Stopped at Oskar Blues Grill and Brew in Lyons, CO with the family on our way back to Denver from Rocky Mountain National Park on 07/18/11.

Since Ten-Fidy isn't around the pub at this time of year the waitress suggested Velvet Elvis as the closest substitute available. I went for it since this one rotated among others in very limited small batches. Plus, we were sitting right next to this life-sized Elvis, so it was a no-brainer.

Velvet Elvis came out to me in a Dale's Pale Ale pint glass, black as black is, with two fingers of fine mocha-brown head - a perfect pour.

Aromas were of faint sweet caramel malt, a bit of coffee, and a shimmer of semi-sweet chocolate. Not as pronounced as I would have imagined.

Very enjoyable in the flavor department - quite chocolately (semi-sweet), very sweet caramel maltiness, a faint coffee background, very delicate bitters, and what I call a sweet pipe tobacco smokiness.

Very pleasant feel...as implied by the name. Just right in the carbonation zone too.

Overall, I thought this was a really good beer. Realize, I was above the tree line for a few hours and was really anticipating a trip to Oskar Blues, so maybe that plays into my thoughts as well. But...I feel it's getting some hardass reviews here, so try it for yourself if you have the chance.

"That's a dark mysterious fucker," I giddily chortled towards the wife. Black with a nice cinnamon mocha crown.

Smells of day old grounds. Not super old balls, but not fresh either. Unfortunately, that's all that's here. Disappointing after the looks of her. We've all been here.

Stout meet acrid bitter roast. A union not meant to stand the test of time. A one trick pony that should have stayed in the barn.

Having arguably the best coffee stout in the world, Central Water Brewhouse, mostly readily available to me I am a difficult prick to impress when it comes to coffee beers. That, coupled with my general admiration of the bean itself, makes this a one and doner.

i believe it was 6.9 or 7.0

Apperance - black and opaque with a good head. a nice start.

Smell - burnt chocolate, not much else there, some malt, minor oats, some coffee

Taste - more oats, minor chocolate, malt, light tasting, more a summer than a winter for me

Mouthfeel - good body, creamy as possible.

i like the name and its not too shabby. a middle class for a great brewery or a great brew for a shabby brewery

On tap at the Liquids and Solids location yesterday afternoon. Poured a rich black color, with a medium brown head. Aromas of baker's chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. On the palate, medium bodied and lightly smoky, with coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Enjoyable.

Had this one at Oskar Blues in Lyons on 12/29/09.
This beer is a excellent stout. Had a good finger width of brown creamy head that reduced to faint wisps as the beer neared the end of the glass. Light aroma greeted the nose. The taste followed suit with the chocolate. Not too sweet but it wasn't dry either. A good roasted tone with chocolate left as aftertaste of the brew. Overall this brew was another great beer from Oskar Blues.

On-tap at Oskar Blues on 3/19/09

I'd say it's more of a dry Irish stout than an American.

A: Pitch black with a one-finger creamy head. Good sustain, but not much lacing.

S: Very little. Light chocolate aroma.

T: Nearly non-existent. A slight roasted flavor on first sip, and barely anything else after that.

M: Light-medium bodied with a typical nitro creaminess. A bit of bubbly carbonation as well.

D: Nothing about this beer was offensive, but there was absolutely nothing about it that made me want to take another sip. I gave serious consideration to abandoning the pint before I was even half way through.
