4.13/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
750ml brown glass bottle with papered over pressure cap served into an EKU 28 stem-snifter in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are through the roof.
Served a bit warmer than refrigerator cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.
A: Pours a beautiful rich tan colour head of one finger, great thickness, impeccable cream, and amazing retention for the high ABV. Fantastic lacing. Body colour is a solid jet black. Gorgeous.
Sm: Heavy bourbon and wood, caramel, dark malts, cream, oak, and chocolate. A subtle understated delightful moderate strength aroma.
T: Chocolate, dark malts, caramel, bourbon, oak, and a bit of faded coffee. Beautifully balanced and built. Not as complex as it could be, but it's fucking tasty. Lacks the coffee flavour of the regular Speedway Stout.
Mf: Divine. Incredibly smooth and creamy, with perfect wetness. Complements the flavour profile masterfully. Silky. Perfect carbonation. Wonderfully soft.
Dr: Obscenely drinkable for 12%. I could down this all night. An incredible offering, but it could use more complexity in the flavour. Hides its ABV absurdly well.

Pours black with brown highlights in the light, no head/lacing.
Smells decadent and strong. Fudge, coffee, raisin, cinammon.
Taste is dark fudge with hints of chocolate and oak.
Mouthfeel is superb, ABV controlled - almost negligible.
A dessert beer with decent complexity.
