gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2015
bottle at home. Pours dark chestnut with a small dark greyish beige head. Extremely intense coffee roast and cold coffee scent, with green paprica, loads of sweet toffee and caramel. Molasses as well. Thick sweet body, a bit of an aggrssive carbonation and coffee bitterness, taste is coffee all over the place, allbeit with a nice toffee aftertaste. Throughout obdy and taste there is quite some alcohol hidden as well. Very nice stout.

Pitch black pour, very time head leaving a small ring. Black coffee, deep roasted malt, dark chocolate, sugar. Heavier body. Alcohol hidden well but packs a punch.

5.5oz sample on tap in snifter. Minneapolis. Very rich and complex beer. Nose is very nice. Roasted barley, coffee notes, chocolate. Very dark color. Body was a bit thinner than expected. Dry taste, not very sweet at all. Long complex finish. Generally very good.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 On tap at Local Cantina in Grandview: may have been a mood thing, but I was slightly disappointed with this - relatively speaking. adding coffee to a stout I already like is usually a slam dunk. anyway - black pour, thin tan ring. aroma of chocolate, coffee, sugar, caramel. tastes are light coffee, ashy, sweet, vanilla, chocolate, little wood. oily palate. definitely complex, but think I somehow like the base better. -7.9 RERATE: definitely was a mood thing. awesome. milky coffee roasty even vanilla cocoa. Medium slick palate. 8.4

ACHops (1031) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2015
On tap @ Chuck’s CD. Pours thick inky blackish brown with thin oily dark brown head that fades quickly. Aroma is dark, rich roasty malt with tons of dark chocolate and heavily roasted coffee. Taste is rich perfectly roasted coffee, layer after layer of chocolate - dark, milk, bakers - all of it. Nice smooth barrel-aged notes on the finish. Some port, bourbon, vanilla... but not at all boozy in spite of 12%. Slightly thin mouthfeel for the style, and huge flavor, here; but quite coating and honestly doesn’t adversely affect it at all. Much more coffee and chocolate than standard Speedway. Rates slightly lower, but a world class beer by any measure, super rare, and definitely worth chasing down.

Trade with Hallinghansen. Cheers my friend. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Smooth and soft as always with speedway stout. Very good tasty coffee and a whiff of chocolate. Whisper of nuts and alcohol. Warming and very sippable. Lovely!

simont1 (497) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2015
Aroma of chocolate, mudcake, blackcurrant, strong coffee, slight hazelnut, very well rounded, and extremely good - more like very high quality cacao than chocolate, and same kind of blackcurrant / fruit note. Taste is filled with chocolate and coffee, with some nice inputs of vanilla and licorice. This is very very good, I had it next to the normal Speedway Stout which wasn’t impressive at all in comparison - they are like two completely different beers, this one has much more velvety mouthfeel and a darker head fluffy head - like a crema, great coffee beer.
