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.

Served in a tulip glass

A - It is a ruddy brown color with amber highlights. It has about an inch of tan head.

S - I smell some cocoa and chocolate. I get an off scent too. It's a little skunk and alcohol.

T - The taste is of milk chocolate and cocoa. I get an off taste, too.

M - Moderate

O - I wanted to love this beer. I have liked Allagash since I discovered them in Portland, ME a few years ago on vacation. This beer is okay, but I don't love it.
