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.

Bardzo głęboki aromat czekolady i świeżo palonych ziaren kawy. Lekka pralina i kakao. W smaku degustacyjnie, czekoladowo-kawowo, gęsto likierowo i zakaskakująco pijalnie jak na parametry. Wspaniałe piwo.

750ml bottle from 2014, bought from Brewdog.com (15.25):
Great stuff from AleSmith again here & a beer that was every bit as good as Id hope for going in; it was definitely worth the wait in cracking this bottle open. The beer was kicked off by a lot of darker, roasted malts & coffee flavours but it was also a touch sweeter than expected thanks to the sugars & chocolate, but also the darker fruits & vanilla that featured too. The beer was quite rich & complex with good carbonation & only a little of the 12% abv. showing nearer the end of the nose & taste, something that helped the beer down very easily. The beer was very much a moreish offering with some dry touches nearer the end & some subtle darker fruits coming through to keep things interesting at times.; I really enjoyed drinking this one & it seemed to go down slightly better than the Vietnamese Coffee edition that I tried on-tap last year; an excellent beer that you definitely need to try, its one that Ill be on the hunt for again now.

Frudel (123) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle, aged 1 year and a half. The bottle serves a black liquid with a quite big brown head. Aromas are coffee, brown sugar, caramel, roasted malt, chocolate. Amazing taste, the complexity of this liquid is Wow! Medium sweetness, roasted malt , chocolate, with a nice coffee presence, it is very good, the alcohol content isnt a problem at all, we barely feel it. Creamy, full body. One of the best Imperial Stout you can find out there!

One of the coolest things about drinking fine wine is the complexity of flavors that one picks up on the palate. This beer is like that! So many hidden little bursts of chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted malt and the list goes on and on. All these tastes coming together to form one gigantic brew.

imperial_suchy (123) - Rybnik, POLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Piwo bardzo ciemno brązowe, prawie czarne, z beżową pianą. W aromacie czekolada, praliny, kawa, kakao, bardzo subtelny sos sojowy i nuty waniliowe. W smaku potężna dawka gorzkiej kawy. Oprcz tego mleczna czekolada, kakao, trochę rodzynek, delikatna ziemistość. Piwo jest bardzo gładkie i kremowe, ale nie jest jakoś totalnie gęste i wyklejające. Bardzo fajny i smaczny imperialny stout.

Quite black appearance with little head. Complex tastes of nonstop, coffee, caramel and star anise. Heavy body, great smooth carbonation and a finish of complex chocolate. Great complex heaven with surprisingly little alcohol taste
