4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Midnight black with an almost reddish head of foam. Aroma is chocolate covered marshmallows, dark roast coffee beans, sweet bourbon, and ripe black cherry essence. The taste delivers on all of these elements but in a much more cohesive and intermingled way. This is the best version to date for me.

Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured jet black with a thin forming head. This was some epic stuff and another great one in the books for the Speedway variants. Intense coffee complimented but thick, luscious barrel character. Vanilla, toffee sugars, whiskey-soaked oak, and dense, rich coffee all worked beautifully here.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 At a tasting, thanks DSG, small creamy head, very dark brown to black colour, , aroma of prunes, vanila and coconut with some almonds and coffee, flavour of dried fruits, roasted coffee, dark chocolate and chocolate liquor and some nuts. Nice but the barrel character is much too strong.

Solid BA stout. Nice coffee aroma and flavor and not a ton of heat from the barrels.

Aroma of bourbon, coffee, vanilla, a bit of coconut, dark fruits and dark chocolate. Bittersweet flavor, liqueuer-like, with roast, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, bourbon, raisins, prunes and a bitterish, slightly alcoholic and slightly vinous finish.
