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!

ineedbeer (801) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 10, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Ara is very balanced with quite a bit of chocolate and roast, but with complimentary medium light coffee notes and medium barrel character adding notes of bourbon and vanilla. Pours black with a thick mocha head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers. Faint lacing and fairly long legs. Flavor has a nice medium roast note with moderate coffee character. Medium barrel notes with some light vanilla. Moderate chocolate character with some medium light bitterness and medium alcohol spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium full to full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall a really nice barrel aged coffee stout with balanced notes of coffee, bourbon and the base beer. Nice vanilla and bourbon notes with a good coffee character.

Pitch black in color, tan mahogany head.... Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, cherry, espresso... Flavor is bourbon and vanilla initially, gives way to a very sweet coffee, berries, spicy kick on the finish... Amazing, so smooth

Strong smell, love the dark lock. The taste is what I want from a stout, strong and dark coffee-chocolate taste. The feeling in the mouth is great. Feels like a chocolatecake in the mouth.
