Lean in body and powerful in flavour, Back Hand of God Stout (formerly known as "Black Wolfhound") has won three 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.

Draught at Raven Pub, North Vancouver
Black color, creamy head. Ashes and burnt malt aroma. Quite smooth mouthfeel; strong chocolate, burnt malt and coffee flavor; dry middle and final; correct bitterness. Simple but well balanced, and luckily the burnt component is not too disturbing in the final.

Tap @ Alibi Room, Vancouver. Dark pour, decent head, nice lacing. Solid roasted malt aroma. Medium body. Pretty basic dry Irish stout but a solid beer

On tap at the Raven in Deep Cove. The glass was too cold for proper tasting, but the head was thin and non existant fairly quickly. Flavour is a tad thin and fizzy kind of boring nutty flavour and watery finish. Not a strong stout but passable.

Draft at the Alibi Room. Pours black with a thin pale tan head. Nose is chocolatey roast malt, coffee, toast. palate is more of the same. An exceedingly well-rounded and well balanced stout. Very nicely made with no sharp edges. A surprising Canadian effort.

Drought at The Railway Club.
Black beer with a tan head. Sweet and chocolaty aroma that came off a little plain. Medium thin feel with soft carbonation. Chocolaty with a slight bitterness and roasty, smokey flavour. Pretty good beer overall. Good name.

Very strong roast greets the nose with nutty underlying malt character. Dark brown body is topped by a low but lasting off white head that lasts well. Very dry and drinkable flavour has a strong raosted bitterness and some light nutty and cocoa character. Medium light body with creamy texture and moderate to strong carbonation that really awakens the palate. Sampled on tap at the Alibi room with Sammy.
