In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated
Firestone Walker Nitro Merlin Milk Stout
"Roast chocolate nose, mellow, like a dusting of dark cocoa powder on toasted cereal, with a pleasant fruity hop note. On the palate, the lush creamy texture is the star of the show. Hints of coffee, chocolate, and coconut—light sweetness and low hop-and-roast bitterness in harmony—dovetail through the finish. Creamy finish dries out nicely. Smooth and agreeable."
