Keg Tapping at Isaac Newton’s: Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout

Attention beer fans:

On Wednesday, June 20th, Isaac Newtown’s will be tapping Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout (5.5%) at opening.  A multi-awarding winning Oatmeal Stout, including a Gold Medal at the 2010 Great American Beer Fest, Velvet Merlin is partially aged in bourbon barrels for added complexity.

The brewery describes the beer as… “A decadent Oatmeal Stout brimming with cocoa and espresso aromas. This beer features a rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor with a creamy mouth feel and wonderfully dry finish. The addition of U.S. grown Fuggles hops contributes the perfect amount of bitterness to this exceptionally balanced beer.” Sounds incredible! Stop by for a glass or two – according to our sources, this beer does not make its way East too often.
