2015 Specialty Release
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 exception-
al and evocative of its namesake isles.
