Allagash Fluxus 2010

750 mL Corked & Caged bottle.
Quite a pop on opening, and an inky black pour. The beer is seriously black with a very small head and little retention. What head there is has a tan color.
The nose offers a light but intense roast.
Tastes are very much the same, but a few pointers;
+ ZERO Belgian character
+ Well hidden alcohol
+ Some lactose notes
+ Licorice and burned character in the aftertaste
There is an annoying and lingering aftertaste that feels a bit milky to me, and coupled wit the lack of Belgian character this beer begins to grate with me a little. If you are looking for a Belgian Stout it might be better to reach for a beer like Two Turtle Doves. There is some chocolate here but it seems muddy and ill-defined.
Ultimately a bit disappointing for me, others may like it more.
