Oily black pour with a firm beige head of 3 fingers. Lots of scattered lace left behind.

Aromas of crisp chocolate malt and roast barley, lactose, and copper.

Flavor is very smokey, roasty, with suggestions of chocolate and oats. Strong coffee influence. A nice bitter cocoa finish at the end.

Feel is naturally creamy due to the nitro. Very nice crisp, roasty finish as well.

Overall, Cashmere Hammer is a solid stout worth trying if you've never had it. It's nothing groundbreaking but it's simple and enjoyable and that's worth a lot.

One of my top five beers, and produced by my favorite brewery. It is the only nitro I would compare favorably to Left Hand's own product, and, to be honest, it isn't that far off from being a clone (albeit, again, just a hair better).
A splash of chocolate intermingles with the smooth, thick nitro feel, with the coffee roast washing it all away. This is the flavor profile that makes a beer national - I have no doubt beers like this are the reason for 3 Sheeps incredible expansions over the past few years.

Pours a beautiful dark brown/deep ruby with creamy tan head , nice lacing through the finish . Nice aroma , not overpowering. Mouthfeel velvety smooth , not much carbonation . Heavy chocolate flavor with coffee and nutty undertones . Looking forward to the next one !

Poured from a bottle had a lot less head (almost none) than I expected for a Nitro. Maybe would be better out if a tap?
Came out dark black and looked good.
Not as creamy as I'd hoped but had a nice mouthfeel (little bubbly).
Nice tasting dark beer without a bitter coffee aftertaste.
Not fabulous but a good beer that I'd drink again.

Unknown vintage; drank 12/27/15 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Black/brown appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge tan head; strong, frothy lace.

Fresh earth, raspberry & dry chocolate notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Raspberry, fresh earth & dry chocolate flavors. Interesting & easy to drink; not revelatory but I'd have another.
