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.

"A by the book but very solid robust stout. Kinda similarto export stouts with it’s rich hearty malt base. Some chocolate, coffee and roasted barley on the nose and flavor. solid feel, smooth finish."

Draught@Ned Kelly’s, Green Bay 08/2013. Smooth and creamy dark oat shake with noticeable hop accompaniment and a much welcomed AbV potency after too many light dark porters. Impression this might even be fuller from the can that from watery tap.

Had at Ned Kelly’s downtown Green Bay. I have heard of this beer and finally found it on draft. This beer pours dark in color and gives you aromas of coffee and oats.... The flavor is comparable to Founders Breakfast Stout. A little watery in the body, this beer should be on nitro. Overall I loved the flavor.

One of the better stouts I’ve had at this alcohol level. Dark, roasty, super drinkable. Dry finish.

Solid oatmeal stout. Nice round texture, bit of coffee on the nose and flavor with a tad of sweetness in the finish. Nice to have an alternative when you aren’t up for a TenFidy.

Tap at their Lyons pub. Jet black with a thin tan fizzy head. Aromas of coffee, bitter dark chocolate, oat and burlap. Flavor very much mirrors the aroma, with the burlap and oat providing a nice dryness next to the chocolate. Medium body with vibrant carbonation.

Smooth creamy stout with a nice roasted chocolate tone. Its not always on tap and you need to look closely for the handle when it is as it is not one that stands out among the many other beers on tap.

On tap @ Homemade Liquids and Solids. Deep dark brown, near black. Aromas of roasted chocolate, a bit of oats, light smoke..."stoutiness". Flavor is roasty, big and dark. Light smoke, gentle chocolate, hop bitterness that doesn’t linger nor leave hop flavor. But gets hoppier as it warms. Chocolate is most evident flavor, but isn’t overdone for kicks. Pretty average stout I suppose.

On Tap at Oskar Blues Home Made Liquids & Solids, Longmont. Dark black appearance with a quite small tan head. Pretty standard dark, slightly roasty, chocolate malty nose. Roasty, medium hop bitterness, dark malty flavor. Nothing special.

Pours very dark. Thick tan head that hangs around begging for a Belgian Dip. Great roasty flavor. Bitter cocoa, roasted coffee. Nice bitterness. Great stout.
