It's a cold wet one today - perfect weather for a Stout. The Firestone Walker Brewing Company's Velvet Merlin is brewed in the Oatmeal Stout style with some nice dark malts and a minimum of hops. The IBU sits at just 27 and the alcohol level is only 5.5%. This clears the path for you to taste the malts and yeast that make this one of the better Oatmeal Stouts that I have tasted. Have a wonderful Christmas and stay dry!
