look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 ml into a GI snifter.

A- pours black with a 2 finger dark tan head. Huge blotches and trails of lacing cover the glass.

S- maple syrup, roast, coffee, molasses, light pine

T- roasted malts, chocolate, maple syrup, molasses, bitter coffee, and some pine.

M- full body and medium carbonation. Nice velvety, creamy feel.

O- very good coffee stout. Better than regular Speedway and I think it's close with Beer Geek Brunch Weasel.

Serving type: bottle

Black and thick as hell. It had a surprisingly aggressive head from a rather gentle pour. It also left quite a bit of cascading brown lace.

The nose is all coffee. Earthy with some light berry. I also pick up a little root beer and chocolate.

The coffee dominates the flavor to the point if barely picking up any other subtle flavors. Some may consider it a downside, but I enjoy it very much. Is a fresh coffee flavor that's earthy, slightly acidic, with some subtle chocolate in the tail end.

Mouthfeel is thick and heavy. The carbonation it just a bit too high as I would have liked it a but more creamy, but I'm knit picking at this point.

I loved this stout and, while I don't have the opportunity if a side by side comparison, found it every bit as enjoyable than regular speedway, if not more.
