Notes: 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.

Pours black with brown head 3/7", some excellent retention and appearance here. Aroma is practically the most roasted malt you could possibly envision. Is there some smoked wood here too? WE WANT THE SMOKE! Anyways, man there is just a ton of roasted barley and like no adjuncts to this. Just moar malt and moar fire.

Taste, yeah man, roasted malt. How many times can I type that in this review? Its really all about the roasted malt. Hides the alcohol well. Shit, I think they roasted malt that displaced alcohol. Roasty smoke all over this. So much bitterness via roasted malt. Roasted wood, roasted malt. I dunno how much longer I can stretch by belaboring the heavily roasted malt and smoked wood. Break this out for all your cigar and smoke beer friends. Take it camping, it will fit in there. There's a lot of wood and a lot of roasted malt to dive into here, and the depths are quite deep. Bring friends.
