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.

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 (5472) - 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.

bierkoning (12800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle @ DTS. Cream and dark chocolate in the aroma. Roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate in the flavor. Alcohol is well hidden. Earthy hops in the aftertaste. Rather straightforward IS, maybe lacking a bit in complexity, but still a great beer.

ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Pour was a nice thick black with a frothy dark tan head. Roasted malts and coffee with chocolate came through the nose. Starts with a very slight carbonation on the tip tongue, flavor continues the roasted coffee and chocolate theme. Finish is bitter with a coffee like burn. Not a coffee man myself, but was very impressed with its usage here. I enjoyed how the aroma complimented the taste so well with every sip.

jerohen (2212) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2017 Re-rate: Bottled, 2013 version, tasted in 2017, bought at New Beer Distributors, NYC, USA. Fantastic complexity of roasted malts, lots of coffee, vanilla, licorice, caramel. Everlasting finish. At this age, truly fantastic. Original rating: Dutch tasting session Bunnik. Opaque, big brown head. Malty, coffee and some chocolate in aroma. Malty flavour, bitter, chocolate again. Lasting bitter finish.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2008
UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 Bottled, April 09, 3.4: Tried 2 different bottles but both were lactic. And the beautiful balance is gone as well. What happened? [email protected], July 08, 4.1: Nice aroma, blackcurrant, coffee, hint of black chocolate. Opague, brown fine head, good lace. Nice balanced flavor between sweet and roasted bitterness. Alcohol well hidden.

oh6gdx (25710) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2008
Bottled. Thick black colour with mediumsized brown head. Aroma is sweet malts, coffee, chocolate, licirice, alcohol and some sour smoked wood. Also a bit vanilla as it warms up. Flavour is very much the same kicking you in the face while drinking. A very nicely balanced big ABV Imperial stout, which still manages to be both powerful yet so smooth and nice.

Special thanks to RomanW70. Pours like old motor oil-thick, black with no head. Powerful aroma of coffee, chocolate, caramel and roasted malts. Taste was powerful! Coffee, chocolate, malts, caramel, alcohol. Phenomenal!!!
