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.

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

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 (25069) - 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 (23682) - 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 (21892) - 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!

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.
