COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
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.

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2008
Alibi Room with Tigglmtl, and so a surprisingly good stout that is underated. Great roast coffee aroma. Creamy medium mouthfeel taste, very fresh (and the all the difference) and roasty coffee. Lacey. Above average carbonation.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2007
Pours a dark brown with no head to speak of and a faint, earthy chocolaty aroma with slight roasted notes. Watery, earthy brown malt taste, hint of roastiness, thin body, somewhat disappointing. Odd bit of trivia: Lush uses this beer in a shampoo. Go figgur! Sampled at the GCBF.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
Dark brown with a white head. Mocha and chocolate aromas caramel as well. Roasted malt taste with a long bitter finish, lightly sweet. The palate is a bit thin. A so so stout. GCBF.

donpasquale (5) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007 does not count
Crannog’s innocent looking stout has something which isn’t innocent at all: drinkability. Heavy, silky Italian coffee flavour, with a fine almost...chocolate-like nose. 5.2% placket, relaxed drink...innocence and mayhem at once.
