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!

Bottle at John Bull. Pours black with a Nice creamy head. Quite boozy aroma and a lot of coffee. Medium full body, coffee bomb, some roasted bitterness. I like the original better! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another great thanks to the Peter and Jakob for this unexpected treat. Pour jet black, with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is sooo packed with coffee, roasted coffee beans, chocolate, licorice, slight vanilla, slight boose n wood, slight leather. Really a treat indeed. The taste is a little sweet up front, with a heavy dose of bitterness. Semi-full bodied, with a slightly flat carbonation. A little dry as well. To me, this shit is waaayy better than the "original" speedway. My kind of beverage

This was another beer I did expect to see without lots of leg work. When a chance came to try it alongside gems like Cascade Kriek I jumped on the opportunity. This ranks as one of the best beers I have ever tried. How long before we see Kopi Luwak Dark Lord?

Aroma / Appearance - The oily black pour is thick like melted chocolate. A dense mocha head suffocates all access to the base beneath. Just looking at it tones down the light around it. Smoke, vanilla, and a strong aroma of coffee remind me of the normal variant. Its hard to tell a difference between this and regular Speedway without trying them side by side. However it just begs for more reflection.

Flavor / Palate - Chocolate, coffee, ash, vanilla, and caramel all complement each other in a heady blend that coats the palate with the texture of a huge bold imperial stout. Anise in the creamy finish is like drinking the inside of a decadent truffle. From start to finish it does not disappoint. The only flaw is that after just a few ounces it is gone for good.

thick black, with a finger if dark milk chocolate head. Deep, heavy coffee on the nose. Same thick mouthfeel as normal speedway, with the classic dark roast and chocolate flavors. The difference is in the coffee tones. Its a more distinct, standout coffee flavor than normal speedway, but not as intense coffee as the beer geek weasel. Still its fantastic

Bomber poured into a tulip. Pours dark black with a pretty sizeable head. Nose is dark fruit, coffee, cherry, vanilla. Flavor follows with not as much sweetness as Id prefer - lots of coffee bitterness. Full bodied and creamy. Similar to regular Speedway but the coffee factor is amped up.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate coffee, chocolate, and a hint of black licorice. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger beige head. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate and a hint of black licorice. The finish has moderate - heavy roasted coffee and a touch of vanilla. Its medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Back to back with regular Speedway...I thought the regular version tasted better.

2013 750 ml bottle (thanks for sharing, jpdurden24). Pours jet black with a thin, bubbly head and consistent lacing. Lovely aroma of chocolate, perfectly roasted coffee, licorice, and rhubarb with some sweetness throughout. Complex, layered flavor of bakers chocolate, bitter coffee, a spicy nuttiness, rye, and cinnamon, with a solid malt backbone and an ever-present earthiness. Medium to heavy body with an abrupt nutty, bitter finish. Ive wanted to try this for years, and the beer came damn close to meeting the hype.

750mL courtesy of Shane. Awesome. Split 2 ways on Fat Tuesday. A: Viscous pour yields cirrus fluffy cappuccino head. Black like its afraid of the light. Glass coating legs. N: Fudge, chocolate, and espresso bean. Vanilla edges. Berries round out the profile nicely. Has the deep lushness of the Kopi Luwak. Slightly nutty. Biscuit and some smoke/char. T: Sweet and somewhat savory. Very nutty - walnuts and pecans and loads of dark chocolate edged by smoke and leather. Coffee penetrates the soul of this beer as does the clean finish that Kopi Luwak is so famous for having. Hint s of crystallized honey and freshly tilled dirt. M: Viscous and coating. Alcohol is moderate, but does not burn. Can get slightly overbearing after too much. O: A deep experience worth having. Layered with depth, this is worthy of the accolades. Dont age.

2013 vintage, shared bottle out of Adam Jacksons cellar. Cant thank you enough!! The nose has a strange Earthiness that I can only connect to fresh cut blades of grass. NOT hops but the grass after you cut it and it sat on the ground awhile. The flavor is dark fruits, roast and a finely brewed, subtle coffee bean. Earthy flavors. Unlike any coffee bean I have ever experienced before. The uniqueness of this brew overwhelms me. This is unlike any other coffee stout I have ever had. I do NOT gives ratings like this often. This is worthy.
