Great tasting beer!! Had on tap, and came out with a dark Amber color and a killer head that never went away. Smooth with a slight hoppy taste. Had at Gas Monkey Bar and Grill.

Velvet hammer, indeed. This stuff will sneak up on you. I would say I enjoyed everything about the beer, but I found the aftertaste just a touch overwhelming. Initially though, the taste was full of caramel and a bit of malt. Slightly sweet, then a blast of hops, followed by a strong, resinous finish. Think Sam Adams on a whole lot of steroids and GH, and that will put you in the neighborhood.

The name fits! It's as smooth as mother's milk, but will hammer you after a couple of em' 😆

Not my thing. Too strong hops taste

Nice Amber color with a strong aroma, almost like wine. The feel is smooth, but the taste is very hoppy and bitter. It's a dry beer and not one I would choose again. profile - January 12, 2015
Nice dark ale up front with smooth entry. Hoppy finish on the back end. Almost like a stout on the front

Good beer. Crisp flavor, almost like a ruby red grapefruit...
