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!

Aroma is booze, coffee, booze and more booze. (My bottle was 8months old, maybe there might be some hop hints that already left the building). A very thick imperial stout. A lovely coffee taste and nice roastness. Ace stout

Wow, had read about this many times, delighted when brewdog online got hold of some. The aroma is coffee , chocolate, malt, but also a hint of hops. This was always going to have a mouthfeel of thick cream, the abv has to give sweetness, but the coffee gives a clean finish at the end. Trying to be restrained with my sipping, but it is gorgeous. And a big bottle. World class!

Extremely pitch black color, no light coming through it whatsoever. Fluffy brown head with medium retention. Aroma is powerful, full of coffee beans and bitterweet chocolate, of course, tones of roasted malts and, on the background, molasses, caramel and dark fruits. Incredible mouthfeel, full-creamy-viscous-bodied. Mind blowing! Extreme coffee bean flavour, dark chocolate, cocoa, toffee, dark malts... anything you can imagine in an Imperial Stout but powered to the limit. Extremely balanced, alcohol is so well hidden. Aftertaste is bitterweet and ridiculosly persistent. Amazing journey!

The perfect stout, smooth and chocolaty as it should be. Extremely drinkable compared to the strength

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Beautiful pour with nice thick tan/brown head. Mostly coffee aroma. Taste of a nearly perfect imperial stout heavy on the coffee. So delicious, and warmth of alcohol going down. Not sure I need to drink this huge bottle in one sitting, but what the heck. Why not?

Cervesa molt ben estructurada en tots els sentits, tant en aroma com en gust, predomina el cafè, però les maltes també li aporten dolçor. Cerveza muy bien estructurada en todos los sentidos, tanto en aroma como en sabor, predomina el café, pero las maltas también le aportan dulzor.

bottle from ammersin. bottled on 02/04/2014. (very) black color, light coffee colored head. smells of milk coffee, liqueur, light coconut, tiramisu, rum. full body, starts sweet, creamy texture, tastes of (milk) coffee / cacao, alcohol very (too) apparent, bitter malty aftertaste. should be interesting to compare this to a bottle that has aged a bit.
