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!

Pitch black color with a nice 3 finger tan foamy head with small tight bubbles and excellent retention. The smell is roasted coffee malt and chocolate. Smells wonderful. The taste is amazing. Roasted coffee and chocolate, smooth and creamy, an absolutely amazing flavor. The taste is pure perfection.

This beer is smooth, creamy, silky, full bodied, and wonderful in every way. The feel on this is as perfect as the taste is. Absolutely perfect carbonation. Alesmith Speedway Stout is insanely drinkable. The 12% abv is very well hidden. I only wish this was available in Minnesota, but as long as I can continue to order this online, I will be happy.
