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!

brokensail (15214) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
A: The pour is viscous and black, just like regular Speedway, with a nice tan head on top. S: The nose is full of some of the strongest coffee I’ve ever smelled. There are some notes of dark chocolate and roasted malt, but the coffee is the main attraction. T: The Kopi Luwak coffee is just really incredible. The flavor is so intense, unlike any other coffee beer I’ve had. There is a noticeable bitterness both from the coffee and the roasted malts, with a bit of dark, bitter chocolate. M: The body is incredibly full and rich with a low level of carbonation and a very creamy mouthfeel. D: This is an amazingly delicious beer that I would try again any time. The only "problem" is that the coffee is so intense that there’s only so much I can drink at once.

RBWG 2011. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a heavy toasted malt, strong coffee and dark chocolate. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy complex toasted malt, vanilla and chocolate flavor and a heavy complex dark chocolate finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.
