COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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.

Marheb (5128) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 3, 2016
(En fût à la source): Riches noisettes, arôme de cold brew, chocolat noir et petits fruits.
Earlier Rating: 4/7/2016 Total Score: 4.6
(En cask à l’Observation Room): Tout d’abord la texture est impeccable et la mousse s’agrippe aux parois à la moindre occasion. L’aspect chocolaté est encore plus présent qu’à l’habitude, le café est assez fruité et pratiquement fumé, très riche avec une moelleuse torréfaction. Superbe.
Earlier Rating: 2/6/2012 Total Score: 4.5
Très fumé, rôti, chocolaté, fruité avec une finale de café et de feuilles de tabac. Tapisse bien la bouche mais se boit quand même facilement pour sa grosseur.

Chocolate. Malt. Soy sauce. Pours solid black with a thin dark tan head that fizzles away pretty quick. Cocoa. Nuts. Smooth with a bitter finish. A little booziness on the finish but not 12% worth.

Sudz4Dayz (55) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2016
750ml bottle purchased at the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT. Pours jet black with a thick frothy whipped cream head. Smells intense of sweet coffee, cocoa and vanilla. Taste of dark cocoa, roasted coffee and vanilla and a slight boozy taste. Unbelievable mouthfeel, thick smooth. Love it. Great commercial beer. Absolutely top notch.

[Tap, 4hops]. W aromacie kawa z wanilią. Pojawia się mleczna czekolada. Wyczuwalny mocniejszy alkohol, trochę w stornę bourbonu i paloność. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Bardzo gęste, świetnie ułożone. W smaku kawa, czekolada na pierwszym planie. W tle wiśnie w czekoladzie. Konkretny waniliowy finisz. Alkohol dobrze przykryty, fajnie rozgrzewa w przełyku. Po kilku łykach wychodzi karmel, toffi. Bardzo pijalne jak na RISa. Nasycenie niskie, takie jak powinno być. Godne zapamiętania dzięki swojej gęstości, przez którą ślinianki cały czas pracują. Świetne piwo, klasa.

My first one had an initial aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, some fruits and alcohol was also present. Apperance of used motor oil with a thick dark tan head that settled quickly, and left plenty of lace. Flavors of roasted coffee, which was heavy all the way through. It also had hints of fruit and the dark chocolate was also quite noticeable. Together they all blended well even though the roasted coffee was dominant, still the others managed to get noticed. Overall a pretty fine brew, i am glad i finally found some. However on opening my second last night it wasnt as enjoyable because the alcohol dominated everything in both smell and flavor, it was kind of disappointing in comparison to my first sample. Guess that i will have to drink a third one to see what the truth is.Originally rated on 10/7/2008.
