There is a plethora of barrel-aged versions of Speedway Stout. So which one do I have? It is a 330 ml bottle, and the ABV is 13.0%, not 12.0% like most of them. It is a 2019 vintage Barrel Aged Reserve in the AleSmith Anvil & Stave Barrel Series. The main label reads “Barrel-Aged Speedway Stout, Imperial stout with coffee aged in bourbon barrels”. The rear label gives no information about which coffee is used, except that it is “locally sourced artisanal coffee”. There is otherwise no ingredients list. The bar code is 812465001559.
If I had to guess, you probably have the normal Bourbon Barrel Aged Speedway, but I’m definitely not any kind of expert.
I guess you are right. The ABV got me confused, as only a few of the special versions are listed as 13%, while the “normal” version is listed as 12% (also at the brewery website). But I suppose the ABV may vary from one batch to another.
Any other sugestions to this question ?
It is the Bourbon BA version.
