Firestone Walker Velvet Merkin 2014. This bourbon barrel aged oatmeal stout is touted by the brewery to be one of the best vintages yet.
“We let our hair down with the 2014 Velvet Merkin and changed up the barrel mix a bit compared to previous vintages,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. Velvet Merkin has always had this signature milk chocolate character, but now the vanilla notes are more pronounced as well. We’re pretty stoked on this vintage.”
Firestone Walker Velvet Merkin 2014 is a blend of Rittenhouse Rye, Elijah Craig, and Woodford Reserve barrels. The average is about a year in all the barrels.
