COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We often use Speedway Stout as a jet-black canvas for homages to things we hold dear, whether it’s artisan coffee, a favorite edible or sumptuous flavor combination. The most recent variation of our celebrated imperial stout honors the culinary character of the Hawaiian Islands by combining the lush sweetness of coconut with vanilla and Ka’u coffee. Named after the region of Hawaii from which it hails, Ka’u is produced from some of the world’s rarest coffee beans. Slow-grown beneficiaries of nutrient-rich volcanic soil and idyllic climate, Ka’u offers nuances of caramel and hazelnut plus a soft floral character, all of which marry seamlessly with natural sweetness from the vanilla and coconut as well as Speedway Stout’s inherently rich, chocolaty character. Say aloha to something truly exceptional and evocative of its namesake isles.

Tap. Pours black with a brown medium sized head. Aroma is coconut, soy, roasted malt and hints of vanilla. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. Body is medium,texture is oily, carbonation is average. Finishes balanced with coffee. Nice base beer but this version seems extremely overrated.

On tap at Underground. Pours a deep but clear dark brown with a thin tan head. Warm vanilla and coffee, toasty and full of chocolate. Medium bodied, big, warm, lovely. Alcohol picks up a slight spicy note on the finish. Warm but incredibly smooth.

Mortlach (2536) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 18, 2018
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma beige molto persistente. Al naso sentori di caffè, cocco, vaniglia, cioccolato fondente, alcol. In bocca ha un attacco dolciastro con finale amaro lungo, caffettoso. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Buona, ma mi aspettavo di più.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2018 On tap. Black color with mocha head. Aroma has milk chocolate, cocoa shake, caramel ice cream. Taste has chocolate, toffee, sweet coffee latte, toasted coconut, bitter roasted malt and cold brew coffee on the finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation. A nice variation of the original Speedway, flavorful yet easy drinking.

Tap @Hey Hop in Rome. Black pour with a compact and tick brownish foam. Nose: creamy chocolate dominates the aroma, sweet coffee, more chocolate, caramel flavored coffee too. Mouth: quite tasty, rich mocha, a bit sweet, cocoa milk. The aftertaste is really round, with a massive sip of chocolate.
