This is the first time AleSmith has bottled this ever-popular variation of Speedway Stout. We began brewing Vietnamese Speedway in 2012 when one of our brewers had the idea to add this blend of four Vietnamese coffees, known in Vietnam as cà phê sữa đá, to our popular imperial stout. The result was an instant hit! 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.
If one Speedway wasn’t enough, our next batch of Barrel Aged Speedway Stout is ready as well! We’ve matured our Russian Imperial Stout in premium bourbon barrels for one year to create the perfect blend of flavors. Notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon add another level of complexity to this beer’s already massive flavor profile of chocolate, Ryan Bros. Coffee, and roasted barley.
Starting August 5th at 10:00am, you will be able to purchase up to four (4) bottles of Vietnamese Speedway Stout and up to six (6) bottles of Barrel Aged Speedway Stout. Please note, your name will be registered once you place your order (you will need to use your name for each bottle). Any duplicate sales to the same name will be voided! We want to make this as fair as possible and get as many bottles into our wonderful customer’s hands!
