In Mokasida Speedway Stout, Alesmith infuses their GABF award-winning base with the lemony-berry-floral subtleties of rare Ethiopian coffee beans. This 12% ABV dark gem boasts a 4.25 on Untappd out of more than 11,000 ratings -- here’s what the community has to say:
“Started off as an amazing imperial stout, and the coffee makes it even better.” -- UT user @rechlin
“This takes base SS to another level. Full bodied. Wow!” -- BA user @mothman
“Genius beer, smooth feel and sweet coffee. Could have this everyday and be happy.” -- BA user @absolut
“Tropical and rum spice coffee. Very interesting. Champions!” -- UT user @winedonk
With all this community acclaim, it’s no wonder Mokasida is lauded as trade bait gold. Alesmith has proven their Coffee Stout skills in the Vietnamese Coffee version of Speedway Stout, but Mokasida takes a step further into coffee nerd territory -- it showcases the delicately bright blueberry-lemon character of highly regarded Ethiopian Sidamo beans. When paired with the chocolatey roast profile of the base beer, these bright notes create a complex and unique Stout that you’d be hard-pressed to find outside the brewery’s San Diego taproom.
Savor a pour to reveal depths of flavor and become a Mokasida believa too: rich medium-roast coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, blueberry, cocoa, vanilla, a touch of herbal licorice and charred woodiness come together in delicious harmony to create this special variant of Speedway Stout.
