Maine, United States

Style: Belgian Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Last of a 4-pack picked up at the brewery in April, shame to see it was apparently a one-time release. I'd say the coffee takes the lead here but a pretty fantastic blend of crazy good cold brew and Belgian dark flavors, not something you see too often and it's super well-executed. Awesome aroma, taste brings more nuanced notes of dark fruit, spice and yeast; quality coffee flavor gives off a dusty mocha vibe. Very smooth mouthfeel kinda big and hot for the ABV with highish carbonation. Tap at the source and every bottle of the 4-pack was superb.

12 oz bottle into ball jar. Note: Bottle says 7.7%, not 7.5

Pours a very dark blackish brown with a 2 finger soapy head that settles down. Aroma is strong wafts of coffee and chocolate. Taste follows the smell combined with a zing of moderate bitterness and mild alcohol burn. Roasted coffee flavor is mixed well with chocolate - very well done. I don't get the raisin taste at all but maybe my buds aren't attuned to it. The Belgian yeast is a nice twist away from coffee porters and works well. Feel is smooth with a slight burn in the aftertaste.

Overall a great choice. I almost passed this up - didn;t realize it was a one-time thing. Very happy I didn't now.

For all you Dougernaut fans out there, apparently Map 40 is more or less Dougernaut with a few tweaks. The Allagash tasting notes include chocolate, raisin (surprisingly enjpyable) and coffee. I didn't expect to like the raisin additions but it was great.

Pitch black, small tan head, no lace.
Strong coffee aroma. Chocolate.
Ditto taste. Espresso coffee upfront, followed by sweet chocolate.
Very smooth and creamy.
Another hit from Allagash.

Appearance: Pours from the growler with a fudge brown color; the head is strong and leaves shards and squiggles of lacing

Smell: Bold coffee and dark chocolate tones

Taste: Dark chocolate forward with strong coffee tones building; after the swallow, the Belgian yeast adds a different dimension

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A really nice coffee stout with a twist from the Belgian yeast
