Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed from a combination of eight different malts then served on nitro, Red Rock’s Oatmeal Stout is quite a hit for those looking for a medium to full bodied Ale. Our Oatmeal Stout boasts a roasted flavor with malty characteristics. With its slight chocolate, coffee overtones and silky smooth finish, Oatmeal Stout pairs beautifully with a sweet dessert such as our delectable cheesecake!

A - Black & brown, full dense and creamy head, definitely a sexy looking pint
S - Cocoa, coffee, woody, roasty, and grains, very by the book but all accounted for
T - Like the nose, more pronounced roastiness with a touch of nuttiness mixes with the oatmeal in the finish
M - Super creamy and chewy, velvety smooth, like a malted milkshake
O - This was the first pint i tried on my unscheduled stop here and it definitely got me in the mood to see what else they had to offer, a solid textbook oatmeal stout

Had this at the Downtown location. Received in a pint glass.

4.5 A: Black. Creamy beige nitro head that lasts forever.

4.0 S: Oats and tons of chocolate. Light roastiness. Pretty impressive in the intensity department given the nitro.

2.5 T: Taste is mega boring. Light roast, no chocolate, and faint oats. Boring here. Whether it would be better on CO2 is something to ponder.

2.0 M: Light body. Low creaminess despite the nitro.

2.5 D: Not a huge fan of this and I generally hate nitro anyway. Needs more malt.

An oatmeal stout that is nothing more than a 4% Utah beer. After living in Utah for a while, I have gotten tired of these beers and the breweries producing beers that don't typically run at 4%. This beer has just subtle aroma of chocolate and mild chocolate flavor with very little (if any) malt. The nitro is a sad attempt to make up for the mouthfeel. If you drink this with flavorful food, the beer becomes basically water. This isn't all disrespect to Red Rock. They make good beers including Paardebloem. But when it comes to 4% beers (thanks to Utah government) you save more money just drinking plain water.

Chocolate. That was my first thought when tasting this at the Red Rock Brewing Company's bar/restaurant in Salt Lake City. The flavor carries an assertive chocolate, coffee and roasted malt flavor. The color is a nice opaque, black color, what you'd expect from a stout, with a nice creamy head characteristic of beers poured from a nitro tap. This was a very enjoyable stout, very smooth and easy to drink. I bit of a hoppy finish and bouquet, but overall I'd say that it tasted more like a dry stout than some of the oatmeal stouts I've sampled prior. I had this right before tasting RRBC's porter, which I found much more enjoyable and complex than the stout. Though advertised as a full to medium-bodied ale to be enjoyed with dessert, I thought it better suited to a session beer. Or, great with a hamburger.

Pours a dark brown color, nice carbonation, very nice two-finger creamy tan head, some nice sticky lacing follows. The nose is malty, very slight roast, toffee, and caramel. The taste is malty, with some toffee/caramel. Light-Medium body. Drinkable, really not much to this one.

Came to the table with a nice dark color and decent tan head with nice lacing. Had a great stout smell (deep with hints of coffee) and a great stout flavor (nice burnt grain taste), but unfortunately there was pretty much no oatmeal in either aspect. It went down nice and I would be happy to try it again. It was a very good stout, just not a great oatmeal stout.

This nitro-pushed brew has a bit of chocolate in the aroma and a good body. The yeast and hops create a rather fruity flavor in combination with a small roasted character. There is a good hop bite to the finish. An ok brew, but not up with the best.

The beer came off the tap a nice black color with a good coat of head over the top of the beer. This looks promising for a Utah stout. The nose has nice chocolate notes, but no real oat character that I can detect. It smells ok. The flavor is somewhat weak. I get more of the oat here but the chocolate tones dominate. The feel is also a bit thin as most other beers here are. The stout is not all that bad, but give me the porter over this one any day.

served will by the nitro tap, this one pours a luxurious looking dark chocolate color with a tall thick tan head. smells like chocolate malts, coffee beans, and flaked oats, more oaty than many of these, quite nice. flavor is pretty standard, this is in the dry irish stout family. mellow roasty flavor and a hint of coffee in the finish. feel is too thin here, even on the nitro. it lacks that bigger body that is needed here. it is however smooth and drinkable. overall a decent stout, very sessionable, but far from perfect. i found many of the beers here to be lacking body. i wonder if that is a product of the 4% abv maximum draft mandate?

On tap at the brewery. A full, one pint glass presented to me with head resin on the outside of the glass. The beer is a very dark brown with a 1.5 finger head.

Paired with the recommended warm goat cheese salad (which was very nice).

Roasty aroma.

Taste is low because of a watery finish.

Yea! I love Utah alcohol laws! Had this before the Radiohead concert at the pseudo-brewpub Redrocks. This oatmeal stout was dark, but not oatmeal stout dark. Served way too cold too. Smell was minimal, but roasty and slightly metallic. Weird. Anyhow, once it warmed up a little it was fine enough to drink with dinner. Not bad, but boring.
