Speedway Stout’s 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 beer’s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stout’s 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.

Absolutely pitch black with creamy brown head. Aroma has coffee at its centre, accompanied by lots of sweet, chocolatey malt. Background has some sticky cake fruits. Big coffee taste too, more like an espresso than a flat white. Apart from the coffee, no one flavour is too overpowering. Well balanced mix of chocolate, caramel, toffee and some more cake fruits. Not a lot of alcohol burn, just smooth, easy drinking. Well deserved reputation.

(1 pint can)
Having decided to pay due respect,
To my local BrewDog Bar,
I perused the place with a curious intent,
And sought a good beer from afar.

The infamous, legendary, Speedway Stout,
Did all to return my gaze,
Upon opening the can,
Said the beer to the man,
"Prepare, good sir, to be amazed!"

A sapid, squid ink, jet-black beer,
with a tinge of mahogany brown,
provided a beautiful, dense tan head,
For which it was duly renowned.

Coffee and chocolate,
Vanilla and rum,
With oak and brown sugar galore,
Liquorish and treacle,
Dried fig and plum pudding,
Could only make way for much more.

A dry hint of cinnamon, warm winter spice,
And a hearty singe of booze,
The raisins in brandy,
With toffee and fudge,
And a delicate treacly ooze.

Light as the air, and much like a marshmallow,
So smooth and so sumptuously rich,
With oaky dry sherry,
And juniper berry,
And elderberry scolded in pitch.

The mineral water,
Like lamb to the slaughter,
Makes for the true brewer's best friend,
Remarkably sweet,
Yet the bitterness makes itself known 'til the last bitter end.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 Przehajpowane piwo moim zdaniem. Pite z puszki, więc może butelka za miesiąc uratuje renomę. Wodniste, nie do końca ukryty alkohol. Mało ciała!!!(Miejmy nadzieję, że zmienię opinię, bo podobnie było w przypadku biscotti break... butla super, puszka dno)

Pours black with light beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, vanilla, some coffee, sweet, rum. Taste is soft, sweet, caramel, vanilla, toffee. Too many tastes. Super beer!

Czarna nieprzejrzysta barwa piwa, piana niewielka, sprowadzająca się do pierścienia na szkle. Aromat strasznie jednostajny, czuć głównie kawę i paloność. W smaku to co w aromacie, słodkie piwo z lekką goryczką. Czuć dość alkohol, piwo nie jest jakoś bardzo cieliste. Bardzo się zawiodłem. Miał być sztos, wyszło co najwyżej niezłe piwo.

Absolutely perfect imperial stout. Worth its reputation. Coffe and chocolate in aroma, which stay in taste plus caramel. Perfectly balanced. You want to sip it all night although it has 12% of alc.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa y ligeramente chispeante. Fuerte aroma a café frío, muy puro. También chocolate, vainilla y pasas, con algo de licor. En boca entra dulce, sin excederse. Mucho café, chocolate y vainilla. Malta torrefacta más presente que en aroma. Reminiscencias de pasas. Final muy ligeramente amargo y algo licoroso. Postgusto a pasas y café. ¿Sobrevalorada? Probablemente. ¿Riquísima? También.

This used to be one of my favourites. It was big but still dry. Drunk from a can in Danmark recently and it was incredibly sweet. I am not sure if it is me or my pallet that has changes.
