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!

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

@zebf 2014 - Aroma is dry and slightly woody. Smooth, oily texture. Lots of dry, roasted malts and booze with some coffee notes trying to get through too.

What can be said that hasn’t been said already? It’s a complex and strong drink. Very strong. I found the coffee notes to be struggling for prominence against the alcohol, with the alcohol clearly winning in the finish. I understand that this is considered a very well made brew, and that it is very much respected. But I no longer enjoy these kinds of beers. If I want to drink something this strong in the future, I would rather have a nice red wine.

Sampled @ Zeebra 2014. Drank this beer next to the barrel aged version so that might have negatively influenced my rating of this beer. It was mainly less sweet and bourbon-like, generally less rich, than the barrel aged version.
