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!

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.

This was an amazing beer that was produced by Peter for the 2008 festival Rate Beer Summer Gathering. Peter was very generous and supportive to the site to do so. The beer was black with a beautiful dark brown head. The aroma and flavor had gobs of milk chocolate and very smooth full black coffee. The flavor had more of a bitter sweet chocolate than milk. This was more intense, flavorful and delicious than the original. Where this blows away other coffee beers is the smoothness and real taste of fresh coffee. It didn’t have the tart roast or two day spent grind smell/flavor. This was like an amazing cup of coffee with a milk chocolate bar and shot of alcohol in it. Full bodied and silky with great warmth. My wife needs to fill my cup with this every morning. After 7 pours I give this a 10/5/10/5/20

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2013 Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to pandableh! Black with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of coffee (but we can easily get the difference with the regular speedway), vegetal notes, earthy presence, roasted malt, caramel and slight fruity notes. Taste is moderately sweet with vegetal notes again, coffee and moderate bitterness. Alcohol and bitterness are more present than in the regular Speedway, probably because the Kopi Luwak coffee is more subtle (?). Creamy mouthfeel, but less than the regular Speedway. Full body. Quite complex, but there’s a lack of balance (again, in comparison to regular Speedway) that make it hard to drink... even our 4½ oz glasses weren’t easy to finish. I prefer the regular version.

Bottle @ a recent tasting... Poured pitch black with a mild forming, light brown head. Some retention. Crazy amount of coffee on this beast. More so than regular Speedway. Intense, concentrated coffee with mild coffee roast, bitterness, and acid. Dark grains, charred tones, toasted sweetness added more complexity to this awesome beer. Dark cocoa, mocha, and some alcohol booze in there. One to sip and savor.

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.

Bottle thanks to mashmaster. Thanks! Poured a really dark black, not much head. Aroma is nice, rounded, smooth, smoky coffee. Very rich. Very earthy and semi-sweet in the taste. Nice beer for certain.

2013 Release, 750ML in a wine glass at room temp

A - Pours pitch black but not as oily as I expected. Huge 4 finger leathery head that fades to a finger leaving behind really nice lacing very sticky.

S - Nose is very earthy, nutty and roasted. Coffee is there but it’s dominated by a very earthy almost dirt like nose with some oak.

T - Wow. I have no idea how to place this. Super acidic coffee bean texture, lots of muddy earthy and nutty notes with a delicate floral finish. This is simply about the coffee taste. Beyond that, milk chocolate, almonds and some cherries. Very rich and decadent and almost delicate like a mudslide meets shot of espresso. I can’t really describe it but very tasty.

M - Heavy body although a thin and oily finish. Very delicate and sort of remarkable. Leaves a nutty coffee taste around for a long time after drinking.

O - This is a great coffee stout. Probably one of the best coffee stouts I’ve ever had. Is it just Speedway (which has a great base beer) or is it the "shitty" beans they used? I honestly don’t know but wow. Worth seeking out.
