Black Velvet My Heart

I was at a restaurant which boasts having the world's largest selection of beer on tap. With so many choices to choose from, I settled on one of their beer blends, the Black Velvet. It is Wyder's Pear Cider with a float of Guinness Stout and the mix was just smooth on my lips. Sipping the Black Velvet, I can taste the sweetness of the cider coming through the Guinness--it tasted like eating a chocolate covered pear!

Wyder's Pear Cider can be too sugary sweet for the hard core beer drinker and Guinness can be too bitter so their marriage is sweet success as far as I'm concerned. You can learn how to make your own by visiting a post by The Disgruntled Chemist.

I give the Black Velvet three cheers .
