Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin
Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin is an Oatmeal Stout. I am trying this Fall seasonal for the first time in the Spring thanks to a nice trade. Big thanks to Jeremy for the great box! It seems to be holding up rather well over the last 6 months or so. Smokey and roasty with a mild oatmeal “sour twang”. Notes of coffee, toffee, chocolate and a hint of alcohol as well. (kind of surprising at 5.5% ABV) The mouth-feel seems a bit thin for an Oatmeal Stout, but it is making up for it with a lot of flavor and very high drinkabilty.
