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.

12oz acquired locally, enjoyed from a allagash 49cl glass.

a - none more black, frothy foamy off white head that hung out for the full adventure and left milkshake like lace.

s - nose is fairly nutty with a nice roast chocolate.

t/m/o - opens up with deliciousness...I mean this beer kills it. Great roasted chocolate with a fairly forward nuttiness. Almost tastes like a peanut butter beer...must be the Belgian sufpgars and the hopping (this is a fairly fresh bottle as I understand it). Super easy drinking while having the body of an oatmeal stout. Really good. Belgian stout indeed!

Deep black color with a one finger thick beige-caramel head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of licorice, chocolate, dark fruits, herbs and lots of Belgian yeast.
Unique taste mix with notes of chocolate, flowers, oatmeal, licorice, caramels, tobacco, nuts and Brazilian Jabuticaba. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness and a long lasting roasted note.
Medium silky body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% is absent.
Original beer, it felt to me like a mix between a Belgian IPA and an Oatmeal stout. A bit sweet, though within style.
