Une robe brune foncée, je ne commente pas la mousse. Un nez de chocolat au café. Une bouche intense, amère, piquante en bouche (amertume), une texture passablement liquide. Le picotement me dérange.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Noir et épais. Le liquide montre aussi une belle mousse brune. Au nez, enrobants arômes de café, de chocolat, de caramel, de réglisse, de houblons, de torréfaction et de charbon de bois. Au goût, les saveurs de café poivré et de malts sont grandement appréciées par mes papilles. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-fort avec un pétillement ajusté et une texture huileuse. En finale, une amertume fabriquée par le café et une chaleureuse accolade de l’alcool.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Consumed like 2 years ago, from a bottle. Poured a smooth dark, almost black-brown color with a nice small brown head. Aroma was rich coffee and chocolate, dark, molasses malt notes to it as well. Flavor was chocolate, roast and of course, coffee.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours thick pitch black with thick mocha head. This beer is pure decadence. Aroma has some liquor at first, cocoa, fruity figs, burnt figs, coffee berries. All this on a malty roasty background with tons of fresh pressed coffee and fresh grounded beans. Taste is same, awesome balance. Really fruity coffee, rosy malts, cocoa and chocolate. Quite some fudge and caramel notes. Light body for abv with light carbonation, almost coffee like. Finish is roasty and lasts for a long time. Warming, yet no presence of alcohol.

Bottle enjoyed @ CBC Frivillig fest. Pours pitch black with a creamy beige head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is dates, plums, prunes, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla,chocolate, coconut and some earthiness. Flavour is lightly sweet and light bitter. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Finish is the same as the aroma with a nice warming alcohol touch.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Jet black with a nice khaki head. Great retention. Chunky bubbles on the surface. A little bit leggy on the swirl. Intense coffee aroma. Reminds me of Vietnamese Speedway, which shouldn’t surprise me. Slightly fruity coffee notes. Deep chocolate.
Very intense coffee flavor, same slight fruity character as the nose. Nice chocolate and deep roast. Delicious, but very coffee-centric. Chewy. Nice body. Intense bitterness, as much from the coffee as anything. Delicious, but not significantly better than regular Speedway.

I am not sure if the 2011 bottle was too old but I enjoy the regular Speedway Stout over this.

Bottle split between two snifters. Pour was an oily black with a two-finger mocha colored head. Nice lacing, nice legs and solid retention. Aromas are of coffee, chocolate covered cherries, roasted hickory notes and a note of molasses. Taste is incredibly balanced. Loads and loads of coffee hit the palate. Both bitter and sweet notes. Espresso like. Chocolate, anise, dark fruit...an alcohol note, but very well hidden....brown sugar, marshmallow and some roasted nuttiness round the body out. Nice velvety mouthfeel...moderate bitterness and a lingering chocolate note. Great beer!
