I have a confession to make... I honestly used to treat Beachwood as a great guest tap house, and thought of their house beers as a cute joke...

But after trying this, I'm not laughing anymore. I used to not care for porters... Until I had this.

A: Pours a beautiful chocolate brown, with about half an inch of head. Beautiful!

S: Better than any Starbucks mocha I've ever had! Amazing!

T: Coffee, Chocolate, Roasty, with a hint of Boozy... Again, better than anything Starbucks could even dream of... And I LOVE their mochas.

M: Smooth, medium carbonation. Like a chocolately roasty mocha... But better!

O: This beer made me take Beachwood seriously... And I'm damn glad I did! Nobody's laughing now! They can give the best a run for their money! Look out Pliny, Beachwood is on the prowl!

I really enjoyed this one (but to be fair I've been on a real coffee stout kick lately). It pours a deep brown/black with a tan/brown head. The nose is just fantastic; I had to just sit and smell it for a few minutes before I even tasted it. Just has that great roasted bean scent and the mocha is certainly present (as the name suggests). It drinks a bit bitter like black coffee but it actually finishes rather smooth. There is some booziness present on the finish but generally the high alc content is masked very well. Definitely worth a try for any fans of porters or coffee-based drinks.

Serving type: growler
