Deep, dark color - hints of chocolate and coffee on the nose, and a full, rich satisfying long finish, make this the perfect beer for hearty dishes; stews; chilis, wild game gumbo and other full flavored, hearty dishes. It is made with the four classic ingredients: barley, American hops, yeast, and pure Texas Hill Country water. It is a celebration of beer the way it was made 100 years ago.

Schertz, Tx.- H.E.B. grocery store - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown pour, decently thick khaki colored head. Aroma has some light chocolate accents, a bit of nuttiness. Flavor had some nice light chocolate undertones, some nuttiness, just a hint of earthy topsoil. Thick enough mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2015
The first whiff was caramel, molasses, brown sugar, and chocolate malts, but the subsequent nasal experience was slightly different: cereal, instant coffee, earth, tobacco, and spicy hops. The mouthfeel is runny, with a thin body and medium carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter and mildly sweet, with an earthy, roasty finish. Very drinkable.
