I received this bottle from Julian himself the other day after it was bottled a day previously.

A - Dark dark porter for sure. slightly darker than tan head, which fell quickly (I think it was my glass)

S- I would say I thought this was a cold brew coffee with chocolate. The aroma profile is outstanding.

T- Prior to drinking Mocha Machine, my favorite coffee beer was Alesmith Speedway Stout, but damn Beachwood is crushing it. 9.2% alcohol is masked very well, and the coffee and chocolate find a beautiful balance.

M- Texturally pleasing, this brew doesnt try to be a big ol fat viscous one. it falls in perfectly textured for an imperial porter and destroys.

Way to go Beachwood, Keep it rockin!

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 for Beachwood L.B.'s 3rd Anniversary event.

A: Pours black with a half-inch thick dark tan head with fades slowly and yields some oily spots of lace.

N: Nutty, earthy, roasty, dark chocolate, coffee.

T: Roasted coffee, earthy softness, dark chocolate kisses.

M: Full body and medium carbonation. Rich, roasted coffee and bitter chocolate finish.

O: Wonderful. Looking forward to getting bottles.
