4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. It’s medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Back to back with regular Speedway...I thought the regular version tasted better.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - thanks Stawn! Pous opaque black with a small brown head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is surprisingly not strong, notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Flavor is about the same, obviously coffee infused, but not strong or really noticeable as special. Lots of roasty chocolatey notes as well. Light sweet, light bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough, but not really even up to the level of a regular speedway IMO.
