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!

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 I’ve 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 I’ve 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 there’s only so much I can drink at once.

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!

#399 baby, wait till you see #400!!!! Anyways, back to the beer. Dark brown pour. Fantastic coffee and chocolate aromas. Superbly balanced with dark chocolate, black coffee, and wonderful roasted malt flavors. Not overly bitter but at the same time not overly sweet. Again the balance of flavors in this Imperial Stout is phenomenal. This bad boy lives up to the hype......

Pours a nice mahogany with tan head. The aroma offers up loads of rich dark roasted coffee notes, dark chocolate, burnt toffee, more rich coffee and a faint sense of some sort of raspberry like esteriness. The taste is similar as it slide across the palate on a velvet carpet ushering in rich dark roasted coffee, burnt toffee, some chocolate and then slick oily rich coffee goodness into the finish.

RBWG 2011. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a heavy toasted malt, strong coffee and dark chocolate. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy complex toasted malt, vanilla and chocolate flavor and a heavy complex dark chocolate finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

Thanks to Aaron for this long time want. Pours black as night with a one finger mocha head. Aromas of dark fruits, coffee, cherry, almonds and a hint of vanilla. Flavors of this beer do not dissapoint. Velvety mouthfeel and full bodied. Malt sweetness finishes with a bitter coffee like finish. Awesome beer.

Bottle shared by a friend. Black pour with a huge tan to light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, roast, coffee and cooked meat. Smooth and velvety coffee flavor with some malt and milk chocolate character before a roasty coffee finish.

Long time want. I’m a big fan of Alesmith Speedway Stout and I thoroughly enjoy my morning cup of quality coffee. I’m in a happy place right now. The beer is near black with a thin beige head. The aroma brings a grandiose coffee presence. Roast and dark chocolate with fresh coffee beans. The flavor is just beautiful. Hype = justified. Beautiful coffee presence, which I expected. However, it doesn’t stop there. Many big coffee imperial stouts possess the prominent coffee scents, but lack balance and qualities typical of an imperial stout. Not so here. Lovely malt body and roast character with coffee fitting itself elegantly into an already delicious beer. Lovely.

Another huge thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this bottle at the pre Big Texas Beer Fest tasting. Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of coffee and chocolate notes with a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some great, rich, nutty coffee notes as well as some milk chocolate and roasted malt. The alcohol is very well hidden. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding.
