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.

Slick black pour, with a thin tan head. Nose is more roasted malt than coffee, fairly rich, but a bit more toned down than I was expecting. Coffee comes through in the taste more, along with a bit of chocolate and some tobacco. The malts are well expressed in the taste as well; rich, lingering on burnt, but not overly bitter.

one of my favorite coffee stouts here.. had a draft pour.. nice black color with mocha head... smells of nice strong coffee.. taste follows the nose.. i love the not too sweet and just straight coffee flavor here. id like a little thicker mouthfeel but its an awesome brew
