To be released 5/24
I want this epic-ness in and around my mouth asap.
Solid stout, wish I wasn't getting back from Calgary that day
One of my all time favorite coffee beers (aka Calistouts)
Nice. I hope they release Melrose next.
I take it this is a totally different recipe than Tovarish?
Well, that's going to be a busy weekend for me but I know I'll be there.
I'll grab a handful of them and set one aside for you. We'll have to set something up after they are released and meetup at either Beachwood location and grab a beer together and I'll bring a bottle along with me for you.
How many cases were made available for purchase of their previous releases? Is this something that I should try and get at Beachwood or go hunting for?
it's varied. They haven't released bottle limits/counts yet. Thrillseeker was pretty widely available as was Full Malted Jacket, but Bourbon Barrel Aged Full Malted Jacket and Tovarish flew. They said more info would be coming soon
It varied. Thrillseeker was showing up in places like Pasadena and the South bay as well as in Beverly Hills. So it got some pretty big release. I think it lasted at the LB location for at least 3 days or so.
Full Malted Jacket BA was gone in a flash at the locations themselves within hours. I saw the non-BA version, and still see it today at places all over L.A. and the valley.
It probably will be around for a couple of days and you can go hunting for it. But the easier option would be to go there for it.
What is the trade value!
Beachwood makes sub-par beer across the board, so the trade value is probably going to be SUPER low.
I'd steer clear of this release.
Please, don't buy any.
The best coffee integration in a beer I've had to date.
It was a bit too intense for me and that's coming from someone who loves good coffee. I felt the same way about Tovarish and Taps Imperial Balinese Stout. The best coffee stout I've had of late is Stone Espresso IRS, which is incredibly balanced. I wasn't fond of Dayman either.
I speak with certainty when I say the trade value is enormous. I know I'm going to hoard it. I mean advocate it.
Hmmm. Memorial Day road trip coming up!
I'm hoping they barrel aged a batch that will be released at their locations. Anyone with insider information?
Thrillseeker was on the shelves of Whole Foods Pasadena last week I think it was...
Interesting, the bottled version looks like it won't have the Armenian brandy in it.
will Serj show up at the release ?
From what I remember, it wasn't necessarily "in it;" but that they used Armenian brandy soaked oak chips. I noticed the same thing when reading the description for this current release.
As an Armenian, I am super excited for this. I can't wait to have it side by side with my grandmas gritty armenian coffee.
. . . . .again a another classic label from a very classy brewery. Beachwood rocks. Their beers "r" the best in LA and OC. Will pick up bottles of this.
Hmmmm, yeah, I thought Espresso IRS was good, but not great. To me, System of a Stout was certainly intense on the coffee, but not heavy handed. Tons of coffee flavor and aroma with none of the astringency/bitterness (which is typically the mark of poorly made coffee). Agreed on Dayman. Probably the best IPA/Coffee effort I've had, but still not a great beer.
Naturally we all have different thresholds for certain flavor profiles. I tend to prefer more a more balanced approach with regards to coffee in beer, hence my preference for Espresso IRS. The coffee was present and never went away, yet it didn't bombard each sip which was what System of a Stout tasted like to me. I was very psyched to try it and it happened to be on tap one of the times I visited the LB location. The coffee was so intense, I found it very difficult to get through. A friend, who was with me that day, who also happens to be a coffee aficionado, also felt the same way.
The cardamom scares me, not a flavor I'm into. One of those DFH/FFF cardamom beers (or both?) kind of scarred me a little bit.
How pungent is it in this beer?
I can't say it was cardamom specifically but there was a flavor present that I couldn't pinpoint. It could very well have been cardamom.
Armo BA's unite....cant wait
If flavor had much basis on trade value (which it frequently does not), this would probably be a highly sought beer.
But I'm not sure that anyone outside of Southern California knows about Beachwood BBQ, so I can't imagine this beer will land you walezbro.
Can't wait for this.
I sincerely hope that a bunch of neckbeards don't line up hours before the release and snag all the bottles.
Well it's becoming quite apparent that I'm right and you are wrong
Does Beechwood sell the bottles too? (Website reads as draft only) and do you guys think he bottles would last until 5/27?
(Sorry noob questions from norcal)
A case willl go nice with some bbq nachos...
I think bottles will last. We'll have a better idea after we see what goes out to distribution.
For the last release (Thrillseeker) bottles were available at Long Beach and I believe the Seal Beach location as well.
I would say that for the most part the answer is NO.
Now here me out as I am well known as a Beachwood fanboy. To date Beachwood has bottled around 6ish beers over the course of the last year. All of them were small releases (some tiny 200ish bottles) with no repeats. I'd hardly say Beachwood is bottling their beers, more of they have bottled a beer here and there.
Edit: In case I'm not clear. Yes you can buy whatever they have recently bottled at the brewery (Long Beach) and Seal Beach locations - if it's in stock.
Don't be so sure about that. I had never heard of Toppling Goliath or Perennial until they turned into dem waelz.
Okay, fair point about Toppling Goliath, and about the unpredictability of waelzness. (I brought a Perennial beer to that epic bottle share/whale slaying you and Jer hosted last year. But there was nothing waelzish about that one.)
