4.21/5 rDev +0.2%
Appearance: Very black. Beautiful
Nose: Very light in general. Heavy on the chocolate, roasted malt and coffee notes. Medium on rum, general booze and vanilla. Light, light soy sauce.
Taste: Follows the nose almost to a tee. The barrel treatment is delicate and compliments the base beer rather that covering it up or detracting from it.
Mouthfeel: Medium+ to Heavy, quite thick. Carbonation is spot on.
Overall: Very, very nice beer. Beautiful barrel treatment of the right base beer. Not a common occurrence in the beer world today. Recommended and a certain re-buy.

I guess I prefer my stouts to taste more dessert like aka chocolate, nut, and coffee notes. But the Hammer of the Holy does have a nice complexity to it. I definitely get the smoke flavor, the rum barrel, not so much. Maybe it's because of the rums I'm familiar with, lend themselves with more dessert-y flavors. There is a nice a fruitiness to this stout though - think of chocolate covered raisins.
