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.

On draught at Roscoe’s Stout Summit 2/23/13. 2012 vintage. Espresso is first and foremost, with a dark chocolate pairing. Alcohol warming, but a very smooth finish.

Jet black and opaque pour with one half inch tan brown head. Smells of chocolate French roast and some anise. Flavor is exactly what is expected from aroma. Finishes with dark roast lingering on.

I was expecting one of the greatest imperial stouts, but the fact was that my expectations ware too high. Anyway for my point of view is mix of imperial stout and quadruple. Pitch black head. Aroma has loads of coffee, a llittle Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits among figs. Taste is rather sweet and turns roasty. with lots of dried fruits. Body is really soft. Finish is slight dry with coffee and dark. No presence of the ABV at all.

cwill (15) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours jet black with a nominal head, aroma of coffee and booze. Taste is Coffee, chocolate, sweet, malt and booze as it warms. This beer for is amazing. Right up there with Brooklyn chocolate stout as one of my favorites of this style. Mouth feel is creamy and full. Nothing bad to day about this brew. A must try for anyone who likes this style.
