On tap @ the source for Grand Pre during SDBW.

A: Pours black with thin mocha head which fades quickly to the rim leaving spotty lace.

N: Cardamon spice dominates, mildly earthy and faint roasted coffee.

T: Follows nose with a nice overall balance of flavors, none being overbearing.

M: Full body and semi-moderate carbonation. Spiced coffee finish.

O: Tied for third place in Lap 2. Just couldn't get past the cardamon.

On tap at AleSmith Observation Room during the 2015 Speedway Grand Prix. 11/12/15.

Little deviation from the original Speedway in this variant. Moderate coffee presence.
