A unique spin on the Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout. The addition of lactose (milk sugar) and a dose of nitrogen transforms our original stout into ribbons of French silk chocolate and mocha latte richness.

Luvystypotables (2067) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2017
On tap at Grain, a watery smoked malt aroma, somewhat subdued. Pours a clear dark brown color with a foamy tan head. Taste is a nice smoked malt with a creamy mouth feel with a watery finish of smoked malt.

RedSox2004 (1970) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 3, 2017
On tap at the Venice taproom. Opaque black with mahogany highlights, minimal head and retention. Modest chocolate and espresso aromas. Flavors come on much stronger, and feature a roasted malts, black coffee and hints of milk chocolate. Slight sweetness from the oatmeal, but not very strong. Sinfully creamy smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation, very dry, and a lingering chocolate malt sweetness in the finish.

Draft at The Shed. Dark brown with one finger , creamy head, which lasts all the way to the bottom Slightly sweet lacto aroma, roast grains. Taste also focuses on the milky sweetness, chocolate notes. Super smooth and creamy.

magsinva (1425) - Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2017
Tap @ World of Beer Fairfax - very dark red, nice tan pillowy head. Very very smooth, almost to the point of surprising the bitterness of the hops. Not getting coffee, though I am getting some dark chocolate.

DiarmaidBHK (5900) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2017
Nitro at World of Beer Fairfax. Pours black with a half inch of thick khaki head. Has some lactose and solid roasted malt on the nose and tongue. Finished clean. Solid but not the most spectacular milk stout I’ve ever had.

3.8
meccahh69lol (353) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2017
Another fun one to order: "I WANT THE VELVET MERLIN" (as it was called at the bar weirdly). The palate is very pillowy and smooth, like drinking the end of a Wendy’s frosty. Pours dark brown/black with some nice vanilla and chocolate tones to it, without too much smokiness. Still, not the best nitro stout we’ve had recently (MILK CHOCOLATE). Would recommend for half off at happy hour with your booboo.

gschrade (1099) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2017
I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste coffee, milk chocolate, roasted malt. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4
TBone (18223) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Tap at The Brazen Head, Brooklyn. Dark brown color, firm creamy beige head. Very light aroma: hints of sweetness, coffee. Light-bodied, smooth palate. Light toasted but sweetish flavor, hints of vanilla. Pleasant but easy. Guinness on drugs.
