What the brewers say

“Velvet Merkin milk stout aged in WhistlePig rye whiskey barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Hints of cinnamon, pineapple, coconut, brown sugar, chocolate in the aroma create a lively nose. Dark chocolate, light caramel notes complement the brightness on the flavor. Oak character balances things early and increases into the finish”

What our editors thought

“Faint nose with light nutty, vinous notes, and a leathery dark-cherry note underneath. Flavor is milk chocolate with a dusting of cocoa powder and a sprinkling of pecans—bittersweet with a thinner body.”
