A tribute to our favorite Brewmaster, Greg Matthews, the Velvet Hammer appears as a dark, ruby reddish-brown ale beneath a sheath of protective off-white foam. It is malt-forward with elements of caramel and the sweetness of light brown sugar, balanced nicely by a combination of floral hops and a noticeable alcohol bite. It's a sturdy brew with a smooth character which belies both an inner strength and a slightly full body, along with a moderate bitterness to round out the taste.

Very nice. Somewhat hoppy, but nice malt notes too, similar to a amber/red ale in that respect. Medium bodied. Nice taste. Terrific with my fish and chips. One of the best offerings in Texas.

This is the best stout I've ever had the chance to drink. I'm a big fan of dark sweet beers and this is as good as it gets for me.

Easy drinking at a local pub needs to clean their lines better.

After drinking one below average Texas beers after another, I ordered "the Velvet Hammer". Thank God for Texas breweries!
