750 ml bottle served in a unbranded snifter during a little Local Option bottle share. Shared by stxSS07, thanks Matt!
A: Pours a dark black color with a tan head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin ring that leaves some splotches of lace down the edges of the glass.
S: There's a lot of barrel on the nose mixed with a heavy dose of coffee. Oaky and sweet bourbon mix with crushed coffee grounds. Definitely that earthy and slightly fruity Kopi aroma.
T: The coffee bean aroma is much more apparent on the taste. Very earthy and gritty with a mild espresso to it. Nice roasted malt presence with some underlying notes of chocolate and oak barrel. The bourbon is a little more noticeable on the palate here as it is a touch hot.
M: Medium to heavy bodied with a medium carbonation level. Nice and smooth on the finish.
O: Great take on regular Speedway. The barrel adds a nice character, although I'm still not sold on the Kopi coffee variations. A little to earthy and fruity for me.
