Was fortunate to have had this brew a few times prior but never added a review, so popped a 2013 tonight (bottled 8/5/2013), enjoyed from a alesmith snifter.

Brew pours a silky sleek black with a nice dark tan head that mostly dissolves and leaves spotty lace.
Nose is simply heaven. Deep rich mocha. Chocolate happiness.
Taste to match. The perfect balance of chocolate, coffee and a glazing of roastiness over the top. Everything is in the right place.
Beer is rich and thick and a meal in a glass, but it is just a taste nester. Happy to be soloing this bottle.
Overall, my favorite variant of the speedway clan. The barrel aged and kopis are great too, but this one is just magic in a glass, the perfect marriage of beer and coffee.

Bottle poured into snifter; midest carbonation with little head. Coffee-Coffee-Coffee with malts. Full body that clings to palate! Chocolate is balanced in there with the coffee and is rich flavored. I appreciate CC and Terrapin brews but this was too sweet .
