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!

Finally tried this beer poured from a large bottle purchased in San Diego into a small beer-tasting glass. The beer had a thick, syrupy, viscous black body with an average-sized, creamy, dark tan had with tons of cling, great lacing and good retention. The beer had a strong coffee hops aroma with roasty chocolate and caramel malt notes, along with a lighter earthy and grainy hops blend with touches of molasses. Its taste had a rich malty coffee effect with a light sweetness, and a mostly-bitter after-effect with a presence of alcohol and touches of roasted chocolate and caramel. The body had a syrupy texture and was very thick with a filling mouthfeel, low carbonation, and was quite intense and dense with a heavy body. Great beer, shared over Colonia Nights.

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.

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.
