4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Taster at the brewery. Pours a dense black color with a small tan head that slowly recedes to a ring. The aroma is all coffee--dark and rich. The taste is a coffee explosion. I get multi-layered well roasted coffee, dark bitter baking chocolate and some bitter walnuts. No real sweetness. The palate is full, smooth, creamy and a bit oily with soft carbonation. Finishes incredibly long and dry. Overall: My favorite coffee stout to date, yummy stuff.
Fajny aromat czekolady i lekko palonej kawy, w smaku konktretna kawa, deserowa czekolada, dość mocno goryczkowe, palone, przeszkadza mi trochę alkohol i brak potężnego cielska, overall nie urywa i kolejny SS do wykopania z TOP50. androman (2772) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2017

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza 2017. Its a whale. Black beer lasting tan head. Lots of coffee. Mocha coffee flavour. Smooth as hell. So my favourite imperial stout with exrea coffee. Smooth vanilla. Enormously good. The best of the Speedway variations. PotjeBier (3628) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2017

Draught drank w Masaki near South Bank book fair. Pours an opaque black-brown with creamy fizzy beige head. Lots of coffee, dark roast malt, light vanilla bean, some burnt/roast acidity in the taste where the nose has more bitterness, moderately herbal, dark chocolate, warming booze but surprisingly well hidden (12%!). Body is slick but very smooth, lightly sudsy faint lemon in the finish. Chocolate dark malt flavours balanced by plenty of coffee bitterness. Quite smooth/refined.
