Style: American Strong Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

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

Had this on tap at The Holy Grail in Frisco. Tasted like cough medicine. Maybe it had gone bad but whatever it was, this was not at all what I had expected.
