Not a bad stout, beautiful inky black pour with a tan head. Malty and chocolatey flavours but alsohad a weird bitter metallic taste.

Bottle shared by Willy, thanks bud! Dark black pour, thick mocha head. Aroma, mocha, coffee, vanilla, and roasted malts. Taste, mild coffee, dry roasted malts, a bit thin on the mouthfeel, very coffee forward. Overall, not bad, lacks a bit of complexity but overall pretty decent.

Well, in the past I hated their Espresso Stout but the Hammer was really good, so I have no idea what to expect. Very dark brown, thin brown head...looks good. Body is medium, some malt sweetness but maybe not enough to cover the coffee, which is clean but quite frankly boring. Can’t use boring coffee in a coffee stout - it’s the showpiece ingredient so it needs to be brighter and more complex. So overall, it’s ok, but not great by any means.

Bottle @ Yespr. Pours black with a lasting and lacing small beige head. Aroma is coffee, acrid roasted malt, cocoa, caramel. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is moderate. Finishes dry, watery and hard roasted .

Bottle from BC Liquors
Black color with generous brownish head. Aroma of coffee pot and coffee beans. Dry and lean mouthfeel; strong character of bad, day-old coffee pot; regular bitterness.
Not the beer we need.

vadie (780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
Noir sombre avec un col moyen marron. L’arôme fort du café. Le goût est du café, malt torréfié et un peu de molasse. J’ai trouvé le café trop fort, comme le marc de café au lieu du café.

bulldogops (1050) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Rating #953 - February 6, 2014 - 650ml bottle, Beer 8 in @coopwinespirits February discovery bag. Beautiful dark brown pour with a fairly foamy tan head with mild lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted barley, mild alcohol. Fairly light for an IS (texturally), lots of espresso earthy notes on the palate. Medium-heavy alcohol warmth but not ultra boozy on the palate. Nice.
