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!

Bottle shared at the get Dean to 5000 tasting, as Dean’s 5000 - yay! Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of massive roast, espresso, dark chocolate, fudge. Flavour is over moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Full bodied but missing some of the complexity of other top end imperial stouts. That said, still excellent.

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Backlogged rating from the RBSG 2014: Expected color and some head but not much lace, nice oily tears. Big time coffee overtones on both the nose and palate. Heavy roast, char, leather and ashy notes too. A bit herbal however and a major disappointment. Chewy someone dry mouth feel. For all the hype that this beer brought, it failed to meet them. Give me a regular old Speedway over this.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle for rating #5400:   Black pour, large frothy brownish head, clingy lacing.   Sweet and ashy roasted malts, sweetened coffee, a touch of bakers chocolate.   Smooth coffee infused roasted malts.   Cocoa and bakers chocolate too.   Can’te tell if this is regular Columbian coffee or coffee beans pooped out a cats anoooose.   Still, tastes great, and is very smooth.   Warming, slight alcohol.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Lots of coffee and bakers chocolate on the exit.   Not real complex, not as chewy as I would like, but its an extremely solid, clean, and tasty coffee oriented Imperial Stout.

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.

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.

TheAlum (6146) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
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.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2013
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.

From a 75 cl bottle, courtesy of _angst_. Black with beige head. Chocolate, coffee roasted malt aroma, slightly boozy, some notes of gunpowder. Full bodied, low to medium carbonation. Dry with slightly salty bitterness.
