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.

400th rating! Have been saving this one. Bottle thanks to BOLTZ7555, THANKS AGAIN JASON!! Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark dried fruits, molasses, and port. Just fantastic! Pitch black with very small brown head that left no lace. Flavor is nice bitter chocolate and espresso. Palate is full bodied and oily flat. A medium bitter finish. Just a fantastic impy. Love the aroma the flavor and the feel. Thanks again Jason for hooking me up with one of the last of my fundamental beers. Just a great brew from beginning to end but the head was a bit lacking but still gorgeous. Really lived up to its score, bravo.

I thought, seeing as Tropical Storm (Hurricane) Eduardo is hitting Houston tomorrow, I might be washed out to sea, and it would be a shame not to enjoy some really outstanding and rare beers tonight... First off is a beer that I have wanted for years... Pours a jet black midnight colour, dark as the night when you were a kid sneaking out at 2am....Lacing is really good, spots and dots, lower than expected head, but for 12% good... light alcohol, fresh coffee beans, chocolate from a century old swiss chocolate shop.... wonderful in the mouth, oily and chewy- smooth as silk but bold like a new magnum 500 sharpie ... I dont get it, the points (score) doesnt seem to match up on how much I am loving this beer, its not the most wowing beer i have had, but its just fuckin good!.. shit yeah, man! ..i am the walrus..are you a Lebowski achiever ... I really like this beer, fuck that stuffed animal you hug at night,i want to spoon this beer when I go to bed...

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2008
pours a motor oil black with a thick tan head, slow to dissipate. aroma is overtly pungent- strong scent dominated by coffee with hints of chocolate. Flavor is extremely strong, with coffee again taking the forefront but roasted malts coming out as well. Hits strong, but the palate is smooth and balanced. Wondrous brew.

PorterPounder (7531) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Lakewood, Ohio, Rozi’s Wine House - foil wrapped 750 ml bottle - nice surprise find in a random visit to this Midwestern suburban store. Tar black pour that looks like liquid asphalt with a a sticky mocha colored head that leaves interesting swirls around the glass. Aroma of dark roasted coffee filters through with some earthy hints of topsoil, and licorice. Flavor is luxuriant, with loads of roasted bold coffee, chicory, dark bakers chocolate and licorice - all blended together superbly. Silky, velvety smooth mouthfeel that coats the tongue. Worth all the hype.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2009 Wow was this beer worth waiting for. Tons of burnt everything come through throughout the entire beer. Lots of coffee, obviously, but also lots of roasted malt and burnt unsweetened cocoa. Has a perfect amount of sugars for a higher abv beer in that they are noticeable without being sticky. Just great.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Bottle thanks to 1_2many. Pours dark black with brown head. Aroma is strong coffee and chocolate. Flavor is chocolate covered coffee beans. Huge amounts of malt, tons of coffee and chocolate. For all the extreme amounts of flavors, still very smooth. The high ABV is well hidden.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Bottle. Black with a small durable brown head. Aroma is strictly chocolate and coffee with a pinch of hops that were hard to find. Flavor is very sweet with a small bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Very very smooth and probably one of the most flavorful but drinkable stouts I’ve had. Fantastic.

skortila (5420) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2008
Bottle @ Dutch Ratebeer Session. Aroma has chocolate, coffee and some licorice. Thick, black coloured beer with a medium, beige head. Taste is sweet with a pleasant bitter finish. It has roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Probably some bourbon in it. Really a good mix between sweetness and bitterness.
