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!

750ml bottle from a trade, thanks CheapBeerBuzz! @ PBF IX

Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, roastiness, some hoppiness, espresso, minor fruitness and hoppiness. Taste is roasty and chocolatey with loads of coffee, espresso, some hints of dark ripe fruitness and cherry. Finish is roasty, bitter and very dry with some espresso and dark chocolate notes. Quite a coffee overload, not as perfectly balanced as the regular version.

2013 vintage, shared bottle out of Adam Jacksons cellar. Cant 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.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Backlogged rating from the RBSG 2014: Expected color and some head but not much lace, nice oily tears. Big time coffee overtones on both the nose and palate. Heavy roast, char, leather and ashy notes too. A bit herbal however and a major disappointment. Chewy someone dry mouth feel. For all the hype that this beer brought, it failed to meet them. Give me a regular old Speedway over this.

Pailhead (6525) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate coffee, chocolate, and a hint of black licorice. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger beige head. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate and a hint of black licorice. The finish has moderate - heavy roasted coffee and a touch of vanilla. Its medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Back to back with regular Speedway...I thought the regular version tasted better.

Beerman6686 (6497) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2013
This one poured a dark cola brown with a medium tan head. Aroma was lots of dark deep roasted coffee, dark chocolate and lightly burnt malts with a decent scent of booze. Flavor was the same but a little mmore intense. The liquid rounded this one off better than the normal speedway and the booze is hidden pretty well. Havent had many better non BA stouts.

PhillyCraft (6450) - 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 wasnt the best speedway I have tried. On to the B.A. Version.
