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.

Somewhat bland taste. The medium body and the smokey finish is what saves it.

AndresTM (342) - Houston, 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.

Dogbrick (8950) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Sample at Beerfoot. Hazy mahogany color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Sticky strings of lacing on the glass. Roast malt, hops and fruit in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, caramel and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Light-bodied and drinkable but with some dark roasty coffee notes in the finish to liven things up.

brystmar (1306) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Chocolatey color and a bit cloudy. Small wisp of tan fizz forms on the surface.

Smells like corn and cheap, shitty malts. Equally bland and unimpressive on the palate. Swing and a miss. Unfortunately, this is about what I expect from most Texas breweries these days. :/

Daytonbeer (681) - Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours dark with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee. The taste is the same. Smooth, yet tasty.
