Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
For our first local collaboration beer of 2013, we teamed up with our good friends at Beachwood Brewing in Long Beach, CA. We've worked with these folks on a number of small batch brews, beer dinners and general shenanigans for many years and it was really exciting to sit down and work on a full scale project with them for the first time. What we ended up with is an imperial smoked stout, but of course it wasn't that simple. We smoked our own malt on the same smoker and with the same blend of three different woods that Beachwood uses for their award winning BBQ - apple, white oak and pecan. We then aged the beer on those same three types of wood. The resulting stout is hearty and wonderful, balancing the rich, meaty smokiness with the sweetness of the malt.

4.23/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle poured into a teku
Bottled 2/15/13
Bottle #812/813

A- pours a deep black color with a one-finger khaki head that eventually reduces to a ring around the edge of the glass

S- aroma opens with a nice base of smoked malt, giving notes of dried pork, campfire smoke & some oaky notes. Undertones of chocolate, raisins, bandaids & char

T- smoked malt leads the way, providing notes of campfire smoke, cured ham & char. Mid-palate brings out some chocolate notes, as well as tobacco & anise. The finish brings our dark fruit and lingers of burnt malt and smoke

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns slightly creamy into the finish

O- still plenty of smoke to be found, with some nice chocolate and dark fruit undertones. A solid choice for fans of smoked beers
