Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

Speedway Imperial Stout
12% Abv.
750ml bottle into Allagash Snifter

Appearance= Initial pour into snifter yields a mild 2 finger brown head. Good clinginess on the sides of the glass as the beer goes down.

Smell= Wow, instantly after I pop the cap, coffee, choco awesomeness! The smell almost floats to your nose!

Taste= Really good. Coffee and a fat red fruit of some kind?? Chocolate

Mouthfeel= Awesome Mouthfeel. Thick and delicious.

Drinkability= Abc @ 12% is really not noticeable. Taste is awesome. I could drink this all day. In fact, it was my breakfast. Don't judge me.
