some red highlights under light and a small light brown head that leaves some lacing and recedes to a wispy cap and ring.
Aroma features warm bourbon notes, vanilla and oak, brown sugar, dark fruits, coffee, some chocolate, roasted malts. Very good strength.
Flavor features vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark fruits, dark chocolate, coffee, Belgian yeast esters, some sweetness, minimal bitterness, alcohol is pretty well hidden.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation.
I like this. I’ve enjoyed the regular Allagash Black and this adds a nice layer to an already good beer. The bourbon isn’t overpowering, mixed in very nicely with the nice balance of a roasty Stout and Belgian Ale.
Serving type: growler
