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!

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.

I was expecting one of the greatest imperial stouts, but the fact was that my expectations ware too high. Anyway for my point of view is mix of imperial stout and quadruple. Pitch black head. Aroma has loads of coffee, a llittle Chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits among figs. Taste is rather sweet and turns roasty. with lots of dried fruits. Body is really soft. Finish is slight dry with coffee and dark. No presence of the ABV at all.

Pours jet black with a nominal head, aroma of coffee and booze. Taste is Coffee, chocolate, sweet, malt and booze as it warms. This beer for is amazing. Right up there with Brooklyn chocolate stout as one of my favorites of this style. Mouth feel is creamy and full. Nothing bad to day about this brew. A must try for anyone who likes this style.
