On tap at the Mule Bar, Winooski VT. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a dark brown almost black color. Quickly dissipating slim white head. Sticky rimmed/ringed lacing. The aroma started off with a beautiful blend of the sweet to roasty coffee. Subtle vanilla. Smooth milk chocolate, and some dark chocolate. Some bitter coffee bean. To my knowledge since Im a bit uneducated on actual "Vietnamese coffee", theres a nice grabbingly sweet to bitter coffee bean abounding over top of the milk and dark chocolate. Semi-smooth and somewhat sticky on the aftertaste to run into the finish. On the palate, this one was about a medium on the body with a certain smoothness just impounding my tongue ever so lovely. Overall, beautifully and wonderfully done imperial stout. I would love to have this again.

Thanks Matt for sharing the crowler! Poured into a snifter showing pitch black with a half a finger of latte colored foam. The nose shows a lot of notes of milk chocolate. The palate is thick and foamy with a moderate carbonation. Light sweetness throughout with flavors of milk chocolate throughout but ending on a clean harmonious black coffee bitterness. Fantastic.

On tap at Elizabeth Station. Pours an opaque dark brown with a dark beige head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, some fruity notes, pleasanant, but not very intense. Taste is chocolate, some spices, slightly boozy, but easy drinkable. Chocolate and coffee aftertaste. Very good.

Draft - Big sweet roast and choclate. Jet black with a rich brown head. Coffee, dark chocolate and a rich long finish. Solid, but not my favourite of the variants.

Tap at Logans. Black with one finger head. Wonderfully balanced, which seems especially difficult when coffee is involved. Light booze, dark chocolate, light caramel. Perfect amount coffee - just right. Super smooth.

Incredibly disappointed by this one. I love regular SS, and I guess I expected way too much outta this one. All of the smells & flavors were similar to regular SS; nothing to prove its specialty. Idve loved to see more caramel sweetness plus a condensed milk creaminess in this beer; that wouldve been really true to the Vietnamese coffee style. Its a good beer but definitely not one that makes me choose it over a standard bottle.

On tap at When Pigs Fly in Kittery, Maine. Very reminiscent of regular Speedway, although the coffee addition is prominent and adds an excellent additional layer of flavor and complexity. Strong chocolate/cocoa flavor that, combined with the thick, full mouthfeel, gives the impression of fudge. The coffee flavor starts off strong and lingers through all of the other flavors. One great beer.

Super good! I have had Vietnamese iced Vietnamese coffee, this does not taste anything like that, although this doesnt have any lactose in it either. Very rich and tasty.

Black pour, moderate to large sized tan head, good lace/retention. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, light roast, caramel. Medium to full body, creamy, very drinkable for a 12% imperial, really similar to regular Speedway. Its good but I still dont think its *that* good.
