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.

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.

Keg (Brewdog, Shepherd’s Bush)
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
