A mildly bitter beer, rife with flavors of dark chocolate and charred wheat. For an oatmeal stout, this brew feels more sedentary than it should be. This Firestone offering isn’t terrible, but it’s far more underdeveloped than silkier, more robust stouts found elsewhere. Bypass this tap.
A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish.

A pleasant, light, sweet stout. A nice head on the pour. Smooth on the palate and lightly hopped. Caramel, light and sweet coffee, muffins, oats. I’m a little surprised by the high ratings - it is a nice brew but nothing fantastic is going on here. koleminer20 (3591) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2017
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a darker brown color with a thick ring of light khaki head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is a little metallic but carries a nice chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a bit of bitterness on the back end that is a bit strange. The flavor is much of the same. There is a hint of metallic coffee and a light cardboard. This particular vintage might be a little past it’s prime. There is a little smokiness on the back end that I’m not okay with. The mouth feel is light and watery with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly bitter metallic chocolate and cardboard on the finish. No thanks. ebone1988 (1918) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2017
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Found this one in a drawer in Matt’s fridge. Vintage December 2012. Aroma is earthy hops, roasted malt, bread, slight chocolate, oatmeal, smells pretty good considering. Appearance is dark brown, light tan head, poured thin. Taste is old, oatmeal, light roasted malt, light coffee, bready, fine. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, bready sweet oatmeal aftertaste. Overall, not bad for nearly 5 years old.

Siła tego piwa tkwi w prostocie. Mało ciała, acz fajnie kremowe. Bogata słodowość. Kawa, owies na maksa, lekko słona, lukrecjowa nuta. Bdb. rami_pl (3450) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 12, 2017

Rami Rami is drinking a Velvet Merlin by Firestone Walker Brewing Company at Powiśle
Zbozowo, karmelowo, cocacolowo, orzechowo. Taka mieszanka. Niezla, ale gorsza butla, usredniam ocenke
On tap nitro style at The Pine Box with blonderedhead. Pint glass. Darker brown, basically black with a creamy tan head. Great lacing as you would expect from this style. Aroma has a healthy coffee quality with just a hint of chocolate. Taste has characteristics of coffee and chocolate with a chocolate milk like consistency and flavor profile winning out. There is a nuttiness working through and making its hazelnut presence felt towards the end. Minimal bitterness until the finish. The nitro fits the style but doesn’t really do much to enhance the drinking experience for me. Decent but not one of my favorites from this brewery.

AROMAT : Intensywny. Dominują ciemne słody (paloność, prażoność) oraz nuta zbożowa.
SMAK : Wytrawne. Lekko palone. Posmak gorzkiego kakaa. Zaskakująco wodniste. Ekstremalnie pijalne.
WYGLĄD : Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska.
OGÓLNIE : Lekki, dobry stout. Cieszy mnie fakt, że w Polsce mamy już takich na pęczki.
