Big thanks to @rjmusquiz for this awesome extra. This is my first Beachwood offering, I dig the label art. This pours pitch black with heavy visual weight. Tan head form and subsides quickly with minimal lace present. The nose features rich dark chocolate and heavy campfire smoke to back it up. I've had my fair share of smoked beers and I think the risk with the style is over doing the smoke. The smell implies that the roasted malts sufficiently support the level of smoke to make for a nice balance. Also getting hints of cream and vanilla and some notes of wood. The taste is layered and quite tasty. Heavy chocolate, roast, coffee up front followed by smoke and wood. Again, the balance is nice and the smoke is present without overpowering the beer. Mouthfeel is silky and smooth with low carbonation. Overall, I think this is a very well done smoked stout. I was pleasantly surprised by this offering and can't wait to try more Beachwood offerings!

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours opaque black with a thin light brown head that dissipates to a very thin film and light ring around the glass, leaving light slippery lacing. Aroma of sweet, dark toasted malt, chocolate and a hint of vanilla, very faint smoke. Flavor of lightly smoked and toasted dark malt, chocolate, hints of coffee. Finishes with pleasant light smoke, dark malt and a light hop bitterness. Lingering, nice wood fire smoke taste. Medium bodied with light oatmeal creaminess. A low key, but very nicely balanced smoked stout. The smoke is lightly done, but evident, especially in the finish. The malt body is quite pleasant with evidence of oatmeal body. Nothing really jumps out with this, but it is a quite nice toasty, lightly smoky, malty stout. I liked it quite a bit and will seek out other brews from this brewery.
