4.85/5 rDev +7.1%
On draft at City Beer Store in San Francisco
A: Pours dark as night with a nice mocha head, laces nicely
S: Dark chocolate and coffee heaven, some spice notes maybe cinnamon
T: Delicious chocolate and coffee, a little vanilla, alcohol comes out a little as it warms but overall well hidden, a little cinnamon cayenne pepper spice note on the finish
M: Heavier body but velvety smooth, low carbonation
O: Outstanding! Very happy to have had the chance to try this one.

Rich freshly ground medium roast coffee beans - a lot of lighter berry, toastier roast, bitter dry chocolate, slightly vegetal, sweet milk chocolate and vanilla. Taste is full and sweeter than expected, a lot of mocha, milk chocolate. Drier bitter chocolate finish.
Another great variant but I did prefer the JBM and Kopi to this.

Best Speedway Variant so far!
A - Jet black pour with creamy thick head that slowly dissapates.
S - Fudge brownie, cocoa nibs, slight coffee, toffee, roasted malts.
T - Fantastic! Everything blends perfectly. Coffee mixes well with the chocolate and alcohol is very hidden... sneaky sneaky.
M - Slightly overcarbonated, but it was shipped from San Diego.. so I'll let it slide.
O - A bit better than Jamaica Blue in my opinion. Amazing dessert beer that would also pair with stu, roasted meats all the way to cheesecake. Pure deliciousness.

Poured into a snifter, 50 degrees. As is, creamy nose, milk stout like smell. Taste was coffee infused, high bitterness. Light tan head that dissipates quickly. As the beer warms the nose and taste switch. Nose became slightly boozy, yet the taste became smooth and creamy. Great till the last drop, my only regret is that I only had one
