Another great black pour at the FW Invitational. Thin dark brown head, ultra black SRM infinity type of abyss color and thickness wise.

Aroma, wow, just the awesomeness of the coffee from the regular speedway, but with the most delicate addition of bourbon. Really spot on, didn't think this could be improved, but hot damn if they didn't actually improve on it.

Taste, rich, luxurious, really coats the mouthfeel with a syrup like consistency, but with gobs of coffee flavor all over it. Chocolate and bourbon to a lesser extent. Like regular speedway, this hides the alcohol extremely well, and is never a chore to drink, even though it is double digit abv. I get a little more nuttiness from this one. They really applied the fine touches here, the oak, bourbon and vanilla are mere additions, the heavily roasted coffee/base malts are still prominent and not overshadowed.

One of the few beers I went back for a second pour of. Excellent stuff that flew under the radar a bit at the fest.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at the brewery.

A: Impenetrable brown, darkish film of brown head which recedes to a ring and some swirls layered on the surface of the beer. The head is very nice looking, like espresso.

S: Well balanced bourbon and vanilla and all the great coffee and dark chocolate of regular Speedway.

T: Sweet bourbon and oak, medium-dark roast coffee, dark chocolate. Alcohol has a little burn and is more prominent than ideal. Still delicious, though.

M: Medium carbonation and full body. The carbonation adds a velvet smooth mouthfeel to the full body. Leaves a little sticky residue on your lips.

O: A nice mix between regular and BA Speedway, a toned down version thereof. The full BA version had more barrel presence, which is a decided improvement, but this is still excellent.

Serving type: on-tap
