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!

Black pour, khaki head, deep rich aroma of roasted coffee and caramel. Thick and creamy, this brew flows over my tongue like a massive booze train, coming around the curves with a wallop of warm like nobodies business! There is no crisp to this, but a hot, comforting hug filled with coffee and nutty goodness. Velvety and black made me think to braise my dinner for this evening with it. Pork chops are to die for and the imperial stout to go with it made for the best meal of the month! I’m most definitely a fan!

Bottle shared in London - thanks to Dave! Pours black-brown with a frothy tan head. Well roasted malts in the nose, baking cocoa, burnt wood, soft cocoa. Medium to big sweet flavor with well rounded dark malt character, some torched earth bitterness, bittersweet cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with bittersweet chocolate, burnt wood, coffee grounds. Solid, rich, well rounded.

This dark black beer has a creamy head. Strong espresso aromas with a boozy punch. It has a bold coffee flavor but is easier drinking than you would expect. We took small glasses and layered crumbled chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream and poured this beer over the top. Amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

monk191 (927) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
A nice stout. Pours a very thick black sub a brown head. Huge coffee smell, with some cocoa. Taste is more coffee then most, with a bit of vanilla. Paired with a ice cream cookie beer Sunday, cuts out a bit of the coffee. Had in the bottle.

bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Aroma is roasty and not much else. Pour is pitch black with a small light brown head. Taste is a light coffee with some chocolate. Never would have guessed there was coffee if it wasn’t on the label.

Calisky (701) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 22, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 kindly shared by Jaghana! Couleur noire, légère mousse brune. Fort nez de café et chocolat, alcool et vieille prune. Gout de café doux amer, avec note houblonée, cholocolatée, réglisse, alcool et malt grillée, complexe mais légère en bouche, et super "buvable". Super!

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.
