COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Russian Imperial Stout with Coconut, Lime, Ginger, Lemongrass, Basil, & Coffee. Inspired by our brewers’ love of the assertive, bright flavors of Thai ingredients, this intensely flavored brew incorporates the vibrant quality of several Thai-inspired ingredients into our classic imperial stout. Powerful notes of citrus, botanicals, and tropical fruit balance the stout’s rich chocolate, caramel, and coffee character. The result is an amazingly flavorful and complex beer that pays tribute to the flavors of Thailand.

bottle. pitch dark, large brown head. roasted malts as usual, but also what seems to me to be coconut and green tea on top of the usuan alesmith aroma. coffee lower than normal, also raisins, if i didn't know i'd guess the coffee part had gone real bad and this was the result. flavor is roasted mals, coffee, sweet licorice, coconut. what a great way to destroy a speedway stout, not... however i do believe in experimentation so it's okay... but this abuse of the base beer makes it into something not so interesting.

Bottle from Mikkeller Bangkok, shared with the KL tasting crew. Poured a clear dark brown colour with a frothy, fairly short-lived tan head. The aroma is roasty malt, ginger, coriander, lime, lemongrass, sweet chocolate. The flavour is moderate sweet, light liqourice bitter with a silky smooth, dry malt, rich sweet spicy oily light warm alcoholic palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation.

Black pour as expected. Wild aroma and flavor. Hard to wrap my head around. Coffee is dominated a bit by all the spices and lime. Still heavily roasted and lightly bitter, ginger lime basil - so much going on. can't say I prefer this to regular Speedway but it sure was fun.

Draught at Himmeriget. Low but lasting light brown creamy head. Pitch black body. Mint lemon choccolate coffee aroma and flavor that is smooth creamy, a bit surprising, and very pleasant to drink. Low carbonation, little hops bitterness, long sweet finish. Alcohol nicely disguised.

mariuspoenari (2989) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2017
On tap at the Beertemple. Very dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Notes of coconut, chocolate, smooth coffee, indeed a bit of citrus and herbal stuff, and cocoa nibs. Smooth texture, much like the other Speedway stouts, but the special ingredients in this one are hardly an improvement over the base beer.

November 11, 2017 - tap at Beer Temple Amsterdam. Black pour with nice head. Aroma was coffee, fruit, spice and chocolate. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but had noticeable coconut and ginger with hint of lime/citrus.
