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 bottle poured a black hue w/ huge foamy lasting brown head and sticky lacing. Moderate sweet roasty aromas. Initial flavor is bold sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are coffee, dark toast, brown sugar and a non-descript boozy finish. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel and warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromat: lekkie utlenienie, alkohol - to niebyt dobrze. Na szczęście zaraz po tym czekolada kawa, bardzo przyjemne. Do tego śliwki, wiśnie suszone. Paloność ograniczona. Brawa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta, nawet pod światło. Piana jasno brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości i umiarkowanie trwała. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Smak: spora słodycz, niestety z akcentami miodowymi i wyraźnym alkoholem. Ziarna kakaowca, lekka kawa i paloność. Pod koniec także wyraźne melaoidyny, wręcz pumpernikiel. Goryczka powyżej średniej do wysokiej, wzmacniana przez ciemne słody. Pełnia krągła plus, umiarkowane wysycenie oraz wytrawny, kwaskowy i wyraźnie alkoholowy finisz, rozgrzewający przełyk. Gęsta i oleista konsystencja. Piwo kultowe, które leżało u mnie przynajmniej 1,5 roku. Z tego względu jest nieco utlenione, ale z drugiej strony miałem też nadzieję, że będzie bardziej ułożone. Niestety alkohol jest dość wysoki zarówno w aromacie, jak i smaku. Do tego mega zardzewiały kapsel i szyjka butelki nie wyglądają zachęcająco, zwłaszcza przy tak wysokiej cenie (>50 płn).

Draft, Marty’s Hops & Vines. APPEARANCE - perfectly black. Light head, dissipates pretty quickly. NOSE - coffee, even when it’s cold, and stays promenint as it warms. FLAVOR - thick and delicious. Rich flavors and mouthfeel, which is where this beer excels. Coffee and slightly bitter throughout. It tastes like it was aged when it’s actually not. NOTES - excellent beer.

sample at cbc. pours black, tan head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate. Taste is complex, starting with chocolate, ends in a coffee taste that is just a little too strong for me. (not a coffee drinker)

It’s unbelievably hard not to make motor oil puns to describe Speedway Stout’s appearance, but I’ll do my best. Alesmith’s Imperial Stout pours black and viscous (and bears absolutely no resemblance to a certain automotive product). What’s impressive is that this brew manages to be both effervescent and thick. This beer is heavy yet heady. Rich and full-bodied yet smooth and balanced. Floral coffee aroma is beautiful. Flavor has roasted malt and fresh coffee in equal measure. For a Stout with this much booze, Speedway Stout is even-tempered and extremely drinkable. This classic coffee brew deserves its fame and adoration.
