COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout is our award winning year round Speedway Stout with Kopi Luwak Coffee. Considered on of the world’s 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 Diego’s Ryan Bros. Cofee leads to an extremely aromatic and excetionally smooth final product that complements Speedway Stout exceptionally well! Good to the last Dropping!

Tasting at Kevin’s. Huge nose of alcohol and coffee. Sticky and slight bitterness. Boozy. Slight berry taste.

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.

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.

Rating 3300! DAMN! I don’t 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 don’t really drink all that much coffee (as I don’t like hot beverages). This stuff is awesome! Heck of a beer!

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.

PhillyCraft (7582) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle shared generously by Hayden with Bill, Mike and Hayden, poured deep black with medium, tiny bubbled off white head, good lace. Notes of coffee, espresso, chocolate, roasty malt, the coffee really shines through on this regular version. I would be surpised if this wasn’t the best speedway I have tried. On to the B.A. Version.

AirForceHops (7536) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2013
2013 vintage, shared bottle out of Adam Jackson’s cellar. Can’t thank you enough!! The nose has a strange Earthiness that I can only connect to fresh cut blades of grass. NOT hops but the grass after you cut it and it sat on the ground awhile. The flavor is dark fruits, roast and a finely brewed, subtle coffee bean. Earthy flavors. Unlike any coffee bean I have ever experienced before. The uniqueness of this brew overwhelms me. This is unlike any other coffee stout I have ever had. I do NOT gives ratings like this often. This is worthy.

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 don’t know that I’ve 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!
