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!

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with DrSilverworm and Dutchs staff; thanks darkmoon66). Looks good; a dull black with light beige lacing. Smells good too; sweet, chocolatey, and malty with a nice Kopi presence. Tastes like it smells with an exceptionally smooth mouthfeel. Awesome juice; one of the best Kopi stouts Ive had.

Pours a nice mahogany with tan head. The aroma offers up loads of rich dark roasted coffee notes, dark chocolate, burnt toffee, more rich coffee and a faint sense of some sort of raspberry like esteriness. The taste is similar as it slide across the palate on a velvet carpet ushering in rich dark roasted coffee, burnt toffee, some chocolate and then slick oily rich coffee goodness into the finish.

Pitch black pour with a small brown head that fades. Big roasted coffee aromatics with coffee, chocolate, and a bit of alcoholic sourness that reminds of a barrel treatment. Rich coffee flavor with chocolate, creamy vanilla, char, and a bit of woodiness. Very silky mouthfeel with good carbonation. Very nice and glad to have tried it.

75 cl bottle (12%) @ PBF Ⅸ Huge thanks to mr. tiong!
Aroma has mocha coffee, some tobacco, dark chocolate, ash and vegetables typical to coffee beers. Flavour has mocha, some dark and bitter chocolate and vegetables typical to mocha beers. Alcohol is well hidden and this is even a bit thin for this ABV. Alcohol notes get stronger towards the end of the glass. Rather good, but I must say that I expected more.

Growler shared with Theis on request from Doodler. Thanks a bunch. This was truly a pleasant surprise! It pours pitch black with a small tan head. The aroma is filled with coffee, vanilla, hard roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit and a light boozy kick. The flavour is very balanced with notes of coffee, chocolate, raisin, sweet tobacco, hard roasted malt, sweet caramel, light chili and warming alcohol. Creamy textured. It has a long sweet coffee caramel like finish. Amazing!

12oz handbottle pours a flat black with zero head. Nose is nice, aromatic coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, toasted malts. Flavor is sweet, smooth coffee, Kahlua, toasted bread. Medium bodied, roasted finish. Id love to try this again, seems like the hand bottle hurt the overall experience of this.

Bottle - thanks Stawn! Pous opaque black with a small brown head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is surprisingly not strong, notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Flavor is about the same, obviously coffee infused, but not strong or really noticeable as special. Lots of roasty chocolatey notes as well. Light sweet, light bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough, but not really even up to the level of a regular speedway IMO.

Rating 3300! DAMN! I dont drink regular speedway all that often, but when I do it is subtly impressive. There is nothing subtle about this version. IT ROCKS! Pours inky black with a large tan head over a opaque black hole of a body. CRAP [no pun intended]! There is a TON OF COFFEE in the aroma! Grassy nearly. A bit of creamer. Damn, it is so strong. By far the most complex coffee I have ever put my nose too. It is more coffee like than coffee (sounds corny, but wait until you try it!). Wow, flavor is all rich nuances on the coffee theme. Absolutely stunning. What is really shocking is how drinkable it is. I could have this stuff all night. Absolutely no hint of 12.2% whatsoever! Creamy carbonation. Reading over my notes, I count the word "awesome" 11 times if that gives you any hint of how much I like this stuff. The funny thing is that I dont really drink all that much coffee (as I dont like hot beverages). This stuff is awesome! Heck of a beer!

Consumed like 2 years ago, from a bottle. Poured a smooth dark, almost black-brown color with a nice small brown head. Aroma was rich coffee and chocolate, dark, molasses malt notes to it as well. Flavor was chocolate, roast and of course, coffee.
