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!

Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler. Pours black with a beautiful tan head that leaves minuscule lacing. Aromas are cream, coffee, dark fruit (blackberry, black cherry and plum, roast, licorice, cola and brown sugar. Flavors start with cream and vanilla, then coffee, toffee, caramel, plum, roast malt and blackstrap molasses. Palate is thick and gorgeous with a silkiness and decadence that is absent from a lot of beers. Overall, this is a stellar beer that really sets the bar for coffee stouts; completely amazing beer!

Been waiting for awhile to try this one. Regular Speedway is one of my favorites. BA Speedway is killer. Now onto the Kopi series. Pours adeep brown and sits black in the goblet. The signature tan foam remains around the glass after the head falls. Definitely has a sweet spot temperature-wise. The aroma is similar to standard Speedway, sweet, chocolatey, alcohol. Not really any coffee notes yet. The bitterness of the coffee comes through in the taste. This one is almost a bit sweeter than the standard version but seems a bit harsher on the back end of the taste it seems like the alcohol isnít masked as well. I will still enjoy all 750ml.

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.

Slayer85 (1041) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 14, 2013
750 ml bottle. An opaque pitch black beer, with a large, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (very strong coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted grain), with notes of licorice, alcohol, prunes/dark fruits, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Spectacular aroma, full of spicy, aromatic coffee and other nice aspects. Sweet taste, but less than expected. Surprisingly "thinner" and with a less creamy mouthfeel than the regular version and the booze feel is, in one word, perfect.

Bottle. Aroma: Coffee bomb! chocolate, coffee, and roasted qualities. Taste is coffee, chocolate with creamy finish. Clean, smooth and full bodied. Vietnamese is better in my opinion, but this is nothing short of greatness!

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
A: The pour is viscous and black, just like regular Speedway, with a nice tan head on top. S: The nose is full of some of the strongest coffee Iíve ever smelled. There are some notes of dark chocolate and roasted malt, but the coffee is the main attraction. T: The Kopi Luwak coffee is just really incredible. The flavor is so intense, unlike any other coffee beer Iíve had. There is a noticeable bitterness both from the coffee and the roasted malts, with a bit of dark, bitter chocolate. M: The body is incredibly full and rich with a low level of carbonation and a very creamy mouthfeel. D: This is an amazingly delicious beer that I would try again any time. The only "problem" is that the coffee is so intense that thereís only so much I can drink at once.

On tap at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours a mostly blackish opaque with mahogany hues and a thin ring of light tan head. Aroma of rich, freshly ground coffee beans and bittersweet dark chocolate with some earthy roastiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and rich dark caramel and chocolate sweetness with a very assertive bitter roasty coffee bean flavor before a smooth, lingering dark chocolate finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness, but has an amazing coffee profile.

Iíve had this beer several times, the first of which was at its initial release at rbsg 08. Iím 98.6% sure I had rated it at that time, to have my rating deleted upon the beer being excluded from the database, and not reappearing once the beer was added back. The last time I had it was at woodshop 5.0 during a black outed period, but there is a picture of me in line for it...in any event, this rating is from memory and you can suck it. It was better than reg. Speedway for sure...seemed to be a lot smoother and creamier with a more pronounced yet complimenting coffee character.

On tap at woodshop 5.0, rated 2/20/2010. Pours a deep, opaque brown. Aroma is completely dominated by delicious, roasty coffee. Tastes like creamy coffee, with just the right amount of roasty bitterness. No trace of the (substantial) alcohol anywhere, itís completely hidden. Bitterness tails of well in the finish, very smooth.

Growler shared with Theis on request from Doodler. Thanks a bunch. This was truly a pleasant surprise! It pours pitch black with a small tan head. The aroma is filled with coffee, vanilla, hard roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit and a light boozy kick. The flavour is very balanced with notes of coffee, chocolate, raisin, sweet tobacco, hard roasted malt, sweet caramel, light chili and warming alcohol. Creamy textured. It has a long sweet coffee caramel like finish. Amazing!
