COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on of the worldís 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 Diegoís Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

kermis (4922) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle shared at the get Dean to 5000 tasting, as Deanís 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.

nimbleprop (4759) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2010
12oz handbottle pours a flat black with zero head. Nose is nice, aromatic coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, toasted malts. Flavor is sweet, smooth coffee, Kahlua, toasted bread. Medium bodied, roasted finish. Iíd love to try this again, seems like the hand bottle hurt the overall experience of this.

Pailhead (4742) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate coffee, chocolate, and a hint of black licorice. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger beige head. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate and a hint of black licorice. The finish has moderate - heavy roasted coffee and a touch of vanilla. Itís medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Back to back with regular Speedway...I thought the regular version tasted better.

Boutip (4677) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of deep roasted barley malt with notes of dry coffee also dominating. Taste is a mix between some deep dry roasted malt notes with bitter and dry coffee notes which almost veers into astringency territory. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good but almost too extreme on the coffee side which diminish the drinkability.

jackl (4560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle @ Stouts Tasting Pt II. The pourís deep brown with a beautiful, tight tan head. You canít deny that Speedway and its variants look gorgeous in the glass. The nose is big, rich roasted malts. Creamy milk chocolate. Rich toffee coffee milkshake. Mild lactose. Hints of char, burnt creme brulee. I donít get much coffee on the nose in this sample. The taste is quite acidic roast espresso bean. Rich earthy malt profile. Burnt caramel-covered brownie. Quite bitter on the finish. Full body, thick and oily. Overall, quite good. Thereís a little too much acidity on the finish for my tastes.
