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 California 10k shared by dodgrblu. Aroma is coffee, but seems a rather high class coffee. Med body or better. Flavor is extremely tasty coffee and a little chocolate. Finishes light/slightly treacle/malty. Delicious.

Tmoney99 (14186) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2011
RBWG 2011. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was a heavy toasted malt, strong coffee and dark chocolate. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy complex toasted malt, vanilla and chocolate flavor and a heavy complex dark chocolate finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

Scopey (14007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
Bottle consumed at THE stouts tasting part 2, acquired via trade. It pours very dark brown with a thick tan head. The nose is rather rich, very earthy, roasted malt, rich coffee, peppery, wood, touch of smoke, toffee and cocoa. The taste is rich-roast, aniseed, liquorice, rich coffee, light acidity, bitter chocolate, some sweet toffee, ash, toast, burnt aspect, pepper and baking cocoa with a bitter, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Tastes more bitter than regular speedway to me. Interesting and pretty tasty, but I definitely prefer the regular version! I have drank a full bottle of Speedway to myself, but this would be more of a challenge.

Christian (13336) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2013

Lots of coffee beans in the aroma, from putting your nose in a bag of espresso beans (good) to ashy, cold coffee (bad), along with dark chocolate, Sweetish, roasted flavour with licorice, coffee, and charcoal. Somewhat boozy alcohol

kermis (12485) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle shared at the get Dean to 5000 tasting, as Deans 5000 - yay! Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of massive roast, espresso, dark chocolate, fudge. Flavour is over moderate sweet and heavy bitter. Full bodied but missing some of the complexity of other top end imperial stouts. That said, still excellent.
