I really like this one on draft.
That doesn't look like a stout!
Sounds good, kinda wish it wasn't nitro though. I'll probably still try it.
I don't really like packaged nitro products. Maybe this will change my mind, though I doubt it.
Looks like a fruit beer......not a stout
First it's White/Golden "Stouts", not it's Red. If it's not BLACK, it's not a Stout. Please stop with all this gimmicky non-sense!
Red velvet cake is just chocolate cake with red coloring so I'm assuming this beer is just a stout with red coloring. Both are kind of weird.
But how would it be so translucent? Aren't stouts almost always opaque?
I am like most. How is this a stout? This almost looks like a fruit style? I have to try to see what it holds but its certainly a weird looking beer, with that said it could be awesome so I will wait to judge after consuming.
From their website:
RED VELVET ON NITRO
GOLDEN OATMEAL STOUT WITH BEETS AND CHOCOLATE
This stout takes the cake.
Our Red Velvet oatmeal stout is a mind-bending beer. Like the cake that inspired it, the deep red color comes from beets, which add a rich, earthy character that complements the chocolate flavor and aroma. The foamy head of the nitro pour is our “icing”, adding a creamy smoothness to the mouthfeel. But this liquid dessert still finishes like a beer – not sweet, but just as satisfying.
It's along the lines of Noble Naughty Sauce, which is amazing. This isn't on that level, but I remember liking it. Admittedly, I was fairly hammered when I had this, so I'm not 100% confident in my evaluation, but I'm definitely going to check it out.
If they ever put Naughty Sauce in nitro cans/bottles I will buy all of it.
Okay, I take it back. Just drank one, it's fucking terrible. Not like I remember at all. No chocolate, no sweetness at all.
I feel like all the newish BP beers I've tried recently (although only the two Commodores come to mind, so maybe it's just this and those) have tasted somehow.... "domestic"? Like they came from a budweiser/coors/one of those guys... maybe a step up, like that silly 805 beer.
It's kind of like Calm Before the Storm but with zero coffee flavor.
Gonna get a taster of it next time I'm at the brewery because I swear on draft it had a strong sweet chocolate flavor.
As a massive fan of nitro and red velvet, I REALLY hope we see this in my neck of the woods.
Had this on tap this past weekend and it was quiet delicious. As a huge stout fan I thoroughly enjoyed this on tap.
Love the color.
Interested in trying this one.
I tried this today and really liked it. Ended up grabbing a couple bottles to take home.
Curious to try this. Love nitro beers and a big fan of Ballast Point. Should be getting some next week.
Had this from bottle last week. It's very interesting. The color really throws it off, it's a bit heavier than what you would think. I think I gave it 4/5 on Untappd.
I really wanna try this, but haven't heard a thing about it hitting round these parts....
Not a fan of red velvet cake, I'll pass. Saw this in my local bottle and the clerk practically put a six-pack in my environmentally friendly reusable bag, I said no thanks. He said it was flying off the shelf.
22 oz or packs?
I mentioned it to my boss. I work in a liquor store. If we get it, you'll know. I'm in Ocean County.
Thanks! I'm at Rowan in South Jersey for the semester, but I actually live in Ocean County
Exit 63. About an hour from rowan if you take a trip. Not too bad.
Stupid packaging with plastic label wrapped on glass...just had BP's Manta Ray and liked that though...
While I didn't like it I think it has great potential. I felt like the flavor was just a little off. I also felt like there was a very slight metallic taste to the one I had.
bought a 6pk on Thursday - finding it hard to finish - great label art - but this stuff is awful -
Hunterdon I believe is getting it on Tuesday so NJ would be getting it. If it hits my specific store I'll know for sure.
Man this was terrible. Thin, flat and bland. Drinking this was not enjoyable, it was more like a chore.
I imagine it tasted flat because it's a nitro.
I liked this, didn't love it. However, my friend who loved red velvet cake absolutely loved it.
Also, to all the people who are poo pooing on this being a stout and being red, go shove it .
"Heh" for last comment. But how does loving red velvet cake translate to loving this beer? If we were talking carrot cake and carrot-infused beer, I'd immediately get it.
Edit to add: Or are we talking about beetroot-infused cake?
He thought it tasted like Red Velvet.
You can really taste the beets....nothing else.
It's not carbonated so it would taste flat.
