COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed for the brewer’s wife, a dedicated Stout lover. She requested a dark, rich Stout that she could not see her hand on the other side of the glass. It was to be made full-bodied, with chocolate tones and a creamy finish. And as she is married to a brewer… plenty of hops! At 6.9% ABV, this beer delivered. To pay homage to the Southern roots of Oskar Blues, our buddy Jonny Barber and the smooth character of this beer, we chose to name it the Velvet Elvis. He even made an appearance in the brewery several weeks ago for the brewing of this beer.

Sampled from the tap at Busters. Pours black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has notes of chocolate, dark bread and a bit of dark grains. Flavor is a bit thin with dark grains, light roast and some chocolate coming through.

Tap at Busters. Very dark dense pour with a beige head. Dark roast, creamy but not overly heavy. Hops help balance the creamy sweetness. Quite good.

Pretty standard dark beer - roasty, coffee in places. Rather simple. Malty roasty, sweet. A bit keggy, but full. So flat compared to the beavertown, this is so flat and dead. Still a decent malty stout, though

Draft. Poured deep brown with a short-lived tan head. The aroma picked up coffee, cocoa, and light smoky malts. The flavor found roasty cocoa and rye biscuits at the core, withlight smoky malts emanating outward.. Nice hit of roast on the finish. Smooth through the palate with enough roast to cut through. Well-done!

Brewdog Shepherd Bush. Keg. Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is finely minerally crisp and semi dry. Smooth dark malts, very light touch of roast bitterness. Mild malt cream and very light citrus. Little spicy hop. Finishes with a carbonated nip. Standard stuff but tidy.

The_Osprey (5930) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Keg at Brewdog. Black, small thick foamy tan head, full lacing. Aroma is vegetal - cabbage, a bit farty, crisps. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is card, soft molasses, no real bitterness, quite watery and underflavoured. Average at best. (2.95)
