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.

Trade with Hallinghansen. Cheers my friend. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Smooth and soft as always with speedway stout. Very good tasty coffee and a whiff of chocolate. Whisper of nuts and alcohol. Warming and very sippable. Lovely!

Aroma of chocolate, mudcake, blackcurrant, strong coffee, slight hazelnut, very well rounded, and extremely good - more like very high quality cacao than chocolate, and same kind of blackcurrant / fruit note. Taste is filled with chocolate and coffee, with some nice inputs of vanilla and licorice. This is very very good, I had it next to the normal Speedway Stout which wasn’t impressive at all in comparison - they are like two completely different beers, this one has much more velvety mouthfeel and a darker head fluffy head - like a crema, great coffee beer.
