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.

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.

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

Feb. 14 bottle in Feb. 15. Just got it from westmeister. Thanks, West. Slightly thin dark black brown for a big imperial, but consistent with other Speedways. Nose of rich dark chocolate and dark and burnt malts. Flavors of dark brown sugar, bitter, but smooth dark roast coffee and malts, rich cold press and hot coffee elements, creamy milk chocolate aspects. Tasty and with a kick. Going on memory I preferred the Vietnamese version but also had that much fresher than this one.

Thanks to tderoeck! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG IV. Blackish, small mocha head. Nose is huge coffee, real coffee & not the usual, this makes me think of coffee stuff, mocha, light vanilla. Taste is lots of filter coffee of good quality but with a definite green paprika taste to it, leading me to believe that there is some age on this, coffee, bitter grounds, chocolate,..; Grainy & sludgy coffee feel to it. This is too old I think, the coffee is already developing a green paprika quality to it. I don’t recall seeing a date on the bottle. Decent still.
