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!

Tap at RBWG-thanks to Alesmith for just giving this to us during our massive tasting session! Even though i didnt really like this beer, im glad to have been able to try it. pours black with a soapy kacki colored head. read tinge around the rim of the glass. initially very sweet chocloate on the flavors followed by a huge kick of anise, char, dark chocolate and alcohol. I really liked the chipolte version much better. cool and novel but not great if you ask me.

Draft at Woodshop 5.0. Many thanks to Chris and those involved for making this beer appear. Pours a very dark, chocolate-brown color; medium brown head with fine-bubbled lacing. Absolutely gorgeous coffee aroma: well-roasted, fresh, non-astringent, with hints of creamy milk chocolate; great nose. Medium-to-full body: very creamy texture, lively acidity, average levels of carbonation, but a lovely appearance in the mouth; loads of well-roasted coffee, chocolate, and a delicately roasted malt presence throughout; very soft, very lovely. Long, long finish of coffee, chocolate, and soft roast.

Tap at Woodshop. Huge, massive, coffee nose, far exceeding the regular Speedway by a mile. It’s very nice and fresh, the coffee has a good roast to it, but it’s more the quantity that is impressive rather than the quality of the coffee. Beyond the coffee, it’s typical Speedway, which is always very solid. It’s a real shame that so many of the ratings are from handbottles now (which I’ve had and I probably would have rated the bottle in the 3.5 range rather than the 4.3 on tap). It’s a joke, but I guess the tick is the most important part for some people.

Bottle shared generously by Hayden with Bill, Mike and Hayden, poured deep black with medium, tiny bubbled off white head, good lace. Notes of coffee, espresso, chocolate, roasty malt, the coffee really shines through on this regular version. I would be surpised if this wasn’t the best speedway I have tried. On to the B.A. Version.

from RBSG 2008 Aug 1, 2008 Wow. This is an incredibly tasty stout that Peter Zien & crew rolled out for the 2008 RBSG. Black pour, tan head, great coffee & roasty flavor and aroma. Gorgeous mouthfeel. Very tasty.

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

Sample @ Woodshop. Been waiting quite a while to try this brew. Pours motor oil black with a thick chocolate head, great lacing left on the tulip. Nose was bursting with fresh brewed coffee, cocoa dust and bittersweet chocolate. Very coating on the palate with coffee and chocolate. Pretty damn tasty stuff.

2013 vintage, shared bottle out of Adam Jackson’s cellar. Can’t thank you enough!! The nose has a strange Earthiness that I can only connect to fresh cut blades of grass. NOT hops but the grass after you cut it and it sat on the ground awhile. The flavor is dark fruits, roast and a finely brewed, subtle coffee bean. Earthy flavors. Unlike any coffee bean I have ever experienced before. The uniqueness of this brew overwhelms me. This is unlike any other coffee stout I have ever had. I do NOT gives ratings like this often. This is worthy.

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.
