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 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.

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