Theydon_Bois (20659) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
Keg at the brewery during the 2014 Speedway Grand Prix, 14/11/14. Black with a decent tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is light coconut, vanilla bean, chocolate, light roast. Taste comprises rich chocolate, sweet malt, coconut fudge, lighter vanilla tones, faint charr, coffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation with an oily mouthfeel, light booze notes but drinks under the ABV. Ok impy but I felt a little let down by this one, not much depth.

brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012
As with all Speedway: the beer is black and has a tan head. Wow, what a nose. Lots of raw coconut and vanilla which play very nicely with the intense roast, coffee, and dark chocolate aromas of Speedway. The flavor is almost like chewing on fresh shredded coconut. Tons of vanilla to it as well. A nice sweetness of chocolate and toffee, plenty of roasted malt and coffee, too. Just a fantastic beer.
