COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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!

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 2006 bottle all to myself. Pours a dark brown with a nutty light brown big foamy head. Dark roasted coffee with chocholate and carmel flavors all came through for me. A silky smooth like texture on the toungue and hops wth cream finish. Great beer. Loved it.

2006 bottle. Split this bottle with a few friends apres-ski on sunday. Poured deep black with a thick brown head. Aroma of coffee, along with sweet malt. Flavor was a beautiful balance between the bitter roasted coffee and the strong malt backbone. Full bodied, with a nice hoppy finish. Delicious and worthy of the reputation!

Excellent via cask at the linkery. Far and away the best stout I have ever had. The only component that was not flawless was the aroma which didnít suck me in. Much better via cask. come to san diego and try it the way it was supposed to be!

750 ml bottle, 2006 probably. Real excited for this one. Pours inky black, slight tan head, but lacing nicely. Huge whiff off coffee on the nose, and intense roasted coffee flavor. Nice smooth palate, with great balancing hoppiness afterward. The only negative thing for me was that it seemed to leave sort of an "oily" finish on my tongue. No beer iíve tried has ever done that before. Maybe itís just me.

Would have rated higher, but it did not live up to the hype my friend gave it. A great Sout, though.

Okay... wow, this one poured a tar like body with a almond bubblie (toes) head. This is where coffee flavor meets alcohol. the alcohol was present throughout. This one had a FNF (face numbing factor) of 85%. Shout out to the Lady Vikes! As the Rolling Stones once said I was "Waiting on a Friend" to drink this one because it was # 50, however somtimes things donít work out, no big deal, you were here in spirit, Ill save another one for you.

Big thanks to rudy for finally giving me an opportunity to try this gem. Pure black body with a thin kahki head. Huge fresh roasted coffe aroma that has hints of rasins and chocolate as well. Big fresh roast coffee flavor with notes of milk chocolate and dark fruits. Rich and delicious.

Pours dark, with scattered dark brown head. Strong alcohol aroma along with many other enticing complexities foreshadowing flavors to follow. Incredibly complex flavor includes vanilla, chocolate, coffee, caramel, with a slightly vinious, dry finish. Hearty, satisfying full body. I shared the bottle with Brett and sipped throughout a 90 minute meal. Good times...

Deep, dark stout with an almost reddish tinge, huge tan head. Aroma is a little winey, with a lot of coffee notes. Very nice roasty flavor, excellently silky mouthfeel and dry finish.
