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!

750ml bottle from Alesmith. Nose is marsupially pooped coffee, chocolate, roast, and a hint of vanilla. Black with a big, heavy lacing cinnamon tan head. Flavor is chocolate, expresso, white pepperiness, light bitterness, and light sweetness.

Bottle. Opaque black pour with thick tan foam, very pretty. Aroma is a bit destabilizing. I was expecting a nice roasty coffee aroma, instead I get a really weird vegetal bomb like wet grass. After a couple of sniffs, things start to settle down and I perceive some chocolate/fudge and light, unroasted coffee notes. Still, the whole thing is a bit disturbing. Taste is more inline with what you’d expect from a coffee stout except this one was super bitter, lots of roasted coffee bitterness, acrid and somewhat unpleasant. Drinkable, but very difficult - I couldn’t tackle a 750 by myself, that’s for sure.

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 beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of RobertDale, a fine fellow who has impeccable taste in beer & canines.
The beer pours perfectly black with a small head.

The aroma is rich & roasty with some dark chocolate, but more just a ton of coffee character. It’s got some rich vanilla and some booziness.

The flavor is just huge, it’s got a bunch of coffee and rich maltiness. It’s ashy, somewhat sweet, but it’s go t a nice warming boozy character and.. didi I mention? fabulously balanced roastiness.

This is one of those beers where it’s hard to put a finger on why it’s so great, except to say that it is just immensely enjoyable.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, prune, molasses and coffee. Thick with a tang and some heat. Taste is dark chocolate, dark roast and burnt sugar. Develops more depth with espresso, fudge brownie and toasted coconut. A little bit too much coffee now.

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.

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 4˝ oz glasses weren’t easy to finish. I prefer the regular version.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 750ml courtesy of TF again. Appreciate the generosity... Pours similar to the original with a deep silky black with auburn edges and topped with a creamy light beige head... Aroma is smoother than the previous with more of an earthy roast as opposed to bitter but doesn’t necessarily extremely assertive. A tough of yeast seems to come into play as well and becomes more prominent after warming almost develops into a green apple note which seems odd.. Semi-sweet earthy roasted coffee. Smoothness throughout with coinciding chocolate fudge notes. Thinner bodied overall and more so than expected with a soft prickly carbonation. Better than the original but pales to say something like final push. That yeast profile throws thing off for a loop
