Tap at Beachwood LB, super strong coffee nose, no surprise there, I don’t find the fudge or cacao nibs because of the abundance of coffee, almost a gritty like texture which is surprising, still a fantastic brew.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Beachwood BBQ in Long Beach, CA. This was my favorite out of the sampler. Intense aromatic coffee and mocha notes with a dry light bitter finish. Definite rich chocolate fudge notes in the flavor. Great stuff.
