A Note on This Beer
I highly recommend visiting Firestone Walker’s barrel cellar in Paso Robles, California, if you ever get the chance.
It’s a humbling space with floor-to-ceiling barrels, where time seems to stand still amid all the brews quietly soaking up wood-influenced complexity. An in-person visit is the only way many people get the chance to taste the impressive results.
Which makes today’s Velvet Merkin (2016) an extraordinary addition to your collection!
This 100% Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrel-aged Oatmeal Stout comes replete with flavors of opulent dark chocolate and hints of coffee. And, after five years in the cellar, it’s even smoother, richer, and fudgier than it was on its initial release.
It also sits pretty among the Top 10-rated Oatmeal Stouts in the World on BeerAdvocate!
Firestone Walker carefully crafts their Barrel-Aged Stouts so they can age up to 10 years. Open Velvet Merkin 2016 now to toast a milestone, or stash a bottle away for celebration further down the line. Either way, this brew will make a memorable day that much more special!
