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.

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.
