Olut kaatuu lasiin mustana muodostaen beigen vaahdon. Sen tuoksu on paahtunut, lakritsinen ja suklainen. Maku on paahtunut, suklainen, hieman kahvinen ja makeahko. Suhteellisen tuhti ja keskihiilihappoinen olut.

stefannilssons (1487) - SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2013
Det här var gott och även lite över förväntan, smaken var fin med toner av choklad och kaffe. Balansen var väl avvägd och ytterst behaglig även om kroppen var i tunnaste laget. Slutsats; riktigt trevlig stout.

olsvammel (3464) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting under the name Christmas Velvet. Somewhat weird smell, either that or my nose is fucked, this smells like an outdoor toilette. The taste is better, malty with some roasted notes. Weird beer and not too my liking.

330 ml bottle. Dark brown body with a huge brown-tainted head. Notes of roasted malt, burnt wood, dark chocolate and licorice. Sold under the name "Christmas Velvet" which is totally stupid as there is nothing christmasy about this beer. Quite nice stout though.

O’haras christmas velvet. Sort med høyt lys brunt skum, legger seg fort men blir der. Karamell og brent kaffelukt. Medium bitter. Noe merkelig blomsteraktig smak, jord morsomt! Medium- kullsyre.
