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.

rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 9, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of roasted malt. Opaque black color, brown head, big waves of lace. Taste is big, smooth roasted malt that quickly adds black coffee and bitter chocolate. All flows to a long ending with light carbonation. This is strong enough to defy some of the "velvet" the tag line describes. Light alcohol deep in the finish.
