Excellent, super smooth version of speedway. Coffee is less bitter, very smooth with hazelnut and chocolate flavors. Aroma is fantastic. Goes down way too easy for the alcohol. It’s thick and rich and fantastically easy to drink a super huge beer.

Snifter at World of Beer Easton on 11/24/15. Not loving the $14.50 price tag, but I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while. Pitch black pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma of rich chocolate, sweet vanilla and roasty coffee with a slight bit of heat. Thick chocolate flavor with roasty coffee and sweet vanilla before a rich and thick fudgy finish. Exquisite. Didn’t have regular Speedway there to compare it to, but I don’t remember catching vanilla notes in regular and this one seems thicker and more decadent. Could be a draft thing too, since I can usually only catch Speedway in a bottle.

Wonderful stuff. Lots of coffee, vanilla, big roast, and dark chocolate. Pours black with great head and lacing. Touch of nut. Bitter finish with hint of caramel and touch of booze. Tap at Armsby Abbey.

Keg. Black with a medium sized light brown head. Lots of vanilla, light sharp alcohol, coffee, roasted malt, cocoa beans. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. I like the flavours, but it is a bit rough.

On tap at Dark Horse in Lowertown St. Paul with blonderedhead. 12 oz pour. Dark brown with a quarter finger tannish head. Aroma is not as coffee forward as you would expect but it’s definitely there. Working with a blend of chocolate and minor peat bourbon notes on the nose. Taste is a really nice initial dose of chocolate and hazelnut with the ever present coffee characteristics coming through. The mouthfeel is tremendous...smooth and silky almost like a chocolate milk stout quality. Aftertaste is typical coffee stout with a healthy bitterness. Awesome to see a bar in town carry this beer. Not my favorite style but really appreciate the effort.

On tap at Republic, pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Mild overall aroma of coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate, and light dark fruits. Taste of bitter dark bakers chocolate and cocoa powder, light coffee and dark fruits, finishing with a big punch of alcohol and more bitterness.

Merci à Lussier pour le partage que je découvre le lendemain de la déclinaison bourbon cette même variante. La bière est noire et opaque. Celle-ci est surmontée d?une tête bien mousseuse formée de magnifiques bulles bien aérées et duveteuses. Par la suite, l?ensemble me paraît mal défini. Je note un café estompé, un peu fade et même fatigué. L?alcool me paraît très présent et les saveurs, comme les arômes olfactives, bien insignifiantes. Un café bien sûr et un chocolat peu sucré. Sans véritable amertume ni torréfaction. Bref ça ne goûte presque rien. Disons que dans l?ensemble, la Speedway bourbon qui a immédiatement suivi cette bière m?a rapidement fait oublier la déception causée par cette bouteille décevante...
