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!

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 RBSG07. From 22 oz bottle. Pours pitch black with little brown rim. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt and liqourice. Flavour is liqourice and chocolate. Hints of coffee as well. Raisin sweet notes too. Finish is liqourice spiced and sweet.8-5-8-4-16 4.1

Blind tasting at sk8vikings porter / stout tasting, beer no 5. Pours dark black with finer thick creamy brown head. Liqourice and chocolate aroma. Thick mouthfeel. Thick roasted malt, chocolate and liqourice flavour, quite alcohol heavy. Chocolate finish, slight coffee. Very nice, but lacks a bit of refinement. 7-4-8-4-15 3.8

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2004
There is a lot of alcohol in the aroma of this beer, but also coffee and prunes. The color is pitch black and it has a fine disappearing head. The flavor is lovely; coffee bitterness and hops on a sour background. It ends on a very dry hoppy note. Really a good beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 (Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Storm. Pours completely opaque black - almost tar like - with a tiny, light brown head. Vinous, malty lightly raisiny nose. Extremely full-bodied and a chewy malt character with tons and tons of roasted malt and a burned edge. Extreme alcohol. Certainly a huge and complex beer, but frankly I find it a bit too much. It’s quite an effort to chew your way through this. 150306 and 070907

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2008
Bottled. Thick black colour with mediumsized brown head. Aroma is sweet malts, coffee, chocolate, licirice, alcohol and some sour smoked wood. Also a bit vanilla as it warms up. Flavour is very much the same kicking you in the face while drinking. A very nicely balanced big ABV Imperial stout, which still manages to be both powerful yet so smooth and nice.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2002
Extremely black, intransparent, rich creamy brown head. Big aroma of licorice and coffee. Full bodied is a vast understatement. Sweet, roasty and really salty, thick mouthfeel, some molasses. Finishes bitter and salty. Probably would gain from spending some time in the cellar, but who can wait? Thanks Gusler!

Rating #2100. Thanks alot Jason (kramer17801) for this lovely bottle. Pours a black color with a lovely tan head. Roasted malty chocolate aroma with hints of coffee and some weak hints of hops. Roasted malty coffee and chocolate flavor. Long smooth roasted malty finish with hints of chocolate and coffee in the aftertaste.

Rich smoothy creamy stout. Offset by a distinct bitter coffee finish. Initially hard work but it grows and grows as it warms up. Pleasantly bitter finish.

Black color, creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee, creamy, with some cardboard, some firewood. Round and smooth mouthfeel, strong flavor of roasted malt, coffee, moderate sweetness, very good dark chocolate, quite strong liquorice, strong bitterness.
Good, but tonight it seems excessive and inelegant.

Dark brown; poor head. The aroma is original: sweet, malt, roasted malt, caramel, sweet liquorice, fudge, very light phenol, dark chocolate. Very thick, the thickest!, oily, sweet, good malt, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, liquorice and a touch of Fernet Branca. So powerful!
Thanks a lot Philippe (Bov) for sharing this excellent beer.
