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

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 from a trade, thanks CheapBeerBuzz! @ PBF IX
Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, roastiness, some hoppiness, espresso, minor fruitness and hoppiness. Taste is roasty and chocolatey with loads of coffee, espresso, some hints of dark ripe fruitness and cherry. Finish is roasty, bitter and very dry with some espresso and dark chocolate notes. Quite a coffee overload, not as perfectly balanced as the regular version.
