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!

First beer rating. Shared a 75 cl bottle with DroolYeast for my birthday. It was his present to me. Aroma of coffee. Pitch black apperance with a longlasting brown head. Heavy bitterness with light sweet- and sourness. Full body with at thick texture. Soft carbonation on the tongue with a long bitter finish of coffee and alcohol. Ovarall a very good stout that went well with the fillets.

monkeychugg55 (884) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Year and a half old bottle. Dark brown pour, black in the glass, with a medium sized, light brown head. The aroma has a lot of dark chocolate upfront, with some strong coffee, dark stone fruit, burnt notes, and both medium and dark roast. A slight touch of alcohol as it warms. The flavor stars out big and sweet, with a strong chocolate and coffee. The sweetness is toned down a bit by some mellow astringency and bitterness from the coffee. A lot of caramel and coffee in the finish. Huge body balances everything and also hides the alcohol well. Fantastic.

Nische (774) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
Black with no head or lacing. Chocolate, dark coffee, raisins and leather. Chocolate sweetness with a raisiny bitterness. Heavy body with a perfect balance. Long lingering aftertaste that just makes you wanna have one more sip of it.

Bottle. This beer is just way too much, so upfront in all manners. Aroma roasted malts and coffee. Taste roasted malts and coffee, thick as engineoil, long lingering taste that goes on for ever. There´s such a lack of finesse in this beer. As I´m not a fan of the too much of everything approach, this beer leaves med cold, but sure a beer I´ll remember, but I don´t think I´ll try it again.

hank37 (76) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours as dark as your missus gets when you come home from the pub a couple hours later than expected (OK...6 hours). Yields a moderate tan head that dissipates quickly but laces well. Malty Roasty and earthy aromas alongside a sneak peek of the coffee. Covers the tongue with a luxurious lathering of awesome. Big Coffee, toast, burnt sugar/toffee and aniseed tasting notes with a hint of some stone fruit in the background and a generous whack of booziness which isn’t unwelcome. Roasty toasty lingers along with an espresso bitterness.

bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Opaque black color, full tan head, bands and streaks of lace. Taste is clean strong toasted malt that grows adding coffee and dark chocolate in the palate, moving smoothly from there to an already balanced finish. A huge delicious Imperial Stout. Perfect for sipping with friends.

Pours motor oil black with small tan head. Smooth and roasty. Chocolate and coffee with notes of vanilla. Bitter finish. Alcohol is masked well but hits you right away.
