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!

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

Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with thick brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, bourbon, coffee, vanilla, toffee, oak. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout (but not overly cloying) with a nice bitter following and ethanol finish. Overall this was a full, rich, fantastic brew!

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.

On the patio of some pizza place in the Summer of 2012. Pours black with creamy grey head. Aroma is beautiful, fuck yeah, deep coffee notes that melt with the perfectly smooth and inviting roasted-toasted malt, fuck yeah. Taste is beautiful amazing very smooth chocolate malt, some toffee. This beer is like an amazing meal made by one of the best chefs on the planet, and every sip is another course. This shit is the tits, fuck yes. If only it was not a whale.
