AleSmith 2014 Reserve Series Release Party: Vietnamese Speedway & Barrel Aged Old Numbskull


Vietnamese Speedway Stout is back in bottles! Paired up with Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Numbskull, these two specialty brews make up the next release as part of AleSmith Brewing Company’s continuing 2014 Reserve Series.

This Vietnamese coffee version of Speedway Stout is and continues to be AleSmith’s most popular variation of the ever-growing Speedway Stout collection. Since 2012 we have been adding this blend of four Vietnamese coffees, known in Vietnam as cà phê sữa đá, to our popular imperial stout. The coffee beans were slowly roasted at low temperatures and then brewed by AleSmith with a traditional phin-style filter that gently percolates water through the ground coffee. The result is an intensely aromatic and bold tasting coffee that complements the notes of chocolate and roast in this massive stout.

Our American Barleywine Ale, Old Numbskull, has once again been aging in premium Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels for the past year, developing its rich and intense flavor profile. Barrel Aged Old Numbskull is an amazingly complex beer that balances the caramel and toasted malt character of Old Numbskull with notes of vanilla, oak, and bourbon from the barrel aging process.

Bottles go on sale Monday, July 21st at 11am.
