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 - 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.

RBSG 08. Thanks to Peter for going above and beyond the call of duty! Poured rich, deep black with a creamy cap of dark tan head.. I dont know that Ive seen a better looking beer. The aroma was semi-sweet with perfectly roasted coffee first and foremost.. dark chocolate and toasty, oatmeal-ey sweetness complemented perfectly.. everything came together flawlessly. The flavor was deep and seductive with rich coffee, dark chocolate, and lighter nutty notes.. coffee bitterness was amplified by the otherwise invisible alcohol presence on the edges, and there was a faint glimmer of smoke.. long, splendid finish. Heavily-bodied with just enough carbonation to perfectly coat all the tastebuds.. dry and smokier on the back.. this was a masterpiece!

Bottle shared by a friend. Black pour with a huge tan to light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, roast, coffee and cooked meat. Smooth and velvety coffee flavor with some malt and milk chocolate character before a roasty coffee finish.

Bottle @ Stouts Tasting Pt II. The pours deep brown with a beautiful, tight tan head. You cant deny that Speedway and its variants look gorgeous in the glass. The nose is big, rich roasted malts. Creamy milk chocolate. Rich toffee coffee milkshake. Mild lactose. Hints of char, burnt creme brulee. I dont get much coffee on the nose in this sample. The taste is quite acidic roast espresso bean. Rich earthy malt profile. Burnt caramel-covered brownie. Quite bitter on the finish. Full body, thick and oily. Overall, quite good. Theres a little too much acidity on the finish for my tastes.

On tap at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours a mostly blackish opaque with mahogany hues and a thin ring of light tan head. Aroma of rich, freshly ground coffee beans and bittersweet dark chocolate with some earthy roastiness. Starts with pretty good fullness and rich dark caramel and chocolate sweetness with a very assertive bitter roasty coffee bean flavor before a smooth, lingering dark chocolate finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness, but has an amazing coffee profile.

750 ml bottle via daknole. Thanks, Dakine! Shared at Davincis wedding. Congrats, Beejay! Pours a thicker blackish hue, opaque and thicker, well hazed. Darker with legs on the swirl. Cakey brownish head sits atop and sticks around, laces well and remains a cakey layer. Aromas are bigger coffee, gentle spice. Toasty roast, dark chocolate, bakers cocoa. Cocoa, biscuits and caramel. Nice dryness, roast present. Initial is fuller bodied, but still quite dry. Not thick and brooding. Some good big dark chocolate, bakers cocoa, mellow roast and coffee. Middle is a bit roasty, firmer coffee element. Touch of mocha, espresso. Firm roasty biscuits, cocoa covered. Some vanilla, coolness with roast, toast, carmelization. Some dryness, roast as we hit the backend. Finish is dry, roasty, carmelized. Lingering medium coffee. Firm cocoa/bakers chocolate throughout. Richer silky body, mellow roast and dryness linger on. Quite tasty. Reminds you how good Speedway is, guys. Tasty.
