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 @ PBF IX. Thanks tiong. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate muffin, some baking powder and biscuit. Rich flavour of roasted malts, espresso, earthiness, some pepper, biscuit, dark chocolate and some wooden notes. Full bodied and a dry, roasty, espresso finish. Coffee makes this way too dry. Alcohol comes through. Normal Speedway Stout is better.

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.

since i drankt my previous what, 30? most wanted beers, this was a most wanted for quite some time ! since i didnt get mine, cause the post lost may package ( no refund at all, just ... ARGH still pisses me off) lucky for me, bobochamps has fixed a bottle, and shared it with me . epic ! pours next to black, very small , thin layer of brown foam, wich fades in a ring almost imidiatly . smell has nice details of coffee, withoud being straight-forward cofee infused. gentle ! MY GOHD so ... soooo good ! its been a while since i last had the regular, but from what i remember, it was one of the ( the ?) best non-ba, non-infused, non-mixed etc imperial stout i had. this is even better. very gentle coffee, chocolate ( a bit less than the regular, to me ) very soft carbo, bitterness, sweet, roasted malts (not overpowering) very smooth ! buttery.. complex waawtch.. again, another beer that shocks me . im living an exeptional life, the last months ... this is another chapter in the book of best beers ever. thanx ignace !

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!

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.
