An awesome beer. Smoked stout done incredibly well. Smoke blends perfectly with chocolately, coffee flavors expected in a stout. Granted, I like smoked beers...this was incredible.

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!

I'm a sucker for lactose. Silky, not cloyingly sweet, incredibly rich.
