Pours a thick motor oil black with a nice dark tan head. Nose is vanilla, whiskey and oak. Smooth flavor with notes of vanilla and whiskey followed by a nice coffee aftertaste. Excellent RIS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing! Thanks to joedevivre for the share and 600th rating. Oily black pour. Nose dances with coffee, chocolate, oak, vanilla, caramel, leather. Taste is equally wonderful. Fair sweet but cut by the booze and little bit of bitterness. Heavy mouthfeel, but great for sipping.

Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle: Thanks GTH: Served in a Duvel glass: Medium to smaller sized brown head on top of a black colored beer. Aroma keeps playing with the nose: one time a lot of vanilla and some coffee, than there is loads of strawberry and some other red fruit, than it changes again and spreads some berries and finally there’s a good deep dark roast with dark chocate, whiskey and coffee. Good aroma for sure! Flavours of dark chocolate, spice, whiskey, marzipan, vanilla, wood roast, bitters, some mocha, cacoa, coffee, some espresso, malt roast, some coffee beans, cream and some oat. Aftertaste is coffee, bitters, roast, mocha, some whiskey, some malt roast, light vanilla and some oat. Low carbo, light creamy light oily mouthfeel, full bodied and light oily light sticky warm and spiced texture. Awesome beer, balanced, deep, transforming and tasty!

DrewFace (784) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Pours a deep dark nearly black with large light brown head. Lots of bourbony, barrel character, vanilla, oaky, roasty, chocolate aroma. More of the same is the flavor. Lots of boozy, bourbon flavor, some oak and vanilla, roasty, and more booze in the finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks DSG.Black with tan ring. Sweet, some coffee, bourbon-originated vanilla, some ink and some soy aroma, rich taste - chocolate and bourbon, some coffee too. Full body, smooth, coffee finish, a little burnt. Round and amazing.

gEUS (1061) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2014
750 ml bottle at home - 2009 vintage. First of all, this one held up very well!. Pours pitch black with a steady light beige head. Intense dark chocolate nose with green coffee beans and small green paprica hints. A-typical american stout (I guess due to a disproportional amount of hops?). Medium body with a nice sweet roasty start, alcohol burn as from the mid. Taste of ultra dark chocolate and mocca... Interested in tasting more of them!

Lemke10 (797) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2014
This pours a pitch black color with a medium brown head. The aroma is ever so boozy mixed with roasted hints of bourbon and vanilla. The texture is thick, smooth, and delicious. This seems to be a lighter, less robust version of the normal Speedway Stout but the flavor are much deeper and more complex. Well worth the extra money if you ever get the chance to buy it.
