COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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!

kolsvart med mellanstort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar kaffe och choklad! Väldigt rund och massor med kaffe och choklad! ! Lite alkohol. Från 2011 och riktigt bra!

Champagne bottle. Wonderful aroma of coffee & malt. Hey black color with a tan head that fades quickly. Flavor is lots of coffee, malt, & roast. Very full bodied. Wonderful beer!

Nocturne (764) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
750ml bottle. Black or very dark brown with a foamy light brown head. Aroma seems pretty shy when awoken from slumber, but some coffee notes start to come forth, with dark malts and caramel behind. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, distinct but by no means overpowering coffee accent, and a minor hint of fruit. High marks for integrating the coffee so seamlessly. Superbly poised mouthfeel, thick but not cloying, and extremely drinkable for the strength. Great stuff.

brigg (508) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2014
(Draft at Brookland Pint in DC) Black body with a small, creamy brown head, good lacing. Full bodied, thick and creamy; feels "delicious". Aroma sweet, caramel, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and alcohol. Strongly sweet but not cloying, balanced with strong but not biting bitterness; coffee and chocolate; vanilla; hint of sourness; strong alcohol but not harsh; long finish. Stout is not my favorite style, but a great stout is a great thing.

Alusmamuts (226) - LATVIA - AUG 15, 2014
Nice sweet roasted aroma. Dark brown with small light brown cap. Taste sweet with roated coffee bitterness, some crarbonistion bitternes on the tongue tip.

mandaritto (56) - LATVIA - AUG 13, 2014
Pitch dark (a bit brownish) with brown head. Strong alcohol aroma at the beginning, but after a while, everything gets softer, including own head :D. Aroma - clear, strong chocolate, coffee, alcohol, same as taste - great ballanced and awesome brew. Best when cooled a bit.

EvilCat (80) - FRANCE - AUG 12, 2014
Bouteille. Saveur bière. Robe noir profond surmontée d'une onctueuse mousse beige. Nez robuste partagé par la fève de chocolat et les notes grillérs de malt et de café. Notes boisées et fruitées sur l'alcool de prune. Corps puissant et voluptueux où l'on retrouve les notes puissantes cacaotées et torréfiées du nez. La finale est longue, sèche et amère , explosive sur l'orangette, le réglisse, le fondant au chocolat et le café serré. Pointe d'alcool en arrière goût. Un dessert et un digestif combiné dans une bouteille. Une tuerie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emartell (240) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - AUG 8, 2014
Aromas extraordinarios desde un principio. Es difícil distinguir aromas precisos en una bebida con notas muy diferentes. Sin embargo destacan en primera instancia el café, maltas tostadas, chocolate, vainilla, algo de frutas, quizá berrys y algo de licor al final. En cuanto a su apariencia, completamente negra, corona de espuma abundante de media retención, cuerpo redondo y nula carbonatacion. En boca es suave, cremosa y con un extraordinario equilibrio, ligeramente amarga en un principio y ligeramente dulce al final. Al paladar es sumamente compleja y exquisita a la vez. Suave y cremosa, chocolate amargo en un principio, café posteriormente, notas dulces y malteses al final, destellos frutales, quizá zarzamora y notas a vainilla. Simplemente genial. Quizá al final, después del trago se perciben notas alcohólicas, quizá un licor o notas a brandy que te recuerdan sus 12 grados AVB. En resumen una extraordinaria cerveza, muy rica, bien balanceada, compleja y la cual se disfruta a cada trago.

lesifflebiere (1244) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Noire et crémeuse, avec une mousse très foncée, brune cacao, qui disparait peu à peu. Le nez est très chocolaté, velouté et intense. Avec un soupçon de vanille en arrière-plan. Bouche très ronde, complexe, qui se termine sur une amertume torréfiée à l’extrême, elle dévoile toute son épaisseur. On ressent un peu l’alcool sur la fin. Seul défaut donc : manque de subtilité, de finesse. Sinon, c’est un colosse tout de noir enrobé, avec des saveurs explosives et percutantes.
