Velvet Fog was poured from the can into a snifter, appearing a murky brown color with a modest mocha head hugging the rim of the glass. The aroma smells of bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits, and a hint of sweet berries. Before I describe the taste, I must state that the taste is really good. The initial taste is incredibly smooth and warming. Notes included in the taste were dark cherries, sweet malts, dry apple, and an amaretto hints. As the taste melts, it is a but warming smooth brandy like note. My one real disappointment comes in the fact that I do not think this one is as thick as it should be. It runs a little too thin in a manner that is uncharacteristic for the style. This is still a very good beer.
