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.

I think this is my frost Belgian Strong Dark Ale and I really enjoyed it. A nice marriage of dark roasty stout flavors and dark fruit and yeasty Belgian flavors. It got better and better as it warmed. yb

Good color and foam. I had it slightly chilled to start and it improved with warming. Good deep Flavor with expected notes of chocolate and coffee with a slight tartness in the aftertaste.
