Velvet Merlin

Fall & Winter

A decadent oatmeal stout.  Velvet Merlin offers robust cocoa and espresso aromas with subtle American hop nuances.  Rich dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish create the perfect balance in this full-bodied stout.  Ideal for sipping in the winter months or at the end of a meal.  

REMEMBER: Watch for bottled on dates located on the necks or bottom left corner of the label for each of our beers.  Our beer is not pasteurized, so it is best when stored at 44F or below, out of light and within 180 days of the bottled on date...this ensures freshness and ultimately a great Firestone Walker beer!
