2013 Bottle from trade. Stoked to get to try this one. Pours pitch black and thick looking with a dark brown and super creamy head like you would see on an espresso. Aroma is big chocolate syrup notes, lots of vanilla, some rich earthy coffee (though subdued), bourbon, wood, some roasted grains, tobacco, more vanilla. Flavor is up front roast, barely any coffee, bourbon, with a beautifully long sweet vanilla finish. There is some oak and wood here that lingers on the tongue with some vanilla and anise. Body isn't as thick as other Speedway variants I have had, but certainly not light bodied either. Low to medium carbonation. This is a great beer but doesn't live up to my lofty expectations. I really don't get much coffee from this one. Looking forward to trying the regular Kopi version. With that said, worth trying if you can get it.
