Velvet Stud September - November Oak Barrel-aged Stout7.2% ABV Aging in neutral oak barrels rounds out the edges of this Belgian style stout giving it a smooth, velvety character. The element of time coaxes some complexity out of the wood and beautifully blends with the dark malts in this beer. Expect notes of chocolate, hints of freshly roasted coffee with a dry oak finish. The extra steps of wood aging can drive our brewers crazy… but at the end of the day, being proud of your craft makes it all worthwhile. Availability Tasting Notes Full-bodied stout with chocolate notes, fresh roasted coffee, and a dry oak finish. Pairings Dark chocolate truffles, a hearty stew, coffee-rubbed steak.... Vanilla ice cream float, if you're into that sort of thing.
