Back Hand Of God StoutBack Hand Of God Stout
Notes: Lean in body and powerful in flavour, Back Hand of God Stout has won many consumers' choice awards. This dry stout is easy to drink, rich and inviting. It is extraordinarily smooth and mildly hopped with a distinct coffee/chocolate presence.

Big thanks to wordemupg for this rarity.

Poured from a growler and shared a little with my wife.

Appearance: Pours a real thick black body that unfortunately has no head though i can coax a tiny bit of foam.

Smell: Heady and strong with some charred wood and chocolate.

Taste: Nice mix of wood, chocolate and coffee. Very roasted and good.

Mouthfeel: Obviously the lack of carbonation hinders it a bit but it does have a slick smoothness, some moderate bitterness and very easy to drink.

Overall: Despite its lack of carbonation, a true testament to the brew's quality as the flavors and aroma still shine through.

On tap at Kingfisher's in Maple Ridge.

Appearance. Pours a deep, deep brown with a half a finger of light tan head.

Smell. Light notes of sweet chocolate and roasty coffee.

Taste. Roasty coffee and toasty malt, a little chocolate. Not much for sweetness.

Mouthfeel. Lighter body with light carbonation.

Overall. A pleasant and lighter tasting stout. Tasted good but was left wanting a little more of that taste. An imperial version would probably be fantastic ...but that's neither here nor there.
