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.

Pours deep black with nice creamy brown head. Nose is a sweet, boozy malt with coffee, vanilla, and oak. Taste is big and bready, wth dark chocolate and Expresso. Finish is very fruity with lots of fig, plum, and raisin. Medium bodied and very creamy. This is an excellent stout.

Smells like a hot brownie but the first tastes are hot fudge on a mild vanilla ice cream. Hot fudge sundae taste continues but a nice, dry bittering effect creeps up by the 3rd sip and stays with you. Nice balance. Very drinkable!

Pours silky black with some lacing. The nose on this beer is better than any beer I've whiffed. It has all the aroma of a Rochefort 10; Christmas pudding, plums, raisins, toffee, treacle; but with the unmistakeable toasty and roasty stout smells that any good imperial stout should exhibit. The let down (if you care to look for one) is that the flavour is noticeably more subdued than the aroma. It is velvety smooth though, with a real syrupy consistency. Just divine! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delcious beer. Had it first on a tap and it blown me away, so I had to try the one from a bottle and its also marvelous. Taste is full and rich, sweetness is well balanced by bitterness. Marks of coffee and pralines. Alcohol is well hidden.

Huge expectations after finally being able to get my hands on this one in Australia. 750ml bottle, bottle October 2016. Pours with a fantastic head for a beer of this size, sticky lacing. Many typical imperial stout flavours and aromas but the thing that struck me most was the perfection of the mouthfeel, carbonation and palate. Each of these aspects work in perfect harmony with one another. The balance of this beer is world class (ESPECIALLY for the ABV) and the flavours are delicious. Great Stuff.

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.
