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!

Boutip (4856) - 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.

750ml bottle shared by Brad. Wow. Mellow, especially for the ABV. Choco-coffee aroma. Perfect mouthfeel, very impressive, completely perfect on the palate. Big coffee, refined molasses awesomeness. World Class coffee beer all the way.

This one poured a dark cola brown with a medium tan head. Aroma was lots of dark deep roasted coffee, dark chocolate and lightly burnt malts with a decent scent of booze. Flavor was the same but a little mmore intense. The liquid rounded this one off better than the normal speedway and the booze is hidden pretty well. Have’nt had many better non BA stouts.

Sample at O’Brien’s. Man, the coffee in this is so freaking good, the blend is so complex, probably the best coffee I have ever smelled. I could just smell this beer, it is so delicious. Flavor is also dominated by roasted coffee, with side notes of milk chocolate, nuts, and light vanilla. Creamy mouth feel, with the abv completely hidden. Damn good.

RBSG "THE SHIT":
This was an amazing beer that was produced by Peter for the 2008 festival Rate Beer Summer Gathering. Peter was very generous and supportive to the site to do so. The beer was black with a beautiful dark brown head. The aroma and flavor had gobs of milk chocolate and very smooth full black coffee. The flavor had more of a bitter sweet chocolate than milk. This was more intense, flavorful and delicious than the original. Where this blows away other coffee beers is the smoothness and real taste of fresh coffee. It didn’t have the tart roast or two day spent grind smell/flavor. This was like an amazing cup of coffee with a milk chocolate bar and shot of alcohol in it. Full bodied and silky with great warmth. My wife needs to fill my cup with this every morning. After 7 pours I give this a 10/5/10/5/20

boFNjackson (4171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle @ a recent tasting... Poured pitch black with a mild forming, light brown head. Some retention. Crazy amount of coffee on this beast. More so than regular Speedway. Intense, concentrated coffee with mild coffee roast, bitterness, and acid. Dark grains, charred tones, toasted sweetness added more complexity to this awesome beer. Dark cocoa, mocha, and some alcohol booze in there. One to sip and savor.

750ml bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of strong coffee, a lot of roasted malts, some chocolate, a little dough, and some light bitterness. Flavor very, very strong of coffee with a good Imperial stout under it. Smooth texture. A great beer.
