AleSmith to Bottle Vietnamese Coffee Speedway Stout
Finally! One of the most popular Speedway Stout variants is finally coming to bottles, as AleSmith Brewing Company announced the packaging of Vietnamese Coffee Speedway Stout this week. An imperial stout brewed with a blend of Vietnamese coffees, this is the latest Speedway to hit bottles following the release of both regular and barrel-aged Kopi Luwak.
“One of our brewers had the idea to add this blend of four Vietnamese coffees, known in Vietnam as Cà Phê Sūa dá, 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 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.”
Official release info is still pending from the brewery. Perhaps they won’t be using the Brown Paper Tickets system everyone is so fond of (::winces::), but we’ll have to wait and see for now.
