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!

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.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, Stephen with the HUGE hookup. Dark back pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, big coffee, roast, hints of spice, nice roasty and toffee, nice dark fruits, roast, milk chocolate and vanilla, this is very nice. Taste is a nice mix of dark chocolate, roast, nice coffee, milky coffee and smooth espresso notes, nice dark fruits, molasses, hints of vanilla, finishing fairly bitter, roasted. Very, very nice,

Shared by dodgrblu at Capitol Beer bottle share. Pours dark brown with a short tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a carbonated treacle flavor with lots of coffee. Delicious and, as a bonus, it sticks to the palate.

Enjoyed on draft @ RBWG 2011 with a big thanks to Dak, Smokepot23, AleSmith and anyone else involved in bringing this goodness to Arizona. Pours dark brown/black with a medium sized tan head. The aroma has a hefty dose of quality dark roasted coffee, chocolate, char with some dark fruits mingling around. The flavor has big espresso, chocolate and roasted malt. Full bodied and smooth. This was worth the wait and definitely lived up to expectations.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 7, 2011
Pours a nice mahogany with tan head. The aroma offers up loads of rich dark roasted coffee notes, dark chocolate, burnt toffee, more rich coffee and a faint sense of some sort of raspberry like esteriness. The taste is similar as it slide across the palate on a velvet carpet ushering in rich dark roasted coffee, burnt toffee, some chocolate and then slick oily rich coffee goodness into the finish.

b3shine (8112) - Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with DrSilverworm and Dutch’s staff; thanks darkmoon66). Looks good; a dull black with light beige lacing. Smells good too; sweet, chocolatey, and malty with a nice Kopi presence. Tastes like it smells with an exceptionally smooth mouthfeel. Awesome juice; one of the best Kopi stouts I’ve had.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
75 cl bottle (12%) @ PBF Ⅸ Huge thanks to mr. tiong!
Aroma has mocha coffee, some tobacco, dark chocolate, ash and vegetables typical to coffee beers. Flavour has mocha, some dark and bitter chocolate and vegetables typical to mocha beers. Alcohol is well hidden and this is even a bit thin for this ABV. Alcohol notes get stronger towards the end of the glass. Rather good, but I must say that I expected more.
