3.1/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a nice rich tan head. The head lasted most of the drink, toward the end it was just a thin layer, which laced quite well. The smell was robust, sweet chocolate, roasted malt and coffee tones dominate. The taste was quite good., had a taste of chocolate, carmel, malt and a coffee note toward the end which led to the dry finish. Mouthfeel was rather weak for a stout. But over all a good tasting brew for Utah.

asked mom and dad to bring back some utah beer from their trip to the nat'l parks. they brought me this...and didn't (and still don't) knw that oatmeal stouts are my absolute favourite. surprisingly, utah didn't let me down. pours a deep brown, almost black. a decent head lasts for about 1/2 the pint at which time it dissolves into a thin lace. smells mainly of roasted barley and coffee, which are the primary flavours here as well, along with some roasty chocolate as well. hints of caramel and smokiness also prevail. a few minor complaints: a bit overly-carbonated for my liking in an oatmeal stout (though not by much) and a strange bitterness/dryness prevails at the end. overall, a surprisingly good beer that i'd be happy to revisit should i ever fancy a trip to utah.

Ahhh, Utah beer! I've had this on-tap and in the bottle and on-tap is much better. Pours a very dark brown--almost black. Nice, not--everly large--head, that lingered. Smells of roasted coffee and a slight sweetness. Taste...surprisingly flavorful and complex for 4% abv (the biggest hangup of normal Utah beers of course). Not nearly as flavorful as a Kalamazoo, but better than others I've had. Slightly sweet, but nice roastiness balance. Nicely carbonated, but the mouthfeel was a little thin for my stout liking. At 4%, it is quite drinkable (also evidenced by me finishing the pitcher). One of the better Utah beers.

I picked this up on a recent trip to Utah. I was very surprised to learn that they have pulled off a credible tasting oatmeal stout at only 4.0% alcohol. It has all the wonderful tastes the other reviewers have mentioned. It just doesn't have the warming effect of higher alcohol. It has a roasty taste without much bitterness. Not a bad little stout

This is one bastard of a stout! The roasted malt flavors are in your face, and it's accompanied by deep chocolate & toffee notes. Hops are there, but you don't notice and... probably don't care when ordering this beer.

Enjoy this roasted malt monster for dessert or as a nightcap.

3.25/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle with a twist-off cap top. No freshness date.

Appearance: Pours a near black beer with rich ruby hues and a massive coffee coloured creamy foam head that stays and sticks.

Smell: Roasted barley, chocolate, milky coffee and earth in the nose.

Taste: Smooth and creamy mouth-feel that breaks into an astringent tangy roasted flavour and bite, with raw earth flavours on the edges. Hop bitterness is slightly lemony, has its own bite and rides along side the roasted flavours, both complementing and tag teaming the tastebuds (near wine-like at certain peak points). Carbonation is tight and helps bring the roasted and hop flavours right to the front. No real malt sweetness to talk about -- a bit of a neutral dextrin sweetness perhaps -- although there is some malt/oat body which is borderline light. Light notes of faint caramel, smoke and chocolate appear as the beer warms. Finish is dry with some residual astringency.

Notes: A very roasty and tasty Oatmeal Stout. A bit more depth of malt and sweetness would have been nice and help to balance out the tangy flavours.
