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.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2005
This was great. Poured off the tap dark chocolate color with nice caramel colored head. coffee, chocolate, caramel, malt, hops in this toasty flavor that doesnt seem to quit. I normally have a hard time drinking stouts, but this one was easy to drink. It was a comfort beer, much like comfort food, it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy while you keep the flavor on your tongue.

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 (90) - 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.

Bottle at fermentoren Copenhagen. Pours pitch black with a light tan head. Amazing aromas of lots of coffee, roasted malts and milk chocolate. Such a sweet and balanced aroma. Taste is more bitter, like dark chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied and kinda creamy with low carbornation.

Faathoven (62) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - DEC 29, 2016
Pours dark brown but in the glass appears pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is deep chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and a hint of licorice. The same in the mouth: coffee forward with dark chocolate, toffee, some dark fruits, hints of vanilla and licorice. Full body and creamy mouthfeel. So satisfying! So warm! So good!
