4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 04/10/2013, thanks to bird_machine. Pours black, medium fizzy tan head, settles to a nice crema on the surface, dense ring of lacing. Amazing aroma: powdered cocoa, chocolate brownie, round kopi character well integrated, creamy roast quality, bourbon finish with a bit of heat. Taste is chocolate liqueur, vanilla caramel, coffee with slight acidic edge, bourbon chocolatey finish. Palate is full, rich and smooth, everything well balanced and blended. Wow, fantastic.

Bourbon and a bit of vanilla along with the Kopi in the background. Barrel character dominates but the Kopi is present in the background.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of BLACKIPA! This fucken guy sends me dongs all the fucken time. Fucken a bro. Pours a deep brown appearance with a mild, brown, somewhat bubbly head. Aroma is incredibly potent, even from a few feet away. Big, sweet bourbon, potent coffee, vanilla, toffee, dark chocolate aroma. A fair amount of booze in the flavor but it’s honestly pretty smooth with just a slight burn on the finish. Logs of bourbon, toffee, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, slightly fruity flavor. Coffee really sticks around nicely in the aftertaste. Definitely my favorite Speedway rendition and really delicious stuff.

Huge thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this bottle. Let me just get this out of the way early, this is one of the best beers I have ever drank. Pours a black color with a tan head. The aroma is full of lovely bourbon, coffee and roasted malt notes. The flavor is great with some chocolate and coffee, as well as some great oak, maple and vanilla. I also get some whiskey notes, but it is not as strong as the oak and maple. There is also some nice roasted malt in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Absolutely amazing.
