4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From RBSG 2008. Thanks to Peter and the guys at Alesmith for his special treat! Pours black as night with a thick tan head. Smells of rich chocolate, dark malts, cocoa, coffee bean, and love. The flavor was of more chocolate and coffee than regular Speedway, which is why I definitely enjoyed it just a tad more. Coats the palate with an oily, chocolatey layer and has you begging for more. Rich sweet dark chocolate and espresso is left in the finish and lingering aftertaste. Just a phenomenal brew and Im glad I got to try it!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Zakoon @ CBC Volunteers Party. Pours a pitch black with a tan, creamy head. Aroma has roasty malts, coffee, caramel, prunes, dates, slight licorice and some dark chocolate. Taste is roasty, dark malty, dark fruits, salt, hints of smoke, lots of pretty hard roasted coffee. Pretty sweet. Smooth body, low carb. Expected more, but still a good beer.

Une robe brune foncée, je ne commente pas la mousse. Un nez de chocolat au café. Une bouche intense, amère, piquante en bouche (amertume), une texture passablement liquide. Le picotement me dérange.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Noir et épais. Le liquide montre aussi une belle mousse brune. Au nez, enrobants arômes de café, de chocolat, de caramel, de réglisse, de houblons, de torréfaction et de charbon de bois. Au goût, les saveurs de café poivré et de malts sont grandement appréciées par mes papilles. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-fort avec un pétillement ajusté et une texture huileuse. En finale, une amertume fabriquée par le café et une chaleureuse accolade de l’alcool.

Consumed like 2 years ago, from a bottle. Poured a smooth dark, almost black-brown color with a nice small brown head. Aroma was rich coffee and chocolate, dark, molasses malt notes to it as well. Flavor was chocolate, roast and of course, coffee.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours thick pitch black with thick mocha head. This beer is pure decadence. Aroma has some liquor at first, cocoa, fruity figs, burnt figs, coffee berries. All this on a malty roasty background with tons of fresh pressed coffee and fresh grounded beans. Taste is same, awesome balance. Really fruity coffee, rosy malts, cocoa and chocolate. Quite some fudge and caramel notes. Light body for abv with light carbonation, almost coffee like. Finish is roasty and lasts for a long time. Warming, yet no presence of alcohol.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Jet black with a nice khaki head. Great retention. Chunky bubbles on the surface. A little bit leggy on the swirl. Intense coffee aroma. Reminds me of Vietnamese Speedway, which shouldn’t surprise me. Slightly fruity coffee notes. Deep chocolate.
Very intense coffee flavor, same slight fruity character as the nose. Nice chocolate and deep roast. Delicious, but very coffee-centric. Chewy. Nice body. Intense bitterness, as much from the coffee as anything. Delicious, but not significantly better than regular Speedway.
