Barrel Aged Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee that has been matured in premium bourbon barrels. Considered one of the worlds most expensive and rare coffee varieties, the beans are specifically selected for their ripeness and quality by the civet, a small jungle marsupial that feeds of the fruit of the coffee cherry. Good to the last dropping!

On the patio of some pizza place in the Summer of 2012. Pours black with creamy grey head. Aroma is beautiful, fuck yeah, deep coffee notes that melt with the perfectly smooth and inviting roasted-toasted malt, fuck yeah. Taste is beautiful amazing very smooth chocolate malt, some toffee. This beer is like an amazing meal made by one of the best chefs on the planet, and every sip is another course. This shit is the tits, fuck yes. If only it was not a whale.

Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a very dark brown with beige head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong coffee, roast, toffee, oak. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roast, strong kopi, toffee, vanilla. Really enjoyed this one.

2013 Bottle from trade. Stoked to get to try this one. Pours pitch black and thick looking with a dark brown and super creamy head like you would see on an espresso. Aroma is big chocolate syrup notes, lots of vanilla, some rich earthy coffee (though subdued), bourbon, wood, some roasted grains, tobacco, more vanilla. Flavor is up front roast, barely any coffee, bourbon, with a beautifully long sweet vanilla finish. There is some oak and wood here that lingers on the tongue with some vanilla and anise. Body isn't as thick as other Speedway variants I have had, but certainly not light bodied either. Low to medium carbonation. This is a great beer but doesn't live up to my lofty expectations. I really don't get much coffee from this one. Looking forward to trying the regular Kopi version. With that said, worth trying if you can get it.

MrHangover (4184) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle shared @ Deans aged pale lager tasting, courtesy of deanso. Really looking forward to this beer. The beer pours a pitch black colored liquid with a small brownish head on top. Aroma has coffee and bourbon, loads of dark fruits and molasses. Big caramel fudge and vanilla going on. Basically everything you want in an imperial stout is present. Flavor is intense... very sweet, touches of coffee and big wood characters. Long lasting, sweet cloying finish and amazing aftertaste. This one sticks.. Amazingly well crafted, epic brew!!

Vaiz (4448) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle at Deans aged pale lager tasting. Black pour, thin tan head. Holy shit this is probably one of the best beers Ive ever had. The aroma has roasted malts, subtle and smooth, coffee, chocolate and spices with quite some roasted malts. Flavor is very very smooth, creamy, slightly spicy, slightly bitter, great balance, slightly warming and very very very good. Amazing brew. One of the best beers Ive ever had. Fantastic.
