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!

Big thanks to cgarvieuk for a taster of this - Cheers Craig. Lovely minerally coffee nose on this very dark brown beer. No head and next to no carbonation. Sillky almost oily palate. Mildy sour dark malt with rich coffee that starts mellow and blooms in to something stronger. The coffee keeps going andf going through to a lingering aftertaste. Lovely coffee beer!

Bottle courtesy of brad (who else?), thank you sir! Pours dark brown, no head, no lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and coffee grounds. Tastes lke coffee liqueur, no carbonation or other beer characteristics. Maybe some slight bitterness in the finish. Smooth. Strong, and shows it. Interesting.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Bottle shared at Bruces, London during The Stouts Tasting, Pt. II. Big thanks to Paul for this bottle! Pours black with a large, thick, beige cream head. Aroma holds some nice roast, alcohol, cocoa, suggestions of mocha. Medium to big sweet flavor, not cloying, rich, well toasted bread, some earth, dark chocolate, burnt earth, some ashes, hints of dark fruits. Full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Warming finish, some ashy-roasty bitterness, bittersweet baking cocoa, very mellow coffee presence, light tangy dark fruits, suggestions of licorice, scorched earth. Very nice overall, though I think I like regular Speedway a bit more.
