This stout looks and smells like the other speedway versions since all contain coffee, but the Vietnamese coffee adds a really nice flavor not in the others. This was a cask version that had a well balanced carbonation level. Coffee is prominent with a very good contrast to the chocolate and roasted flavors. Best coffee adddition. Wish this was available in the bottle.
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 One-year aged bottle shared by BelgianBeerGal. Rich, chocolate, coffee notes are smooth, not bitter. dambor (859) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 Pours black with small head. Aroma: tons of great coffee coupled with vanilla. Taste: smooth, with coffee and dark chocolate dominating. Palate is hoppy, but also full of chocolate and coffer. Awesome. biir (1681) - Berlin, - NOV 22, 2017
Tap at Muted Horn - dark brown color with off white head. taste is dark malts, coffee, sweet milk. alcohol well hidden. nice, but in terms of coffee stout, I think others are way more outstanding (like the Buxton one I had just a few days ago). Nische (2661) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2017

Lots of coffee, chocolate, pretty roasty, but nice ballanced taste, slick and medium thick body. Nice.

On tap at JL Beers. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is really creamy, lots of coffee and lactose, some chocolate. Taste is chocolate and coffee, some creamy sweet lactose notes. Says no lactose, but it sure tastes like it. Super tasty, wow. dzudohonor (335) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2017
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 (2935) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2017
UT090917 backlog. On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza 2017, London. Nose is Chocolate. Coffee, dark chocolate. Medium bittersweet. Long roasty medium bitter. Full body, oily, nearly flat carb. 758516 harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 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.
