Tonight I decided to try Ballast Point’s Nitro Red Velvet, a golden oatmeal stout with beets and chocolate. Not being too observant, I missed the notice on the bottle directing how to pour it. Instead, I poured it like a normal beer, so the head was small, but still sported a nice white color. The beer itself had a rich red hue. As I put my nose closer to it, I smelt earth tones and beets. Tasting it, I mostly got beets with just a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel was touching on a medium feel, but slightly more watery. Overall, not as rich as I’d like but pleasantly not too sweet. The beets were a nice change of pace from more traditional beers.
