Draft glass @ Gollem. Black, small white but solid dark tanned head, decent lacing. Nose is mocha sweet, big sweet coffee, massive mocha ice cream, faint near hazelnut, ‘though there is a faint glue / paint in the nose which is right about the only minor point in this beer. Taste is gorgeous, thick chocolate, mocha ice cream, huge mocha, sweet coffee, chocolate syrup, big sweetness, espresso perfectly balances this beer – makes it glorious, chocolate,… damn that sweet coffee,… Chocolate & mocha syrup body. Damn I loved this, I didn’t quite get the hype around most Speedway variants but this is more than lovely, this & bourbon rock but this one is my favorite it seems, the rest so far I don’t quite get.

Good stuff like most alesmith beers. Black pour with brown head. Aroma is rich nutty coffee, some light dark fruits and bread. Taste is roasty rich full bodied coffee and light sweet bready malts.

Tap at Brewdog Warschau . Pours black, small grey head. Smell is intense ! Roasted coffee. Taste is intense, black malts, coffee notes ( the aspects of coffee I like ) as well as mild vanilla tones. Mouthfilling blast of dark chocolate towards the end. Awesome blend once again !

tomekboniek (487) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 14, 2016
Brewdog, Warszawa. Barwa czarna nie przejrzyste, piana bezowa niska. Aromat intensywny, zdominowany przez kawę. Bardzo intensywna mocno palona, wysokiej jakości. Posmaki kawowe, lekko palone. Do tego wyczuwalny alkohol bardzo szlachetny, rozgrzewający gardło. Konsystencja oleista. Umiarkowana słodycz.

Bottle. Dark mahogany pour with a generous mocha head that cascades and then settles to a velvety pillow top throughout. Lots of coffee both wet French press tailings and some fresh espresso, roasted dark malt, Madagascar vanilla, boozy, sweet, full body and moderate carbonation, smooth, fairly sweet and becomes a bit too cloying for me on the finish with lots of vanilla and booze but not enough coffee bitterness and roasted malts to cut things.

On tap at Sedona. Pours black with a brown head. Hefty aroma of coffee and chocolates. Flavor is amazing. Brilliant coffee on top of lightly sweet expensive chocolate, spring flowers, grasses, roasted malts. Outstanding. Does it get better than this? Yes, but it's rare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From draft at fermentoren. Poured like your regular speedway. Deep black with a big creamy mocha head on top. Nose is clear speedway, with lot’s of roast en sweet chocolate, the used coffee is imo extra sweet, vanilla Cream notes, roasted, light green pepper notes in the finish, coffee creamer. Sweet aftertaste. Not an improvement on the regular speedway
