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!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALESMITH for sending this out for RBWG and much props to Dak and smokepot23 for coordinating it! Pours pitch black with a one finger light brown head that leaves delicate lacing. The nose is dominated by coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is burnt malt, bakers chocolate, rich luscious dark roast java, ashy cocoa and some bitter hops in the finish. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Man, my favorite Imperial Stout on steroids. Fantastic beer.

Der malzige Antrunk wirkt trocken blechern, etwas holzig, mild alkoholisch. Etwas brotig, vergleichsweise langweilig. 11/12/11/11//11
