Beer Wednesday – Allagash Black

Happy Beer Wednesday!

This week, I’m quite thrilled to be bringing you a terrific vegan Belgian stout, Allagash Black.

This terrific Belgian stout (you know how I feel about Belgian beers) was rich, smooth and malty, with amazing balance, and a clean, crisp mouthfeel that has just the right amount of Belgian yeast. The head was a little thin, with just the right amount of carbonation. The nose was clean malt and molasses, with a tiny hint of coffee. The flavor though was rich and smooth, with chocolate, molasses, and coffee flavors that really opened up as the beer warmed. This particular vegan beer was as advertised, although at 7.5% ABV, I certainly could have drunk a few, but not a bunch, regardless of how good they are.

If I have to complain about something, and I do feel compelled, the finish had just a tiny bit of burnt malt and was missing a miniscule bit of sweetness, but I really am picking nits here. This was a great Belgian stout, and I’m really happy to give it a coveted 6/6 on my six-pack scale.

  1. A six pack. How rare? Can’t say that I’ve ever seen this but I’ll be on the lookout!

    • It was pretty darn awesome. I also had the Brewery Ommegang Game of Thrones stout, “Take the Black” not too long ago. That melted my brain it was so good. I picked up their new red ale, “Fire and Blood” too. It’s brewed with ancho chilies, so I’m a little scared. . .

  2. […] I’m elated to give this delicious version of Powder Monkey just my second full six-pack ever. (The other was Allagash Black Belgian Style Stout) […]
