As always, Speedway Stout has a gentle and smooth mouthfeel that hides perfectly the alcohol without overpowering in either sweetness or roastness. This one with more coffe than the regular one and probably better.

Dark headed deer Chase very strongly of Jamaican coffee. Good balanced but I personally prefer the regular speed waste out as it is. Either way good drinking.

8 ball black with a somehow clear red ribbon at the bottom of the glass, all under a creamy tan blanket.

Aromas of hypnotizing dark roast coffee and mocha syrup are accented by nutty milk chocolate with a touch of heat.

Taste exhibits a dryingly bitter yet nutty and earthy coffee with baker's cocoa. There's still a bit of heat, especially in the exhale, before a marzipan aftertaste comes out.

The full, round body has a firm yet mild carbonation before a powder dry finish. Excellent.

The over-under on the beer weight I hauled back from CA in three weeks of work is about 55 lbs. I’d take the over. 22 oz. foil-capped bottle brought back upon specific request of my coffee-loving wife

Black. The nose is 92% dark roast, 9% coffee. I’m an auditor by trade.

Speedway Stout – Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee: I don’t drink coffee, so the subtleties of the bean are mostly lost on my infantile palate, but this one goes in a different direction that the base beer. There’s roast, there’s chocolate, with additional dark fruit that I do not get from the original. I’m not a fan of fruit + stout, but it’s subtle enough here. Boozy on the finish. Full, thick, & despite the ABV, goes down the gullet quickly.

Easily the weakest of the Speedways I’ve had, but that’s still praiseworthy. Very good beer.

The beer pours a very nice brown tan head that takes a while to dissipate and looks like it's frothy and coffee like. The beer itself is a nice and good looking dark coffee black that reveals a bit of a thinner texture than normal due to the coffee.

The smell is good. It's predominantly coffee with a decent chocolate note from the bean type. It has a moderate roast to it that contrasts well with the sweeter chocolate note.

The taste is very good. The bean has a nice and indulgent chocolate note that mixes good with a moderate roast note and some dark chocolate notes. It's a great combination of coffee bean with the usual stout choices.

The feel is good. It has as heavy body but has a good thin and smooth note from the coffee. There is some slight bite from the carbonation and a tiny acidity.

Overall, this is a fantastic coffee stout that works well with the base stout. It's definitely worth getting and having in the colder months.
