BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States
allagash.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.30%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Weighing in at 10.3% ABV, it is one of the strongest beers that Allagash has ever brewed. This beer utilized a unique brewing process that used wort from a smaller brew, as the "water" for mashing the grain for this brew. Maine grown barley was used as the base for this grain bill that also included a blend of three roasted malts and oats. Fluxus was appropriately hopped with both US Saaz and Glacier hops. Just before knock out, fifty pounds of Taza roasted Cacao nibs were added to the whirlpool. The result is a thick, sticky stout with tons of both roasted and chocolate flavors, aromas of tobacco and cocoa, and a surprisingly sweet, creamy finish.

750ml bottle into my Stone IRS glass. It poured black in color with a thin tan head covering the top of the beer.

The aroma shows some of the chocolate coming out and mixing with some sweeter, malty flavors. I get some dark fruit flavors adding a little more crisp sweetness along with just a hint of a roasty flavor to it as well.

The taste shows a lot of chocolate to it throughout. I get more of a dark, bitter-sweet chocolate at first, while the finish shows more milk chocolate and sweeter dark fruits. A little bit of a roasty, bitter flavor is there lingering in the finish as well.

The mouthfeel is on the heavier side with carbonation being average for the style. Overall it was a pretty decent beer, but not an outstanding one in the style. The chocolate was nice, but it just didn't seem to have the depth or balance that the great ones of the style achieve. Enjoyable beer to sip on this evening though.
