Phenomenal Oatmeal Stout. Smell and taste of chocolate and coffee with a very subtle Oatmeal background. The mouthfeel is a little thin but is also very hearty. Great local beer.

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.
