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 have heard Allagash makes some outstanding beers, so I saw this and decided to give it a try. It had a small creamy looking head, about one finger, that disappeared pretty quickly. I picked up on a chocolate and toffee smell, and a chocolate taste and a very present sweetness that lingered for awhile afterwards. I thought this beer was pretty decent, but the sweetness was a bit much for my taste, but it was worth it.

Color deep brown, suggesting amber. Nose with a bit of bitterness, no noticeable hops. Taste has chocolate and coffee, some faint spiciness and stronger sweetness with the bitter. Round and filling in the mouth. Good lingering finish of bitterness.

Very nicely done variation on Stout theme...
