Pours dark brown with a nice frothy two-finger khaki head. There was an overwhelming dose of coffee, oak, and dark chocolate in the nose. Comes down so easy in the flavors along with that delicious Vietnamese coffee, however, it was not as bold as it was in the aromatics. Lots of roasted oak and dark chocolate. Thick mouthfeel with a slightly bitter back finish. Well put together!

Appearance: Murky, mysterious and dark, the liquid supports a thick tan head; a boatload of dots spot the side of the chalice

Smell: Dark chocolate and coffee tones, supported by roast, Saigon cinnamon, caramel and vanilla

Taste: Roast and dark chocolate, up front, with the coffee, Saigon cinnamon and caramel building; after the swallow, the vanilla and a hint of hazelnut arrives; the finish is rich and balanced

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; slight warmth in the gullet

Overall: Another great Speedway variant; this one is very reminiscent of a Vietnamese coffee

Thanks, snakeey11, for the opportunity
