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.

Pours the usual jet black w a very small tan almost reddich looking head. A chocolate and coffee aroma, slight rasberry itseems. The taste of this is amazing, smooth, very filling. A very roasty coffee taste with hints of chocolate. An amazing beer.

jc1762 (149) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 21, 2015
Pours into a teku showing pitch black with very sparse latte colored foam. The nose shows a lot of espresso and roasted coffee beans. The palate is full bodied and evenly carbonated. From the start, there is a big mix of roasted coffee, espresso, cacao and dark chocolate with some hints of cappucino. A lot of dark flavors but still well balanced and a perfect pitch black coffee bitterness on the finish.

Near perfect stout. Black pour with tan lacing head. Aroma is fig, vanilla, mocha and licorice. Flavor is complex with vanilla and hops. Alcohol very evident on the palate. Some nice bitterness. Finish lasts for minutes!

Draught sample at CBC 2015. Pitch black with a small, tanned head. Roasted aroma with dark malts, chocolate, toffee, coconut, a hearty amount of coffee, vanilla and dark, dried fruits. Taste is sweet-roasted. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Perfect. Lasting roasted finish with rich dark malts. World class Stout.

UncleKorm (1025) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bomber bottle poured a black hue w/ huge foamy lasting brown head and sticky lacing. Moderate sweet roasty aromas. Initial flavor is bold sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are coffee, dark toast, brown sugar and a non-descript boozy finish. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel and warm finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aromat: lekkie utlenienie, alkohol - to niebyt dobrze. Na szczęście zaraz po tym czekolada kawa, bardzo przyjemne. Do tego śliwki, wiśnie suszone. Paloność ograniczona. Brawa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta, nawet pod światło. Piana jasno brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości i umiarkowanie trwała. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Smak: spora słodycz, niestety z akcentami miodowymi i wyraźnym alkoholem. Ziarna kakaowca, lekka kawa i paloność. Pod koniec także wyraźne melaoidyny, wręcz pumpernikiel. Goryczka powyżej średniej do wysokiej, wzmacniana przez ciemne słody. Pełnia krągła plus, umiarkowane wysycenie oraz wytrawny, kwaskowy i wyraźnie alkoholowy finisz, rozgrzewający przełyk. Gęsta i oleista konsystencja. Piwo kultowe, które leżało u mnie przynajmniej 1,5 roku. Z tego względu jest nieco utlenione, ale z drugiej strony miałem też nadzieję, że będzie bardziej ułożone. Niestety alkohol jest dość wysoki zarówno w aromacie, jak i smaku. Do tego mega zardzewiały kapsel i szyjka butelki nie wyglądają zachęcająco, zwłaszcza przy tak wysokiej cenie (>50 płn).

Draft, Marty’s Hops & Vines. APPEARANCE - perfectly black. Light head, dissipates pretty quickly. NOSE - coffee, even when it’s cold, and stays promenint as it warms. FLAVOR - thick and delicious. Rich flavors and mouthfeel, which is where this beer excels. Coffee and slightly bitter throughout. It tastes like it was aged when it’s actually not. NOTES - excellent beer.
