Hammer Imperial Stout (Philips) and Get Rich Quick

Flavius: I found a perfect get rich quick idea.
Meteman: Great, just don't sell both your kidneys.
F: Really. I wish you told me that yesterday. This idea is better; Professional Lottery Player.
M: The lottery is a voluntary tax on people who do not understand statistical probabilities.
F: I'm sure that I can win. I just finished reading this book about finding patterns in randomness.
M: Can you find the patterns in my random violence?
F: OWW! Why do you keep hitting me?

Hammer Imperial Stout (Phillips)

Rate beer 3.74 93rd percentile
Beer Advocate A

Taste +4

This beer is seasonal and always a treat. The nose is standard imperial stout; roasted coffee, malt, a little chocolate and burnt toast. The taste is rather sweet for an imperial stout. This thick, dark brew shows lots of bittersweet chocolate, coffee bitterness and full roasty tastes. A very drinkable beer.

Aftertaste +2

The bittersweet chocolate sensation lasts for a long, long time. Just before is fades away you get the slightest bite of alcohol.

Alcohol Content +1 8.3%

Yup, its there, but you can't taste it.

Value +1

At the usual craft beer price $5 for 650ml, this is a steal. I plan to get more.

Ingame Enhancement +1

The usual L4d 3 are getting better and better. We are now purposely setting of car alarms just to attract more zombies.


This is truly an exceptional beer. You work hard, you deserve good beer. Buy lots of this one.
