Red Velvet Stout by Buffalo Bayou brewing is a 6.3% ABV Sweet Milk Stout.

Label:
Richly decadent, this voluptuous dessert will seduce and ravage your taste buds, then cuddle with them in the afterglow.

Hints of cherries intermingle with a malt-forward, dark chocolate mouthfeel, finishing dry & savory.

Best enjoyed slightly chilled, in a Belgian tulip or snifter.

Red Velvet beer?! Yes it exist!! Where can you find it? In the heart of Texas that’s where. I have never tried a beer like this and frankly I was very excited when my friend Aaron atย www.beermetaldude.comย hooked up another great Texas goodie for us at the site so I definitely had to really analyze this is I am sucker for dessert beers. If you don’t like dessert beers, well, try reading some of my other reviews and Aaron’s too. We got plenty of beers you may want to know about. So, on with the Red Velvet!

Aromas:
Dark cherry, Dark chocolate milk chocolate, red velvet cake, dark fruit raisins, hazelnut, pecans, hints of flan, almond joy, coconut, dulce de leche caramel, brown sugar, vanilla and molasses.

Flavors:
Generous Red Velvet notes, Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cherry hints, fudge cake, cheese cake sugar frosting, earthy hop and roasted barley, coconut hints, dulce de leche, vanilla hints, roasted coffee, lactose, cinnamon, hints of flan, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruit raisins and pecan pie.

Aftertaste:
Coffee roast, earthy hop notes, dark chocolate, cherry and lactose hints. No alcohol in the taste. A sipping beer despite the ABV. It has close to a full mouth feel.

Overall:
This is a great beer and definitely meets a great standard in terms of dessert beers. It is almost like the time I had a white chocolate or the chocolate rain. If this beer was barrel aged, some very new heights this beer would take. Regardless, it was damn delicious and I don’t agree with the small score it has been give on the beer sites. The thing is probably because it is so new, but this little gem is just getting started. I hope this comes to California one day as I would pick up a couple for sure.

Anime Corner:
Yoko Littner from Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan was used in this pairing to display the deliciousness of the Red Velvet. She is one of my favorite characters from the show and I wanted to show the awesomeness in label and the flavors too. The colors like the Red pair with the Red Velvet and cherry aspect. They always say put the cherry on top of the whipped cream but in this case, the reverse can be said as she has a white skull on her head. What’s the big gun for? It is for hunting Buffalo, well not literally but I would assume in the Bayou, it would come in handy.
