Bottle shared at home, kind courtesy of Maakun. Black with thin light tan head. Loads of deep roasted chocolate malts, coconut, vanilla, licorice, tiramisu, brownies, surprisingly little coffee at first. Later some pronounced coffee berries and hazlenutty coffee notes rise up. Velvety smooth speedway style supple full body, amazing. Massive sweet and mild bitterness. Soft carbonation. Great mouthfeel, lovely aromas. Very nice!!

Bottle shared. Black with light brown head. Huge dark chocolate, sweet vanilla bourbon, roast, sweet coffee, lots of toffee, fudge, brownies, some coconut, some cinnamon and other spices, soft alcohol. Quite sweet and under medium bodied. Almost full bodied with soft carbonation but it's not super thick which makes it huge drinkeable. Very very nice beer.

Bottle at tasting. Black pour. Aroma of delicious bourbon vanilla, milk chocolate, creamy coffee and soft red fruit. Taste has creamy vanilla, soft bourbon booze, smooth chocolate, coffee, red fruit and creamy roasted malt. Sticky mouthfeel, really long delicious finish. This is how a bourbon ba coffee ris should be. Extreme flavors, but with great balance. Fantastic.

Pours black, Small to OK , bit darker white head. Smell is intense, grainy bourbon. Taste is intense, very silky ( this also describes the MF , which is paired by perfect and low carbo ) . Bit bitter, coffee notes, but mostely intense bourbon. Mild booze. very nice beer, but not the best speedway offering so far.

Bottle courtesy oif rlgk. Pours oily pitch black with a small creamy dark mocha head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, toasted coconut, dried bilberries, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is soft, viscous, oily, round, roasted astringent, tiny boozy and full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, banana bread, chocolate chip cookie dough, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, dried bilberries and cherries, moist soil, toasted coconut and bourbon alcohol. I love the Vietnamese Speedway Stout and that is just that with another great AleSmith BA treatment. Great stuff!

Bottle:(many thanks to Phaleslu) Pours black with an oily, dark tan head. Aroma is cocoa, molasses, coffee. Taste is rich...smooth coffee malt, vanilla, chocolate malt..... Nicely moderated bourbon and wood notes. Wow....absolutely exceptional.... One of those that makes you sad when you realize the bottle is empty.

Bottle (huge thanks to Phaleslu for sharing). Sugar, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, malt and hay aroma. Black-brown with nice tan head. Sweet creamy vaniilla, mocha coffee, malt, moderately strong bourbon, and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Spectacular balance.
