On tap @ O’brien’s Night of a Million Zillion Speedways. Black with a small creamy mocha head. Aroma of smooth mellow coffee, chocolate, with light notes of earthiness, vanilla and alcohol. Flavor is lots of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some bitter dark malt. Full body with light carbonation and very long finish. Damn good beer, the coffee aroma and flavor is very strong but not acidic at all. Think I like the regular version slightly better.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, Stephen with the HUGE hookup. Dark back pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, big coffee, roast, hints of spice, nice roasty and toffee, nice dark fruits, roast, milk chocolate and vanilla, this is very nice. Taste is a nice mix of dark chocolate, roast, nice coffee, milky coffee and smooth espresso notes, nice dark fruits, molasses, hints of vanilla, finishing fairly bitter, roasted. Very, very nice,

I had this at O’briens during Beer Week in San Diego. Coffee, Coffee, Coffee. Like an Espresso shot . Jet Black like motor oil, with a toast-brown head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation. I liked this beer but it was a bit over the top for me.

750mL courtesy of Shane. Awesome. Split 2 ways on Fat Tuesday.
A: Viscous pour yields cirrus fluffy cappuccino head. Black like it’s 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. Don’t 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 n’ 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

A- pitch black with medium mocha tan head. Good lacing.
S-decident coffee is strong with chocolate, espresso, vanilla, leather, rich earth and vegetable notes. Chalk and charcoal on the dry end.
T-rather airy and light, but full of coffee and bakers chocolate. Mocha, vanilla, molasses, earth and the faint sting of alcohol. Tangy cacao comes in the middle. Some sporadic vegetable notes. Ashy dry bitter ending.
M-rich bit light. Full bodied, full of flavor and a little sticky and syrupy with good carb.

Flavors of dark fruit, earthy ashy herbal espresso coffee, hashish smoke, dirty hash pipe, dry chocolate--very different coffee IRS flavors here--very fucking good-- Thanks to daknole, smokebrew32, and ALESMITH for the keg at RBWG.
