Elephant’s Nest is one of the few places in town that you will find both Strongbow cider and Guinness on tap. So I immediately asked the friendly Bartender Yohey (yes that’s how he likes to spell it!) for a Black Velvet. I’ve always thought Guinness tasted a bit like roofing tar, and Strongbow on it’s own can be a bit sweet. But the two together are magical. Visually it’s amazing and almost hypnotic to look at. If you pay close attention to the part where the cider meets the stout, you can actually see it “flexing” as the two ingredients interact with each other like a lava lamp. -DB
