COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Speedway Stout’s ominous, pitch-black appearance has become a hallmark of this modern-day classic. Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the flavor, supported by notes of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. A healthy dose of locally-roasted coffee from Ryan Bros. Coffee, Inc. added to each batch brings out the beer’s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stout’s fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel make it very smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. This beer ages very well and will continue to mature for many years to come.

Mjollnir (519) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2021 Can. Pours dark red-black with a thin short-lived tan head. Very boozy aroma, roast, some chocolate, yeast extract. Quite sweet, mild burnt bitterness, dark fruit. Full body, soft carbonation, silly smooth with a lingering sweet roasty finish.

17Beer (1586) - Weston, Connecticut, USA - OCT 1, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2021 One pint can. Pours a completely opaque black with a big brown head. Lacing. Smells of chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Sweet espresso flavors with bitter ashy side of the tongue finish and alcohol warming. Substantial body and oily mouthfeel. Serious stout.

koorchuck (3220) - Nacpolsk, POLAND - SEP 26, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2021 Barwa czarna, piana niska, głównie w formie pierścienia. W aromacie owoce leśne, śliwka, marcepan, praliny, kawa. W smaku kawa właśnie na pierwszym planie, zaraz potem spora paloność, gorzka czekolada, przypieczona skórka chleba razowego, toffi, w tle wyraźny, ale przyjemny akcent alkoholowy. Raczej wytrawne, ciało średnie z plusem, wysycenie niezbyt wysokie. Świetne piwo, ciężko o coś więcej bez beczki.

Miły (734) - Kielce, POLAND - SEP 17, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2021 Wygląd: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana brązowa, średniowysoka, głównie drobnopęcherzykowa, po chwili opada do pierścienia, pozostawia lekki lacing. Po zamieszaniu szkłem zauważalna lekko oleista ciecz. Aromat: Niezbyt złożony. Dominuje dobrej jakości kawa, kawa z odrobiną mleka na średniowysokim poziomie. Kawa wsparta średnim toffi, biszkoptem, ciastkami oraz lekkim karmelem. W tle subtelny alkohol oraz nuta wanilii. Smak: Na pierwszym planie kawa, kawa z odrobiną mleka na średnim poziomie oraz średnioniski, półszlachetny alkohol. Dalej biszkopt, ciastka, herbatniki, toffi oraz nuta jasnego karmelu na średnioniskim poziomie. W ustach półwytrawne, treściwość średnia, gładka i aksamitna, wysycenie niskie, średnioniskie rozgrzewanie alkoholu. Goryczka niska, gorzkiej czekolady z alkoholem, krótka. Finisz wytrawny, gorzkiej czekolady, kawy i alkoholu. Ogólnie: Przyjemnie i niespotykanie gładkie, kawa jest wyraźna, a zarazem wtapia się w całość - sprawia wrażenie mlecznej. Zdecydowanie brakuje większej złożoności.

higgsbison (346) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2021
1 pint can. Pours opaque black. Thin, tan head. Light body. Lightly carbonated. Malty. Unsweetened cocoa and Black coffee. Very dry. Sweet with a subtle, slightly bitter finish. An odd, somewhat metallic aftertaste. My wife thought so too. Maybe because it’s from a can? Alcohol is well hidden. Very drinkable. A solid brew. July 2021. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AlfredoGarcia (530) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 6, 2021
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2021 500 ml can. Chocolate, caramel and malts. Dark low head. Complex taste, alcohol in the end. Good, but not unforgetable good as expected.

4.1
MNAle (630) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2021
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2021 Black, deep and dark, completely opaque body topped by a khaki head, tall with excellent retention, thick and creamy. A thick wall of lacing is left as it does recede. Aroma is not strong: roasted coffee, chocolate, and slightly sweet. Initial taste is vanilla, followed by roasted coffee, then chocolate, then the bitterness from the hops. All of this intermingles nicely throughout. The underlying sweetness of the malts is never more than a background foundation. The foremost flavors are the interacting of chocolate and roasted coffee. The finish is bitter, with the aftertaste being somewhat sweet and bitter with roasted coffee. The bitterness and the roasted malts linger. This is a big beer, but, apart from the expected effects, the alcohol does not become obvious until near the end, when the beer has become well-warmed to room temperature, and even then, it is just a bit of warming at the finish. The mouth feel is smoothly creamy and moderately thick. Overall, excellent. The story of this beer is complex malty goodness with coffee. The coffee is not overbearing and integrates nicely into the other flavors.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2021 Wow. I never knew what I was missing out on It's a beer you can just sip in tiny quantities til the end of the universe. Vanilla, coffee, buttery pastry. It's all there on the nose with some honey, raisins and spice. It coats the tongue and - despite all of that alcohol - goes down smoothly. It's quite something.

GoufCustom (3017) - HONG KONG - MAY 14, 2021
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2021 355ml botttle bought at Cave Beer Point in Mei Foo. Looks: Opaque deep Cola blackish brown colour with a thin layer of dirt-like yeast sediments; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy beige foam which fades in 10 seconds; Poor sticky lacing with zero carbonation. Aroma: Very fragrant dark malt, with roastyness, strong whipped cream, waffles, tartness, strong Port-like alcohol, strong caramel, sticky toffee, strong milk coffee, chocolate, strong sugar, spices and sweet bread. Nice! Taste: Strong sweet dark malt, with roastyness, strong tartness, strong soy sauce, strong black coffee, strong Cola, strong caramel, burnt toffee, burnt toast, cream, strong Port-like alcohol, strong dark chocolate, light floral, sugar, earth, spices, pine needles, dark bread, strong lemon, bitter hops and grass. Yum! Body: Full body. Oily palate. Mouth Feel: Full dark maltyness in a viscous background. Oily and, roasty with loads of nice soy sauce and tartness to hit, then comes with blissful booze laced with layers of strong caramel, burnt toast and toffee, cream, black coffee and dark chocolate. As if this is not enough, it’s well covered with piney hops-like spiceness to complement the restrained sweetness with lemony hops to round. I’m not worthy! Booze: the 12% abv taste like a cross between Port wine and Sherry, the spicyness enhances the booze taste further much like North Coast Old Rasputin. Its present can be felt but is more comfy than aggressive, make it an easy to drink experience. Unbelievable! Hoppiness: Spice in nose, same in taste plus earth, pine, lemon and grass; Bitterness - burnt malt and hops - is quite strong and very dynamic for a lasting, close to high-level bitter roasted dark malty finish. After Taste: Fairly dry. Roasty spicy and bitter to mouth. Comments: RIS usually means an all-out war for the senses, not this one: I can feel the potency through it's rich aroma and taste, but underneath it is very subtle, with waves and layers to impress rather than a straight KO. This is a RIS which is toned to perfection and friendly to experts and newcomers alike. A classic! P.S. What’s better than having this nice brew to celebrate my 3000th RB rating!
