Had this on tap during the Speedway craziness going on. Unfortunately walked in unknowingly that they had 12 Speedway varieties on tap. Because I didn’t pre register, was only allowed to have regular or the new "Hammerhead" with no explanation as to wtf Hammerhead was. Once I took a sip, it was obvious to me it must be some coffee. Also I would like to note that I was very sad I could not try the others :-( Pours pitch black with a small mocha head on top, looking super creamy. Aroma of huge acidic earthy coffe, a hint of chocolate, and just more huge coffee and espresso. Flavor follows with massive espresso, earthy and spicy, lightly acidic, with some hints of chocolate fudge in the background. Slight warming alcohol and lingering espresso. This really highlights the huge amounts of coffee here. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Honestly, this blew me away. One of the best coffee stouts I have ever had.
