COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barrel Aged Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee that has been matured in premium bourbon barrels. Considered one 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. Good to the last dropping!

A - Smells of coffee take over the aroma, bourbon is there but its subtle. Ap - Thick Black with a small tan head. Lacing sticks around slightly. T - Tastes like expensive coffee and the bourbon comes through in a smooth, semi-hot kind of way. O - Overall great beer for the coffee/bourbon fiends out there!

Black pour with khaki head. Nice bourbon and coffee notes. Vanilla, oak, and roasted malt. Mild alcohol, some cream, chocolate, and a touch of dark fruit. The flavor is really heavy on the roasted malt, coffee, and bourbon. Oak, dark chocolate, and vanilla. Light booze and a hint of coconut.

Rating #1300. Huge, giant, sweaty thanks to the one and only Bman1113VR for this treat. Inky, 30 weight black pour with a dark brown head. Nose is marshamllow, TONS of coffee (french roast), bourbon, vanilla, some more bourbon, and then bourbon, tannins, oak, earth. Really incredible nose. After about 8 minutes of huffing the fusels, the taste is bourbon, coffee, earthy, vanilla, toast, marshmallows, incredible. I LOVE THIS BEER!!!! Silky mouthfeel.

Bottle at Sour & Bitter #2, pours black with a small tan / brown head. Aroma of heavy bourbon barrels, potent coffee, and alcohol -- exceedingly complex, but doesn’t seem that different from regular BA Speedway Stout. Flavour definitely tastes richer than regular BA Speedway Stout, with exceedingly complex coffee notes, followed by bourbon barrels, moderate roast, and wood. Amazingly complex, and perhaps my favourite of all Speedway Stout renditions. While the nose is similar to regular BA Speedway, the coffee is more pungent on the nose, adding another dimension. Insanely complex and such a pleasure to sip. World class.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013
750ml bottle courtesy of TF, who else?... Pours the same as the rest with a deeper stouty hue with less intense edges and topped with a creamy light khaki head... Aroma of smooth bourbon notes that mesh effortlessly with a silky earthy coffee not without a huge roast profile. Very nicely executed amalgamation of barrel and coffee notes. Some vanilla also comes into play. Nicely done... Flavors are more of the same combination of notes aforementioned with smooth bourbon and earthy coffee notes throughout. Medium bodied with a mild level of carbonation. Significant better than standard kopi which really doesn’t say much but I digress. Toss-up between barrel aged and this. Excellent.

Trying this one side by side with the regular Kopi Luwak (non BA)

A - Pours thin and not oily, half a finger leather like head. Not as thick as I expected.

S - Coyingly sweet nose, lots of vanilla, sort of earthy

T - sweet, vanilla, bourbon is strong at first and then fades to this very nutty earthy coffee taste. i get some heavy leather. I get really fresh toffee

M - Medium body, roasted sweet finish

O - Impressive but I think the bourbon takes away from the exceptional regular Kopi Luwak. The bean is so great and to barrel age this is weird and a bummer.
