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!

UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Draft... RBSG ’08... This beer rocks!... Pours midnight black with a mid-sized, creamy, light brown head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is of dark chocolate, espresso grounds and black charcoal malt. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Initially, the flavor is slightly sweet, then the heavy bitterness and moderate acidity kick in. Finishes bitter, acrid, carbonous, and then very dry. This stuff is The Shit!

Woodshop 5.0 The perfect stout. Absolutely lives up to the hype and more. Black pour. Aroma...wow. Chocolate galore. Wonderfully fresh ground coffee...and damn good coffee. Some light toffee notes, and more coffee and chocolate. Flavor is so balanced between amazing dark chocolate, coffee, and some earthy bitterness...I am having a hard time putting the flavors into words. It was another world tasting this beer. Kudos and cheers to the guys and Alesmith. Wow.

Bottle @ Van Moll tasting shared by Countbeer. Many thanks Kamiel! Opaque pitch black color, medium to full sized light brown head that lasts for a long time. Aroma and taste are malts, roastyness, coffee, bitter, some hops, lightly spicy, a hint of pepper. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice!

12oz handbottle thanks to ygtbsm94. Pours a flat lighter amber that looks decently black in the glass with zero head. Nose is heavy aromatic coffee, lemon acidity, dark chocolate fudge, brown sugar, toasted malt. Flavor is sweet, creamed coffee, mocha and espresso with creamy Kahlua heat. Medium bodied albeit thin for style. Nice roasted coffee finish. Consider this rating a place holder until I get to try it on nitro fresh in southern California. And oh will that day be a reckoning.

Rating 3300! DAMN! I don’t drink regular speedway all that often, but when I do it is subtly impressive. There is nothing subtle about this version. IT ROCKS! Pours inky black with a large tan head over a opaque black hole of a body. CRAP [no pun intended]! There is a TON OF COFFEE in the aroma! Grassy nearly. A bit of creamer. Damn, it is so strong. By far the most complex coffee I have ever put my nose too. It is more coffee like than coffee (sounds corny, but wait until you try it!). Wow, flavor is all rich nuances on the coffee theme. Absolutely stunning. What is really shocking is how drinkable it is. I could have this stuff all night. Absolutely no hint of 12.2% whatsoever! Creamy carbonation. Reading over my notes, I count the word "awesome" 11 times if that gives you any hint of how much I like this stuff. The funny thing is that I don’t really drink all that much coffee (as I don’t like hot beverages). This stuff is awesome! Heck of a beer!
