Bottle. Vanilla sugar, caramel malt, and straw aroma. Reddish amber with small but long lasting head. Moderately sweet vanilla chocolate caramel malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor.. Okay body. patricks110 (2709) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2017
Weird. Quite sweet and earthy from the beets. Doesn't really work here. Pour is a slightly red dark colour with a frothy beige head. Chocolate is nice and works well with the roast but the beer is underlying with a sweetness throughout that annoys me. The finish is earthy, beety, sweet and slightly bitter. Oddball beer.

On tap clear red with a thick creamy head. Aroma is vanilla and earthy. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Aurelius (5589) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2017
Overwrought shrink wrapped label on a standard 12 oz longneck. Pink Champale, misty pour. No initial head, though a head effervesces. Sweet, candyish aroma - something I can't place, but familiar -- fruity. Gah. Thin, herbal, sweet, nasty. Unpleasantly bitter in the back. Drain pour. ABC Liquors, Betton. BillWyce (1110) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Poured clear, deep red with a creamy, 1-finger white head. Mild aroma of chocolate with a woody, vegetable note from the beets. Body is medium-to-full, with a smooth and creamy feel from the nitrogen. Mildly dry finish. Woody, slightly tart flavor, with a note of chocolate underneath that lingers at the back.

Red/orange pour, cloudy, thin dense white layer of khaki head. Aroma has creamy quality, sweet vanilla, doughy. Smells like cake. Creamy mouthfeel due to nitro, very soft carbonation, dry finish. Flavor has harsh sugar, syrupy cocoa, bitter forward. Otherwise the taste closely matches the aroma. Harsh, not a great stout but kudos to the red velvet cake resemblance. mjmoen (609) - - OCT 6, 2017
B-. Pours a red color with cherry head. Subtle red velvet flavor, chocolate Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Bottle: (very cool artwork on a plastic wrap) pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Slightly hazy, red/orange/amber with a small, creamy, off-white head.
Chocolate, cream, biscuit scent.
Taste is mildly bitter, rooty/earthy....over chocolate malt and light cream.
Doesn't deliver on several fronts.....it's not very Stout, rather watery and weak.....It's not sweet like a proper cake, and whatever Nitro method they used is useless....Can it with a Widget and I'll give it a second look, otherwise, it's one and done for me.
Bottle: Earthy feel with may come from the beets. Otherwise, a sweet and almost fruity flavor. Smooth and tasty. PatrickYEG (74) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
Impossibly reddish in color (due to the beets) with nitro cascade fading into a pink cap of stable foam, great clarity. Seeing the beer in the glass shows the obvious resemblance to a slice of red velvet cake (red cake on the bottom topped with a layer of creamy white frosting). But the similarities don’t end there. The aroma is dominated by chocolate with earthy notes of beets and subtle wafts of roast coco. The flavor is similar to the aroma but with faint roast and hop bitterness coming in at the end balance it out, not cloying or overly sweet.
