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.

Frudel (185) - 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 (175) - 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

kaserov (524) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2017
Tomada en buena compaa en Vivalabirra. Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrn de tres dedos de grosor (lenta formacin, burbujas finas, compacta y de buena retencin). Carbonatacin imperceptible y dira que mnima. Aroma increble a caf, dulzn, tambin torrefacto (dark fruits tambin, aunque en aroma yo no las capto, pero estn ah). Sabor a dark fruits, torrefacto, mucho caramelo, con final de caf algo amargo. Hay algo de alcohol pero llega como dos segundos despus de haberla tragado y es muy mnimo. Muy cremosa y compleja. Imperial Stout irrepetible.

gallaghermurph (54) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Pours a blackout curtain black, with a creamy nut-brown head that shows its thickness in thatbit supports itself. Aroma of coffee (obvious), molasses, brown sugar, maybe even a little dark leather. Mouthfeel is immediately creamy and even a bit chewy with small bubbles. Taste is exceedingly complex, with brandied cherries, sweet carmelized sugar with almost vegetal undertones. This is all on top of a powerful baseline of coffee, somewhat bitter steak char. Theres a lighter aftertaste than Id expect which is almost of banana and grass. On the eve of Donald Trumps inauguration, this thing is yuuuuge.

beer_queue (136) - California, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Pours thick with a big, billowing dark brown head; plenty of lace around the glass, and its pitch black in color of course. Complex nose of dark chocolates, buttery/creamy malts, lightly spiced, bitter honey, brown sugar, and of course a lot of bold, dark-roast coffee. The taste is just as complex as the nose. It arrives with bright, acidic coffee with a little bit of spice and hops before transitioning into a smooth, creamy malty middle. It finishes very nicely with plenty of bold coffee notes, brown sugar, and some alcohol. The warming of alcohol is present throughout the palate but is especially noticeable in the finish. Once warm, the coffee notes stand out the most and followed by some more sweetness and alcohol. Smooth, heavy body; low carbonation; finishes warm, long; dry as hell. Beautiful coffee imperial stout!! The strength is where it should be, and the complexity rewards in layers.
