Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Had on tap at Lake and Irving. L: A pitch black pour supports a long lasting, tight, finely bubbled light tan foam cap that clings to the side of the glass.

S: Rich coffee aromas dominate with traces of bourbon, hints of chocolate, vanilla and rich malts.

T: This is a much more luscious drink than the regular Speedway Stout. Layers of Vietnamese coffee, Bourbon, oak, alcohol and malt flavors all play very well together.

F: It has an incredibly creamy texture. There is alcohol warming but it is mild. The carbonation is very soft.

O: This is an extraordinary beer with nothing harsh or overstated.
