Howler from Casanova brought by bananabi11, and shared with him. Thanks E, Iím excited!! Black pour with a brown head. Opaque. Good head. Great start, works for me. Aroma has big coffee. Huge coffee. Lots of chocolate. Very roasty. Taste is heavy espresso, some nut, big chocolate. Some of the lactose that heavy choco/coffee brews can lean into. Hints of the (cherry) that Speedway shows. Full bodied and smoothly blended. Lowly carbonated with very little alcohol presence until the end. Too drinkable. Finishes solidly blended between bitter and sweet. An excellent offering! Smoother than many similar-ish impy stouts. 18.1

Keg at the bottle shop London. Opaque black velvety smooth pour with a lasting creamy mid tan head that swirls. Aroma is nice smooth coffee, vanilla, dark choc, praline, sweet. Flavour is composed of smooth rich dark choc, vanilla, praline, rich and smooth with a nice bitter dark roast, mellow smooth coffee. Palate is full and smooth and velvety, creamy, moderate carbonation. Really very good indeed.

Keg at the bottle shop, Bermondsey. It pours a dark brown color with a large creamy beige head. Aroma is light roasted malts and big sweet caramel and molasses with light chocolate. Taste is more sweet caramel toffee and chocolate with light roasted coffee notes. Medium bodied with creamy texture and good carbonation. Overall, ok

Tap @ Budapest Only Good Beer // It was good, but didnít remind me much of Speedway. Loads of coffee on the nose and in the flavor. Loads. Might be the coffiest stout ever. Maybe a tad thin, surprisingly. I still liked it, but not as good as regular old Speedway.

1/3rd of a Pint in Brewdog DogHouse Glasgow (£5.45):
Not a beer that disappointed at all, it was strong & dark with coffee & vanilla balanced well. It was silky smooth & went down easy for the strength whilst still having a nice kick to it. Full bodied & filling but very enjoyable; Iím looking forward to trying the original even more now.

On tap at csakajůsŲr. Black colour, with a stiff brown head. Nose of roasted malts, and slight coffee. Full bodied, medium bitterness, with low carbonation. Some alcoholic warmth. As it gets warmer slight cocoa. Very nice stout, but expected much more coffee taste/nose.
