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 (3207) - 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. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2011
big thanks to someone for this freakin treat of a handbottle. pitch black with a deep khaki head. coffee, roasted malts, more coffee, vanilla, and molasses. crazy thick on the palate, the coffee is insane in this beer, solid coffee flavor, roasted finish, no sign of alcohol at all.

Another great thanks to the Peter and Jakob for this unexpected treat.
Pour jet black, with a creamy off-white head.
Aroma is sooo packed with coffee, roasted coffee beans, chocolate, licorice, slight vanilla, slight boose n’ wood, slight leather. Really a treat indeed. The taste is a little sweet up front, with a heavy dose of bitterness. Semi-full bodied, with a slightly flat carbonation. A little dry as well.
To me, this shit is waaayy better than the "original" speedway. My kind of beverage Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2013

(750ml bottle, courtesy of Bman1113vr) Pours an opaque black body with a small creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Flavor of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, and some vanilla. Excellent! dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Smoother that regular speedway, still very rich, dark chocolate, roast, tons of coffee. Mouthfeel on this bottle seemed a little thin compared to what a remember from other variants, but it was still super awesome. Alcohol hidden so well it’s insane. Great stuff.

Bottle @ The Lost Tasting Of Abbey Beers, Odense 2013. Thanks Sean 9689. Pours black with a creamy dark brown head. Roast, green peppers, coffee, liquorice, charcoal, and chocolate. Smooth and slick. Delicious. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Dennis at Alan’s. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of coffee, chocolate malt, roast, vanilla, roasted peanuts and coffee bean. Medium -full body. icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Pitch black pour with nice foamy brown head. Aroma has essence of coffee, alcohol and chocolate. Nice subdued coffee up front, bitter chocolate at the mid, and a slightly sweet and creamy finish. Alcohol warming sensation. This drinks differently than most coffee stouts, and is much better than the regular speedway I had before.
