COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on of the worldís most expensive and rare coffee varieties, the beans are specifically selected for their ripeness and quality by the civet, a small jungle marsupial that feeds of the fruit of the coffee cherry. Expertly roasted by San Diegoís Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

RBSG "THE SHIT":
This was an amazing beer that was produced by Peter for the 2008 festival Rate Beer Summer Gathering. Peter was very generous and supportive to the site to do so. The beer was black with a beautiful dark brown head. The aroma and flavor had gobs of milk chocolate and very smooth full black coffee. The flavor had more of a bitter sweet chocolate than milk. This was more intense, flavorful and delicious than the original. Where this blows away other coffee beers is the smoothness and real taste of fresh coffee. It didnít have the tart roast or two day spent grind smell/flavor. This was like an amazing cup of coffee with a milk chocolate bar and shot of alcohol in it. Full bodied and silky with great warmth. My wife needs to fill my cup with this every morning. After 7 pours I give this a 10/5/10/5/20

The aroma/taste is coffee, coffee and more coffee. Despite the huge coffee presence, there was no bitterness, just wonderful well-made espresso coffee flavor. Lots and lots body gives the illusion of sweetness, though actually leans to the dry side, giving high drinkability.

Svag doft av nyskuren grŲn chili och bitter choklad. Elegant och delikat. Bitter choklad i smak tydligt. Spritig. (SŚ stŚr det i anteckningarna, minns inte vem jag tradeade den hšr med. Kan inte utesluta att den har blivit misshandlad)

Some spilled onto my fingers for a nice lingering malty smell for the next couple of hours. Midnight black pour with modest carbonation forming a small dark tan head. The aroma/taste is coffee, coffee and more coffee. Despite the huge coffee presence, there was no bitterness, just wonderful well-made espresso coffee flavor. Lots and lots body gives the illusion of sweetness, though actually leans to the dry side, giving high drinkability.

berlinmany (217) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Very difficult to tell this is actually beer. Like nectar of espresso with a dark rich earthy huge blast of coffee aroma and flavor. Sticky but not sweet on the palate. Sampled in a Duvel glass that was perfect as the aroma was outstanding. Much different from the regular Speedway. There is no other coffee stout with more coffee flavor. Iím not a coffee drinker, didnít matter here.

On tap at OBrienís. 5oz pour for $5 filled to the brim of a 5oz taster glass. Some spilled onto my fingers for a nice lingering malty smell for the next couple of hours. Midnight black pour with modest carbonation forming a small dark tan head. The aroma/taste is coffee, coffee and more coffee. Despite the huge coffee presence, there was no bitterness, just wonderful well-made espresso coffee flavor. Lots and lots body gives the illusion of sweetness, though actually leans to the dry side, giving high drinkability. I sipped about half the glass, then drank the rest quickly. Certainly better than regular speedway, and probably on par with double-coffee speedway. Hard for me say, but I would guess a good bottle of BA speedway is better. Wonderful. Sad to see an empty glass.

1% of the total worlds production of this coffee went into this beer. Very difficult to tell this is actually beer. Like nectar of espresso with a dark rich earthy huge blast of coffee aroma and flavor. Sticky but not sweet on the palate. Sampled in a Duvel glass that was perfect as the aroma was outstanding. Much different from the regular Speedway. There is no other coffee stout with more coffee flavor. Iím not a coffee drinker, didnít matter here. This beer is outstanding. Somewhat similar to the oaked speedway with its creamy texture. In 1 word...Luxurious!

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of RobertDale, a fine fellow who has impeccable taste in beer & canines.
The beer pours perfectly black with a small head.

The aroma is rich & roasty with some dark chocolate, but more just a ton of coffee character. Itís got some rich vanilla and some booziness.

The flavor is just huge, itís got a bunch of coffee and rich maltiness. Itís ashy, somewhat sweet, but itís go t a nice warming boozy character and.. didi I mention? fabulously balanced roastiness.

This is one of those beers where itís hard to put a finger on why itís so great, except to say that it is just immensely enjoyable.

MrHangover (2532) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma has roasted coffee, thick malty, sugary molasses, caramel and vanilla. Flavor is bittersweet, lots of coffee and vanilla. Very thick mouthfeel, syrupy, lots or molasses and caramel. Coffee influences are really upfront and balancing out the sweetness. Low carbo, very nice unit.
