Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.70%

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.

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.

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---------------

Damn, I'm picky with coffee beers, but this uses the addition well. It's not too bitter, too roasted, or bringing green pepper like so many. The smooth java flavor blends into a rich dark chocolate, that begins to dry as it finishes. There are notes of creamy caramel and dried fruit in the background. Very well balanced and satisfying without being too thick. TL;DR dry mocha beer.

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.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a bottling date of 1/11/18. Sampled on March 1, 2018.

It pours a deep jet black with a modest, lingering tan head that also leaves lacing on the glass.

The coffee notes take center stage in the aroma with a more moderate citrus or pear-like fruitiness and roasted malts.

Medium body or thereabouts.

The coffee bitterness encapsulates the flavor sensations as the dark roasted sweetness leads to a mildly fruity and bitter finish.

Super roasty and coffee? forward aroma. Really incredible actually. Nice malty, roasty beer with a moderate bitter finish. Is there Belgian yeast in here? I can't really tell. Tastes like an American Porter or Stout to me with coffee and a darn good one.
