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.

hohops (463) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle, cellared for just over two years. Appearance is jet black and completely opaque. A 1-2 finger frothy, foamy tan/light brown head which hangs around impressively. Aroma- rich, dense chocolate, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, treacle toffee, leather, some pipe smoke and tobacco, big, roast malt, vanilla hints even though it’s non-BA, maybe due to the age. Only the vaguest hint of alcohol is detectable. Smells luscious. Taste- just incredible. Loads and loads of dark chocolate and a huge coffee/espresso hit at the start. Despite the massive dark chocolatey bitterness, there’s also a sweetness- treacle toffee/vanilla undertones, a hint of boozy dark fruits, rich chocolate cake, and more coffee than you know what to do with. More chocolate emerges as it warms up. The mouthfeel is perfect- not quite as syrupy as the other big imperial stouts. It clings to the mouth in the most satisfying way possible, is oily and slick but has a hint of carbonation to help things along. Long, lingering finish which goes on forever, like drinking a sweet, syrupy espresso. Hardly any alcohol in there, but it gives you a nice warmth. Utterly amazing.

Taste follows nose; lots of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and wood. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with smooth carbonation and a mildly warming finish.
