AleSmith Brewing Company and Mostra Coffee are excited to announce our collaboration for AleSmith’s next single varietal Speedway Stout. Local coffee roaster, Mostra Coffee, has carefully roasted and cold brewed Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans to complement our award winning Speedway Stout. Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans are grown in the fertile soil of some of the highest Caribbean peaks, making it one of the most prized gourmet coffees in the world. This rare coffee uses lightly roasted Arabica beans to create a subtle acidity and well-balanced chocolaty finish. Thanks to Mosta’s diligent work, these 100% Blue Mountain beans were sourced from the renowned Mavis Bank Coffee Factory in Jamaica.

Bottle. Dark mahogany with a light mocha head that fades very quickly to a ring around the glass. Good lord that is a lot of coffee in a beer...some roasted malts too with a fair amount of chocolate, vanilla bean, some booze towards the end (which means it is pretty well hidden given the %) with a moderate carbonation and full body. Can’t get over how the coffee infuses everything from start to end, very unique, curious if its the coffee, the process, the amount of coffee or something else.

Bottle, vintage 2014. Viscous black pour, mocha head, and nice lacing. Aroma, man, full disclaimer, I really like coffee, but wow does this ever smell great. Loads of earthy coffee roast, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is more or less the same as the aroma, with rich coffee roast up front, followed by a hint of vanilla and a bitter roast finish. This is over two years old, its a big coffee beer, and its tasting fantastic with loads of coffee flavour, I don’t know how these guys do it!

From SF: pours black oily color, clear, with brown foamy head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: rich roasted dark malts aroma, which takes on coffee, bittersweet chocolate, molasses, milk chocolate, coffee, coffee, Coffee...vanilla, cocoa beans, dark fruits.... Flavor is very similar: prevails flavors of roasted malts, with notes mentioned above, with rich note of coffee, but still very, very well balanced with all other ingrediends, with hint of charcoal, and supported with hop flavor, which takes on dark fruits. Malt sweetness is high, hop bitterness also, evident in finish. Finish is slightly bitter sweet. Body is full, alcohol warmth is gentle noticeable, but not 12%! Texture is velvetly soft, carbonation is low. What a beer! But still I prefer normal/official version.

750ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Yeaster. Pours pitch black with a small beige head. Aroma is plenty of cold brewed coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, liquorice root and green pepper. Flavour is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is heayy roasted malt and lots of cold brewed coffee. Coffee dominates almost everything and a hint of coconut.

750 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a viscous, oily black with a thin medium khaki colored head and a good small bit of lace. The aroma is dominated by coffee. Beautiful roasted coffee in front of a nice malt and a small amount of chocolate. There is a light alcohol on the back end. The flavor is again dominated by roasted coffee. There is as mall but of malt and chocolate before a hint of vanilla. The coffee is so heavy it really drowns everything else out. The alcohol poles through on the back end to let you know it's a heavy hitter. The mouth feel is a light, which blows me away. The carbonation is soft, but doesn't help its chewiness. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty coffee and a light alcohol burn. Beautiful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is wonderful coffee, cocoa, roasted malt. Appearance is black, thick pour, khaki head, viscous. Taste is wonderful. Coffee, tons of coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, nice and bitter. Mouthfeel is a little light, not as thick as it should be, but good carbonation otherwise. Overall, very impressive.

Smell and taste of coffee grounds. Bitter with some alcohol burn. Maybe a slight alcohol taste but it is masked by coffee bitterness.
