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.

Samuel214 (713) - SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2016
Flaska frn Beergium, provning med lsllskapet. tminstone ett r gammal flaska. Svart med fingerhgt, grddigt, krmbeiget skum. Doft av toffee, inlagda br, choklad, kakao, ltt syrliga toner. Stor kropp, len och rund i munnen. Toffee, kola, torkad frukt, kaffe, lite lakrits, hrligt brnda toner. Relativt stor beska i avslutningen. Kaffet kanske frsvunnit en aning, tyvrr. Smaken ligger kvar lnge i munnen. Vxer till en fin choklad- och kakaoton och lite kaffesump och toffee. Lite vrmande alkoholtoner som drar t bourbon och brnnvin. Gillat den bttre nr jag druckit den tidigare, men r fortfarande en vldigt bra stout, utan tvekan. Knns verlag som att den drar mer t toffee/kola/torkad frukt och lite choklad n t kaffe och krvare, rostade toner. Len och rund. Gott!

This is an incredible stout. Pours about one finger of head, strong yet smooth start and finishes with light coffee notes.

Everything that it is built up to be. Speedway is absolute perfection. Decadent in the glass with black velvet color and smooth brown fudge head of foam. Loads of cocoa and coffee on the nose and pallet with lush caramel and prune supporting flavors.

Tap @ Gollem Antwerp Everything youd expect from a good imperial stout. Not spectacular though.

ciocanelu (1600) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 12, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 Dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has sweet malt and chocolate pralines with coffee liquor. Taste is quite malty and sweet at first but the coffee bitterness and roasted malt takes quickly over. Medium body and carbonation. Quite boozy for a coffee stout, kind of overhyped.

(bottle) black in colour with a frothy dark beige head. aroma of green apple and ethanol, with lots of roasted malts, brown sugar, earth and soy sauce. flavour is mostly roasted malts, barnacles and hazelnuts, quite boozy, with some notes of banana skins and boiled oysters in the semi-roasted-bitter finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle at home. Pours black with a medium tan head that fades fairly quickly to a small tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, molasses. Taste is big coffee, roasty, slight plum, dark chocolate, smoothness, slight burnt caramel. Lovely.

12%ABV. Imperial stout. Poured out oily black. I dont really comment on the head, but this one had a rich creamy cafe au lait colored head. 40SRM. Nose is actually milky and sweet and reminiscent of caramel, toffee, dates. The roasty aromas are coffee, charred wood, light wood smoke, Over ripe stone fruit with honey prunes and black plums being top on my list. Dark grape juice. Mouthfeel is full and syrupy. Palate has maple syrup, dates, date palm sugar and dark caramel and burnt sugar. Light creme brulee. Nice hit of alcohol up front and in the middle. Malt palate is broad with maltesers, malted milkshakes providing a strong almost milky base on which to taste the roasted barley and coffee flavors. The bitter takes on a fuller, more pleasing dimension because it is "lengthened" by the malt. There is a spicy component ot the tail end of the palate as well, medicinal and spicy, with anise and licorice, overall comes across like ouzo. Finish is wood smoke and pleasingly lingering. Overall, an impressive imperial stout that is smooth and gentle on the palate releasing the complexity of flavor in a very controlled fashion over the entire tasting experience. Goes on Favorites List!

Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Smells strongly of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet, coffee, hints of oak and vanilla, subtle alcohol. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, AleSmith Speedway Stout finishes with a lingering roasty bitterness.
