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!

Apr. 26, 2014. Bottle from citybeer in SF. Pitch black. Small light brown head. Coffee and sweet chocolate in nose. Hints of cherries in flavour. Touch of sharpness. Quite a lovely imperial stout.

Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and lots of coffee. Flavour is roasty, dark chocolate, more and more black coffee. Surprised at how well-masked the alcohol is, you can sense this is a strong brew but there’s not a lot of alcohol in the flavour. Being a coffee drinker I enjoyed the hell out of this stout. Greatness in beer.

On tap at BtlRev (Raleigh). Pours a very dark brown with a suitably brown head. Coffee and malt dominate the aroma. The coffee this has been conditioned with blasts through the taste - this is a coffee stout, not a "regular" stout...and that's not a bad thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a very surprising beer in my opinion. The aroma is very strong but the body and mouth is almost too smooth. With stouts I expected more of a kick, not so much with this one. Regardless it was a thick beer and there was bitterness throughout. I’m interested in buying another one just to age it and see how much more flavor shows up.

How does $11 for a 750ml sound (pretty good for an Australian!). Mostly worthy of the hype; big picks of chocolate and roats and coffee, absolutely packed with primary flavours. Gets serious on the finish with some darker fruits and bitterness. Good candidate for aging.

Pours oil black with a dark reddish tan head. Aroma is chocolate, bready and roast coffee. Taste is big. Very sweet up front highlighted by chocolate and cocoa. Alcohol warmth followed by a roasted bitter finish that dries out the sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big bottle. Nice presentation. Having while at Evol Grill. Poured a huge frothy head. Lacing on glass. Nice aroma of chocolate and coffee, vanilla. Wow, texture is amazing. Just melts in your mouth yummy. Nice warming alcohol. Dry finish. Taste same as aroma. Bitter finish. Super smooth roasted malt milkshake. Well done. Yum yum yum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
