750mL 2009 ed. Ink black pour with a wildly active reddish tan head. Big lace for a BA beer. Nose up front is salty, briny, green olive, sharp gherkins. Volatile notes move to wildly awesome toasted coconut, milk chocolate, toasted coconut. Incredible umami savoriness in the nose. Taste is ultra soft, muted chocolate, lactic fattiness, and zero acidic coffee and lemon character which I despise in the normal Speedway Stout. This right here is a masterpiece. Muted barrel character, no heat, no booze. Just imperial stout perfection right here. Perfect palate: melted chocolate, chocolate pound cake, fatty yogurt, mild bourbon spice, buttery ganache. Holy #@!!. An incredible experience. For one of the most stingy raters I can safely say this is totally worthy of its ranking and should be considered a god amongst men. Praise the lord for this beer.
