COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on of the world’s most expensive and rare coffee varieties, the beans are specifically selected for their ripeness and quality by the civet, a small jungle marsupial that feeds of the fruit of the coffee cherry. Expertly roasted by San Diego’s Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

Probably the best stout I have had. Dark and dank, with a beautiful brown head. The aroma is full of amazing coffee scents. the flavor is sweet and malty, roasty and full of coffee deliciousness. To take one of the best imperial stouts in the world and add the Kopi Luwak coffee to it was brilliant.

Hard to get a handle on the appearance because the pour was so small. Aroma is heavy coffee. Taste is chocolate with rich creamy coffee and cinnamon. Bitter. Slight hazelnut. Really bold coffee taste. Maybe some coconut. Great balanced palate and good mouthfeel.

Sweet and spicy aroma. The cask may have had an effect but in addition to coffee and chocolate there is a weird finish. Still great but not as good as BA speedway which was also on draft at hamiltons that night

On tap at Alesmith. Drank 4 variations of Speedway today. This was my favorite of the 4. Aroma is lots of roasted coffee, similar to espresso. Taste follows. Similar to regular speedway, but just dialed up a notch.

On tap at Alesmith. Black pour with an expresso tan head.  Aroma is ultra rich fresh coffee, roast, and chocolate.  Just pure ripped coffee.  Taste is ridiculous fresh coffee with a heavy roast character, bitter chocolate, and a bit of malt sweetness on the very end that comes across as subtle raisin/dark fruit. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel.  Side-by-side with the regular and as hard as it is to believe this is better with more coffee, more roast, and more chocolate.

12oz handbottle thanks to ygtbsm94. Pours a flat lighter amber that looks decently black in the glass with zero head. Nose is heavy aromatic coffee, lemon acidity, dark chocolate fudge, brown sugar, toasted malt. Flavor is sweet, creamed coffee, mocha and espresso with creamy Kahlua heat. Medium bodied albeit thin for style. Nice roasted coffee finish. Consider this rating a place holder until I get to try it on nitro fresh in southern California. And oh will that day be a reckoning.

Pour is a thick brooding black with very little head. Smell is sweet oaky and coffee. Taste is a sweet coffee blend up front like a caramel mockiato followed by a huge woody oaky middle followed by a dry bitter but robust smokey finish. Good stuff.

Pitch black pour with a small brown head that fades. Big roasted coffee aromatics with coffee, chocolate, and a bit of alcoholic sourness that reminds of a barrel treatment. Rich coffee flavor with chocolate, creamy vanilla, char, and a bit of woodiness. Very silky mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very nice and glad to have tried it.
