3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at night off a million zillion speedways 2012 at obriens. Dark black pour, with a thin tan head. Chocolate, roasted coffee, heavy sweet malts, nutty peanuts, molasses, vanilla, and cocoa. A little bit boozy. Pretty good, but it’s too heavy and the nutty flavor was not that distinct. I liked the nutella much better.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at O’Brien’s for Night of a Million Zillion Speedways. Pours ink with minimal red foam. Very intense nose on this one- more Nutella than peanut butter and more Nutella than even the Nutella Speedway! Bourbon, vanilla, toasted hazelnut, pistachio all come through. Taste is spicy, a bit boozy, denser Nutella/hazelnut. Nicely integrated and my second favorite of the 16 varieties on tap that night. Definitely something to pursue!
