Hell yeah! Black pour, brown head. Loads of coffee and chocolate in the nose with good chili presence. Flavor of chili peppers is in the beer, but no spice. Seamless blend of all the ingredients here. Wow and wow. Thanks Alesmith, Peter and Joe. Bravo.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2011 (on draught at RBWG 2011-Phoenix!!). Pours dark brown with red hue and thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, adobo sauce and coffee. Taste is semi-sweet with some roasty bitterness and some heat coming through. The heat is subtle and blends perfectly with the rest of the ingredients. Medium bodied with creamy texture. Finish is mildly spicy and roasty. This is a really nice speedway variation. Thanks to Dak and smokepot for hooking this up!!

On tap @ RBWG - Pours a dark, dark brown color with a small tan head that eventually settles to a long lasting film. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is a doughy roasted malt with hints of coffee and pepper. The flavor is more chocolate with a noticeable chili pepper presence. The pepper is really noticeable in the finish. It really lingers on the lips and seem quite slick. Full body. A very nice beer. Glad to see the pepper didnít over whelm the beer. Thanks Joe, Dak, and Peter with setting this up.

A: Looks like Speedway: thick and black with a finger or so of tan head. S: Spicy chili peppers are strong up front with the coffee following quickly behind. Plenty of roasted malt and a touch of char, but not as much of the smooth chocolate qualities that regular Speedway tends to have. T: Earthy and spicy chili peppers provide the bulk of the flavor here. The coffee is still there, but there is not as much of the base Speedway character as I would have liked. Some mild chocolate and a good roast, but not as rich. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Good but not as good as regular Speedway Stout (or of course some of the other variations).

On tap at RBWG 2011 in Arizona. Thanks so much the the amazing love from AleSmith and to Dak and Joe. Pours a totally black color with a medium creamy light brown head. A rich roast and coffee nose, earthy soot and smoke. The flavor is wonderful; upfront heat from the peppers, it mixes seamlessly with the massive milky coffee, lots of roast, smooth as hell. Just a lovely treatment to Speedway- which is an institution in itself. The palate is improved by spicy heat. What a great treat to try. Very spicy and a beast.

On tap @ Oíbrienís Night of a Million Zillion Speedways. Looks the same as the regular version, except maybe a smaller head. Aroma is spicy chilies, vegetal, and cinnamon on top of regular Speedway. Flavor has some spicy and cinnamon notes and a light heat on the back of the throat. My least favorite of the night.

Draft at OíBrienís. Typical Speedway appearance, black, small creamy tan head. Chocolate, chipotle peppers, lots of heat and spice hitting the back of the throat, a bit of coffee coming in the background, the flavors are interesting, but Iím not a big fan. Not the hottest beer I have had, but I think itís safe to to say I donít like pepper beers that much.

Served on tap at Oíbrienís Night of a Million Zillion Speedways. Only got to try one sample of this but that was more then enough. Got the recommendation to save this till the end and that was great advice.The appearance is the usual Speedway deep black hue with a medium roasty brown head. The aromas are smoky chipotle pepper and riach roasty aromas. The flavors are full of smoked chipotle peppers that just sits way to heavy in the esophagus. The smoke just chokes you and it lingers. They are good flavors but not in a beer for me. If you marinaded some chicken or something in here then it would be great.

1st rating of this brew, and first tick in a long time for me. Tried this today at Obrienís amidst a sea of people and an unseasonably hot November evening. This was probably the most intersting and surprising of all the beers featured tonight. Nice spicy nose and taste that really incorporates the peppers into the beer in a way that enhances it. A spicy imperial Stout, wow, if this was bottled it would make great chili.
