On Tap at Alesmith Brewery for BA Vietnamese coffee speedway stout
picked up a few bottle and enjoyed a lovely taster.

A. poured black with little to no head, if so almond in color which dissipated quick.
S. Dark rich coffee, big vanilla and bourbon, a small hint of dark fruits possibly figs
T. Incredibly well balance, the taste of bourbon was almost perfect, the coffee was rich and creamy similar to any exceptional vietnamese coffee. And a lovely vanilla present throughout the palate. the beer is calculated at 12% ABV which give a soft burn at the back end but the taste of booze was barely present.
M medium to full body more on the full side, velvet and slight creamy

Overall - Let say I had pick up BLACK Tuesday the following day and had a nice taste to end my weekend. Both amazing beer that put up a fight, and personally BA Viet coffee speedway stout was more memorable.
