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!

Black licorice, blackcurrant and coffee. Alcohol is dominant but serves as basis to flavors. Excellent IS. Café, chocolat noir, réglisse noire et alcool sont les dominantes du premier nez. Se développent ensuite des accents de figues, de fruits noirs (mures) avec un léger soupçon de caramel. Le visuel est noir, opaque, mousse brune, crémeuse, avec un mélange de grosses bulles. Son maintient est cependant court. Quelques traces demeurent sur le verre. Son attaque est réchauffante avec son alcool prononcé. Le café domine tout au long de son processus gustatif, laissant une profonde amertume de torréfaction. On sent bien les petits fruits et la réglisse noire se développer, mais le café reste dominant. En bouche, sa texture est crémeuse et elle présente un bon équilibre entre alcool fruits et café. Excellente impérial stout. Bonne amertume de torréfaction.

Body is full, creamy and slightly crisp. Taste is of nutty, toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and bitter. Great Imperial Stout.

freretoc (820) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la brasserie, couleur noire, peu de mousse, effervescence quasi inexistante, une bière que je voulais boire depuis très longtemps, une attaque sur le café assez forte et sur le chocolat puis continuité énorme sur le moca et le cappucinno, fin de bouche sur l’alcool vraiment trop forte le fin de bouche. Pas assez équilibré à mon goût.

Renobob (830) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Incroyable stout d'un noire profond, mousse moka. Arômes de café au nez puis explosion au palais. Grosse corpulence, longueur en bouche sans fin. Superbe complexité, équilibre parfait. Huge !

Poured from a bottle. Part of a blind taste test. Dark caramel color. Rich mocha taste, kind of thick.

poured from a bottle. Medium brown color, small off white head. Not much of an aroma. Medium body with a thick bourbon malt flavor and a medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SaintMatty (5518) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2014
750ml Bottle - Black with a tan head. Cocoa, coffee, roasted malt and vanilla in the aroma. Roasted and fairly smooth taste with coffee, vanilla, cocoa and liquorice. Undoubtedly a great beer, but I was expecting a bit more from this.
