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.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2010
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.

4.4

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!

ben4321 (6900) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2010 Location: 750 ml bottle from NickD717 via trade, 3/24/10, my last beer from our Summer ’09 trade

Aroma: The nose has lots of coffee, with chocolate and other dark malt notes
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with a small, lasting brown head
Flavor: Nice malt dominated flavor, roasted malts, and lots of flavor
Palate: Full bodied, creamy and enjoyable texture, a touch of alcohol feel
Overall Impression: Drinking this one with some friends to celebrate my time living in MD. The age did this one well, it is rather good. Moved the rating up just slightly from 4.2 to a 4.3. Thanks, Nick! This beer is to you, Rockville!

Location: On tap at the Brewery, 1/8/10

Aroma: Lots of roasted coffee, chocolate, and caramel
Appearance: Dark black beer with fine brown head
Flavor: Roasted malty flavor of coffee, dark chocolate, and vanilla, with some nice roasted and chocolaty bitterness in the finish
Palate: Full bodied, smooth brew with a creamy mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I’ve been holding onto a bottle of this beer for a while, but I was able to try it on draft while visiting AleSmith, and I am curious to see how the ratings will compare between the draft and the bottle (with some age on it) versions. Here goes the rating for the draft version:
A big coffee flavored beer that has a really nice overall feel to it. This is a very good Imperial Stout. I enjoyed my draft sampling quite a bit, and I look forward to the bottle sampling. (4.2)

4.2
dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Poured into a tulip. Jet black with an epic mocha head. Head dissipated fairly quickly into a 1/4 inch ring with a small swirl of foamy bubbles floating in the middle. Left a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma was intense with coffee. Flavor was terrific with coffee and dark chocolate most pronounced. Dry, slightly bitter finish. Full bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Glad I finally got around to giving this one a try.

4.7

Huge Beer! Jet Black like motor oil, with a toast-brown head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramelly flavors. Velvety smooth texture full-bodied.

4.2
Dedollewaitor (16583) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle @ Hj Hansen, Odense. Pours completely black with a small creamy brown head and lacings. Nose is roasted coffee. Pretty complex. Taste has chocolate, coffee beans and a hint of vanilla. Silky smooth and full palate. Bitter roasted dry coffee end. Nice
