4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is roasted coffee, appearance is dark black, taste is very similar to smell, overall very good but expected more
Big and potent aroma with quality chocolate, huge roasted malts and coffee notes, caramel, toffee, liquor. Almost no alcohol, just pure awesomeness. Taste is embedded in a full body, with a creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Fudge, dark chocolate, hazelnut, roasted malts, espresso coffee and alcoholic spiciness. Finish is pure liquid unsweetened chocolate. No astringency, no messing around. An absolute beast. Chalumeaux (1645) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2017
Poured from can dated 01/17 pitch black pour with a nice creamy mocha head. Aromas of roasted malt chocolate coffee and vanilla. Taste is lucious and creamy super mouth feel coffee chocolate vsnilla. Super beer. I wonder if there is a difference between the can and the bottle. brandon182 (39) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2017
Pours a pitch black color with a two finger khaki head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and some sweetness. The flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of coffee coming through with dark roasted malts with some chocolate shining through as well. I did detect some alcohol but that wasn't surprising with the high abv. nickel (1218) - UKRAINE - OCT 5, 2017
Strong aroma of chocolate and coffee.
Explosive taste of coffee, chocolate, hints of prunes and grape. Thick and creamy, well balanced and drinkable.

What makes this beer great it's probably incredible balance. Nothing is to much and nothing is not enough. Nothing is sticking out. Just enough of coffee and chocolate. Moderate sweetness, untraceable alcohol , roasted bitterness. Highest level of imperial stout.

Apparence : Noire, reflets rouge foncé, léger col beige, rétention et dentelle intéressantes, très faible carbonatation. weordie (1352) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Nez : Café, malt grillé, chocolat, léger caramel, torréfaction à la fois des grains d’orge que ceux du café. Intensité tout de même moyenne.
Goût : Café, torréfaction, chocolat noir, touche boisée et alcoolisée en finale dans une amertume somme tout contenue. Équilibre entre les flaveurs, mi sucrée.
Sensation : Corps moyen-plus, bonne longueur, chaleureuse.
Bref : Mélange savamment intégré des flaveurs : café, chocolat, malt grillé, sucre, amertume, alcool. Bière de 12%, bien intense, mais très facile à boire. Points négatifs : nez un peu plus discret que prévu et corps moins crémeux que j’aurais espéré d’une bière de 12% au café.
Pours thick black with a thin head. Aroma is mainly roasted malt and coffee. The flavour is think chocolate milkshake with coffee, so smooth. Amazing beer beton (678) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - OCT 1, 2017

Absolutely pitch black with creamy brown head. Aroma has coffee at its centre, accompanied by lots of sweet, chocolatey malt. Background has some sticky cake fruits. Big coffee taste too, more like an espresso than a flat white. Apart from the coffee, no one flavour is too overpowering. Well balanced mix of chocolate, caramel, toffee and some more cake fruits. Not a lot of alcohol burn, just smooth, easy drinking. Well deserved reputation. victorsampson96 (140) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2017

Having decided to pay due respect,
To my local BrewDog Bar,
I perused the place with a curious intent,
And sought a good beer from afar.
The infamous, legendary, Speedway Stout,
Did all to return my gaze,
Upon opening the can,
Said the beer to the man,
"Prepare, good sir, to be amazed!"
A sapid, squid ink, jet-black beer,
with a tinge of mahogany brown,
provided a beautiful, dense tan head,
For which it was duly renowned.
Coffee and chocolate,
Vanilla and rum,
With oak and brown sugar galore,
Liquorish and treacle,
Dried fig and plum pudding,
Could only make way for much more.
A dry hint of cinnamon, warm winter spice,
And a hearty singe of booze,
The raisins in brandy,
With toffee and fudge,
And a delicate treacly ooze.
Light as the air, and much like a marshmallow,
So smooth and so sumptuously rich,
With oaky dry sherry,
And juniper berry,
And elderberry scolded in pitch.
The mineral water,
Like lamb to the slaughter,
Makes for the true brewer's best friend,
Yet the bitterness makes itself known 'til the last bitter end.
