Bottle share at Tribes Alehouse. Pour is oil black with a small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, bourbon heat, coffee creamer, vanilla beans, leather, and roast. Flavor is similar with a bit more alcohol present, roasty finish.

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.

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!

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.

#1000. Bottle. 2013 vintage. Black. Small creamy, soapy brown head, forming a lasting ring with a wispy topping. Aroma is bourbon, dark chocolate, and coffee, full and rich but not overpowering. Some vanilla, and light woody spiciness. Big full luscious body. Velvety. Wow. First sip. Amazing. Perfect alcohol warming. No heat. Flavor also finds the smooth bourbon, chocolate, bittersweet coffee, vanilla, and wood. So rounded and well integrated. Such balance. Never cloying. Not too sweet or bitter or roasty or boozy - Juuuuust right. A beer where each element isn’t trying to yell over the other. Nor is it weighed down by a dozen different things fighting for your attention. World class.

Very rich, sweet, dark aroma. Sweet dark fruit, alcohol, sugar, bourbon, dark bittersweet chocolate, vanilla. Taste is so strong, smooth. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, bitter, sweet, smooth, strong. Like shockingly smooth. So good.
