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.

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.

Pours a very dark brown and opaque. Light taupe head that dissipates pretty quickly. Dark roast coffee, smoke, and a little cherry on the nose. Mouthfeel is creamy, viscous, and inviting. Coffee bean coated in thick milk chocolate flavor. My Lord how fun this this one? Magnificent!

Finally cracked open a bottle I had been saving for awhile now.

Some of the coffee flavored had faded but I was still able to pick it up.

The smell is amazing and I wish this was more available.

Overall I was very pleased with this beer! Tastes just like a Viet Coffee!
