The Friday Brew Review: Allagash black

Happy Friday everyone! Now, I’m well aware of the fact that it’s actually Saturday, but I intend to make this a weekly thing.

Just trying to keep it in the spirit.

I decided to do the brew review on one of my favorite styles of beer: the stout. Specifically, Allagash Brewing black.

And what a brew this was. It had that great stout taste that sticks around after that first sip. It’s not too heavy and is actually easily (dangerously?) drinkable.

The subtle notes of roasted malt and chocolate also made themselves known with every drink. It had a fantastic head on it as well that didn’t bubble over (expert pour: thank you). A decent ABV of 7.8%, and a taste that kept you wanting more.

A decent 8 out 10.

I even did a YouTube review. Give it a watch!


-Cheers ’til next time, Nick

Regardless of what I think, Ill share brew news and stories and try and let the general public know the facts! If you like what I say, let me know! If not, go ahead and tell me anyway! Everything can be considered constructive feedback!
