Pours Jet black as it should. Aroma is rich of dark roasted malts and dark fruits, not as much coffee as i would want though!
Taste improves over the aroma with rich coffee bringing up the rear of the taste, some slight notes of chocolate. Very thick and creamy mouth feel.
Very nice Imperial stout!

Black body, light brown head. Aroma has sweet coffee, some roasted malt, red port wine. Flavour is smooth roasted caramel, coffee and chocolate. Bit tobacco in aftertaste. Huge oily softness in mouthfeel. Alcohol warmth. Best in this is the balance, not the complexity.

Alesmith Speedway Stout - 750 ml a year or so old - holy cow what a powerful, delicous beer! Certainly loads up the rich tasty malts, creating a body that seems unique. The coffee is top notch and blends well with the roasty malts. Iíve wanted to try this for about ten years, and the ímuchnessí of Alesmithís beer-crafting makes their products extremely rewarding. I could envisage the barrel-aged version being even more mouth-coating, if thatís even possible. Iíd buy this version again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours into a teku showing pitch black with very sparse latte colored foam.
The nose shows a lot of espresso and roasted coffee beans.
The palate is full bodied and evenly carbonated. From the start, there is a big mix of roasted coffee, espresso, cacao and dark chocolate with some hints of cappucino. A lot of dark flavors but still well balanced and a perfect pitch black coffee bitterness on the finish.
