COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

Bomber sampled at home one evening (review from memory) - lots of coffee in this stout, as was expected, but other than that not many surprises. A well made stout, rich flavours of roasted malts, dark chocolate and some dark cherries.

Slautar (347) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Rewelacyjny aromat kawowo – czekoladowego likieru z dodatkiem czegoś mocniejszego. W smaku kawa i goryczka dominują nad czekoladą (kawa bardziej, goryczka trochę dyskretniej) i spychają ją na nieco dalszy plan. Piwo jest gęste i mocne. Może nie jest doskonałe ale na pewno jest bardzo, bardzo dobre.

Big, boozy, delicious Imperial Stout. The booze doesn’t let all of the coffee flavor come through, but it’s still delicious.

bubbleflubber (2114) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Wow! Pours into the glass a virtual black, with the deepest of mahogany-ruby fringes. The dark brown head is huge and soapy, reducing to chunky lace. The nose is of deep chocolates, lightly roasted coffee, dark fruity esters... just yummy! Flavors are sweet and bitter chocolates, roasted coffee beans, caramel, sweet dark stone fruits, lactose sugars, and finishes with luscious milk chocolate, roasted coffee and light bitters to accent. A full body, easy quaff and substantial complexity makes this a top-tier Impy Stout from AleSmith! Gorgeous!

SeniorZozo (606) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2016
From tap. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of heavy roasted malts, lots of licorice, light plums and raisins, coffee, light chocolate, slight hint of alcohol. Taste is heavy chocolate, super smooth, vanilla, toffee and caramel, hints of coffee, low carbonation.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (61) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Full size bottle. Have had it for 2 years. WOW. Very dark in the glass. Plenty of carbonation lends to a rich foamy head. Like the commercial deScription says...chocolate, roast malts, caramel and coffee. Plenty of intense aromas. Bitterness of the chocolate / coffee surprisingly tolerable. Not sure how this could be better.
