COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You know the expression, "A Velvet Glove and an Iron Fist"? It was coined to refer to a regime that used a soft exterior to hide its punishingly unforgiving nature. This seems an apt description for our Velvet Glove. Its placid appearance and unparalleled smoothness hide the truth; this is one fiendishly strong stout. Rich, chocolaty espresso dominates the flavor profile, with a velvety smooth texture that will haunt your senses.

Aroma of raisins, dates, licorice and cocoa. Deep black with a moderate tan foam top. Full, rich flavors of chocolate, coffee, fudge and molasses. Very thick and rich. Overall, this is a heavy beer with over the top richness and tons of malt. I’d give this a B+ rating.

Pours black with a medium tan head. Aromas of rich dark fruits. Plum, raisin, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is much of the same with a little spice, nutmeg and coffee. Finish is sweet with a little touch of bitter chocolate. Good flavors, but feels a little off balance.
