Velvet Merlin is best if enjoyed within 180 days of its bottling date.
Originally called Velvet Merkin until we 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 oﬀers robust cocoa and espresso aromas with subtle American hop nuances. Rich dark chocolate and roasted coﬀee ﬂavors accentuate a creamy mouthfeel and dry ﬁnish to create perfect balance in this full-bodied stout.
