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!

Bottle - thanks Stawn! Pous opaque black with a small brown head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is surprisingly not strong, notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Flavor is about the same, obviously coffee infused, but not strong or really noticeable as special. Lots of roasty chocolatey notes as well. Light sweet, light bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough, but not really even up to the level of a regular speedway IMO.

Bottle shared by bytemesis. Black color. Light brown head but not much. Poured into a pint glass (only available), very little aroma to go on. Getting more chocolate and dried red fruits than coffee. Flavor is more overly coffee, ashy, cocoa, some alcohol, but nothing to write home about. Still a good stout but i donít believe this is better than the original speedway.

From the bottle, black pour and a dark tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Flavor is roasty and sweet. A beautiful imperial stout. The Vietnamese version is better, but this is still tasty as hell.

750 ml bottle from jenray- thanks, Jen! Long-time want. Pours an opaque midnight brown color with a thick, frothy tan head that settles slowly. Aroma of coffee, earth, dark fruits (plums, grapes, and apples?), vegetal notes, and dark chocolate. Initially it seems off but smooths into rich coffee and roast as it warms. The flavor, however, starts with intensely rich coffee and super bitter dark chocolate, and then smooths into something more drinkable as it warms. Like two completely different beers at 50 degrees and 65 degrees. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This may have been a 3.8 or so until I let it warm more. Even as it stands, this is my least favorite of the otherwise world class Speedway Stout lineup.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 75cl, at 12%Vol, exclusive American brew, with coffee, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex Stout, roasted/bitter and slightly spicy/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, rocky head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, prune, molasses and coffee. Thick with a tang and some heat. Taste is dark chocolate, dark roast and burnt sugar. Develops more depth with espresso, fudge brownie and toasted coconut. A little bit too much coffee now.

Rating number 1100!!! Bottle from JohnnyJ, thanks Jonathan! Aroma has notes of roasted chocolate, rich roasted coffee, espresso, molasses, dark dried fruits and a hint of citrus hops. Fantastic aroma, best coffee imp stout aroma Iíve had. Black hue with a large mostly diminishing dark tan head that left great lace. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft with a long very bitter finish. Overall an amazing beer that lives up to itís reputation. Fantastic aroma and appearance, the best Iíve seen in a coffee imp stout. The taste is very good and the palate is almost perfect but the bitterness is a bit over the top. All in all a fantastic brew.
