Outstanding
Notes: Aged in bourbon barrels for twelve months, Mocha Machine is a well-engineered endeavor in massive aromatics and rich flavors. Brewed with an array British and German malts, this burly brew is infused with masterfully roasted coffee from Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa, CA. It is then aged on cacao nibs from Ecuador, adding an awesomely deep dimension of fudge.

I find this beer to be quite devine. Aged beautifully like Barbara Stanwick, I’d risk Double Indemnity for this one. Clean and cool, dark and rich... Gimme more. A lot more.

This one pours a very dark black, inky and forbidding, with a small head, and not much lacing.

Huge notes of leathery and caramelly bourbon jump out on the nose, with roasty and smokey coffee, fudgy chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, etc.

This is super bold, with a lot of barrel. There's lots of bourbon flavor just all over this beer, but there's no astringency or booziness, which is impressive. There's lots of rich and roasty coffee, a bit of smokey bitterness, and a sweet and fudgy finish. This is really well crafted.

This is pretty creamy, and rich, but I wish the body was just a hair thicker, for sure. There's a low level of carbonation.

This is quite good- Beachwood hasn't disappointed me yet.
