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!

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.

750 ml bottle from jenray- thanks, Jen! Long-time want. Pours an opaque midnight brown color with a thick, frothy tan head that settles slowly. Aroma of coffee, earth, dark fruits (plums, grapes, and apples?), vegetal notes, and dark chocolate. Initially it seems off but smooths into rich coffee and roast as it warms. The flavor, however, starts with intensely rich coffee and super bitter dark chocolate, and then smooths into something more drinkable as it warms. Like two completely different beers at 50 degrees and 65 degrees. Medium-bodied, with a roasty, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This may have been a 3.8 or so until I let it warm more. Even as it stands, this is my least favorite of the otherwise world class Speedway Stout lineup.

On tap at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours a mostly blackish opaque with mahogany hues and a thin ring of light tan head. Aroma of rich, freshly ground coffee beans and bittersweet dark chocolate with some earthy roastiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and rich dark caramel and chocolate sweetness with a very assertive bitter roasty coffee bean flavor before a smooth, lingering dark chocolate finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness, but has an amazing coffee profile.

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.

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.

Growler shared with Theis on request from Doodler. Thanks a bunch. This was truly a pleasant surprise! It pours pitch black with a small tan head. The aroma is filled with coffee, vanilla, hard roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit and a light boozy kick. The flavour is very balanced with notes of coffee, chocolate, raisin, sweet tobacco, hard roasted malt, sweet caramel, light chili and warming alcohol. Creamy textured. It has a long sweet coffee caramel like finish. Amazing!

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.

drowland (6636) - 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.

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.
