COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Speedway Stout’s 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 beer’s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stout’s 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.

Wow, finally get a chance to try this one. Have missed out on it on every previous occasion, but this time, I picked up four bottles from SB. Three for aging and one for a completely ordinary Tuesday. Pours pitch black with a thick, large tan (yet with a reddish hue) head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is intense. Lots of coffee, heavily roasted malt, chocolate, a bit of licorice, oak wood. Taste is wonderfully complex and rich. Opens a bit sweet, almost with a hint of vanilla, before turning into a long very gently cocoa bitter middle part, before turning towards the sweet side with port tones in the massive finish. And what a finish, it just refuses to let go of your palate - the taste stays with you forever. Very alcohol warming. Low carbonation, full bodied and sort of creamy-oily. One of the best I’ve had.

Jet black with small espresso head. Nose is medium roasted coffeee, cocoa nibs, vanilla, dried plums, coffee liquor. Taste is sweet and malty. Upfront there are notes of coffee and cocoa. Towards the end the coffee notes intensify and combine with a delicate boozy warming. Amazingly smooth for such ABV. While gently present, alcohol is very well hidden. Sticky mouthfeel, low carbonation. Just great.

Jet black pour with a massive chocolate latte head. Nose is cocoa, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, hazelnut, raisin. Really smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Taste is initial malty and coffee bitterness, then vanilla sugar, dark caramel, a faint hint of bourbon whiskey. Finish is bittersweet with a little earthy hops. This beer is just unbelievably smooth and drinkable for 12% abv. Really great stout.

Piana średnio wysoka, brązowa, niezbyt trwała, redukuje się poziomu obwoluty wokół kieliszka. Zostawia lacing. W aromacie bardzo dużo kawy i czekolady. Czuć nuty pralin belgijskich i odrobinę alkoholowości. W smaku wyjątkowo gładkie i kremowe. Wybitne czekoladowe i słodkie. Czuć również kawę i delikatny karmel. Byłoby idealnie gdyby nie przebijający delikatnie alkohol. Gęste, likierowe, nisko nagazowane. Bardzo dobre!

AgentAle (1726) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2017
Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, licorice and coffee. The palette is intense caramel, tossed oats, fig and espresso. The transition is to a slight earthiness and creaminess. Slight alcohol and warmth on end but not as harsh as I expected . Appearance is a jet back body with a thin beige head that retains OK.

750mL bottle. Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, alcohol, sweet malt, and a little vanilla. Taste is coffee, caramel, light vanilla, roast, and a little cocoa. Good amount of booze on the tongue. Full body. Soft carbonation. Creamy, rich mouthfeel.

Just perfect. Dark and creamy without being overwhelming or too heavy. The palate hits you but also doesn't overwhelm. The coffee is delicious and pairs well with everything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One pint can into tulip. From World’s End, Hobart. Super viscous black beer with thin tan head. Pours like motor oil from a can. Aroma is mild coffee, cocoa, and distant chocolate. Intense solid mouthful of flavour. Oh, wow. Overwhelming in it’s initial boozy richness. After I’ve settled down a bit I notice toffee, raisins, cocoa, dark chocolate and late Irish coffee. Really sticky in the mouth and the glass. It’s great but my dislike of coffee stops me rating it higher.

Pours out like a stream of Castrol GTX, thick creamy caramel head bubbles away on top of a beautifully dark slick of beer. It is so rich it shocks the senses, strong in coffee, intensity of a liquor. It stings the tongue a little but each sip the complexities reveal themselves, a wonderfully sticky malt, burnt toffee and luscious treacle, boy this is a head spinner, take it slow.
