Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin is a 5.5 ABV Oatmeal Stout. The appearance is blackish with a roasted malt nose. The palate is smooth and mellow oatmeal malt with those roasted chocolate coffee stout notes. The mouthfeel is pleasant and creamy and only enhances as it warms. At 5.5% Velvet Merlin is relatively light on the alcohol and dry on the finish so it's ultimately drinkable yet has such nice texture and depth of character. Definitely one to try.
Bell’s Cherry Stout is a massive bomb of tartness that leaves a fallout of chocolaty malt in its wake. Don’t let the peaceful nature scene with dancing cherries on the bottle fool you, this is not a beverage for the timid.
