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.

Oozes out of the bottle with an oily blackness impenetrable to light. Finely beaded brown head. Dark roast coffee wafts from the glass. Thick and rich on the palate with smooth but obvious alcohol. There’s quite a bit of fruity malt before the long dry finish. Plums in the middle, prunes in the end. Overall, awesome.

Tap@taphouse, Copenhagen - (Can’t believe this is my first time having the base brew having had many other variants) anyway - pours black as night with a thin tan head. Aroma can taste is roasted malty, with big bold chocolate and coffee notes, caramel, liquorice, brown sugar, some dark dried fruity notes. some nice burnt malty notes, smooth mouthfeel, lovely stuff.

kran w jabeerwocky. czarny, oleisty, z niewielka piana. W aromacie bogato, czekoladowo, kawowo, palenie, alkoholowo, ciemne owoce (bardziej wisnie niz sliwki), nieco karmelu, troche pumpernikla... ladnie to wszystko komponuje sie. w ustach analogicznie, alkohol ewidentny, ale w ten pozytywny sposob. w slodka strone w smaku, odczuwalna choc niewysoka goryczka. Zaskakujaco lekki, latwo pijalny - byc moze to zasluga nieduzej ilosci ciala, choc jak dla mnie wolalbym go wiecej. klasa piwo.

Nera, densa, oleosa. Note di caffè, cioccolato dolce, cacao, malto abbrustolito; gusto rotondo e perfettamente equilibrato, di facile beva. Me l’aspettavo più intensa ma è molto ben bilanciata.

Percy0103 (317) - MEXICO - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle, 750ml. A pitch black beer with a medium size brown head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, black coffee, mint chocolate, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste is bitter with a strong roasted coffee character. Double aftertaste of dark chocolate, nuts and black coffee. Robust bodied with carbonation and astringency and a slightly milky finish. A one of a kind Stout

Sdaniel90 (589) - Mexico City, MEXICO - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. Opaque dark brown with a frotrhy brown head and intricate lacing. Deep, complex aromas of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dried fruits, nuts, toffee. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Rich and creamy, with unbelievable malt character and a heavy coffee and alcohol bitter finish. Utterly magnificent.
