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 - Pours jet black. The coffee aroma is so great in this beer. The taste is coffee and chocolate. Itís very smooth and creamy. Speedway is great. With Kopi, itís even better.

Marsiblursi (3054) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
(Bottle) Pours black with a pale brown head. The aroma holds balanced but robust coffee profile, fruits, dark chocolate and a touch of alcohol. The nose is not Łber complex, yet perfect in balance, just as I like it. The flavour is light to medium sweet, medium bitter and a whisper of acidity. Coffee, balanced roast and balanced hops. The mouthfeel is fat, round and valvety and soft carbonation. Fantastic, complex finish. Near full bodied.

Chalumeaux (374) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Poured from 750 bottle, thanks Willrunforbeer. Pours dark chocolate with rich brown head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Taste is smooth and silky, like the Patriots trouncing the Colts 45 to 7. Notes of chocolate, coffee and an exceptional finish. This is a super beer.

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.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2010
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!

#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.
