Tasting Notes: Pours pitch black with a fluffy, khaki-colored head. Incredible lacing for a high-alcohol beer. Dark chocolate and loads of coffee on the nose with a bit of caramel to complete the aroma. Flavor follows scent, with a bold mix of coffee, dried cherries and bourbon. Sweet vanilla flavors rise as the beer warms. Thick, milky mouthfeel that's well-balanced.

What's on the bottle...

Imperial stout brewed with Ryan Bros. coffee beans. Speedway Stout is a thick, rich brew, perfect for those who demand high performance from their beer. Deep and dark, it's full of toasty, roasty, chocolatey flavors, as any good stout ale should be. We brew it using precisely conditioned water, our championship yeast, the freshest hops and premium grains such as chocolate and black patent malts and roasted barley. But the real secret is the beans: pounds and pounds of coffee beans added to the brew, yielding even more levels of complexity and flavor. Such a fine brew demands the finest coffee so we chose premium microroast coffee beans from San Diego's own Ryan Bros. For a flavor sensation that can't be beat, look to the Speedway to find a real winner. This limited edition formula will race off the shelves, so try it today or you'll be left in the dust!

Brewer's Choice and People's Choice 2002 San Diego Real Ale Festival. 12% alcohol by volume. Brewed and bottled by AleSmith Brewing Co., San Diego, CA.

Warning: Beer of the month clubs and mass producers promise "craft" beer…deliver less-than-stellar drinking experience.

Sadly, it's true…
98% of breweries in America are now labeled as "craft beer" producers, a term that's quickly losing its meaning. But most are still hiding dull, lifeless beer behind clever names and fancy labels.
