Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

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.

On tap at Apex.

Black with a dark brown head, this looks solid. Big, creamy coffee with moderate sweetness, dark chocolate bitterness, mild hops. Heavy roast. Mildly oily, creamy, and for a first with Speedway, a little unctuous and flabby. Solid beer, though I prefer the base beer.

Poured a blackish body with one-finger tan head that died quick with bits of lace. A coffee aroma that has bits of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Easy drinking, medium to heavy bodied beer that has this dry coffee flavor that is a tad grainy but has some sweetness to it, possible chocolate sweetness, and there is a touch of balance. Not my favorite coffee stout but it's pretty good.
