Jadyn and I had dinner at some friends' place on October 6th. They had a bottle of Fluxus 2010 that they shared.
Brewery: Allagash Brewing Company
Serving: American Double Stout
Appearance: 4.0 | Smell: 4.5 | Taste: 4.0 | Mouthfeel: 4.0 | Drinkability: 3.5
Fluxus pours an opaque black, and is topped by a thin, quick fading brown head. The aroma is very nice aroma with lots of chocolate, roasted malts, and a mild woodiness.
Sweet notes upfront combine with the dark chocolate bitterness in the backbone to give impressions of rich chocolate. There's a mild bite at the end, and a woody aftertaste. This beer is full-bodied, and moderately carbonated.
A little sweet overall, but it has a very nice chocolate flavor.
