Speedway Stout’s ominous, pitch-black appearance has become a hallmark of this modern-day classic. Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the flavor, supported by notes of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. A healthy dose of locally-roasted coffee from Ryan Bros. Coffee, Inc. added to each batch brings out the beer’s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stout’s fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel make it very smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. This beer ages very well and will continue to mature for many years to come.

Percy0103 (317) - MEXICO - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle, 750ml. A pitch black beer with a medium size brown head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, black coffee, mint chocolate, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is bitter with a strong roasted coffee character. Double aftertaste of dark chocolate, nuts and black coffee. Robust bodied with carbonation and astringency and a slightly milky finish. A one of a kind Stout

Bottle, 75cl. Opaque dark brown with a frotrhy brown head and intricate lacing. Deep, complex aromas of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dried fruits, nuts, toffee. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Rich and creamy, with unbelievable malt character and a heavy coffee and alcohol bitter finish. Utterly magnificent.

Taste: Roasted malt, coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla, sweet caramel, smoke, licorice and tobacco.
Body: Medium to full body. Light carbonated. Complex, smooth texture. Dry ending.

This is beatiful!

jkakawa (1) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2015 does not count
Obfita beżowa piana ujawnia się zaraz po nalaniu, utrzymuje się dość długo pozostawiając piękny lacing. W zapachu ujawniają się nuty kawowo-czekoladowe z lekkim aromatem rodzynek, alkohol wspaniale ukryty prawie niewyczuwalny. Piwo jest oleiste w smaku gładkie pozostawia przyjemne słodkie odczucie przechodzące w silny posmak kawy/paloności. Bardzo dobry RIS godny polecenia Butelka 0,75

radzik5555 (635) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Butelka 0.75L.
Wygląd: Carne z beżową, obfitą pianą. Opada w średnim tempie ale pięknie znaczy szkło.
Aromat: Czekolada gorzka, melasa, kawa czarna, po zamieszaniu wychodzą estry owocowe, głównie wiśnia, lekka śliwka.
Odczucie: Pełne, wysycenie średnie-, faktura oleista.
Smak: Bardzo słodkie w pierwszym wrażeniu, po czym pojawia się dużo kawy i paloności, kończy się bardziej wytrawnie, lekko pikantnie i alkoholowo.
Całość: Bardzo dobry RIS ale nie sprostał oczekiwaniom. Piłem kilka tańszych i lepszych RISów.

Bottle from Saveur Bičre. Big creamy head with black body. Smells of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, nuts, tar. Tastes chocolate, coffee, raisins. Very intense, sweet and bitter. Not amazingly complex but incredibly full and balanced in its taste. A great beer.
