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.

wombat23 (456) - Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, caramel, and chocolate. Full-bodied, creamy texture. Dangerously drinkable; I would have never guessed it is 12% ABV. Fantastic.

Aroma: lots of chocolate malt, some coffee; Appearance: pitch black with tan head that dissipates slowly; good lacing; Taste: rich, roasty, boozy, coffee and vanilla notes; very nice; Palate: very heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: excellent quality stout without resorting to flavor additions or barrel aging; would definitely buy again.

jsporrer (526) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Pours a dark brown to black with a half inch head of thick tan foam. Medium carbonation with plenty of lacing. Pleasant aroma of roasted sweet malts and a hint of coffee. Thick, rich, an creamy texture. Very smooth with bold malts and dark chocolate taste. Full mouth feel with lingering flavors. Finishes with a rich roasted coffee taste that isn’t too overpowering. Well balanced and it hides the alcohol well. Very enjoyable.

rockhammerer (2) - Edmond, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 4, 2016 does not count
Probably the best imperial stout I’ve had. Very nice coffee flavor and full bodied. The high alcohol content complements the taste rather than being overly noticeable.

Zlotta (1583) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’. Pitch black with a beige head. Sweetish, roasty aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, mocca and praline. Sweetish-malty, rather roasty taste of hard roasted coffee, dark chocolate, mocca, praline and some licorice, followed by a long, roasty-bitter finish. Full body, very creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Lovely! Especially the balance of this beer is outstanding.

Amady (10) - Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2016
Pours completely opaque, jet black with a large coffee colored head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, dark malts, dry fruits. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee, more dried fruits and a solid hop bitterness to even it out a bit. Full body, moderate carbonation, some alcohol warmth. Overall this is a damn good beer, if you like coffee and chocolate then this a beer for you.

Georg357 (10) - Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2016
A: Poured from a bottle to a solo cup while tailgating. Black in color and viscous. Great lacing. A: Aroma of coffee, malt, dark fruit and some other sugary sweetness. T: Some chocolate and coffee notes are predominant....toffee, vanilla and roasted malts are there too. Really nice beer. P: A good amount of carbonation with a silky smooth finish. Medium- to full-bodied. O: Excellent beer! Not sure why it took me so long to get at one of these considering how readily available it is.

Smithld1 (165) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
Third at cbc Covent Garden although closer to a half thanks to generous pouring. Very intense. Fantastic stuff. In the vein of old Rasputin and other premium stouts. Great.

Studoffsky (78) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 Jak mówi? wzorcowy, legendarny stout z Zachodniego Wybrze?a. Sprawdzam. Aromat intryguj?cy, ?wie?e ciasto dro?d?owe (panettone?), trawa, kandyzowana zielenina w typie tataraku (ktgo starszy, ten pami?ta). Piana niedu?a, be?owa, g?sta, szybko opada (12% ABV robi swoje). W smaku skoncentrowana s?odowo??, rodzynki, posmak suszono-owocowy w stylu belgijskich quadrupli. Pocz?tkowa goryczka (jakby kawowa) szybko ust?puje miejsca s?odowo?ci. Generalnie piwo jest troch? jednowymiarowe, s?odowo??, wr?cz s?odycz skutecznie przykrywaj? reszt?. Alkohol znakomicie ukryty. Dobre, ?wietnie si? pije ale nie jaki? zupe?ny RIS-wy top.
