Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 4, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2012 On tap at brewery. Black with dense brown head. Nose coffee and sweet roast malt. Sticky. Taste is huge. Big sweet pungent coffee. Long and strong bitter back. Coffee and cocoa. Gooey as hell. Dry cocoa palate in finish. Rerating up from 4.1. Just super rich and thick, sharp and smooth and gooey all at the same time.

Itzjerm (2487) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2017
A perfect creaminess. With no milk sugars impressive. Nose is chocolate. Taste is smooth very similar to Vietnamese coffee. Maybe closer to chocolate milk. Head that lingers. Nice thick mouthfeel of course at this abv it should. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aleigator (875) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2017
Yields a coal black color with a huge, creamy dark brown head. Smells of sweet cold brew coffee, lots of milk chocolate and just a little hint of roast. Molasses and spicy licorice mingle into this foundation, producing a milk chocolate powder aroma. Has a thinner, velvet mouthfeel, with flavors ranging from sweet to dry, without a lot of nuances in between, tied together by a lower carbonation. Tastes of rock sugar and hot chocolate, molasses, surprisingly thin on the palate, with a slowly evolving coffee dryness. Once the coffee takes over, this begins to taste interesting, bringing flavors of dried herbs, earth, wood bark and sugared espresso beans to the palate, pungent and harmonious. Finishes bitter, bready and rustic, with its initial silkness. If it wasnt for the thin mouthfeel, with just a little more complexity to it, the beer could become mighty fine. As it stands, there is quite a bit unused potential to be found in here.

rumore (185) - Rimini, ITALY - JAN 9, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours practically black worth abundant cappuccino foam. Aroma is dominated by a sweet toffee feeling, but also dried figs. Body is medium-dense, with moderate stickiness. Taste is sweet at start, but some enjoyable bitterness and a little spiciness come up almost immediately. Finish is clean enough, with some bitterness persisting.

jflopsu (1414) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Pours black with light brown head. A coffee, cobalt, and roasted make aroma. A sweeter taste than other speedways with a sweet malt and caramel, but also coffee and chocolate. A sweet and roasted malt and coffee aftertaste.

Prokroustis (741) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 5, 2017
Pitch black body, big brown head. Strong, sweet coffee aroma, heavy with mocha, crme de cacao liqueur. Very heavy but incredibly smooth palate. Extraordinary flavour with sweet and bitter coffee, mocha, caramel, dark chocolate, toffee, hazelnut. Incredible.

anstei (1461) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2016 Bottle, organized by SinH4, many thanks! The aroma hints at what the mouth feels: Chocolate. Much more sweet chocolate than the regular Speedway, especially on the tongue. Cocoa, vanilla, coconut. Aroma is a tad mellow, everything else about this beer is absolutely stellar.
