Map 40 Stout Makes Limited Return for Allagash Brewing

map40pourAllagash Brewing Company (Portland, Maine) recently announced that it has once again teamed up with Speckled Ax Wood Roasted Coffee for the Limited Release of Map 40.

Although it is a rich and creamy Belgian-style Stout at its soul, Map 40 does not truly become itself until it is blended with cold-brewed Map 40 Mokha Java coffee from Speckled Ax.  This marriage supplies an experience that boasts an “aroma . . . strong in coffee and light in roasted grain” while a “light nuttiness accompanies flavors of chocolate, raisin, and a resounding coffee note that weaves its way throughout.”  Weighing in at 7.5% ABV, Map 40 comes together as a “a rich, creamy stout with a clean finish.”

“It’s fun working with Matt [of Speckled Ax] because we’re big fans of his coffee,” said Jason Perkins, Brewmaster at Allagash. “And we’re lucky that he’s also a fan of our beer. It was nice to be able to tell Matt how we wanted the beer to taste, and have him come back with the coffee that would work best.”

Map 40 is officially available now and will hang around as long as supplies last.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Georgia and throughout the rest of Allagash Brewing’s distribution network.  Prost!
