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.

Light yet earthy aroma. Nice black and tan head. Roasty and well balanced. Good body, malty with medium carbonation. This is a well-rounded organic stout at Vancouver's organic best, The Naam. Yummy. I want to die here with a dragon bowl in one hand and a Crannog Ale in the other.

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

dresden (1308) - 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 (10781) - 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.

jonnyguns (1104) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2013
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

Found this in Salmon Arm years ago, fell in love. Can find it in very few places, but sure to please when found! Rich but clean taste.
