This stout looks and smells like the other speedway versions since all contain coffee, but the Vietnamese coffee adds a really nice flavor not in the others. This was a cask version that had a well balanced carbonation level. Coffee is prominent with a very good contrast to the chocolate and roasted flavors. Best coffee adddition. Wish this was available in the bottle.

popway (164) - California, USA - SEP 24, 2016
On tap (12 oz) at Ale Arsenal. Black as night with a little mocha head that fades to cirrus clouds. An aroma of sweet chocolate, silky, creamy heavy mouthfeel, roasted coffee present that is not overbearing, but is gratifying in the mix. Alcohol is hidden, and took my time sipping this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that left good lacing. The aroma was strong brewed coffee, vanilla, cocoa and coffee beans. The flavor was moderately bitter with port wine, strong brewed coffee, vanilla cream, coffee beans, cocoa and anise. Incredibly rich and complex. Very long finish. Full bodied, creamy and smooth. Marvelous!

MarcoDL (4141) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016
Draft at Slaters. Black pour. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and cacao. Taste has creamy roasted malt, soft choco and roasty coffee. Nice soft beer, but not the best variant.

Vintage 2015: Pours black oily color, I think it must be clear, with creamy light brown head, which slowly transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Aroma: intense malt aroma with huge aroma of coffee ; fresh roasted coffee beans, best espresso coffee, dark chocolate, cacao nibs, hint of molasses, dark fruits in the background...flavor: very, very similar to aroma: intense, rich dark, roasted malts flavor, with notes, mentioned above. There’s also hop flavor, which takes on dark fruits, black edelberry, blueberry etc. Finish is slightly astringent (roasted malts, roadted coffee beans), dry and bitter (willamette hops??). Alcohol is very well hidden but after a few sips it kicks you in the ass....body is full, carbonation low to medium, texture is velvetly smooth. I’m a huge fan of all versions of Speedway stout, but still the regular version remains for my point of view the top one.

Bottle. Opaque dark brown with a frothy/creamy brown head. Intense coffee and fruity aromas, hints of caramel, toffee, peanut butter, biscotti, vanilla, alcohol. Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth, yet oily. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Complex and heavy. Exquisite roasted and coffee flavors into a harsh bitter finish.

Percy0103 (634) - MEXICO - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. A dark beer with minimal brown head. Deep aroma of coffee, dried fruits, malt and alcohol. Taste is very bitter with a lot of sweetness at the end. Robust bodied, oily, with faint carbonation and a deep coffee character. Unexpected sweet finish, full of biscotti and coffee.
