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.

Bottle shared with Brian at Castle Libation. Pours a jet black with a creamy mocha head that lasted. Aroma is amazing dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee, graham cracker, slight vanilla. Improved as it warmed. The taste was just as wonderful with the chocolate and cocoa nibs up front, creamy vanilla and some graham cracker on the mid section, and a slight bitter but flavorful coffee finish. Well balanced, creamy and silk mouth. Thick body. So fucking good! Need another bottle ASAP!

(bottle - 750 ml - 2013 vintage) Dark black with a thin tan head. Coffee and chocolate, mainly chocolate, in the aroma. Like a nice cold mocha with alcohol in it. Flavor is a silky combination of chocolate with a hint of coffee balancing it out underneath. Drinks ever so smooth. Amazing.

dmac (4438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle shared during the Central Jersy BA tasting. Poured a dark black body with a smaller super dense tan head. Aroma of syrupy chocolate, coffee, nut shell, dry grain husks, soy and marshmallows. Flavor is really great, loads of chocolate, light booze, burnt toast and a touch of coffee. Smooth silky body with softer carbonation. Great beer.

Bottle with Adam and Klink. Pours blackish opaque, nice thin coffee white head. Nose of milk chocolate, some interesting coffee notes and rich malts. Just an epicly balanced chocolate and coffee stout that you would swear has milk chocolate in there. Awesome long finish and really no ABV apparent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Macegan75 (733) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2015
From notes, Bottle at Damico’s. Pours viscous black with slight tan foam that fades. Nose is cappacino and black malt. First sip is similar with lovely roasted flavors and nutty (thinking of frangelica with less hazel nut quality) Finish is so smooth and creamy. Awesome stuff

Bottle at Frank’s January 2015 tasting; huge thanks to Callmemickey for this treat - thanks Ryan. Pours a deep brownish black body with thin brown lacing. Notes of rich coffee bean, creme brulee, hazelnut, dark chocolate, rich brownie and absolutely no alcohol cloying character or heat. Pretty incredible.

Odeed (1796) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 2, 2015
I wouldn’t say there is a huge difference between this and the original but it’s just as good for sure. Possibly the coffee is a bit more upfront,but that’s about it.

Dr_Fellini (702) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2015
2013. Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a creamy medium brown head. Aroma is delicious roasted malts, light chocolate, not much coffee, but could be faded over time. Flavor has a big burnt roasted malts, light burnt bitterness, cocoa, touch of coffee in the back. Medium to heavy body with a delicious lingering roasted malts and burnt chocolate. Probably would have been even better fresh, but still quite delicious!
