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.

Thanks to the efforts of Adam at Platinum Cellars we are now able to experience some of the delightful beers that we could only dream of. Cost is irrelevant even though there is a serious kick to the kredit kard every time I visit. I enjoyed this with Dave and Steve, my two mates who now bow their heads and admit tht they too, are beer nerds. This was our last beer of the night where there were many great beers supped before this. But still a beautiful beer. Great coffee aromas with roasted malt and caramel. Thick as a triple espresso with a similarly coloured crema. A delighful blend of coffee flavours and well hopped bittereness being supported by a great malt roastiness. A fantastic nightcap.

Piwo z kranu w Absurdalnej Ciemne i nieprzejrzyste jak tylko piwo może być, jedna z najlepszch pian jeski widziałem - wysoka, beżowa, drobno/średnio pęcherzykowa, 1-2mm zostały praktycznie do końca, pięknie koronkowała. Aromat głównie czekolada z kawą, może toszeczkę słodkich nut chlebowych i owocowych (śliwka) także alkohol. Rewelacyjnie złożony. W smaku czuć alkohol, który jednak w ogóle nie przeszkadza, jest dobrze wkomponowany, wytrawny; dalej głównie kara i czekolada, leszcze przebija się też karmel i ciemne owoce (śliwki, wiśnie, wigilijny kompot :)). Piwo gładkie, oleiste, z długim wytrawnym finiszem. Kawał dobrego stouta.

Baclog. Mi2 at Cardinal 08.04.13. Dark brown, almost black, but with a little red shine when held up towards the light. Aroma of alcohol, some hop and roasted malt. Chocolate and sweetness in taste. Aftertaste of dark chocolate and warming alcohol. Fine and round mouthfeel. High drinkability, considering the ABV.

Bomber poured into snifter. A tad alcohol taste upon the first few sips but that fell away as beer warmed up. Great aroma of toffee and smoke. Wonderful mouthfeel and aftertaste. A treat on a cold night.

Tap@taphouse, Copenhagen - (Can’t believe this is my first time having the base brew having had many other variants) anyway - pours black as night with a thin tan head. Aroma can taste is roasted malty, with big bold chocolate and coffee notes, caramel, liquorice, brown sugar, some dark dried fruity notes. some nice burnt malty notes, smooth mouthfeel, lovely stuff.

rami_pl (801) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 24, 2015
kran w jabeerwocky. czarny, oleisty, z niewielka piana. W aromacie bogato, czekoladowo, kawowo, palenie, alkoholowo, ciemne owoce (bardziej wisnie niz sliwki), nieco karmelu, troche pumpernikla... ladnie to wszystko komponuje sie. w ustach analogicznie, alkohol ewidentny, ale w ten pozytywny sposob. w slodka strone w smaku, odczuwalna choc niewysoka goryczka. Zaskakujaco lekki, latwo pijalny - byc moze to zasluga nieduzej ilosci ciala, choc jak dla mnie wolalbym go wiecej. klasa piwo.

750 ml bomber. Deep black, nice creamy head. Initial blast of coffee and vanilla. So deep, rich, delicious. Perfect winter stout.
