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 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!

bleeng (1669) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2016
750 bottle thanks to me. This has held up very well. Pours dark and viscous. Big coffee and boozy nose. Taste is more barrel than coffee but much bitterness is still prevalent. This is just a great beer from one of my favorite brewers.

Zakoon (488) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
750ml bottle enjoyed @ Himmeriget. Pours black with a long lasting small brown head. A few floaties. Aroma is coffee, liquorice root, roasted malt, wood, dark chocolate, bourbon and vanilla. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied, slightly thin texture, soft carbonation. Finish is smooth and well-balanced. Too bad the coffee has faded so much.
