Velvet Hammer is a rich, dark imperial porter with a balance of roast and caramel sweetness touched off with undertones of vanilla from a slew of Madagascar beans added during fermentation. It’s smooth as velvet when it hits your lips (and tastes so good), but after a few its imperial size will bring the hammer down on you. Or maybe it’s just the name of a hard-rock band Rodd wants to start
Served on tap at the brewery in LB.
Pours jet black, clear top. Strong vanilla bean smell. Like ice cream. Finally a nose to an LB beer! Smooth, rich, creamy flkavor. Notes of coffee. Can really taste the vanilla. Kind of a clingy aftertaste though. Hearty. Not an easy one to down - a sipper for sure.
Serving type: on-tap
