I can’t say I hate working at a taproom; I get to taste all the beers on tap, talk to people about beer and convince them I know what I’m talking about. I’m a professional, I swear.
After getting off last night I literally anticipated diving in to this perfect little pint. I’m talking 16 ounces of nitro; pure milky, delicious, dangerous and devilishly amazing specimen of a stout. This one’s from Firestone, and their Nitro Merlin Milk Stout is kind of making me lose my mind a bit! Firestone decided to whip up this creation based off their Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout and threw in a little sump’n- lactose. Have you noticed how amazingly creamy and velvety nitro’s are? Well this is their secret. Take that oatmeal stout and put some cream in it (no.. Don’t do that.. They literally use milk sugar. Back away from the creamer). Even better is that this is part of a “milk & cookies” campaign. They literally WANT you to eat cookies. Cookies and beer?! Are you kidding?? Sign me up!!
