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!

Vestergaard (1748) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle thanks to Zakoon @ CBC Volunteers Party. Pours a pitch black with a tan, creamy head. Aroma has roasty malts, coffee, caramel, prunes, dates, slight licorice and some dark chocolate. Taste is roasty, dark malty, dark fruits, salt, hints of smoke, lots of pretty hard roasted coffee. Pretty sweet. Smooth body, low carb. Expected more, but still a good beer.

Une robe brune foncée, je ne commente pas la mousse. Un nez de chocolat au café. Une bouche intense, amère, piquante en bouche (amertume), une texture passablement liquide. Le picotement me dérange.

Noir et épais. Le liquide montre aussi une belle mousse brune. Au nez, enrobants arômes de café, de chocolat, de caramel, de réglisse, de houblons, de torréfaction et de charbon de bois. Au goût, les saveurs de café poivré et de malts sont grandement appréciées par mes papilles. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-fort avec un pétillement ajusté et une texture huileuse. En finale, une amertume fabriquée par le café et une chaleureuse accolade de l’alcool.

radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Consumed like 2 years ago, from a bottle. Poured a smooth dark, almost black-brown color with a nice small brown head. Aroma was rich coffee and chocolate, dark, molasses malt notes to it as well. Flavor was chocolate, roast and of course, coffee.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours thick pitch black with thick mocha head. This beer is pure decadence. Aroma has some liquor at first, cocoa, fruity figs, burnt figs, coffee berries. All this on a malty roasty background with tons of fresh pressed coffee and fresh grounded beans. Taste is same, awesome balance. Really fruity coffee, rosy malts, cocoa and chocolate. Quite some fudge and caramel notes. Light body for abv with light carbonation, almost coffee like. Finish is roasty and lasts for a long time. Warming, yet no presence of alcohol.

Zakoon (483) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle enjoyed @ CBC Frivillig fest. Pours pitch black with a creamy beige head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is dates, plums, prunes, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla,chocolate, coconut and some earthiness. Flavour is lightly sweet and light bitter. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Finish is the same as the aroma with a nice warming alcohol touch.

ctipping (1411) - Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2015
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Jet black with a nice khaki head. Great retention. Chunky bubbles on the surface. A little bit leggy on the swirl. Intense coffee aroma. Reminds me of Vietnamese Speedway, which shouldn’t surprise me. Slightly fruity coffee notes. Deep chocolate. Very intense coffee flavor, same slight fruity character as the nose. Nice chocolate and deep roast. Delicious, but very coffee-centric. Chewy. Nice body. Intense bitterness, as much from the coffee as anything. Delicious, but not significantly better than regular Speedway.
