Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

This beer is delicious. I mean absolutely, positively a go-top beer. This beer is the first beer I think about when I am out and about. Do yourself a favor and get this beer.

It is a flavorful beer with quite a lot going for it. The flavor definitely is a good one, but in a way that it changes as you drink it. Some beers have only one note. This is an exception. Enjoy!
