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!

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2013 Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to pandableh! Black with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of coffee (but we can easily get the difference with the regular speedway), vegetal notes, earthy presence, roasted malt, caramel and slight fruity notes. Taste is moderately sweet with vegetal notes again, coffee and moderate bitterness. Alcohol and bitterness are more present than in the regular Speedway, probably because the Kopi Luwak coffee is more subtle (?). Creamy mouthfeel, but less than the regular Speedway. Full body. Quite complex, but theres a lack of balance (again, in comparison to regular Speedway) that make it hard to drink... even our 4 oz glasses werent easy to finish. I prefer the regular version.

Bottle. Opaque black pour with thick tan foam, very pretty. Aroma is a bit destabilizing. I was expecting a nice roasty coffee aroma, instead I get a really weird vegetal bomb like wet grass. After a couple of sniffs, things start to settle down and I perceive some chocolate/fudge and light, unroasted coffee notes. Still, the whole thing is a bit disturbing. Taste is more inline with what youd expect from a coffee stout except this one was super bitter, lots of roasted coffee bitterness, acrid and somewhat unpleasant. Drinkable, but very difficult - I couldnt tackle a 750 by myself, thats for sure.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 75cl, at 12%Vol, exclusive American brew, with coffee, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex Stout, roasted/bitter and slightly spicy/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, rocky head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

Sample at OBriens. Man, the coffee in this is so freaking good, the blend is so complex, probably the best coffee I have ever smelled. I could just smell this beer, it is so delicious. Flavor is also dominated by roasted coffee, with side notes of milk chocolate, nuts, and light vanilla. Creamy mouth feel, with the abv completely hidden. Damn good.

Ratebeer is making me do it again, another review from memory after this one got dumped from their data-base (the double coffee speedway ought to count too, but this site has become as childish as yelp). I remember this one as having a more distinct coffee taste from the original and a smoother roundness to the texture and taste.

Noir et pais. Le liquide montre aussi une belle mousse brune. Au nez, enrobants armes de caf, de chocolat, de caramel, de rglisse, de houblons, de torrfaction et de charbon de bois. Au got, les saveurs de caf poivr et de malts sont grandement apprcies par mes papilles. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-fort avec un ptillement ajust et une texture huileuse. En finale, une amertume fabrique par le caf et une chaleureuse accolade de lalcool.

Poured dark black with aromas of coffee, earth, coffee, chocolate, and more coffee. Flavors were the same heavy on the coffee, tasted like fresh coffee with some light chocolate and earth nice thickness as well. Thanks Hunter for sharing the fresh growler with me.

750ml bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of strong coffee, a lot of roasted malts, some chocolate, a little dough, and some light bitterness. Flavor very, very strong of coffee with a good Imperial stout under it. Smooth texture. A great beer.
