BALLAST POINT RED VELVET NITRO

On tap at Taphouse 15, unconventional nitro-injected oatmeal stout breaks traditional mocha mode, instead retaining mellow beet-sugared, vanilla cream-fluffed mouthfeel, billowy pinkish white head and silken ruby body. Cotton-candied watermelon, raspberry, cherry and strawberry illusions straddle soft honeyed wheat spine of delicate dessert treat. In the bottle, initial vanilla-creamed red velvet cake theme and Black Forest cake uprising get pushed aside by heavily charred hop astringency.
