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!

Ratebeer is making me do it again, another review from memory after this one got dumped from their data-base (the double coffee speedway ought to count too, but this site has become as childish as yelp). I remember this one as having a more distinct coffee taste from the original and a smoother roundness to the texture and taste.

Aug 2, 2008 RSBG08 Batch Thanks again to Peter Zien and crew for this amazing beer. This Imperial stout pours a deep black color from the tap. A medium sized tan foamy head, with nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is coffee, some more coffee, some chocolate and some vanilla. A full bodied Imperial stout. The malts are roasty, with lots of chocolate and coffee flavors, add on top of that a very smooth mellow coffee flavor. Hints of vanilla at the finish. This is the coffee stout of coffee stouts. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter with some chocolate.

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. I’d love to try this again, seems like the hand bottle hurt the overall experience of this.

Pailhead (5097) - 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. It’s medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Back to back with regular Speedway...I thought the regular version tasted better.

Bottle shared by a friend. Black pour with a huge tan to light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, roast, coffee and cooked meat. Smooth and velvety coffee flavor with some malt and milk chocolate character before a roasty coffee finish.

Thanks, Chris! Nose is super creamy with really nice coffee and a bit of vanilla. Chocolate and a bit of roast. Huge upgrade over regular Speedway.

Bottle @ Stouts Tasting Pt II. The pour’s deep brown with a beautiful, tight tan head. You can’t 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 don’t 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. There’s a little too much acidity on the finish for my tastes.
