Firestone Walker Brewing (Paso Robles, CA)
The new ingredient is lactose, a.k.a. milk sugar. When Velvet Merlin is brewed with milk sugar to create Nitro Merlin Milk Stout, the effect is similar to adding cream to your dark roasted coffee. The wizardry comes via “nitro,” the brewing nickname for nitrogen gas."
Deliciously creamy, coffee and chocolate. Some lingering sweetness. Very, very good but then I'm a sucker for nito's.
ABV 5.5%, IBU 27
