Pours a deep dark with a little beige lacing. Nice aroma of coffee, chocolate malts. Tastes of coffee and coco with some earthiness at the end. A pretty easy to drink well brewed.
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.

This was a really good dark beer. I had it as a closer and it was really tasty. Good chocolate notes, rich by not too heavy. I liked it a lot

Faint aroma of roasted malt. Chocolate brown color. Hints of nut and toast with some chocolate. Medium to light palate. Decent beer. Skinnyviking (9644) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2016

Pours a dark brownish red color with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Caramel and wheat nose. Light roasted chocolate and barley flavor. Light mouthfeel average carbonation. This drinks like a better version of shiner. Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2016

12 ounce bottle thanks to Secret Santa crajun! Dark brown, thin foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of caramel, raisin and toasted malt. The taste is chocolate, nuts, grain. Herbal hops. Thin-medium bodied. Decent. Andrew196 (1945) - Katy, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Poured brown with mahagony edges, semi course beige head. Nutty aroma, roasted almonds and such. Tasted exactly as expected, light coffee, nuts, some cocoa with a hint of hop bitterness easing into the finish...straight forward, not complex, but not at all bad. Perfect for a cool Texas night with a stew or venison chili indeed.
