COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on of the worldís most expensive and rare coffee varieties, the beans are specifically selected for their ripeness and quality by the civet, a small jungle marsupial that feeds of the fruit of the coffee cherry. Expertly roasted by San Diegoís Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of RobertDale, a fine fellow who has impeccable taste in beer & canines.
The beer pours perfectly black with a small head.

The aroma is rich & roasty with some dark chocolate, but more just a ton of coffee character. Itís got some rich vanilla and some booziness.

The flavor is just huge, itís got a bunch of coffee and rich maltiness. Itís ashy, somewhat sweet, but itís go t a nice warming boozy character and.. didi I mention? fabulously balanced roastiness.

This is one of those beers where itís hard to put a finger on why itís so great, except to say that it is just immensely enjoyable.

Bottle, courtesy of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma has roasted coffee, thick malty, sugary molasses, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is bittersweet, lots of coffee and vanilla. Very thick mouthfeel, syrupy, lots or molasses and caramel. Coffee influences are really upfront and balancing out the sweetness. Low carbo, very nice unit.

kermis (5260) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle shared at the get Dean to 5000 tasting, as Deanís 5000 - yay! Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of massive roast, espresso, dark chocolate, fudge. Flavour is over moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Full bodied but missing some of the complexity of other top end imperial stouts. That said, still excellent.

Bottle share thanks to Homer. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is bitter sweet and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Taste is sweet up front, then chocolate bitter. Coffee may be I there, but pretty mild, finishes bitter . Really good beer, pretty thick in the mouthfeel. Interested to see how it compares to other variants.
