I LOVE marzipan - when I was growing up in Gloucestershire, I used to slice off the marzipan from our Christmas cake and just eat that. The notion of a marzipan stout - another of the many Speedway Stout variations - worried me, but true to AleSmith form, they delivered. The nose was totally marzipan with a rich creamy body, giving smooth, sweet almond flavours accompanied by a touch of coconut and lovely coffee notes which came from the Vietnamese Expresso that AleSmith used in this stout. Think of Battenburg Cake and your favourite Costa Coffee French-press in a glass and you have Marzipan Speedway Stout. Fantastic!
