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!

750mL courtesy of Shane. Awesome. Split 2 ways on Fat Tuesday. A: Viscous pour yields cirrus fluffy cappuccino head. Black like itís afraid of the light. Glass coating legs. N: Fudge, chocolate, and espresso bean. Vanilla edges. Berries round out the profile nicely. Has the deep lushness of the Kopi Luwak. Slightly nutty. Biscuit and some smoke/char. T: Sweet and somewhat savory. Very nutty - walnuts and pecans and loads of dark chocolate edged by smoke and leather. Coffee penetrates the soul of this beer as does the clean finish that Kopi Luwak is so famous for having. Hint s of crystallized honey and freshly tilled dirt. M: Viscous and coating. Alcohol is moderate, but does not burn. Can get slightly overbearing after too much. O: A deep experience worth having. Layered with depth, this is worthy of the accolades. Donít age.

Another great thanks to the Peter and Jakob for this unexpected treat. Pour jet black, with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is sooo packed with coffee, roasted coffee beans, chocolate, licorice, slight vanilla, slight boose ní wood, slight leather. Really a treat indeed. The taste is a little sweet up front, with a heavy dose of bitterness. Semi-full bodied, with a slightly flat carbonation. A little dry as well. To me, this shit is waaayy better than the "original" speedway. My kind of beverage

Smoother that regular speedway, still very rich, dark chocolate, roast, tons of coffee. Mouthfeel on this bottle seemed a little thin compared to what a remember from other variants, but it was still super awesome. Alcohol hidden so well itís insane. Great stuff.

Pitch black pour with nice foamy brown head. Aroma has essence of coffee, alcohol and chocolate. Nice subdued coffee up front, bitter chocolate at the mid, and a slightly sweet and creamy finish. Alcohol warming sensation. This drinks differently than most coffee stouts, and is much better than the regular speedway I had before.

Bottle @ DVMBBT: Medium sized brown foamy head on top of a pitch black colored beer. Aromas of coffee, roast, cream, light marzipan soapy chocolate tones... Flavours of coffee, chocolate, chalk, bitters, roast, cacoa, roasted malts... Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, coffee, roast, chocolate, mocha, bitters... Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, full bodied and a silky texture. Not inspringly complicated but very nice and balanced!

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of RobertDale, a fine fellow who has impeccable taste in beer & canines.
The beer pours perfectly black with a small head.

The aroma is rich & roasty with some dark chocolate, but more just a ton of coffee character. Itís got some rich vanilla and some booziness.

The flavor is just huge, itís got a bunch of coffee and rich maltiness. Itís ashy, somewhat sweet, but itís go t a nice warming boozy character and.. didi I mention? fabulously balanced roastiness.

This is one of those beers where itís hard to put a finger on why itís so great, except to say that it is just immensely enjoyable.
