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 beer definitely has a great coffee taste to it. The higher alcohol content is surprisingly hidden. Has a very nice toasty brown colored head that seems to stay all the way through the drink. Not disappointed one bit! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is amazing, smells like chocolate milk with coffee, really sweet and the taste is wonderful, loads of chocolate and caramel upfront followed by some coffee notes and then some alcohol buzz

Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is viscous black with a thin coffe colored head. Aroma and flavor is of ground coffee, cocoa power, booze, dark chocolate, and dark molasses. Finish is sweet and boozy with a bitter coffee aftertaste.

Bottle. Great aroma, roasted coffee flavor with a bit of caramel. Big smooth flavor and mouthfeel, a extremely pleasant beer. Not as bitter as a mikkellers, but it great for a chilly evening.

Bottle at The Winston with Ben and Pat. A beautiful looking beer, pitch black with a brown head. The aroma is all chocolate and coffee initially, but also some malt and a little alcohol, really nice. The flavour is coffee, roasted malts, sweet chocolate. There is a sugary impression. Really soft and balanced, but with a thick feel as well. Coffee long into the aftertaste. Such a nice beer.

750 ml bottle from HyVee Springfield, IL. Strong coffee smell with some chocolate. Beautiful black color with a lovely lingering mocha head. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, slight sweet malt, and cherry cordial. Complex and delicious. Fluffy on the palate with some creamy texture followed by the nice rounded hops. An amazing imperial stout!

Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop. Great aroma, pours beautiful with a small tan head. The taste is rich coffee, chocolate, roasted. Perfect! Have had it before in Singapore, but that bottle tasted like it have had a rough life. This one tasted perfect!

Yup, pretty much jet black, perhaps the slighted tinge of brown in the light. Not a lot of carbonation, very thick. The aroma is coffee, espresso, dark roast, French press, pretty much everything strong coffee. The taste is more assertive coffee, roasted and burnt malts. This is a serious imperial stout, impeccably crafted, but I wish the coffee was dialed back just a bit to allow more complexity to surface. Awesome stuff though.
