John Henry’s Hammer is an American Imperial Stout named after an American legend and the tool of his trade, which was his trusty sledge. It has mixed aroma of roast, coffee and dark chocolate and a rich mouthfeel with a hoppy finish.

750 ml. 2014 vintage, 8.3% abv. Opaque black with a lasting disc of of sticky meringue foam on top. Nose is dark bread, berry, caramel apple and a hint of coffee. Flavor is dark toffee, apple, lightly tart berry and chocolate. Long finish shows some espresso with cream, ash and dark toast. Medium-heavy body has a nice balance and medium carbonation. Strange, but this one tastes English Ale yeast-like and similar to the Tartan Tent Scottish Ale I had from this brewery a couple of days ago.

Diacetyl on the nose, some wood. Black, medium tan head, good lace. Charcoal and sweet coffee with diacetyl present. Finishes with nice smoke and vanilla. Full body, soft body. If it wasn’t for the infection, I think I would have liked this.
