Allagash Black Belgian Style Stout

The appearance of the beer has some visible red tones when held up to the light and overall not particularly dark. This stout has a small head, and medium carbonation. It also has the aroma of a bit of chocolate, spices, and a sweet candy smell. The initial taste is a bit bitter, but glides smoothly into a mild sweetness with a nutty finish. This is the type of beer after a few sips grows on you and has an overall clean taste.

I believe the smoothness of the beer correlates to the ABV, which is 7.5%. The mark of a good beer is its ability to have a higher ABV, but still remain smooth. This one wins in that category. I rate this beer a 7.5 out of 10.

Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
