UPDATED: MAY 5, 2012 On tap at brewery. Black with dense brown head. Nose coffee and sweet roast malt. Sticky. Taste is huge. Big sweet pungent coffee. Long and strong bitter back. Coffee and cocoa. Gooey as hell. Dry cocoa palate in finish. Rerating up from 4.1. Just super rich and thick, sharp and smooth and gooey all at the same time.

Vid första doften är det grönt äpple. Men det försvinner snabbt och snart fullständigt. Smakar choklad!! Även doften domineras av choklad efter en stund. Chokladen är tydlig. Världsklass

Bottle. Great to finally tick this! Amazing rich coffee aroma with dark chocolate. Amazing. Huge coffee and chocolate flavor that doesn’t quit. Nice restrained sweetness. Mildly bitter finish. Big thick mouthfeel with some booze. Pretty badass! Lives up to the hype.

Bottle at my parents with my dad. Pour is pitch black with a big brown head and great lacing. Sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, coffee, light roast, graham crackers, caramel, and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is huge espresso, roasted malt, caramelized sugars, brownie batter, light vanilla, light oak, somewhat earthy, and spicy hops with a toasted bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Rich and decadent without bein over-the-top in sweetness. Really nice.

MacBoost (1333) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from trade. Pours like something you’d see in the showers at San Quentin. Aromas of coffee and roasted malts. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Thick like your mom. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and a dash of hops. Medium carb. Very good. Amazing, in fact. Fucken A.

Thanks to Owen for sharing 750 ML bottle Black with a light brown head. Good retention to this. Nose is chocolate, coffee, roast,vanilla, and chocolate milkshake. Brilliant nose. Sublime taste. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Big time chocolate milkshake taste with notes of vanilla. Sublime beer. Well hidden ABV. Top stuff

"This Speedway takes a tiny step backwards from the awesomenes that is Speedway stout. Just a touch too sweet with the amount of vietnamese coffee that goes into it, and the bitterness is like that of a young coffee bean. But seriously, I;m nitpicking. This beer is still the bomb."

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 750 mL bottle, huge thanks to E-Rod for sharing! Oily, deep brown pour with small head. Nose and flavor are absolutely rife with sweet, rich coffee grounds, cocoa, marshmallow, candied orange, chocolate ganache and sweet truffle. Stunningly drinkable. Wow.

I had at the brewery with Audrey. Fantastic stout. Great flavors of coffee in a little bit of a banana aroma.

Draft at the brewery. Honestly pours like a cup of oily French pressed coffee with brown lacing. Big aroma of sweetened coffee. Wow big flavor with lots going on. It’s like a boozey Smores with coffee. That’s crazy good.
