On tap at Alesmith during 2012 SDBW. Pours nearly black with tan head. Aroma is coffee, lots of coffee. I really can’t tell the difference between this one and the regular speedway. They are both really good.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Bottle shared with and courtesy of Kermis. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is big roasted malt, coffee, creamy caramel. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich, smooth alcoholic spice liqorice palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation and a luxurious oily mouthfeel. A king of beers.

Tap at RateBeer Gallery III. Aroma is oddly vanilla coffee. Or odd coffee. Med body or better. It’s very delicious coffee over a dark treacly background - smooth dark malt support there. Delicious. Very.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
On tap at Ratebeer Gallery 3. Pours jet black with an attractive tan head and a coffee and treacle aroma. There is a delicious dark molasses and vanilla flavor with a huge coffee presence and a slightly bitter finish. This is a great version of one of my favorite stouts.

deyholla (5965) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a rich dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma is full of bitter coffee with dark grains, strong roasted malts and a bit of bitter chocolate. Flavor combines roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate with a dark grain backbone and a hint of sweetness.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Sampled on tap at Alesmith on 3/20/2014. This Imperial Stout pours a deep black color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and sweet. A medium to full bodied Imperial Stout. The malts are roasty, coffee, chocolate and dark fruit. The hops are herbal and earthy. Mild carbonation. Nice sweet coffee flavors. Nice balance between the coffee, malts and hops. Hides the alcohol VERY well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

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
