4.33/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottled August 2013.

Appearance: Pours a viscous looking black color,with a solid 3/4" tan head, which has good retention and lacing. Nice start.

Smell: Smells of dank coffee, semi sweet dark chocolate, and vanilla. Really not quite as much dank coffee on the nose as I had anticipated. More sweetness than I was expecting.

Taste: Like the smell, coffee bitterness up front, with more prevalent dark chocolate and vanilla sweetness. Warming alcohol bite on the end.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is full, with a great level of fine carbonation. Excellent. It drinks right up to its ABV. Overall a nice stout. Was kind of expecting the coffee to be a bit danker and in my face, with a touch less sweetness. As it was though, still very nice and an improvement over the base beer.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

At the taproom pours a jet black with tan head

Nose: tootsie roll chocolate, coffee, light florals

Taste: so rich and vibrant an delicious. lush vanilla candy chews, toasted coconut, light roast coffee, milk chocolate/rich caramel chew, floral hoppy twang, finishes with caramel and a roasty twang, lingering (pleasant) booziness

Feel- rich yet not too viscous, lightly boozy, lush, roasty, candy-like

Wow. Incredible. One of the best of many Speedways

Serving type: on-tap
