Trade from Sean9689, thanks buddy. Black body with a 2 finger creamy light brown head. Lots of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, some ripe fruit sweetness, hazelnut. Really smooth texture and soft carbonation. What a mouth treat. Delicious.

750ml bottle. Thanks Ryan for sharing! Poured a black color with an off white head. Coffee, roast, chocolate and some vanilla. Can not go wrong with any Speedway variation! Ataraxia (586) - California, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Almost black, opaque, thin cappuccino head. Sweet milk chocolate, creamy caramel, smooth roasted coffee, sticky toffee, and hints of vanilla. Initial mild bitterness grows through to the residual black coffee finish. Very smooth and creamy, a little sticky, and gentle alcohol warmth.

Bottle enjoyed @ CBC Frivillig fest. Pours pitch black with a creamy beige head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is dates, plums, prunes, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla,chocolate, coconut and some earthiness. Flavour is lightly sweet and light bitter. Full bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Finish is the same as the aroma with a nice warming alcohol touch.

Bottle. Pours thick pitch black with thick mocha head. This beer is pure decadence. Aroma has some liquor at first, cocoa, fruity figs, burnt figs, coffee berries. All this on a malty roasty background with tons of fresh pressed coffee and fresh grounded beans. Taste is same, awesome balance. Really fruity coffee, rosy malts, cocoa and chocolate. Quite some fudge and caramel notes. Light body for abv with light carbonation, almost coffee like. Finish is roasty and lasts for a long time. Warming, yet no presence of alcohol. rmhancock (23) - USA - JAN 23, 2010
I had this at O’briens during Beer Week in San Diego. Coffee, Coffee, Coffee. Like an Espresso shot . Jet Black like motor oil, with a toast-brown head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation. I liked this beer but it was a bit over the top for me. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Draft at Woodshop 5.0. Many thanks to Chris and those involved for making this beer appear. Pours a very dark, chocolate-brown color; medium brown head with fine-bubbled lacing. Absolutely gorgeous coffee aroma: well-roasted, fresh, non-astringent, with hints of creamy milk chocolate; great nose. Medium-to-full body: very creamy texture, lively acidity, average levels of carbonation, but a lovely appearance in the mouth; loads of well-roasted coffee, chocolate, and a delicately roasted malt presence throughout; very soft, very lovely. Long, long finish of coffee, chocolate, and soft roast. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 13, 2010
On tap @ O’brien’s Night of a Million Zillion Speedways. Black with a small creamy mocha head. Aroma of smooth mellow coffee, chocolate, with light notes of earthiness, vanilla and alcohol. Flavor is lots of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some bitter dark malt. Full body with light carbonation and very long finish. Damn good beer, the coffee aroma and flavor is very strong but not acidic at all. Think I like the regular version slightly better. ryan (3185) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Tap at Woodshop. Huge, massive, coffee nose, far exceeding the regular Speedway by a mile. It’s very nice and fresh, the coffee has a good roast to it, but it’s more the quantity that is impressive rather than the quality of the coffee. Beyond the coffee, it’s typical Speedway, which is always very solid. It’s a real shame that so many of the ratings are from handbottles now (which I’ve had and I probably would have rated the bottle in the 3.5 range rather than the 4.3 on tap). It’s a joke, but I guess the tick is the most important part for some people.
