COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 world’s 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!

Rich malt, slightly bitter and with a touch of licorice. Mild spice. Intense coffee, somewhat bitter. Touch of barrel induced paint. Mellow dark fruits. Finishes smooth and dry. Rich but a touch harsh.

Leighton (21819) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London during Jack’s farewell tasting. Massive thanks to Paul for hunting the WhaleSmith. Pours deep brown-black with a thick, creamy beige head. The aroma holds heavy dark malts, chocolate cake, raisins. Medium to big sweet flavor, lots of sugary dark chocolate, fairly mellow coffee, plenty of dark fruits. Full bodied with fine, tingly carbonation. Warming finish with strong but balanced out dark malt character, rich chocolate, a bit of alcohol, some espresso, rich bread. Great stuff.

Bottle shared at Jack’s Farwell Tasting, massive thanks to Paolo for unearthing a top draw Impy want, 06/08/13. Mid black with a big dirty tan head that retains well - this chap indeed looks ’the bollocks’! Nose is roast malt forward, dark chocolate, coffee, dark malts, toffee. Taste comprises light boozey tones, dark chocolate, subtle coffee notes, oak, bourbonic tones, earthy, light minerals. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light warming booze in the finish. Great stuff - a decadent impy for sure, the alcohol was very well integrated. My only grumble - I’d have liked a touch more coffee as I do enjoy a good coffee blast, but I can see why this one is so highly rated in that the subtleness of the Kopi Luwak will win over those not ordinarily a fan of coffee in beer.
