UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 On tap at brewery, San Diego. Black with mocha foam. Aroma is lovely - chocolate vanilla, mild mocha. Nice! Taste is definitely stronger on the coffee - quite bitter compared to regular speedway. Still very drinkable like original base beer. Finish is a bite of bitterness - lingering coffee. Overall, lovely, but maybe a bit overly bitter for me. Still great.

Thanks, Brad, for sending this my way. Nose is big coffee, smooth vanilla, almost lactose sweetness, big roast and chocolate notes. Palate is smooth but thick. Flavors are bold chocolate and roast but not overbearing. Very nice.

I was excited to finally try this brew. There were obvious signs of coffee, vanilla, some caramel and chocolate... While oxidation combined them all quite nicely. The flavors were pretty much the same, only getting bolder as it warmed up. Thanks for the share, OmegaX.

Bottle. Pitch black with creamy tan head. Intensely aromatic nose with brown chocolate and coffee (light vegetal) along with spices (cinnamon, chile). Taste is rich and mellow chocolate with a cinnamon twist. Palate is awesome: rich and fluffy. Probably my favorite aromatic stout.

Bottle shared with and courtesy of Kermis. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is big roasted malt, coffee, creamy caramel. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich, smooth alcoholic spice liqorice palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation and a luxurious oily mouthfeel. A king of beers.
