look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
750ml bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary glass.
A - Pours with a pitch black color and a frothy head of coffee milkshake consistency and appearance, 3 fingers tall. Lots of frothy, webby lacing is left on the glass after the head finally fades away after several minutes.
S - Coffee, mocha, dark chocolate. Very creamy, cocoa powder, a bit of astringency and some cherry-like fruitiness.
T - Super chocolately, cocoa powder, and tons of coffee flavor. Lite berry flavor comes on towards the swallow and lingers a bit. There is a bit of a drying feeling on each sip...sorta makes me think of licking cocoa powder off the back of a spoon...get a great cocoa flavor, but has that powdery feel on the tongue...just a bit.
M - Super smooth, creamy, a bit frothy with a light astringency. Thick coffee bitterness, heavy roasty qualities. Body is thick, smooth and super creamy.
O - Very enjoyable imperial stout...haven't had a bad variation of Speedway yet, and this one doesn't disappoint either. More of a chocolately charcter overall than I was expecting...figured the coffee would stand out more so. Feel is outstanding with a big creamy and frothy texture. Very enjoyable - another one to seek out for a second tasting.
