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.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 12/14rerate. Aged 2.5 years. A little too long. Vinous aroma and crept into taste. Didnt change rating but 2.5 yr bottle not nearly a 4.2..................purchased on summer trip to CA and stored for 7 mos. bomber to glass. I get much more chocolate (dark) in aroma than coffee. maybe vanilla? appearance is a 5 - dark pour with long lacing dark beige head. Taste is different than aroma? palate is med thickness. Taste is chocolate; and some nice coffee roast and warming alcohol a player as well as hops at end. very very good stout...

Aromas of coffee and alcohol predominate. Also toffee, chocolate, plums, prunes and raisins. Hops provide a generalized bitterness. Color is nearly black with a spare light-brown head. The 12% alcohol provides a high degree of alcohol sweetness; there is a reasonable bitterness level with that generalized bitterness typical of imperial stouts. Full bodied, prominent alcohol with its warming mouthfeel. Texture is creamy with slightly low carbonation. Finish is long with alcohol, coffee, plum. Overall this is a very good beer. Its complex, lots of different aromas. However on the minus side I do feel the alcohol and coffee are too dominate.

On tap at Bloodhound Bar Brisbane. Pours black as night with thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate that carries thru to the palate with licorice undertones. Rich, rich, rich and delish.

Jet black with almost no head. Roma is extremely dark, rich stone fruit, coffee, huge molasses and toffee notes, caramel, good fruitcake -- very luxurious. Taste is sweet but not cloying with a velvety palate and a long, silky finish. A very good imperial stout.

Bottle. Black pour with a tan head with a reddish hue. Taste and aroma is dark fruit, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. One of the best of the style.

ghendrix (150) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours thick black, foamy brown head. Aromas of coffee, caramel, toffee. Dark fruits too, though subtler than expected. Taste is initially a medium sweetness, with bitterness coming on stronger later, some alcohol but very well balanced. Body is heavy and it has a great silky soft feel. Finish is nice and lingering, with perfect balance of flavours. This one is really great.

750 ml bottle from Hawthorne Cellars. Pours pitch black with small to medium tan head. I let it warm for about 20 minutes before drinking. Great aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Smooth, velvety mouth flavour. Big coffee and caramel flavours up front supported by balanced hops and malt. Outstanding! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piana niska, beżowa, szybko opada do firanki. Za to już przy nalewaniu widać, że piwo jest gęste, oleiste i czarne jak smoła. Aromat średnio intensywny - głwnie czekolada, praliny, kawa, porto, sherry, sos teriyaki...W smaku faktycznie gęste, pełne, treściwe, dość słodkie, z pokaźną dawką czekolady, karmelu, trufli, rodzynek, daktyli, kawy i porto. Całe to dobro pięknie kontruje palona goryczka i lekka pikantność od drobniutkiego CO2, ktre mimo że niskie, to lekko kłuje w język i sprawia przyjemne uczucie. W posmaku rum, wanilia, sos sojowy...
Bogate, pełne smaku, wyklejające, ciężkie, deserowe piwo do powolnego sączenia. Niewątpliwą zaletą jest faktura i nieźle ukryty alkohol, chociaż nie wiem jak smakuje świeże - u mnie spędziło rok na leżaku... Zawodzi nieco delikatny aromat...
