Alesmith Speedway Stout
From the Brewer
"Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!"
A huge imperial stout with the addition of coffee. Try your favorite local, very recently roasted coffees - just grind it very coarsely so you can rack from the fermenter cleanly.
