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!

750 ml bottle @ PBF IX. Thanks tiong. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate muffin, some baking powder and biscuit. Rich flavour of roasted malts, espresso, earthiness, some pepper, biscuit, dark chocolate and some wooden notes. Full bodied and a dry, roasty, espresso finish. Coffee makes this way too dry. Alcohol comes through. Normal Speedway Stout is better.

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.

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.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Pitch black pour with a small brown head that fades. Big roasted coffee aromatics with coffee, chocolate, and a bit of alcoholic sourness that reminds of a barrel treatment. Rich coffee flavor with chocolate, creamy vanilla, char, and a bit of woodiness. Very silky mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very nice and glad to have tried it.

75 cl bottle (12.0% abv) @ PBF IX. Thanks tiong!
Pours black color with a small beige head. Lots of coffee here, espresso, some caramel notes and roasted malts, licorice, some hops also and faint vanilla notes. Roasted malts, chocolate, espresso, vanilla, faint licorice and wooden notes on the finish. Very smooth palate, complex flavor-wise, very pleasant, alcohol also well hidden at first but starts to burn a bit at the end. Excellent but not as mind-blowing as I expected.

On tap at RBWG- a huge thanks go out to Joe, Dak (that’s Doc you bastards) and AleSmith for this. Pours a totally black color with a medium beige head. A bursting coffee nose, roast, milky, even some smoke. The flavor is huge goodness; massive sweet milky chocolate coffee, the best cup you’ve ever had. Dark fruits, roast and some char. But this is all about the coffee, very smooth, actually insanely so. I had a few glasses to ponder, and I am very grateful. A rich creamy palate. Lovely.

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.
