COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Speedway Stouts ominous, pitch-black appearance has become a hallmark of this modern-day classic. Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the flavor, supported by notes of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. A healthy dose of locally-roasted coffee from Ryan Bros. Coffee, Inc. added to each batch brings out the beers dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stouts fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel make it very smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. This beer ages very well and will continue to mature for many years to come.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2010 A dark black beer with a massive head that lasts & slowly dissipates. The aroma is toasted bread, alcohol, coffee, & burnt. The taste is big heavy roasty coffee flavors, chocolate, burnt grains, bitter & massive yet not over the top on any one flavor. The mouthfeel was thick, creamy, yet chewy. Very nice lacing. This thing is big. Its like a mouthfeel of roasted coffee beans & roasted barley, & I really like its roastedness. Decently bitter with the bitterness from the hops, coffee, & burnt barley. Amazingly superb.

Bottle from theisti shared with my nephew. Aroma is pretty subtle, considering, but all the nice components of an impy stout are there: coffee, chocolate, nice bright hop bitterness. Flavor is smoother and softer than expected - lots of cocoa powder, charred caramel and bitter chocolate to start, with a really pleasant bitterness from the coffee that ties everything together. Extremely smooth, and dangerously easy-drinking for a 12% brew.

Opaque black. Very nice. Not much head though, but to be expected due to high ABV. Nose is coffee, espresso, dark chocolate, and brown bread. On the palate is a pleasant syrupy roasted malt character with balancing hops. Amazingly balanced, and the high alcohol is more subdued than I expected. Amazing beer. Finish never ends.

nimbleprop (7795) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Sampled on tap at Alesmith. Pours a deep, oily, murky, opaque black with a creamy, spotty, slightly beige head. Nose is all coffee, dark chocolate, toast, malts. Flavor is actually well balanced for a coffee stout, plenty of coffee grounds obviously, dark chocolate, toast, nuts, caramel. Thick and oily in the mouth but still drinkable without being overly boozy. Honestly, when I had this side by side with Old Numbskull... I thought the Numbskull was a better brew overall.

Bottle. Pours a brown quickly receding head over black hole of a body. Literally no light escapes it. Nose is fresh brewed espresso, extremely dark chocolate, coffee, coffee, coffee, hint of smokiness. I could smell this beer for hours. I would wear this beer smell as a cologne. Flavor is intense coffee, hints of chocolate at the end. Great duration. Incredible creamy mouthfeel with light fizz. Just enough hint of alcohol as well.

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Maybe just a shade below Ten Fidy as far as smoothness goes. Great coffee and chocolate flavor without being unbalanced. No hint of the 12%, this could be an Irish Dry its so damn smooth. Lovely.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2010 Bottle @ the Cuvee de Castleton release. I was unaware that this brew was 12 percent alcohol when i tried it. This beer is very good. Wish i could find it around here. Great RIS well done
