Not necessarily a huge fan of stouts but, damn, this could be the best beer I ever had. The brewer/creator was standing at the bar next to me and I just had to share my love! Westchesterco (2043) - mclean, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2014
On draft at the brewery. It is a dark brown color with a skight head. The aroma is coffee. The taste is is a strong coffee flavor with licorice in the mix. It is very bold and flavorful KingCecil (2084) - DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle @ home … It pours pitch black with a large creamy tan head… roasted malt, coffee, booze, caramel, sirup, vanilla, some spices….. very nice! love it! neepsntatties (1988) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle. Colour...basic black coffee with a thin tan head. Nose...lots of booze with coffee liqueur at the helm and coffee nips. Palate...smooth, rich and creamy with Irish coffee (minus the mint). The coffee is preeminent but subtle enough as to not be in your face! There’s bitterness but not too much and even the 12% isn’t overwhelming. A very well balanced coffee stout! jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Draft at Alesmith Tasting room with Linh months and months back. Pours a deep black body with huge foamy mocha head. Aroma is super rich coffee and noticeably different from the regular Speedway Stout (very lucky to be able to sample these back to back.) Mouthfeel is incredibly smoother with rich notes of chocolate, coffee, dark espresso, spice and syrup. Awesome.

Enjoyed on draft at Local Habit, San Diego. Smooth; rich flavor of coffee, espresso, chocolate. Gentle given the ABV. Delicious. Doodler (318) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Growler from PeteinSD - grazie counselor! Poured the contents with buds at Crooked Stave into CS Tulips. Motor oil black with a small tan head. Aroma of espresso, chocolate, bourbon barrels and toast. Flavorful stuff, with a sligltly bitter coffee overtone and loads of dark chocolates, vanilla and datres on the finish. Nicely carbed and well enjoyed by many. Nice brew.... wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Served on tap at AleSmith, side to side with regular Speedway. Deep black with a small beige head. Nose and flavor are roast, vanilla, chocolate, barrel, sweet coffee. Nice creamy mouthfeel, full bodied. I think this version is better than Kopi. mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Growler. Aged precisely an equivalent amount of time to a rabbit’s gestation period. This was done by the request of thome50. He said this was when the beer was at its peak. Pour is deep brown with a massive khaki head. Great lacing left on the glass after the head dies down. Sweet chocolate and coconut aroma. Only time I’ve ever had Vietnamese coffee was cold press, but this is very reminiscent. Sweeter and more desert-like. Taste has much more roast coffee character coming out, but it is a bit charred tasting to me. Lots of sweetness with milk chocolate and coconut still being present. Finish has some cherries. Just like regular speedway this is full bodied, but not too heavy and rich. Nice and silky on the tongue. Pretty damn good, but the sweeter character is really not something I like. Too much like desert coffee for me. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Served on tap at the AleSmith tasting room. The appearance is a typical deep black Speedway hue. Very thick body. The nose has that great creamy Vietnamese coffee to it with a full roast maltyness, chocolate, and some small barrel additions. The flavor follows suit. Very tasty coffee. A lot more creamy/lactose then the regular version. Dark chocolate and muted bourbon add to this tasty treat. Full creamy mouth with a bit of oaky drying. Yum!
