Taster at the brewery. Pours a dense black color with a small tan head that slowly recedes to a ring. The aroma is all coffee--dark and rich. The taste is a coffee explosion. I get multi-layered well roasted coffee, dark bitter baking chocolate and some bitter walnuts. No real sweetness. The palate is full, smooth, creamy and a bit oily with soft carbonation. Finishes incredibly long and dry. Overall: My favorite coffee stout to date, yummy stuff.

Brewed summer 2013. Decent stout and coffee, bit coffee appeared a bit musty. Drinkable and decent but somewhat disappointing compared to hype.

750 with the crew and alongside regular speedway, jamaica, and barrel aged. Much creamier and smoother milk chocolate and roasty malt profile. Decent bit of coffee and roasted malt presence. Dark fruit comes through really well, plum and cherry. Medium coffee aromas and flavors.

Dark inky black pour.... Velvety body... Light tan head... Aroma of milk chocolate, light coffee notes.... Flavor is sweet milk chocolate with light spicy coffee notes... Hard to believe there's no lactose... Some nuts, totally unique coffee, berries... Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from a trade. Pours opaque black, medium supper creamy brown head, great lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, ashtray, molasses, chocolate. Flavor is much the same, light plus sweet and medium bitter, some coffee acidity. Rich creamy full mouth feel, lingering bitter finish. Tasty!

luttonm (2430) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Draft at Brouwer’s, Seattle. Quite dark brown-black, dark head. Tart dark fruit, subdued smoky coffee. Body is full of alc sweetness. Some dry bitter coffee roast coming through to balance slightly. Licorice notes. Quite hot, I’d rather try this less fresh I think.

Black pour. Big tan head. Plenty of lacing. Nice aroma of chocolate, malt, roasted grains and coffee. Some vanilla notes peak through. Taste is a sublime mix of the nose and finishes slightly sweet. Nice beer.

750ml bottle, generously shared by WillRunForBeer. Poured black with a thin mocha head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. We compared this side by side with regular Speedway, and this one was definitely on the sweeter side. Not as harsh and boozy. Full bodied and smooth.
