Speedway Stout - Vietnamese CoffeeSpeedway Stout - Vietnamese Coffee
Notes: This Vietnamese coffee version of Speedway Stout is and continues to be AleSmith's most popular variation of the ever-growing Speedway Stout collection. Since 2012 we have been adding this blend of four Vietnamese coffees, known in Vietnam as cà phê sa đá, to our popular imperial stout. The coffee beans were slowly roasted at low temperatures and then brewed by AleSmith with a traditional phin-style filter that gently percolates water through the ground coffee. The result is an intensely aromatic and bold tasting coffee that complements the notes of chocolate and roast in this massive stout.

Tasted in a 6 oz sampler glass from draft at Gold Eagle Wine and Spirits on April 3, 2021. Far too many coffee stouts are overwhelmed by the bitter taste of fresh brewed coffee. This is far more subtle and much better as a result.

On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Pitch black colour, moderate tan head. Aroma of roast malts, coffee, exotic woodwork and dark chocolate. Sweet flavour with distinct notes of coffee, vanilla and dark chocolate.

Another tasty variant of a successful beer. Gets better and better as it warms. Nice bitterness but not overpowering so it balances the alcohol and offsets sweetness so that too is not overpowering.
