Yesterday’s Mystery Beer is based on a popular Imperial Stout from a San Diego Brewery, but with a few additions. Alesmith Brewing took their beloved Speedway Stout, combined it with some coconut, vanilla a special coffee, and created this 2015 Special Release of Hawaiian Speedway Stout!
From the Brewery:
We often use Speedway Stout as a jet-black canvas for homages to things we hold dear, whether it’s artisan coffee, a favorite edible or sumptuous flavor combination. The most recent variation of our celebrated imperial stout honors the culinary character of the Hawaiian Islands by combining the lush sweetness of coconut with vanilla and Ka’u coffee. Named after the region of Hawaii from which it hails, Ka’u is produced from some of the world’s rarest coffee beans. Slow-grown beneficiaries of nutrient-rich volcanic soil and idyllic climate, Ka’u offers nuances of caramel and hazelnut plus a soft floral character, all of which marry seamlessly with natural sweetness from the vanilla and coconut as well as Speedway Stout’s inherently rich, chocolaty character. Say aloha to something truly exceptional and evocative of its namesake isles.
Come and enjoy this limited release, 12% abv, flavor loaded, Imperial Stout before it leaves our taps!
