UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Bottle shared at Bruce’s, 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. Koelschtrinker (22074) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 9, 2017
Der malzige Antrunk wirkt trocken blechern, etwas holzig, mild alkoholisch. Etwas brotig, vergleichsweise langweilig. 11/12/11/11//11 Theydon_Bois (21482) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013

750mL bottle, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of deep complex coffee notes - amazingly complex and deep - along with a little roast, but the weasel poop shines. Flavour brings out amazingly complex coffee notes - holy shit - never knew a rare, complex coffee could amplify the regular Speedway Stout so much! Other than complex coffee, there are subdued notes roasted malt, and some unsweetened cocoa. Amazingly complex as highly drinkable. The best rendition of Speedway Stout I’ve had. Incredible. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014

Black opaque collor, small white head. Quite alcoholic aroma. Coffee and roasted maltyness. Medium-bodied. Lots of coffee, alcohol and roastyness. It is a good beer, very coffeish but not as good as basic version.

Aroma and taste are malts, roastyness, coffee, bitter, some hops, lightly spicy, a hint of pepper. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice! brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
A: The pour is viscous and black, just like regular Speedway, with a nice tan head on top.
S: The nose is full of some of the strongest coffee I’ve ever smelled. There are some notes of dark chocolate and roasted malt, but the coffee is the main attraction.
T: The Kopi Luwak coffee is just really incredible. The flavor is so intense, unlike any other coffee beer I’ve had. There is a noticeable bitterness both from the coffee and the roasted malts, with a bit of dark, bitter chocolate.
M: The body is incredibly full and rich with a low level of carbonation and a very creamy mouthfeel.
D: This is an amazingly delicious beer that I would try again any time. The only "problem" is that the coffee is so intense that there’s only so much I can drink at once. Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle @ The Lost Tasting Of Abbey Beers, Odense 2013. Thanks Sean 9689. Pours black with a creamy dark brown head. Roast, green peppers, coffee, liquorice, charcoal, and chocolate. Smooth and slick. Delicious.
