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.

I waited a long time to my lay a hand on this one and finally found in on a trip to So. California. This poured BLACK. Not dark brown but black with no light at all even on the edges and threw up a very fat tan head that lasted a long time. Nose is very powerful and of coffee and chocolate. Very thick mouthfeel. Flavor is rich roasted malts with the chocolate and coffee in abundance. Finish is dry and bitter. Simply amazing stuff. Maybe my best stout ever. I loved this stuff.

Had this is the closet for more then a year. Cracked it after a bow hunt in NW WI. Jet black, choclatley smooth stuff. Lots of flavors going on, but I sure dont get much in the way of coffee in taste or aroma, so thats dissapointing. Very sweet, glad to split this with a few people.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Crushed this one with TheDude. Black pour with a rocky, tan head. Aroma is of strong coffee, dark chcolates. Flavor is exhausting. So many flavors. Lots of coffee and chocolate, roasted delicious malt. Mouthfeel is velvety and chewy. I was tired after drinking this, in a good way, like post-sex.

Another great Honkeybra crush. Dark as John McCain’s campaign, possibly darker, but it’s a tough call. One of the smoothest, velvetiest mouthfeels of all time I have to imagine. Flavor is absolutely exhausting. A single sip is almost too much to absorb. Good luck if you try to crush one yourself, and if you do, I’ll see you in Hell.

750 bottle. Took to a neighborhood block party to share with a couple of neighbors. Black and thick, tan sturdy head. Remarkably smooth and flavorful. Chocolate and coffee flavors obviously. Also malt, toffee, deep fruitiness. Lots going on in the mouth. Smoooooooth. Really good overall.

Pours a deep black with a frothy tan head. Aroma is lightly sweet dark fruit and a lot of grounf coffee. Flavor is less chocolate along with some chocolate and sweet malt. Heavy bodied, chewy mouthfeel. Finishes dry, long and bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2008 Pour was solid black nice thick brown head. Nose chocolate, strong coffee, raisin, plum, cocoa powder, even caught a little blood...awesome? Flavor is hoppy, lots of coffee and chocolate. Nice alchohol warmth throughout the stages. Roboust hoppy charcole at first then settles down with the alchohol bringing out the coffee and caramel. So roasty very fun to drink. This is by far the best stout ive ever had. Im ordering another bottle to age!

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 750 ml bottle from Market of Choice. Last beer I drank in Oregon before flying back east, and did it ever ensure that that coast would need to do a lot to impress with its beer. Black and viscous like oil, this was so smooth going down that I didnt even notice how fast I was drinking. Theres almost no alcohol taste either, which is astounding in something 12%. Its beers like this one that make me wonder if Im missing something by not drinking coffee.

750 ml bottle. Its been a while since Ive had a beer infultrate my top ten. That wait is over. Pours black with a luscious brown head that lasted through mid-glass and left lots of sticky brown lace. Very pleasant aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. The flavor is simply outstanding. Rich chocolate and coffee abound with some roasted malt also present. The mouthfeel is rich and smooth. Absolutely no hint of the 12% abv. I believe the word decadent applies very well to this beer. Superb!
