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!

This is a great beer. Poured from bottle. Dark, black color with a tan head. Aroma is that of coffee and semi alcohol-y. Taste is powerful, first you get the coffee than the hints of dark chocolate begin to settle in. If youre on the fence about trying this beer...TRY IT

This stout is so delicious! Others have indicated it is heavy on coffee taste and aroma. I don’t disagree, but I don’t find it so in your face as that. There is also a nice, natural chocolate flavor. This is one of the few beers that I think out of the bottle is just as good as on tap. One of my go to Imperial Stouts. So good!

Pours pitch black, with a brown head beautiful! The aroma is roasted with lots of coffee. Great mouthfeel, and surprisingly easy to drink for a 12% imp stout!

BazookaJoe (216) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours black with a tan head and a wonderful aroma of coffee. Body is a perfect balance of coffee, sweetness, roast and tart. Goes down smoother than any 12% stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has a nice smell of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, burnt sugar, roasted malts and a little smoky. Pours black with a thick brown head. The taste is strong of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa beans and burnt sugar. The mouthfeel is awesome. Very thick and creamy.

One of my top 3 non bourbon stouts. Huge roasted coffe nose and dark roast coffee dominates the flavor. I pretty much know I will like an imp stout when I pour it and it is pitch black and has a creamy looking toasted brown/mocha color head. If you like coffee imp stouts this is a must try!
