Back Hand of God Stout (Crannog)

This was enjoyed on tap at the Railway Club; a great place for guys like me to go and get picked up by cougars. It made me feel youthful again; I have a young face so I was almost as old as these ladies. Luckily they left me alone so I could enjoy my beer and watch the band.

This is a beer that has reached cult status; like Rogue's Dead Guy and Fat Tire. It might soon be a CAMRA Victoria requirement that members drink at least two pints a month of this beer at Christie's pub. That way the pour will always be fresh.

Back Hand of God Stout (Crannog) = 7/10

Oh glorious burnt nose: speak to me your tales of roasted Tim's coffee and bitter chocolate. Nourish my palate with your dark chocolate shouts and licorice whispers. I will forgive the stale Tim's coffee rings on my tongue because your thinness is desirable. There is no need to coax one last tickle of roasted bitter chocolate; yet it is short lived.
