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.

Great dark stout. Hard to find but when you do hunker down you are sure to have a few.

En fût à la brasserie. D’abord, je suis étonné que cette bière reçoit des scores tellement bas. C’est une de les meilleurs stout que j’ai jamais bu. Peut-être j’ai eu de la chance et que j’ai tombé sur un lot spéciale. L’arôme est comme un stout impériale. Plein du malt torréfié, avec du chocolat et café. L’arôme est tellement forte et complexe que je dirais que c’est même épais. En bouche il y a plein du corps, mais ce n’est pas lourde comme un stout impériale. D’abord il y a du chocolat et café, un peu sucré, puis un amertume léger qui l’équilibre juste assez pour que ça soit buvable. Les saveurs sont très prononcés et complémentaire. Si j’ai un avis ça sera que une finition un peu plus amer l’équilibrera mieux la palate un peu sucré.

Roast and some dark chocolate. Pours black with good head. Some caramel. Light bitter finish with touch of tang in aftertaste. Tap at St augustines.

Draught @ Creekbread, Creekside. Clear ebony, no head. Very sweet, syrupy taste. Coffee with milk, yuck...

dresden (1475) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Draft at cascade room. Dark brown, slightly red in the light. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, lightly bitter. Tastes of a nice light roast coffee, milk chocolate and spice. Quite thin, but a nice beer overall.

Ferris (12879) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
Draft - A bit buttery with toasted malts. Deep mahogany with a beige brown head. Lots of burnt toast, chocolate and light bitterness. Not bad, but I have the feeling this is an off batch, I have had better.

Sampled at Great Canadian Beer Festival. Surprised I’ve never rated this as I seek it out every year at Beer Fest. Solid, reliable, all-around good stout. Lots of roast, dry, none too sweet but with an easy bitterness. Full-bodied, round and creamy.

Tap at micro. Pours a jet black with a solid tanned head. Nose has chocolate malts, roasted coffee and dry smoky hops. Taste is really dry coffee based. Bitterness just clings to the palate leaving it dry. Late coating of chocolate. Pretty solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best Stouts I've ever tried. Outstanding Color, aroma, fullness of flavor and very satisfying. A true BC Gem. MB -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
