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.

2016 vintage. Poured into Aslin anniversary glass and allowed to warm.

L: 1F tan head with modest retention. Leaves a cap and ring, but little lacing. Beer is dark black.

S: Lots of roasted coffee and roasted grains and malts. Appears pretty basic, but good. I like that.

T: Bold coffee, slightly bitter, with roasted grains and malts and some unsweetened chocolate. Almost no evidence of the alcohol, which is mighty impressive at this ABV. Slight warming on finish. Again, pretty basic, but tastes really good.

F: Medium to full body, light carbonation. Pretty drinkable for what it is. Nice creamy mouthfeel, but not a sipper. Superb construction and balance.

O: As good as a mass-market coffee stout as you're going to find.
