Served on tap at the AleSmith tasting room. The appearance is a typical deep black Speedway hue. Very thick body. The nose has that great creamy Vietnamese coffee to it with a full roast maltyness, chocolate, and some small barrel additions. The flavor follows suit. Very tasty coffee. A lot more creamy/lactose then the regular version. Dark chocolate and muted bourbon add to this tasty treat. Full creamy mouth with a bit of oaky drying. Yum!

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Tap. Deep black pour, with a frothy tan head. Strong aromas of coffee, lactose, chocolate, rich, licorice. Flavors follow suit with a nice roundness, high alcohol, soft roast, chocolate and lots of coffee. Some brown sugar, possibly a touch of barrel. Tastes a lot like the standard Vietnamese Coffee Speedway (which does not suck).

Very good, kind of boozy, but still very good. It’s smooth and very sweet, has a lot of chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut. Can taste the coffee and a little bourbon as well. Smells of chocolate and vanilla. Finish is long and lingering and very satisfying.

Draft at the brewery. Black pour with a nice tan head. Chocolate, smooth sweetness, vanilla, light to moderate bourbon oak barrel character, roast, and tons of fresh ground coffee. I love the Vietnamese coffee blend, very smooth and flavorful, it almost gives me a subtle fruitiness. Nice.

First beer on the RBSG bus. Multiple pours. Damn what a beer. Nearly black with a nice brown head. Aroma hits with loads of freshly roasted coffee, bourbon, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, roasted malt, asphalt. Just delicious. The coffee hits strong and then gives way to a bourbon laced roast with chocolate. Wow.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours a viscous black with a finger of brown head. Rich coffee aroma with plenty of milk and dark chocolate. Notes of vanilla and cream with some caramel sweetness, a bit of bourbon, roast, and oak. The flavor is quite decadent with tons of chocolate and vanilla flavors and even more coffee. A nice touch of cream and sugar with some oak, roasted malt, and molasses as well. Really excellent.
