Notes/Commercial Description:
For our first local collaboration beer of 2013, we teamed up with our good friends at Beachwood Brewing in Long Beach, CA. We've worked with these folks on a number of small batch brews, beer dinners and general shenanigans for many years and it was really exciting to sit down and work on a full scale project with them for the first time. What we ended up with is an imperial smoked stout, but of course it wasn't that simple. We smoked our own malt on the same smoker and with the same blend of three different woods that Beachwood uses for their award winning BBQ - apple, white oak and pecan. We then aged the beer on those same three types of wood. The resulting stout is hearty and wonderful, balancing the rich, meaty smokiness with the sweetness of the malt.

Fantastic, integrated smoke and complex wood.

Aroma of vanilla ( like a mild 2013 TenFidy) witch cocoa and smoke

Wonderful, and I don't usually like smoked beers. This is a cut above in complexity and mouthfeel. Not heavy on the smoke, but perfectly intertwined with its sweet and bitter malts, vanilla and dark fruits. My favorite regular RIS is Narwhal , and this has a lot in common

One year aged in cellar added a depth usually found on bourbon barrel stouts. Highly recommended if you can find or if made again.
