3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brewed summer 2013. Decent stout and coffee, bit coffee appeared a bit musty. Drinkable and decent but somewhat disappointing compared to hype.

750 with the crew and alongside regular speedway, jamaica, and barrel aged. Much creamier and smoother milk chocolate and roasty malt profile. Decent bit of coffee and roasted malt presence. Dark fruit comes through really well, plum and cherry. Medium coffee aromas and flavors.

Dark inky black pour.... Velvety body... Light tan head... Aroma of milk chocolate, light coffee notes.... Flavor is sweet milk chocolate with light spicy coffee notes... Hard to believe there's no lactose... Some nuts, totally unique coffee, berries... Great beer

Bomber from a trade. Pours opaque black, medium supper creamy brown head, great lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, ashtray, molasses, chocolate. Flavor is much the same, light plus sweet and medium bitter, some coffee acidity. Rich creamy full mouth feel, lingering bitter finish. Tasty!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Brouwer’s, Seattle. Quite dark brown-black, dark head. Tart dark fruit, subdued smoky coffee. Body is full of alc sweetness. Some dry bitter coffee roast coming through to balance slightly. Licorice notes. Quite hot, I’d rather try this less fresh I think.

750ml bottle, generously shared by WillRunForBeer. Poured black with a thin mocha head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. We compared this side by side with regular Speedway, and this one was definitely on the sweeter side. Not as harsh and boozy. Full bodied and smooth.
