Aroma is nice with sweet cocoa tones, some licorice and vanilla. Also mocha. Flavour has vanilla, some herbal vegetables, bitter coffee and grapefruity hops. Aroma was promising but flavour has some harsh bitterness and alcohol.

Pours pitch black with a smooth brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, coffee, beans, coconut, some vanilla and chocolate.

Well balanced and tasty coffee overdose.

RasmusOtt (1397) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2015
Bottle shared @ dangerous bottleshare #8 . Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, nice fruity coffee, vanilla, caramel, milk chocolate, sweet crackers and some butterscotch. The taste has nice french press fruity coffee, vanilla, dry liquorice, caramel and dark chocolate. Smooth and well balanced like the regular speedway. Coffee and chocolate is on point! Very good.

Vestergaard (698) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #8, thanks to Bursprak! Pours a pitch black with a big, dense, nut brown head. Aroma has huge coffee first of all. Fruity, light roasted coffee, lots of vanilla, both dark and milk chocolate, slight crackers. Taste has fruity coffee, roasty bitterness, chocolate and vanilla sweetness. All this with a crazy nice balance. Not a crazy beer, but the coffee is a really nice addition to the regular speedway together with the more explicit chocolate. Really really nice balance, and ultimately a really good beer! Full, but smooth body with a medium low carbonation.

Marheb (2824) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 9, 2015
(En fût à la brasserie on Padres opening day): Intense chocolaterie, flatterie torréfiée tenace et complexe dans un corps speedwaysque, sans surprise. L’astringence ou chaleur des grains de café est très longue en bouche, c’est ce qui frappe le plus.

Fritz123 (1274) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle shared with Brian at Castle Libation. Pours a jet black with a creamy mocha head that lasted. Aroma is amazing dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee, graham cracker, slight vanilla. Improved as it warmed. The taste was just as wonderful with the chocolate and cocoa nibs up front, creamy vanilla and some graham cracker on the mid section, and a slight bitter but flavorful coffee finish. Well balanced, creamy and silk mouth. Thick body. So fucking good! Need another bottle ASAP!

Bottle shared by Eddy. Pours dark brown/black color with light brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate. Mocha and roasted malt flavors. Full body with soft carbonation. Good stuff.
