Black Magic

Milking It

The new ingredient is lactose, a.k.a. milk sugar. When Velvet Merlin is brewed with milk sugar to create Nitro Merlin Milk Stout, the effect is similar to adding cream to your dark roasted coffee. The result is a stout that is still dark and roasty, but now with a mellow sweetness and added roundness of body.

Nitro Wizardry

The wizardry comes via “nitro,” the brewing nickname for nitrogen gas. A nitro beer contains more nitrogen gas and less carbon dioxide (CO2) gas compared to a traditional beer. The signatures of nitro beers are brilliant clarity in the glass; thick, long-lasting foam; and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel—all qualities that accentuate and enhance the classic milk stout character.
