Leapbeer Review #340 Red Racer Oatmeal Stout by Central City Brewing

Central City’s Red Racer brand garners a lot of attention with the BC beer geek elite. Many consider the Red Racer IPA to be the best IPA BC has to offer. They recently did a mixer pack of their Red Racer ESB, Red Racer Pale Ale and the Red Racer Stout (the beer I’m reviewing today)

Red Racer Stout is an oatmeal stout, adding a very gentle texture to the beer in the mouth. It is a jet black stout that builds a very tall head (see pic below). The aroma is thin, with a hint of milk chocolate and an almost nutty quality. It reminds me of almonds. The beer has a mild bitterness to it. It tastes very smooth and light, yet complex as well. Tastes a bit like cocoa and raw almonds. It’s a very sessionable stout at 4.2% ABV. Also this is a versatile stout. My wife and I used part of one can in our pot roast and infused the vegetables with stouty goodness.
