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.

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smells like booze, chocolate, and soy sauce. Very low carbonation. Mouthfeel is semi-creamy and semi-foamy. Taste is alcohol, coffee with cream, some caramel, and dark chocolate. In that order. Aftertaste is long length. Starts off with alcohol taste and warmth. The alcohol taste goes away before the warmth does. After about ten seconds, the taste transitions from alcohol to coffee and dark chocolate.

Strong....very very strong. It's 12%. It's chocolatey and continues on into a soft, dark caramel finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a year and a half old bottle. Looks great in a glass. Nice tanned head. Smell - not that strong smelling. I am picking up a little bit of alcohol, some dark fruit, subtle coffee, not much to be honest. Taste - it’s a huge stout. The coffee has faded a bit, I’m actually a bit dissapointed in this. The alcohol does come through a lot. Not the smoothest to drink, and honestly not one of my favourite stouts.

Bottle. Pours black with a beige head. Aromas of roasted malts and rich chocolate, some alcohol. Tastes like it smells. Lightly bitter. Medium+ bodied; a touch creamy; bitter finish.

Pretty good. Tastes good and chocolatey. Slightly aromatic. About the same class as KBS I’d say

Jet black pour with an espresso colored, single finger head. Aroma is sweet and chocolate like. Aroma is unfortunately pretty faint. Creamy mouth. Lots of chocolate. Slight alcohol burn. Lots of bitter coffee on the finish. For 12% this is highly drinkable. Pretty unassuming, but this is a very tasty stout. Lace present.
