BEER INFO

Brewed by:
3 Sheeps Brewing
Wisconsin, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cashmere Hammer drinks like the best darn milkshake you’ve ever had. It’s rich, creamy, packed with chocolatey goodness and an earthy spice that can only come from rye malt. And, as if that isn’t rare enough, this beer is nitrogenated, something shockingly few breweries in the country can do in a bottle. We spent 18 months in research and development building our double-secret bottling line to get that smooth, velvety mouthfeel that only nitrogen can impart.

This is as close to a Guinness any American stout has ever come. Beautiful nitro head dropping into that deep black color. Chocolate roasted nose with full dry stout flavor of caramel, smoke and tobacco. Lovely mouth feel too. Great beer.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head.
S: Moderate aromas of chocolate and roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is very chocolatey with hints of roasted malts and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a very nice smooth and creamy mouthfeel from the nitrogen carbonation.

Pour this beer accordingly and you will be happy with the thick, pillowy head topping off a deep, dark stout. Roasty, chocolatey goodness with a smooth, creamy feel. A nice abv level allows you to have a few in a row. Good job!.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. Label has bottled on date as '08/24/18'.
Black colored body with a very tiny edge of dark brown edge when back lit. Head upon initial pour is a thin cap, which sticks around and adds a thick ring. Each sip leaves a thick pattern of lacing.
Lots of dark roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma. I do not discern the spicy rye malt.
Taste is dark roasted malts, chocolate, and the spicy rye malt. Good balance throughout.
Has the nitro creamy and smooth texture for mouth feel, but thin, and less than anticipation. Okay carbonation.
As advertised, this is a chocolate milk shake tasting beer. I think the nitro effect takes away some depth of smell and flavor, but in the end, the beer is very tasty and smooth.

Pours a clear dark brown color. 2/3 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong sweet malt, chocolate, slight roasted malt, slight oatmeal, and a hint of spicy hops. Fits the style of an American Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. There is a slight roasted malt, bitterness. Tastes of strong sweet malt, chocolate, slight roasted malt, slight oatmeal, alcohol, and a hint of spicy hops. Overall, good appearance, too bitter, oddly weak in body, but good feel.

I found this better than BA-ers.
a) Solid midwest build, opaque black body sporting measurable and lasting and lacing head.
s) The roasted malts offer a coffee house, bitter aroma of espresso, toaster oven, and bittersweet chocolate.
t) Intense and flavorful. Lots of inky dark chocolate /cacao that transitions so nicely to the malt and the spicy rye bitter finish. The see saw makes it complex, intense, and a great last beer of the evening.
f) Velvety, smooth - as it sounds a "cashmere hammer" so well named.
o) A stunner at 6.5% I'd buy cases in can. Ship to NJ.
