COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Speedway Stout’s 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 beer’s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stout’s 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.

Love this well-crafted stout. True in its character. As a bud of mine said..it will make you a wide-awake drunk. :-)

Thick, Rich, and Creamy! With an alcohol content that could put down a horse! It pours dark as night with a brownish head. The aroma has plenty of carmel and COFFEE...of course. The palate is smooth and creamy and lasts well after its swallowed. Impressively balanced, not too sweet, and not too bitter (considering the coffee). Considering the alcohol content, the flavors are so well balanced.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 Awesome. Very thick dark chocolate, coffee and strong alcohol percentage (Although the taste hides it very well). I’ve had other stouts where the chocolate and coffee tastes just don’t seem right but this one is great. I wasn’t as big of a fan of the aroma as I was of the flavor, but that may have been unavoidable with such a high alcohol content. Regardless, this is a great beer

Bottle. High creamy and dense thick looking brown head leaving nice curtains. Pitch black body. Light bitter and yet creamy coffee choccolate aroma. Creamy and smooth intensive strong coffee choccolate flavor with a mild bitterness at the finish. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Alcohol can be spotted in the aroma but is very well hidden in the flavor.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2010 Bottled. Pours out in an aopque black topped with a low firm pale brown head. Big aroma of coffee, nougat, rich dark malts. Full-bodied with strong solid notes of of dark coffee dark chocolate and rich solid dark malts. Perfect mouthfeel. Long rich aftertaste of coffee, dark chocolate, burnt sugar and cocoa. A stone rock solid brew with simplistic wonderful flavours.

Ah, my first speedway! Pours thick and oily in the glass and produces a slowly building creamy mocha head. Fair dense coffee nose. Strong roast, hint of bourbon, full bodied and creamy. Great lacing. Warming throughout. Solid and sturdy.

To get into this rating you must understand that this rating constitutes from the tastes of this beverage from years back, 6 or so to be exact. Back then, this was a solid 4.4. Lately it’s seemed to me to be much thinner, with not as much of a punch. Regardless, one of the world’s top brews, the coffee notes are overwhelming in that way that leaves you screaming for more. YUM.

Bottle. Thanx Ölbutikken and Jeppe!!!! Pours a really dark/black color with a minibeighehead. Aroma is a good blast of coffee and dark fruit with some subtle roated malt and a wonderful caramel touch. Finally let’s taste this son of a gun. Unbelievable smooth mouthfeel! Taste is filled with fresh coffee,liqourice, dark fruit and some caramel. Pretty sweet but not overpowering. Supereasy to drink, dangerous! Great beer!
