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!

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing, on to the beer:

Black colored, topped with an inch of beige head, and lingering with a lot of good lace. The aroma could be described in one word, though I like to describe a few things about it. The aroma is super! There's an insane amount of coffee and mocha. It smells like a fresh cup of coffee. Not surprisingly, it tastes accordingly like the aroma. Indeed, it is a mocha machine. The coffee also brings a pleasant smokiness which adds another layer of goodness to this beer. The alcohol, at 9.2%, is hidden very well, and is a full bodied beer which feels like crude going down.

Masterpiece! Encore! Encore!

A: pours a slick black with mocha foam and intense carbonation that sheets like cray

A: portola acidity roast mocha frap meets bakers chocolate.

T: dry coffee with a milk chocolate char to it.

M: light and classic porter wash to it with that deep coffee dryness

D: exceptionally drinkable and the abv is masked very well. Reminds me of the love child of bbxxiii and bcbcs
