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!

BBB63 (6473) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Backlogged rating from RBSG 2014, many thanks to whom brought this, sorry I did not write it down: Anyway, deep near opaque hue with a short lasting head and minimal lace, nice oily tears. The coffee and bourbon work cohesively to bomb your face and palate. Vanilla, char, roast, bourbon and a hint of mocha to the rescue. The mouth feel is utterly smooth with just a bit of an ashy finish. Dangerously drinkable. This is SO MUCH BETTER than the non barreled Kopi Luwak version, no herbal or veggie notes here. This one is worthy of the hype!

Marsiblursi (3063) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
(Bottle) pours black with a brown head. The aroma holds bourbon up front with coffee and dark chocolate. Ones again, not that complex but perfect balance and the yummy factor is maximal. The flavour is near medium sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Bourbon, wood, vanilla, coconut, coffee, chocolate, fruits and balanced hops. The mouthfeel is soccer, valvety and smooth with a light carbonation. Complex, lingering finish. Near full bodied.

Ktwse (2839) - SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2014
Pours black with deep tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, nuts, oak barrels, vanilla, molasses, very very nice! Taste is an onslaught of chocolate and vanilla, followed by light sweet licorice and coffee bitter finish that lasts for days. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation. My favorite Speedway Stout!

ansalon (2032) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2014
Pours matte black almost black hole black with a very low tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, bourbon, muscovado sugar, hazelnuts. Taste is bloody amazing: well integrated coffee tones, dark chocolate, muscovado, sugar, bourbon, slight nutty notes. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with almost no carbonation. Perfection in every way and amazingly well balanced!
