Firestone Walker: Velvet Merkin 8.5% [355ml]

They say “Velvet Merkin is the beer that almost wasn’t … indeed, this vintage oatmeal stout’s comical  (or is it scandalous?) name went off the grid for several years, but now it’s back due to popular demand. Velvet Merkin is aged for a full year in retired spirits barrels from Heaven Hill, Woodford Reserve and others, yet manages to offer mind-boggling balance and restraint. You will wig out when you taste Velvet Merkin’s rich milk chocolate, bourbon and espresso flavours, preceded by aromas of vanilla, coconut, toasted oak and mocha.“

We say "We say “Now in a perfectly self-indulgent drink-in-the-bath size! This has a sweet and chewy middle of the brownie quality which is rather unctuous! There are dry and bitter notes of tobacco, coffee, coconut and oak to balance out the sweetness. The creaminess helps it slip down easily despite the boozy kick in the close.”
