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!

Bottle 75cl kindly given by Julien thanks and shared with Dominique and Calisky ! A dark beer with good copper creamy head. Nose is intense on dark chocolate, coffee and peated notes. Aroma is rich on dark chocolate, very creamy and smooth, less sweet as the chocolate notes can be properly tasted, extremely drinkable, coffee notes, licorice notes at the finish. On aftertaste it gives a long bitter dark chocolate notes, technically an excellent brew.

Bottle that had been aging for around six years. Moderate malt aroma worth a strong alcohol wood aroma. Black color with a small brown head. Light sweet beginning with a moderate bitter malt finish. Not much coffee bean taste left but it does meld nicely with the strong malts. Palette is thick and rim of glass gets very sticky.

AR: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, black coffee, roasted malts,toffee and caramel. TA: bitter dark chocolate, sweet milk chocolate, coffee, slightly raisiny, molasses and caramel.

Bottle. Pours clear black with a small brown head. Aroma is medium sweet roasted malt, chocolate, coffee with alcohol notes present. Taste is wonderful, dominated by chocolate, coffee and a warming finish from the alcohol.Thick and rich in the mouth. This is a big beer that deserves the hype around it.

scotchzombie (326) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours dark dark brown (OK, black) with a massive foamy mocha head. Nice lacing. A really fantastic head. Bountiful aroma of coffee, chocolate malt, brown sugar. Taste is a sharp and spicy malt coffee rolling over a warming bed of alcohol. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Some caramel and a touch of roast. Smooth and velvety. Outstanding.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a dark black color with some brown head. Mild well balanced coffee flavor. Nothing too bitter. Balanced without the sweetness. Fantastic.

Awesome beer. Bottle poured to snifter. Pour was jet black, thick khaki head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with hints of vanilla. Taste was the same, but I also got cinnamon notes as well. Very filling but I couldn’tstop myself from drinking the entire bottle. One of the better stouts I’ve tried.
