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.

Monalovesbeer's rating

Monalovesbeer (21) - - NOV 8, 2012
Drank from a 22 oz bottle poured into a glass. Dark black oily appearance when poured with a small, thick and creamy looking head. Strong aroma of coffee beans. Tastes strongly of coffee as well, almost like an iced coffee with some alcohol thrown in! Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin with slight carbonation. As a coffee and beer lover, this is a treat! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This used to be a favourite of mine back when barrel aging wasnt even a thing. Have not revisited this in years. This particular bottle was a 2014 bottle so just over 3 years old. Pours a oily dark almost black colour with a cream like head. Aroma has big big licorice which surprises me a little. Then whiffs of dark fruits, probably amplified a little by the cellaring, coffee, dark chocolate and big roast. The taste is roasty too and with lots of licorice. Getting next to no sweetness. Oily mouthfeel and a bitter, roasty aftertaste. Verdict: I prefer a fresher Speedway Stout.

Shared bottle at Olut Sabadell. Pitch black with creamy head. Coffe and chocolate aromas. Creamy and buttery. You don't notice the alcohol at all.

Scipio (1009) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2017
This is my 1000th rating! Pours black with a medium tan head that settles slowly. The boozy aroma is strong with this one, with plenty of coffee and chocolate, lesser caramel, and hints of licorice and raisin. The taste is bitter, but not overly so. Very mildly sweet as well. Alcohol and chocolate stand tall, heavy roasted malts are found, and I still get lots of coffee. Subtle undertones are licorice and vanilla. Long chocolate aftertaste. Its medium bodied, has a creamy texture, and with minimal carbonation. For as potent as this is, Im astonished by how smooth and easy this goes down. Especially by how much the alcohol presence comes through. I believe I have another contender for my favorite beer.

Pite na bieda bottle sharingu. Samo prbowało wyjść z puszki. Fajna kawa, dobry balans nic się nie wybija, ale było tam czegoś mega wybitnego. Jak na pozycję w rankingu lekki zawd.

OminouSC2 (618) - Mora, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2017
Pitch black color, medium sized brown head. Quintessential Imperial stout aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, raisins, cocoa powder, toffee and slight vanilla. Taste of chocolate, coffee, chocolate covered coffee beans, roasted malt, caramel and cacao. Medium bitter finish from the coffee. Creamy, full bodied and well balanced - simply put: this beer is amazing.
