Stout Lovers, Prepare for the Back Hand of God

Available only on tap, and only in British Columbia, Back Hand of God Stout, from Crannog Ales, is a stout that’s sure to surprise and satisfy almost any beer drinker.
Back Hand of God is described as, “lean in body, and powerful in flavour,” on www.crannogales.com, so it’s easy to pack a few pints down without feeling sluggish or bloated.
It’s a smooth drinking beer, with a coffee/chocolate finish. The great thing about the coffee and chocolate aspects is that they’re not overwhelming. They’re strong enough to make you pause after your first sip, then ask the bartneder what exactly Crannog has added to this stout – when he or she tells you it’s coffee and chocolate your tasting, you’ll nod in approval and exclaim, “That’s what it is…another pint please.”
A final point of interest is that Crannog Ales is the first certified organic farmhouse brewery in Canada. They use water from a well and creeks on the farm, as well as their own hops. Both of these ingredients guarantee that all their ales have a distinct flavour.
Try it with a decent burger, or even a platter of wings. All the flavours in it get your taste buds fired up, so have a pint or two with dinner, and enjoy another round or two or three for dessert.
