Percy0103 (653) - MEXICO - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. A dark beer with minimal brown head. Deep aroma of coffee, dried fruits, malt and alcohol. Taste is very bitter with a lot of sweetness at the end. Robust bodied, oily, with faint carbonation and a deep coffee character. Unexpected sweet finish, full of biscotti and coffee.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
2016-08-27. Black body small brown head and lace. 3+ Aroma is an alcoholic melange of sweet dark malt, light roast and cocoa. Whisper of Hershey’s syrup. 7++ Flavour is rich, sweet dark malt, dry roast, finishes fairly bitter with roast coffee and hoppy bitterness. Smoother in the middle than expected it sort of crescendos in the finish. Smooth medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. Wow. Lovely but intense. 7-8/3-4/8/4+/16+ On tap at Thin Man, Buffalo, NY.

blipp (8275) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Rich and sweet mocha coffee, vanilla, mild-moderate roast, and creamy chocolate sweetness. A bit on the sweet side, but rich and delicious.

neongolden (1265) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2016
(On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen, May 15 2016) Pours inky black with a small tan ring of head. Aroma is pungent earthy coffee, praline, chocolate cake, moderate roast, fairly dry, more brewed than bean character. Palate is fairly dry and long on earthy, chocolate-inflected coffee character. Moderate caramel, toasted bready grain, soft vanilla. Coffee bitterness and dark rye on the finish. Medium-full body, soft carbonation, a bit of alcohol, nice balance. My notes are not the best but this is a top flight Speedway variant, dry and rich in flavours from the coffee chosen. Lovely stuff.

jbruner (4117) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Pours an opaque black from the bomber with fluffy tan brown head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of big roasty malts, awesome coffee, light roast cold press, hint of chocolate and cream. Taste is dead on to a Vietnamese coffee, cream and spice and light roast, amazing. Booze is super well hidden, warming as you drink more though, thick and viscous. Really nice.

Slipstream (2480) - USA - AUG 5, 2016
On tap at the Upper West Side beer shop. Excellent brew! Superior to the regular Speedway imo. Rich malts, smoky, a little coffee and vanilla bean. Top of the line in every way.

Draft at Wheatberry. No idea this was available in Michigan. Description on the menu, which I should have photographed because the online link is broken, mentioned the Vietnamese coffee, so I’m putting my rating here. First of all, this was way too drinkable for 12% ABV, holy crap. Rich if not overly intense aromas of cocoa, coffee, and caramel (served a little colder than necessary, possibly muting some aromas). Even presents some wispy lemony citrus aromas. Dark brown to black pour with slightest ring of brown-mocha head. Decently sweet, but more bitter in flavor. Full bodied, soft, rich and dessert like, finishing with lingering coffee bitterness. Really cool to have the opportunity to try this on draft in my neck of the woods. Fun experience, and a great coffee beer.

dnstone (2708) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Fudgecicle and booze aroma. Hazed chocolate-brown color. Light bodied with chocolate-coffee, creamy (like a fudgecicle) flavor, with a chocolate, alcohol finish. Notes: On tap at World of Beer Denver for GABF week ’15
