4/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt and some slight cocoa and coffee aromas. Taste is the same with a nice hoppy finish. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slight crispness and a medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good stout with a nice hoppy presence.

Serving type: on-tap

3.85/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pitch black with a creamy tan head. Nice lacing.

Big roasty aroma with some resinous earthy hops. Nicely balanced.

Massively roasty with some serious bitterness. No real sweetness. A big ass, dry stout.

Medium full body with moderate carbonation. Good.

A really solid stout. The flavours are bold, dry and roasty with there being nothing special but nothing wrong either.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ and Brewing.

A: Black and opaque with a finger of beige foam.

S: Strong aroma of roasted malt with pronounced coffee. Dark chocolate blends with black strap molasses and earth. There's a faint smoke note.

T: Dark chocolate and roasted malt with a burnt note. Coffee is well integrated and there's evident molasses. Bitterness is earthy and at a moderate level. No alcohol is evident.

M: Full body with upper moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is chewy and sticky.

Overall: A well executed American Stout.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours black with a nice medium light brown head, good lace.

S: Roasted malt and dark chocolate.

T: Bitter dark chocolate dominates, but never with a burnt flavour which is good. Roasted malt with a hint of brown sugar, but overally fairly dry.

M: Almost full-bodied, very creamy and smooth, long aftertaste.

O: A very good American stout, easy drinking for its heft and full of flavour.

4.35/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Nice creamy head and coffee black appearance

S - Light on the nose, hides the alcohol well. Definitely some coffee and chocolate notes

T - Delicious coffee and chocolate notes. As mentioned, this beer hides its alcohol extremely well. A growler of this will not last long in the fridge

M - Rich and creamy with a lingering coffee taste. Definitely a lot going on, but well balanced

O - Wow! One of the best stouts I've had. Approaches, but doesn't quite equal Class V. Using that as a measuring stick, this one holds its own

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

A: The pour is dark brown in color with a fluffy off-white head.

S: Starts off with burnt sugar, licorice, and molasses. A nice coffee and roast aroma and a slight char. There's a bit of espresso and a subtle sweetness of toffee.

T: Moderately bitter with lots if roast, coffee, and espresso. Some licorice and burnt sugar with a moderate sweetness of toffee and caramel. A light earthiness is present on the back end.

M: Medium in body with a smooth carbonation.

O: Probably my favorite of the beers available on the opening day.
