Bottled Jul 2014, opened Dec 2014.

A - Surprisingly tall head pours about 2 fingers high - dark tan with nice retention and lace. Deep midnight brown body with virtually no highlights.

S - Benefits greatly from warming a bit. Anise, malted milk balls, plum, milk chocolate, and medium roast coffee.

T - Delicious, sharp, dark roasted coffee with dark chocolate, molasses, and caramelized barley. Dry latte, caramel, oak, and burnt toast through the finish.

M - Medium-full body. Mildly slick with a creamy finish.

O - Well framed and well balanced dark-roasted coffee flavor.

This may be the best speedway variation I have ever tried. Chris from Belmont Station was kind enough to bring several coffee variations, as well as the bourbon barrel aged version. Everything was delicious and amazing, but this beer seemed to have a light creamy flavor profile that the others lacked.

This is definitely right up there with some of the very best coffee imperial stouts I've ever tried. Very, very impressive.
