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!

Ratebeer is making me do it again, another review from memory after this one got dumped from their data-base (the double coffee speedway ought to count too, but this site has become as childish as yelp). I remember this one as having a more distinct coffee taste from the original and a smoother roundness to the texture and taste.

Black color with brown foam. Huge green coffee, ash, earthy, dusty dry dark matter aromas. Rich, smooth mouthfeel. Flavors of dark fruit, earthy ashy herbal espresso coffee, hashish smoke, dirty hash pipe, dry chocolate--very different coffee IRS flavors here--very fucking good-- Thanks to daknole, smokebrew32, and ALESMITH for the keg at RBWG.

Scopey (5506) - 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.

750mL bottle, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of deep complex coffee notes - amazingly complex and deep - along with a little roast, but the weasel poop shines. Flavour brings out amazingly complex coffee notes - holy shit - never knew a rare, complex coffee could amplify the regular Speedway Stout so much! Other than complex coffee, there are subdued notes roasted malt, and some unsweetened cocoa. Amazingly complex as highly drinkable. The best rendition of Speedway Stout I’ve had. Incredible.

Another huge thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this bottle at the pre Big Texas Beer Fest tasting. Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of coffee and chocolate notes with a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some great, rich, nutty coffee notes as well as some milk chocolate and roasted malt. The alcohol is very well hidden. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding.

Aug 2, 2008 RSBG08 Batch Thanks again to Peter Zien and crew for this amazing beer. This Imperial stout pours a deep black color from the tap. A medium sized tan foamy head, with nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is coffee, some more coffee, some chocolate and some vanilla. A full bodied Imperial stout. The malts are roasty, with lots of chocolate and coffee flavors, add on top of that a very smooth mellow coffee flavor. Hints of vanilla at the finish. This is the coffee stout of coffee stouts. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter with some chocolate.

750 ml bottle via daknole. Thanks, Dakine! Shared at Davinci’s wedding. Congrats, Beejay! Pours a thicker blackish hue, opaque and thicker, well hazed. Darker with legs on the swirl. Cakey brownish head sits atop and sticks around, laces well and remains a cakey layer. Aromas are bigger coffee, gentle spice. Toasty roast, dark chocolate, bakers cocoa. Cocoa, biscuits and caramel. Nice dryness, roast present. Initial is fuller bodied, but still quite dry. Not thick and brooding. Some good big dark chocolate, bakers cocoa, mellow roast and coffee. Middle is a bit roasty, firmer coffee element. Touch of mocha, espresso. Firm roasty biscuits, cocoa covered. Some vanilla, coolness with roast, toast, carmelization. Some dryness, roast as we hit the backend. Finish is dry, roasty, carmelized. Lingering medium coffee. Firm cocoa/bakers chocolate throughout. Richer silky body, mellow roast and dryness linger on. Quite tasty. Reminds you how good Speedway is, guys. Tasty.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 75cl, at 12%Vol, exclusive American brew, with coffee, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex Stout, roasted/bitter and slightly spicy/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, rocky head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

750ml bottle, big thanks to b3shine for sharing! Pitch black color. Good thin brown head, leaves good lace. Sharp, exotic coffee in the nose, but also some nice dark chocolate, and toasted malts. Great big bitter taste, minimal sweet. No hint of the alcohol. Bigger body. Super smooth, light carbonation. Nice velvety smooth kind of chewy texture. Long super-awesome bitter coffee aftertaste. Love that kopi luwak - the already high-quality speedway stout base makes for a great balanced showcase of the coffee varietal, without being a coffee bomb - it’s a great amount of coffee, not overdone. Sublime brew. Great one to savor - good to the last dropping, indeed.

Thanks, Chris! Nose is super creamy with really nice coffee and a bit of vanilla. Chocolate and a bit of roast. Huge upgrade over regular Speedway.
