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.

OLD NOTES! Pitch black and oily with a very nice dense brown head that lace the glass. Looks like a dessert. Lots of dark chocolate withsome liqeur and vanilla like sweet touch too it. Like a chocolate praline. Simple but luxurious. Taste is also pretty straightforward with lots of cacao, sweet dark chocolate, liqueur praline and fruity notes of cherry and grapefruit. Some alcoholwarmth in the finish. Big round oily body with soft carbonation. Very good stout.

BenL8 (35) - SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2016
Beautiful. Completely black and oily, with a tiny layer of mocha coloured foam. Retains its appearance. Aroma: quite mild; but the aroma that there is, is intense. Loads of coffee, complex and dark malts. Some hoppy aromas, herbal tones. Flavour: perfect imperial stout. Thick and oily mouthfeel, bitter but not too much, beautiful roast character. Loads of coffee (espresso) and some hints of chocolate. Some caramel. Dry finish, a little warming but very balanced and mild for 12% abv. Awesome imperial stout, definitely one of the best if not the best I have had.
