Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Map40 is a Belgian-style stout blended with cold brew coffee. Black in body with a tan, reddish-tinged head, this beer’s aroma is strong in coffee and light in roasted grain. Brewed with dark chocolate malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, and brown malt. A light nuttiness accompanies tastes of chocolate, raisin, and a resounding coffee note that weaves its way throughout. This is a rich, creamy, stout with a warming hint of alcohol in its clean finish.

Pours nice black, no head on, bottle is a bit older. The taste, upfront, lots of roasted malts, followed by notes of dark chocolate, and the coffee, which lingers all the way to the end. It finishes clean and hides its booze well and is definitely an enjoyable stout.

I was hoping for more "Belgiany" flavors but I think the coffee has covered any of those up. It is still, overall, very enjoyable.

Poured from a bottle.

Looks good, black brown with ruby edges and a fine ring of bubbles.
Smells of caramelized sugar candy, roasted coffee and sweet dark chocolate malt.
Tastes nice, smooth strong black coffee, caramel and chocolate malt. Some Belgian yeast esters are there in the background, but the smell and taste are focused on the coffee.
Medium feel, full but light. A bit sweet in the body with a light dry roast finish.

Overall, very nice! Definitely worth a try.

Deep dark brown body with lingering lacing. Smell is roasted coffee beans. Tastes of dry toasted coffee beans, some nutty chocolate. Mouth is soft and pleasant. Excellent finish. Great balance of coffee, chocolate, malt.

This beer pours a nice, creamy, black color. The head is 1 finger, tan, with average retention. Some lacing on the glass.
The nose, as I am sitting outside, the wind is wafting the aroma from this beer to my nose. I get a nice hint of coffee from the wind. Up close the nose is really rich with coffee, and undertones of malt.
The taste is - and my direct quote is "Oh, my goodness". It is a rich coffee flavor up front, that mellows out to a pleasing sweetness on the backside. There's some chocolate notes, and maybe a slight nutty flavor as well.
The feel is quite thick and full bodied. A little bit of carbonation at the back of my throat.
One of the best coffee beers I've ever had. Top notch for sure.

The beer pours out a dark brown almost black color, with a thin dark khaki colored head-------------- the aromas are of coffee for days, chocolate, roasted malts, wheat toast and dark fruits----------------- the flavors are of raisins, prunes, coffee and bitter dark chocolate, the beer has a medium creamy mouthfeel with a bitter coffee finish---------------- overall this was a delisious coffee stout, the coffee, bitter chocolate and dark fruits all come together wonderfully with a wonderful creamy mouthfeel---------------
