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: JUL 26, 2003 Hahaha! Some of my ratebeer.com friends worried that I would ruin theirs favorite beer rating. I rated honestly and… Not bad, not bad guys! Coffee-fruity with bubble gum. Look of Turkish black coffee (classic look for imperials). Man this one was HUGE. Wow ... thanks guys for sharing with me.

On tap at the tipsy cow in madison. Dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. This beer is big and roasted. Flavor full of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and more roast. Smooth and slightly warming. Finished with a roasted dryness and a long lingering roasted coffee flavor that never falls into cold weak coffee territory. I think the alcohol and bakers chocolate flavors keep from just being the all to common stout with weak coffee aftertaste beer. I really enjoyed this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Efficace. Goût prononcé de torréfaction et café. Le houblon cherche à sortir en finale. À boire au complet en 2h pour apprécier les saveurs.

Amazing beer. Slightly smokey and chocolate taste that leaves a pleasantly bitter aftertaste. Aroma of roasted coffee.

Bottle share at Mermaid Juice! Big beautiful black bomber. Great beer, but it didn’t quite reach the Hunahpu they cracked afterwards.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle - 750ml. Pour an opaque black body with very low carbonation and a thick, lasting brown foamy/creamy head. Wonderful, rich, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, vanilla, and coffeeish hints. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. Its fantastic, perfectly balanced taste carries roasted coffee, cocoa, licorice, and oaky notes. Texture is soft. Ends with a long, robust, warming bitter/roasty finish. First class!

Flaska@Akkurat. Kolsvart vätska med dofter av choklad, tobak och kaffebönor. Brödig och lite sötsyrlig röda bär-smak. Fyllig munkänsla med hög eldighet.

dandeman (551) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Black licorice, blackcurrant and coffee. Alcohol is dominant but serves as basis to flavors. Excellent IS. Café, chocolat noir, réglisse noire et alcool sont les dominantes du premier nez. Se développent ensuite des accents de figues, de fruits noirs (mures) avec un léger soupçon de caramel. Le visuel est noir, opaque, mousse brune, crémeuse, avec un mélange de grosses bulles. Son maintient est cependant court. Quelques traces demeurent sur le verre. Son attaque est réchauffante avec son alcool prononcé. Le café domine tout au long de son processus gustatif, laissant une profonde amertume de torréfaction. On sent bien les petits fruits et la réglisse noire se développer, mais le café reste dominant. En bouche, sa texture est crémeuse et elle présente un bon équilibre entre alcool fruits et café. Excellente impérial stout. Bonne amertume de torréfaction.

750 ml bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, brown head, nice lacing and lovely carbonation. Aroma is of roasted malt, toast, dark fruit herbal hops. Body is full, creamy and slightly crisp. Taste is of nutty, toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and bitter. Great Imperial Stout.

Aroma of coffee and roasted malt, pours a clear dark black without much head. Tastes of coffee and malt with a creamy feel and a bitter coffee finish.

freretoc (819) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 7, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la brasserie, couleur noire, peu de mousse, effervescence quasi inexistante, une bière que je voulais boire depuis très longtemps, une attaque sur le café assez forte et sur le chocolat puis continuité énorme sur le moca et le cappucinno, fin de bouche sur l’alcool vraiment trop forte le fin de bouche. Pas assez équilibré à mon goût.
