AleSmith Brewing Co Speedway Stout Variant #2: Mostra Coffee & Coconut
What the brewers say
"This special edition of AleSmith’s signature imperial stout showcases unparalleled hints of rich chocolate, coconut, dark fruit and creamy sweetness, all interlaced with intoxicating whispers of Mostra Coffee – bestowing local artisanal flair suited to an imperial stout of this caliber."
What our panel thought
“Black pour with ruby highlights and a firm tan head. Reserved coffee-forward nose with some lingering dark fruit notes. Soft and pillow-top malt profile with notes of berry-forward coffee, light coconut, and chocolate. Coffee-like bitterness throughout the sip. Sweet and roasty finish with soft coconut notes.”
What our editors thought
“Vegetal coffee on the nose makes it hard to get into. On the sip, dry and underwhelming.”
