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!

Christian (12570) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle @ The Lost Tasting Of Abbey Beers, late edition, Odense 2013. Black with a lasting tan head. Lots of coffee beans in the aroma, from putting your nose in a bag of espresso beans (good) to ashy, cold coffee (bad), along with dark chocolate, Sweetish, roasted flavour with licorice, coffee, and charcoal. Somewhat boozy alcohol

Scopey (11784) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
Bottle consumed at THE stouts tasting part 2, acquired via trade. It pours very dark brown with a thick tan head. The nose is rather rich, very earthy, roasted malt, rich coffee, peppery, wood, touch of smoke, toffee and cocoa. The taste is rich-roast, aniseed, liquorice, rich coffee, light acidity, bitter chocolate, some sweet toffee, ash, toast, burnt aspect, pepper and baking cocoa with a bitter, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Tastes more bitter than regular speedway to me. Interesting and pretty tasty, but I definitely prefer the regular version! I have drank a full bottle of Speedway to myself, but this would be more of a challenge.

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.
