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.

Pours black brown with average brown creamy head. Aroma is heavy dark chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts. Hint of smoke and toffee in mouth. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, long lingering aftertaste. Medium to full body, creamy palate, soft carbonation. Super balanced, smooth and slick chocolate impy, one of the best I’ve had.

Batavi (326) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2016
Fles gekocht via firmabier.nl, gedeeld en uitgeschonken in 33 cl. Struise glazen. Zwart bier, ondoorzichtig, enigszins olieachtig met een volle lichtbruine schuimkraag. De koffie is het meest dominant in het aroma, gevolgd door tonen van chocolade, geroosterde mout, vanille en donker fruit als pruimen en rozijnen. Het smaakpallet is vrij zoet voor een Imperial Stout, veel koffie, gebalanceerd met zoetere chocolade tonen, en een lichte bitterheid van geroosterde mout en hop. De carbonatie is zacht, en de afdronk is lang en zacht bitter, alcoholisch verwarmend. Een prachtige complexe Stout, maar nog niet het maximale niveau, ik heb nog betere op, ook uit de USA, zoals de Serpent’s Stout van Lost Abbey. Dit bier ga ik zeker nogmaals kopen voor een verdere beoordeling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What is left to say? This authentic Imperial Stout legend has all that is required to break the record... the commercial deScription says it all. I must add that the extremelly smooth on texture (low carbonation) is a huge point in favour. Overall, a great beer.

Poured from a Big bottle into a cold pint glass, extremely dark brown with a chocolate head that fades quickly leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, toffee, caramel and licorice. The body is full and the texture is creamy. Soft carbonation, good balance, roasted finish with a noticeable ABV warmth. A superb stout will highly recommend to my friends..
