Bottle pours black with big tan head, nice lacing. Rust on the bottle though. Aroma is rich roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is big rich roast coffee with a light alcohol and full body finish. The coffee is almost too much

Big bottle from trade dated 8/5/13. Huge thanks for a big want of mine. Pours pitch black with a big brown creamy head on top. Aroma of roasted grains, sweet dark fruits, some chocolate and fudge, and nearly no coffee on the nose. Flavor is big fudgy chocolate and some lightly spicy coffee, some vanilla and smooth espresso, roasty and lots of milk chocolate. This is extremely creamy bodied with low medium carbonation. I have not had Vietnamese coffee before, but this blend comes off with more smooth and creamy sweet sugars--almost like a lactose addition, though I know it has been confirmed there is not lactose added here--and vanilla than big bold spicy coffee notes. I assume this is due to the different coffee variant. I donít know if maybe the coffee faded already in the nose and elsewhere, but altogether a beautifully smooth stout that I find different from the other variants I have had. I just wish there were more to the aroma.

750 ml. bottle. It pours black with a nice tight tan head. The aroma is rather sweet and decadent with coffee, dark chocolate and brownies. Fresh baked brownies right out of the oven in fact. The flavor is very rich with dark chocolate, caramel, coffee and a perfectly roasted malty finish. This has a thicker body than I remember from regular Speedway, but itís been a while so I may not be accurate on that. Quite syrupy in fact. The caramel, roast, coffee and fudge brownies make for a really nice treat. Even though the body is thick, Iím not getting any harsh alcohol from this and it goes down surprisingly easy. This reminds me of what I loved about this style.

On draft, cask, nitro and bottle, simply an amazing beer thatís near perfect to the style. I loved the chocolate coffee tastes but the kick of spice was epic.

Speedway is good, Barrel Aged Speedway is better, but Vietnamese Coffee Speedway is my favorite of them all.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of deep roasted barley malt with notes of dry coffee with some hazelnut nectar which rounds off some of the rough edges. Taste is a mix between some deep dry roasted malt notes with dry coffee notes and some hazelnut notes which helps rounds off the flavours. Body is quite full with good carbonation and nice creamy body and no apparent alcohol. I liked this version better than the Koppi version.

Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. Cheers to whoever brought this along. Deep brown pour with a small tan head. Mellow burnt marshmallow. Condensed milk. Dark chocolate. Rich roasted coffee bean. Moderate bitterness. Somewhat hoppy. Decadent cream and milk chocolate. Ashy roasted malts. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, a bit sweet for my tastes. To be honest, I prefer the base beer.

Bottle thanks to dogday. Shared at Jeffís. Pours black with a medium sized creamy head that fades to ring and leaves some oily webbing. Aroma is an awesome mix of fresh lightly roasted coffee beans with rich chocolate cake. Hints of vanilla and caramel too. Taste is up there with the best beers Iíve had. Chocolate cake, fudge, fresh coffee beans, caramel, very light roast, and toffee. I love the sweetness is light to moderate even though itís exploding with rich chocolate. Ultra smooth and creamy finish. Amazing beer.

Courtesy of umich03jm Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy chocolate, roasted coffee, a touch of molasses, and anise. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights around the edges of the glass. It had a one finger light brown head with pretty good retention and leaves some thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, and a touch of molasses. The finish has moderate roasted coffee, faint vanilla, and a hint of alcohol. It?s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this may be the best non-BA Speedway I?ve had.
