Bottle... Poured jet black with a mild forming head. Aroma of roast and coffee. Nice coffee notes (seemed a bit more subtle than other speedway variants that I have had). Bitter-sweet molasses with a nice gingerbread cookie dough thing going on in the finish. Quite smooth.

T: Very chocoaltely with more of the coffee. Lots of smoke. Has notes of wood, though it isn’t barrel aged. M: Lots of alcoho. Thick, creamy, and oily. O: An interesting concoction with some clashing flavors. A bit astringent, as well. Not my favorite.

750 ml. bottle. Thanks Mike! Pours black with a decent reddish brown head. Aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla, lactose, and a touch of alcohol. Deserves it’s rating!

douglas88 (5575) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a black oil can viscous mixture out with a creamy brown head. A big nose of milky coffee, some roast and chocolate. The flavor is dead on awesomeness: super sweet lactose and roasted coffee, vanilla, light fruit pushing through, some toffee and again more sweet full coffee. Great surprisingly mellow beer. Awesome. The palate alone is great, soft and full.

750mL bottle, sent from TigerBrew (thanks a lot, Cesar), pours black with a small brown head. Nose brings out loads of lactose sugar above anything, a little coffee, and a little roast. Flavour brings out loads of lactose sugar - this is a milk stout all out - with slight coffee, and a touch of roast. This is Speedway turned milk stout. Another amazing version of the classic Speedway.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle for rating #5600:   Black, moderate foamy beige head, nice lacing.   Sweetened coffee up front, roasted malts, and a little spice.   Not sure what it is, but its nice.   Faint apple skin and lactose as well.   Roasty start, alcohol, soft coffee notes, but a little astringent.   Seems a bit young.   Smooth start, robust on the tongue.   Very warming.   Assertive coffee finish, roasty, with some heat.   Faint aspects of dark or bakers chocolate.   Very good beer, but seems a bit young and brash.   Needs a bit of smoothing out, but still very enjoyable.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Pours black with a small ring of bubbles. Aromas of tobacco, licorice, dark fruits, chocolate covered espresso beans and vanilla. Velvety smooth mouth feel with a somewhat dry finish. A wonderful beer!

_angst_ (2377) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Bottle received in trade. Thank you nicks6217. Pours pitch black with a creamy goldenish greenish brown head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is tiny sweet with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, raw coffee berries, banana bread, alcohol, high quality dark chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, coffee hard candy and hay. Taste is sweet, bitter, very tiny sour and malty with heavily roasted malts, dark roast coffee, banana bread, bitter chocolate, hay, soil, alcohol, bitter chocolate truffles and hints if caramel and charred wood. Mouthfeel is round, creamy, silky, soft and full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, charred wood, chocolate milkshake, coffee hard candy, soil and hints of alcohol. A close to perfect beer. Big, fat, rich and very very complex. The coffee is perfectly balanced and the malts adds a very interesting bitter chocolate milkshake feel to the brew... I’m in awe!
