Wow. What an incredibly great stout. Pours opauqe black with a tan head. Good retention and nice lacing.

Smells strongly of dark chocalte, malts, and coffe. The taste is superb. Dark malts and oatmeal envelope your tounge, then the creaminess from the oatmel takes over with slightly dry finish. Needless to say it has a very nice mouthfeel. A highly quaffable stout. A must try for stout lovers.

Edit 1/12/04: After much further product testing I have to go back and give this a 5 for taste. It simply crushes most other stouts I've tried.

A: Black with brown head that dissipated pretty quickly, but left brown lacing that stuck around pretty much throughout.

S: Fantastic. Smells very strongly of roasty chocolate malts.

T: The bottle speaks of "chocolate notes". Oh Ipswich, don't be so modest! This beer tastes overwhelmingly of chocolate. Despite it being called an oatmeal stout, I don't get a lot of oatmeal taste compared to something like a Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout. Nonetheless, I get some oatmeal notes (along with a bitter, dark coffee) on the aftertaste.

M: Feels exactly how it looks. Thick, robust, and hearty. Very satisfying.

O: A truly phenomenal brew. For the style, maybe it loses some fraction of a point for having more chocolate flavor than oatmeal, but either way, this is a great beer. Absolutely incredible.
