AleSmith Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

AleSmith Brewing Company - AleSmith Speedway Stout, poured into a goblet.

Look - Pours dark oil black but not the absolute thickest I have seen, which doesn't really matter but is an element of look I felt I would mention. Nice soapy mocha head that sticks around for a bit. Tons of glorious chunky lacing.

Smell - Cola, rich chocolate, roasted coffee, barley, and a touch of piney hops.

Taste - Rich roasted coffee and a wave of velvety chocolate that is absolutely decadent. Alcohol taste is apparent.

Mouthfeel - Packs a punch! Hearty and heavy, throat and tummy hot from the 12% alcohol. All told it is still quite drinkable . I had no problem putting this one down (my gullet).

Overall - Let some of this warm! Hell this would age nicely as well. I see this particular brew all over, snag it once and give it a shot, I don't think you will regret it if you are into this style. Cheers!

Not a bad beer overall, seems a bit over rated. I would agree with beer bros rating on it more so. Doesnt have the strong coffee taste I expected and is a little more bitter than I would like. A little surprised on the lack of head with the poor as well.
