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.

Jet black with a tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Silky smooth with a warm alcohol finish. Taste of coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts, caramel. This is so velvety and complex I cannot possibly give it’s proper due. This is THE impy stout that all others should bow down to.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with nice lasting brown head. Good lacing. Heavy Malty aroma, roasted, coffee, caramel, chocolate and liquorice. The flavours starts heavy sweet but turns heavy bitter. Longlasting bitterness and taste of coffee and liquorice with peppery notes. The body is full and the texture is creamy. Soft carbonation. Good balance. A super beer - so good.

Very good. Chocolate and sweet after a year in the basement. I didn’t taste much coffee. Good but not better than many other offerings.

Probably the best non-barrel aged stout currently made. In an age of barrel aged stouts this one still hangs in there with the best of them.

Black. Very full body, dense flavor, smooth, not as hot as one should expect, avg length. Bittersweet, refreshing but mild acidity. Strong and complex flavors, prunes, cherries. Quite delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dahlstrom (128) - gasvetksgatan 3, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2016
750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black coloured with a large mocha head. Aroma of roasted barley, caramel, dried fruits, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and alcohol. Taste reflects the aroma, but less sweetness than I thought. Medium bodied. Medium bitterness. And low to medium carbonation. "Personally I prefer a bit more thickness and oily texture from a stout of this strength. Other than that its very tasteful, perfectly balanced, with high drinkability."
