Rich, smooth texture. Slight but not overpowering bourbon scent and taste. Not so boozy as to take away from the stout richness. Great chocolate left on the back.

Probably my favorite the Speedway coffee variants.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with pretty good head retention and lacing. The beer looks rich and viscous, which it ain't no bad thing. On the nose, there is considerable coffee and vanilla, along with underlying dark chocolate and perhaps a hint of cinnamon. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, and while this stout is pretty sweet, the coffee flavor seems to balance and counter that sweetness somewhat. There's a mocha quality on the palate of this beer that I just love. Mouthfeel is full, soft and fairly creamy, with a very long finish. Alcohol is incredibly well integrated into the flavor profile, and so drinkability is terrific (almost too terrific, as it's hard to show restraint where this beer is concerned).

Just outstanding, and a beer I order and even make a special trip to obtain, whenever I see it on tap around Portland.
