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!

On tap at RBWG thanks to daknole, smokepot23 and ALESMITH. ...DAMN!!! Pours a deep oily black with a large brown head. Aroma is some of the best coffee aroma i’ve smelled in either a coffee or a beer, chocolate, vanilla, roast. Flavor is aggressive fresh espresso, roasted barley, creamy cocoa and chocolate. Awesome brew, and best coffee i’ve had in an imperial stout downright.

enjoyed during 2011 RBWG pours thick black with a medium dark brown head. Aroma is roast, smoke, bitter cocoa and thin coffee. Flavor is rich roast and coffee ending with bitter burnt sugar and cocoa nibs.

Tmoney99 (10554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2011
RBWG 2011. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a heavy toasted malt, strong coffee and dark chocolate. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy complex toasted malt, vanilla and chocolate flavor and a heavy complex dark chocolate finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

Pours a nice mahogany with tan head. The aroma offers up loads of rich dark roasted coffee notes, dark chocolate, burnt toffee, more rich coffee and a faint sense of some sort of raspberry like esteriness. The taste is similar as it slide across the palate on a velvet carpet ushering in rich dark roasted coffee, burnt toffee, some chocolate and then slick oily rich coffee goodness into the finish.

Marvelous. What’s not to love about chocolate, coffee, and toffee? One of the most satisfying things about this beer, is its ability to have an amazing dark taste, with an incredibly light feel. A very refreshing stout. I am very proud and pleased to make this my first Ratebeer rating. Cheers.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALESMITH for sending this out for RBWG and much props to Dak and smokepot23 for coordinating it! Pours pitch black with a one finger light brown head that leaves delicate lacing. The nose is dominated by coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is burnt malt, baker’s chocolate, rich luscious dark roast java, ashy cocoa and some bitter hops in the finish. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Man, my favorite Imperial Stout on steroids. Fantastic beer.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2011 Rating #1700! Pours black with light brown head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Lots of coffee flavor with sweet milk chocolate and roasted malts. Some bitterness from the coffee. Full body with moderate carbonation. Great brew. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_npwPiFZu

Sampled @ RBWG courtesy of daknole & smokepot23...DAMN!!! Wasn’t sure I’d ever have a change to try this one but oh so glad I did!!! Everything about this beer improves as it warms. Aroma is robust, aggressive coffee (the best I must add) with cocoa, vanilla, and ash accompanying. Near black body with a thick latte cream that sits atop the brew and leaves significant lacing. Although this is tasty, not sure it matches the balance found in traditional Speedway. Perhaps a bit too coffee forward. This one also seems a bit thinner than Speedway in the bottle which does a magical job of coating the palate. Really damn good...without a doubt world-class but think I might opt for what I can pick up locally.
