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!

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler. Pours black with a beautiful tan head that leaves minuscule lacing. Aromas are cream, coffee, dark fruit (blackberry, black cherry and plum, roast, licorice, cola and brown sugar. Flavors start with cream and vanilla, then coffee, toffee, caramel, plum, roast malt and blackstrap molasses. Palate is thick and gorgeous with a silkiness and decadence that is absent from a lot of beers. Overall, this is a stellar beer that really sets the bar for coffee stouts; completely amazing beer!

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
750mL bottle, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of deep complex coffee notes - amazingly complex and deep - along with a little roast, but the weasel poop shines. Flavour brings out amazingly complex coffee notes - holy shit - never knew a rare, complex coffee could amplify the regular Speedway Stout so much! Other than complex coffee, there are subdued notes roasted malt, and some unsweetened cocoa. Amazingly complex as highly drinkable. The best rendition of Speedway Stout I’ve had. Incredible.

Smoother that regular speedway, still very rich, dark chocolate, roast, tons of coffee. Mouthfeel on this bottle seemed a little thin compared to what a remember from other variants, but it was still super awesome. Alcohol hidden so well it’s insane. Great stuff.

Midnight black with coffee head. Smells of coffee and malt in the nose. Smooth taste but coffee not really around until the finish. Good, but expecting a little more here.

Jesterdeal (1640) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2013
I mean really? Aroma of super amazing coffee, cappuccino and vanilla bean. Taste is amazing. Roasty coffee is just right with chocolate sweetness and a chewy roast nut finish. Perfection.

since i drankt my previous what, 30? most wanted beers, this was a most wanted for quite some time ! since i didnt get mine, cause the post ’lost’ may package ( no refund at all, just ... ARGH still pisses me off) lucky for me, bobochamps has fixed a bottle, and shared it with me . epic ! pours next to black, very small , thin layer of brown foam, wich fades in a ring almost imidiatly . smell has nice details of coffee, withoud being straight-forward cofee infused. gentle ! MY GOHD so ... soooo good ! its been a while since i last had the regular, but from what i remember, it was one of the ( the ?) best non-ba, non-infused, non-mixed etc imperial stout i had. this is even better. very gentle coffee, chocolate ( a bit less than the regular, to me ) very soft carbo, bitterness, sweet, roasted malts (not overpowering) very smooth ! buttery.. complex waawtch.. again, another beer that shocks me . i’m living an exeptional life, the last months ... this is another chapter in the book of best beers ever. thanx ignace !

Bottle - thanks Stawn! Pous opaque black with a small brown head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is surprisingly not strong, notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Flavor is about the same, obviously coffee infused, but not strong or really noticeable as special. Lots of roasty chocolatey notes as well. Light sweet, light bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough, but not really even up to the level of a regular speedway IMO.
