COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on 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. Expertly roasted by San Diegos Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

Smoother that regular speedway, still very rich, dark chocolate, roast, tons of coffee. Mouthfeel on this bottle seemed a little thin compared to what a remember from other variants, but it was still super awesome. Alcohol hidden so well its insane. Great stuff.

Taste: Huge amount of coffee, faint bitterness, light roast, some chocolate..
Palate:Slightly under medium body, lingering aftertaste of the coffee that sticks on the tounge.

Midnight black with coffee head. Smells of coffee and malt in the nose. Smooth taste but coffee not really around until the finish. Good, but expecting a little more here.

I mean really? Aroma of super amazing coffee, cappuccino and vanilla bean. Taste is amazing. Roasty coffee is just right with chocolate sweetness and a chewy roast nut finish. Perfection.

since i drankt my previous what, 30? most wanted beers, this was a most wanted for quite some time ! since i didnt get mine, cause the post lost may package ( no refund at all, just ... ARGH still pisses me off) lucky for me, bobochamps has fixed a bottle, and shared it with me . epic ! pours next to black, very small , thin layer of brown foam, wich fades in a ring almost imidiatly . smell has nice details of coffee, withoud being straight-forward cofee infused. gentle ! MY GOHD so ... soooo good ! its been a while since i last had the regular, but from what i remember, it was one of the ( the ?) best non-ba, non-infused, non-mixed etc imperial stout i had. this is even better. very gentle coffee, chocolate ( a bit less than the regular, to me ) very soft carbo, bitterness, sweet, roasted malts (not overpowering) very smooth ! buttery.. complex waawtch.. again, another beer that shocks me . im living an exeptional life, the last months ... this is another chapter in the book of best beers ever. thanx ignace !

Bottle - thanks Stawn! Pous opaque black with a small brown head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is surprisingly not strong, notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Flavor is about the same, obviously coffee infused, but not strong or really noticeable as special. Lots of roasty chocolatey notes as well. Light sweet, light bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough, but not really even up to the level of a regular speedway IMO.

barn0216 (537) - California, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle shared by bytemesis. Black color. Light brown head but not much. Poured into a pint glass (only available), very little aroma to go on. Getting more chocolate and dried red fruits than coffee. Flavor is more overly coffee, ashy, cocoa, some alcohol, but nothing to write home about. Still a good stout but i dont believe this is better than the original speedway.

From the bottle, black pour and a dark tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Flavor is roasty and sweet. A beautiful imperial stout. The Vietnamese version is better, but this is still tasty as hell.
