Beer Advent Calendar 2014
From Red Racer Brewing (Central City Brewing) out of Surrey BC comes there “Oatmeal Stout”. The beer pours a deep opaque black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of huge roasted malts, burnt coffee, oatmeal and chocolate. The flavour is of caramel, roasted malts, chocolate, burnt coffee, earthy and a pretty big bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 4.2% and an IBU of 55. Some people may not like how bitter this stout is but I find it refreshing as there is a ton of flavour at a low alcohol point.
Commercial Description: Red Racer Oatmeal Stout is deep, dark, smooth, and creamy. The use of oatmeal in the mashtun adds silkiness to the texture and body of this ale.
