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.

Bottle from Saveur Bière. 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.

jrussell9109 (14) - Fairbury, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Fresh bottle month old. Poured a nice dark color with a very nice brown head. Smells of coffee cocoa and a little booze. Thick on the mouthfeel. Taste of deep complex malts, little bit of coffee and cocoa flavors. Boozy on the finish.

750 ml bottle poured into tulip glasses at home. Rich brown persistent head and nice lacing. Great aroma of dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans. Heavy mouthfeel, rich roasted character on the palette.

Noticeably high octane abv meshes in well with a complex inky black stout. Very enjoyable cocoa flavor adds to a nice silky mouthfeel. Gotta be hungry for this one.

2/19/2009 7:27:39 AM Bottle in Northfield, MA. Very black with the faintest head. Nose of malts and coffee. Fuel-powered taste of strong coffee and darkest chocolates. Very nice. A smooth mouthfeel and very creamy and crisp. Warming and delicious.

Happy to have found this bottle on a recent trip. Poors like a bottle of ink with a beautiful caramel colored head. Initial taste of chocolate and roasted malts. Perfect stout texture. Feels great on the palate, like a good stout should.

RafeAU (558) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Bottle shared in LA, again on tap. Rich black pour, tan head. Huge chocolate flavour, roastiness, just right mild sweetness up front but finishes clean and not cloying. Warming alcohol finish. Alcohol richness from its 12% - you know drinking this that it isn’t an 8-9% RIS. On tap seems not quite as good as in the bottle. Superb imperial stout.

Nieprzejrzyście czarny, z ładną beżową pianą. Aromat to intensywna kawa i mocna paloność, nuty deserowej czekolady i lekki powiew alkoholu w tle. W smaku bardzo pełne, ponownie popiół i kawa, alkohol jest bardziej nachalny niż w aromacie.

DraftDodger (631) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2015
Copenhagen 14/10-2015. 50 cl from draft at Søernes Ølbar. Pours dark brown - almost black with small light beige head. Aroma is of chocolate and coffee. Soft carbonation and creamy palate. Taste is very well balanced between sweetness which is not too sugary and rich coffee bitterness. You can sense the quite prominent intensity from the alcohol. A very nice imperial stout you are forced to enjoy at a thoughtful pace.

Where: A gift enjoyed at a tasting event, thanks Maxbier and dlovell2. Appearance: Pours black with a nice creamy head, good coloring. Aroma: Heavy on the coffee and boozy notes, some chocolate and fruits. Taste: Dark malt, cocoas and caramel and creamy with decent hops. Palate: Heavy and smooth and creamy. Awesome. Overall: Much thanks to dlovell2 again, might not drink many better beers than this!
