Speedway Stout is a HUGE Imperial Stout, with pounds and pounds of coffee added during conditioning for a little extra kick! This is a limited-edition Formula and it'll definitely get you racing! It is available in 750 ml. champagne bottles. Appearance: Jet Black, with a toast-brown head. Flavor: Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramelly flavors. Finishes with a nice fullness but dry enough not to be cloying. Aroma: COFFEE! And some other stuff. And coffee. Mouthfeel (body/texture): Velvety smooth texture. Clean and crisp, full-bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel a bit. Still, you won't fool your taste buds -- this beer is HUGE!

Bottled shared with piscator34 on a bright and cold saturday morning. Pours out dark espresso with a nose of espresso and dark chocolate. Thick body on this but not cloying in the slightest. Someow seems dry and viscous at the same time. Little ash in the taste, but also nicely balanced with the chocolate malts. Drinkability is very high given the potency of this brew. Excellent stuff.

Dense and lasting espresso head, opague black body. Rich aroma of roasted dark malts, chocolate, sweet licorice, plums, prunes, raisins and mild coffee. Taste is not unlike the aroma, with an impressive complexity; Light sweet dark malts, roast, licorice, coffee, English fruitcake, refined bittering hops. Notes of tar, oak and ash. Fat body, but still very easy drinking. Long and dry hoppy and coffeish end. What at treat! [Sampled (twice) @ RBNAG’07]

2006 Bottle (Thanks weeheavysd!) Pours a syrupy thick deep, dark black with a 2+ finger light brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malts & barley, espresso, bitter chocolate and some dark fruits. This brew coats your tongue and throat and makes for a nice warm feeling in the belly. Flavor of roasted malts and barley, dark roasted coffee, a little chocolate, some vanilla notes. Full bodies is an understatement. This is a meal in a bottle. My big 4 0 0!!!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 750ml bottle @ RBNAG’07. Black body with a fine brown head. Rich, complex aroma of leather, oak, vanilla, liquorices and coffee. Flavor is sweet roasted malt, oak, vanilla and well hidden warming alcohol. Very rich and delicious indeed.

Bottle. Completely opaque black beer with a light brown head that lingers. Sweet malty aroma, hint of hops. Taste of toasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Thick and lingering on the palate. The high alcohol percent is barely noticeable in the taste. Amazing and rich stout.

Bottled sample via oakbluff (huge thanks for this one, buddy!). Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas of whisky, chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and a touch of dark fruit. Dry, yet still quite heavy and oily in the mouth. Flavors of more coffee and chocolate, caramel, a bit of char, and a hint of hops. Very classy stuff. Lives up to the hype!

MY 500th!!!!!!! Bottle: From a trade with pantanap (A big Thanks!) Aroma coffee, Chocolate cake, big on malts, roasty, a light hop backing and raisins. Appearance is pitch black with a medium sized brown head tht diminishes into a thin tan film. Taste starts out with and upfront malt and chocolate note. Somewhat grainy at first. Then transforms into something totally different. (I love it when beers do this) Many phases to the taste and palate of this brew including a slight alcohol twinge in the middle, but smooths out with a roasted malt and caramel taste. Nicely complex. Overall, This is a hell of a brew I have chose for my 500th. I’ll just listen to my song now.
