4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From RBSG 2008. Thanks to Peter and the guys at Alesmith for his special treat! Pours black as night with a thick tan head. Smells of rich chocolate, dark malts, cocoa, coffee bean, and love. The flavor was of more chocolate and coffee than regular Speedway, which is why I definitely enjoyed it just a tad more. Coats the palate with an oily, chocolatey layer and has you begging for more. Rich sweet dark chocolate and espresso is left in the finish and lingering aftertaste. Just a phenomenal brew and Im glad I got to try it!

Dégustée avec la version BA.
Brun foncée, col blanc-cassé.
Arôme offer un bouquet chargé niveau du café, malt grillé, caramel et bon chocolate.
Palais est épais, plein de malts, café est là sans être trop dominant ni sans avoir ce côté épicé de café ayant déjà un peu d’age. Carctère reste un peu sec, chocolate, grille avec un café plaisant qui arrive juste en retrait. ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle shared @ Sebletitje’s Farewell tasting. Coffee, chocolate, pretty darn great, light bitter, nice!
