This stout is great. as black as french roast coffee with a really thick head that looks almost like a friendlys coffee frappe with a nice oatmeal smell and a creamy coffee and slighty unsweetened chocolate taste with a nice all around smokiness.
I think i found a new favourite stout.

Ink black with a slight creamy head, smells of coffee and dark chocolate, mouthfeel is so rich it is indulgence. If price point is of interest, at 7.99 a 6 pack, this beer is a walk away winner. Thank you Ipswich for crafting a winner I can actually afford to drink regularly. I'm getting spoiled.

A - Pours black with almost raisin/tan head that gives way to moderate lacing.

S - Deep roasted, near burnt, coffee malts. Cocoa. Dextrin sweetness with just the faintest hint of floral hops buried deep.

T - Unreal. Rich and roasted. All kinds of malt flavors rush at you. Chocolate gives way to a bit of caramel which in turn gives way to deep profound roasted coffee. The finish is floral hops and a legitimate aged tobacco flavor. So many powerful flavors and yet so balanced. Delicious is an understatement.

M - Full, robust, almost rotund, and smooth. Light carbonation.

D- One glass begs for another. So many flavors to examine. Best Oatmeal Stout around.

Poured into a dimpled mug. Pours black with a two-finger length tan head. Some lacing is left on the glass as the head dissipates. There are aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. The taste follows the nose. It's very roasty with chocolate and coffee notes. I get some of that oatmeal flavor as well. There is some roastiness in the aftertaste. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The drinkability is fairly high and the oatmeal helps smooth the beer. This is an excellent beer.
