Velvet Mocha Merlin pours a dark brown color but actually lets in a little more light than the usual oatmeal stout. On the aroma you get toasty malts with a little bit of smokiness. There is also a fair amount of dark chocolate smell which gives it some mocha characteristics. On the sip, the mouthfeel is light with a lot of sweetness that is balanced out by some dark cocoa nib bitterness.

A little over priced.

I want to rate it a 3, but compared to other beers I just wouldn't choose to drink it before them unless in the mood for the coffee flavor. It is very drinkable

though and had a light coffee flavor, all in all not a bad choice if you're feeling like something different
