Firestone Walker took their popular, smooth and decadent Velvet- Merlin oatmeal stout and brewed it with the Colombia La Granadilla blend from HoneyCo Coffee Roasters as well as cocoa nibs sourced from Ghana, transforming it into this Mocha Merlin seasonal offering. A deep mahogany-black color, with a serious tan head, it's loaded with intense notes of espresso, roasted malts, vanilla oats and fudgy chocolate-caramel brownie on the nose and palate. The medium-bodied mouthfeel is creamy, plush and oh-so-satisfying, with just the right amount of carbonation to keep it all in balance.
