On tap @Woodshop, limited notes.
Basically similar to speedway stout, but w/better coffee. Thick and roasty. The thing about this amazing version of an already amazing beer is that coffee completely dominates, even more than regular speedway, which I didn't know was possible. Boozy and roasty presence is cut down by coffee and stout perfection. Maybe the best stout I've ever had, it's tough.
Now I know that when they refer to this beer as "The Shit" it's not just referring to the source of the coffee beans.

Bottle from trade. No bottle date. Big thanks to Richard for this one. Pours pitch black like Speedway should, with a big brown creamy head. Aroma of chocolate and earthy espresso, no super acidic coffee smell, roast. Flavor is some earthy coffee, a bit of metallic flavors, roast, light chocolate. What I do like about this variant is the nutty coffee aftertaste left on the palate. Seems slightly thinner than other Speedway variants, medium carbonation. I am very much not impressed with this. Lacking in flavor and body, a little metallic. Disappointing. Glad to have tried it, of course.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of deep roasted barley malt with notes of dry coffee also dominating. Taste is a mix between some deep dry roasted malt notes with bitter and dry coffee notes which almost veers into astringency territory. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good but almost too extreme on the coffee side which diminish the drinkability.
