COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on of the world’s 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 Diego’s Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

McNeillR (2023) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Dark opaque brown, light brown ring. Soft spicy roast if a nose. Initial taste is lean choc, spicy and light smoke. Carbonation is a soft enough buzz and oily, gritty mouthfeel. Finishes rich decadent roast, uncomplex linger and warm spicy jitter.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Pours jet black and opaque with a 2.5 finger, frothy beige head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention for the style and ABV. Large chunks of of soapy lacing coat the glass on the way down. Looks incredible. Deeply roasted dark malt aroma with a perfectly roasted coffee bean presence integrated into the other dark malt notes. Really nutty with hints of hazelnut roast, burnt toast, powdery dark chocolate and espresso bean. There’s also some subtle lactic cream that adds another dimension to the nose. Great roasted coffee presence but it doesn’t completely dominate or overpower the other elements. Very inviting. Chewy full body with a prominent roasted gourmet coffee beam flavor that lingers troughout. Really coffee forward/dominant with lots of dry, bitter roast but it never becomes overly bitter or acrid. The silky chocolate malt notes come in along with lactic cream and roasted nuts in the back end to round things out. Heavy bittersweet dark chocolate flavor that tastes like a 75%+ cacoa chocolate bar with burnt toast and fresh gourmet coffee bean followed by caramel sweetness, toffee, lighter, silky chocolate notes and lactic cream. Really roasty but nicely balanced considering how strong the coffee flavor is. The high ABV is excellently masked with surprisingly no heat at all. The prominent coffee flavor makes a little strong on the roast but this is a really flavorful, well made beer that I enjoyed drinking.

Vestergaard (1293) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2015
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.

rodenbach99 (3759) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2015
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.

SlovakSniper (4313) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2015
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.
