Firestone Walker Brewing Company
Originally called Velvet Merkin until they got a case of cold feet, this beer was renamed Velvet Merlin in honor of Bremaster Matt “Merlin” Brynildson, who earned the nickname because of his magical ability to rack up top honors at prestigious beer competitions. Velvet Merlin is a decadent oatmeal stout that will warm your innards on a cold winter night. It o?ers robust cocoa and espresso aromas with subtle American hop nuances. Rich dark chocolate and roasted co?ee ?avors accentuate a creamy mouthfeel and dry ?nish to create perfect balance in this full bodied stout.
