Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: largadeer on 11-13-2008

A decadent oatmeal stout. Velvet Merlin offers robust cocoa and espresso aromas with subtle American hop nuances. Rich dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish create the perfect balance in this full-bodied stout. Ideal for sipping in the winter months or at the end of a meal.

Original name was "Velvet Merkin", but name was changed when it began to be bottled in 2010.

Appearance: Dark chocolate color with a brown short lasting head.
Aroma: Medium coffee aroma
Flavor: Medium bodied with a coffee flavor.
Overall: This stout does not have much flavor. It’s some what harsh, but does try to end with a smooth mouth expected of an oatmeal stout
