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!

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 !

bytemesis (3099) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 20, 2013
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.

barn0216 (398) - California, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle shared by bytemesis. Black color. Light brown head but not much. Poured into a pint glass (only available), very little aroma to go on. Getting more chocolate and dried red fruits than coffee. Flavor is more overly coffee, ashy, cocoa, some alcohol, but nothing to write home about. Still a good stout but i don’t believe this is better than the original speedway.

From the bottle, black pour and a dark tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Flavor is roasty and sweet. A beautiful imperial stout. The Vietnamese version is better, but this is still tasty as hell.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2013
750 ml bottle from jenray- thanks, Jen! Long-time want. Pours an opaque midnight brown color with a thick, frothy tan head that settles slowly. Aroma of coffee, earth, dark fruits (plums, grapes, and apples?), vegetal notes, and dark chocolate. Initially it seems off but smooths into rich coffee and roast as it warms. The flavor, however, starts with intensely rich coffee and super bitter dark chocolate, and then smooths into something more drinkable as it warms. Like two completely different beers at 50 degrees and 65 degrees. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This may have been a 3.8 or so until I let it warm more. Even as it stands, this is my least favorite of the otherwise world class Speedway Stout lineup.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 75cl, at 12%Vol, exclusive American brew, with coffee, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex Stout, roasted/bitter and slightly spicy/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, rocky head, very good brew, yet very expensive!
