Strong, smoky aroma has tones of chocolate and caramel and just a hint of roast coffee. It pours a rich, opaque coffee brown with a very thick, mostly fine-bubbled, rather persistent tan head. Flavor has a firm burnt wood overtone and caramel, semi-sweet chocolate and roast coffee notes, plus just a hint of licorice. Texture is a bit on the thin side for a stout, but still has a good fizz to it and leaves a smoky, slightly sweet finish. I look forward to trying more Ipswich offerings.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that sticks around for a while. There's also a lot of lacing left behind on the glass. Aroma is nice and strong, it smells like roasted malt, oats, coffee, chocolate and a bit of vanilla. The taste is just like the aroma, it's all roasted malt, oats, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. There's good balance between the roasty, sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a little creamy and coating with good carbonation. I have to say this is a pretty good overall brew, it's one of if not the best oatmeal stouts I've ever had. It's an excellent deal for just $5.99 a bomber, I definitely recommend this one!

Long time drinker, first time reviewer.

Nose is smooth, sweet, rolled oats, a bit of dark chocolate.

Mouth and taste: nicely chewable body, carbonation is high for this style. Lingering boozey coating on tongue, not a sticky feel at all. Roasted malts, powdery oats, cocoa powder. Warm. Light for a bigger 7% stout. Feels even lighter with the biggies I've been drinking from the stout family lately. Definitely looks and smells bigger than it is, which always throws me off about this guy, no matter how many times I have it.

Still solid. Enjoy.
