Nice cinnamon and chocolate notes showing in this one which just adds to the complexity of an already amazing beer.
Black with a small brown head - Roasted malt aorma with choclate and coffee - Good malt body with a very good dark chocoalte flavour along with some coffee - The dark chocolate flavour goes into the finish - This was extremely good and just to my liking Theydon_Bois (19494) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014

>> Ink pour with ring of yellow bubbles. Pineapple fruity nose, moving to a bizarre tropical spice medley that I love. Not what I think of when I see "Mexican Chocolate" but okay! Spicy chai tea taste, lighter bright flavor than expected- pineapple and chai spices, mild hidden spicy pepper in the backend. This one really nailed it, perhaps the only treatment at Grand Prix 2014 of the 12 new versions that actually showed some talent.
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Muted chocolate and spice aromas. The spices dominate with dark roasts malt and chocolate notes. LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 4, 2011

Served on tap at O’brien’s Night of a Million Zillion Speedways 2011. The appearance is the usual Speedway deep black hue with a medium roasty brown head. The aromas are creamy dark chocolate, a good coffee dose still comes through too. The flavors have a tasty chocolate entry, very creamy texture. Some more coco powder presence in the middle. A great creamy full mouth. Chocolate, and coffee is a winner. Very nice! JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Standard Speedway appearance, black with creamy tan head. Roasted malts, dry cocoa powder, light notes of cinnamon and spice, espresso, and a medium dry finish. A nice version of speedway, but not spectacular.
