Thanks to megadeph for this 22 oz. bomber which I am about to split with my wife to cap off a night of 13% plus beers. I shouldn’t drink so much.

The pour is blacker than the inside of the USS Midway during a blackout. Reeks of coffee.

Hammer Smashed Face – the name is a backstory I’d like to hear. The beer consists of what, coffee, barrel, vanilla, with bitterness mixed into the mélange that could be roast or cocoa inspired, with harshness to the whiskey that contrasts to the current flock of smoooooooooooth barrel aged stouts. I like harsh. Goes down easy, like girl scout cookies before dinner. I have two boxes upstairs. Wait, one and a half.

Was hoping for epic & faced with very good. That’s acceptable.

Top notch brewski by Brash out of Houston, TX. Had to come over from Beaumont to see what it was all about. Hammer Smashed Faec is black as night, smells like raisins, plums, and roasted malts. The alcohol (which is 14%+?) is expertly hidden. 3 drinks in 1 basically haha. Smooth creamy texture going down. A little heavy on the vanilla bean but it is pleasant along with some booze. Finishes medium, nice barrel aging.

One of the most whisky-forward stouts I've had the pleasure of trying. 2017 release enjoyed on draft. A massive bomb of booze and raw cacao nibs, followed by a liquored up cherry cordial. Strong bitterness and hop character on the mid palate. Mouthfeel is thicc with two C's. Unbalanced, but I can't bring myself to care one bit.
