"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. The silky mouth feel is a great balance to the roasted character, coffee and dark chocolate notes expressed throughout this beer." —brewer
"Dark mahogany color in the glass with glimmers of garnet when held up to the light. Pours with a fluffy cream-colored head that stays a long time and leaves gorgeous sticky lacing behind when it finally falls. Cigar box, roasted malt, molasses, pine tar and sweet spice like clove and nutmeg flood the nose and palate. The mouth is medium weight, not too overpowering, with a strong wave of flavors following each swallow. Rich, roasty and immensely satisfying; also surprisingly easy to drink." —Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast

"What's that saying? Once you go Belgian you never go back. Or was it black? What the hell, let's hit two birds with one bottle. Big, bubbly tan froth with excellent head retention and lacing on the glass. A shade or two away from pitch black. The aroma ranges from charcoal to dried black currants, from earthy yeast to a mild herbal phenol. A complex nose for sure. Bold crispness and very smooth with a slick medium body. Maltiness is semidry and extremely complex; the silky sweetness from the oats and the graininess meld well with a mild charcoal flavor. Layers of light vanilla, faint anise and cocoa powder come to mind. More charred flavor hits the palate with dark baker's chocolate and espresso. Modest hopping and a warming alcohol help to balance and add their own complex layers. Sort of a semidry mocha finish. A top pick for the style, and with each sip Black is turning into our current favorite from Allagash." —Alstrom Bros, Beer Advocate
