BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ipswich Ale Brewery
Massachusetts, United States

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Deep, rich and malty with hints of chocolate and coffee. It's what espresso would be if it had the gumption to be beer. We use two different hop additions, specially selected crystal malts, roasted barley and oatmeal to give it a soft and silky mouth feel. Makes a great dessert or meal.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that slowly died down, but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and chicory are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of chocolate malts and chicory along with notes of roasted malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and only slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't as smooth compared to other beers in the style, but is easy to drink.

Black with a thick tan head. Nice aroma of roasted malts and espresso with just a hint of dairy. This carries over to the taste, with a little char, a little coffee and a nice dry, Irish stout-like finish. Medium bodied, a bit chewy, with just enough carbonation, like an oatmeal stout should be. Awesome, old-school stout here.

Poured into pint glass. Two finger head disappears quickly. Nice stout

Bottled 08/03/2016. Kinda bummed that this is the most recent bottling that I could find. And it was purchased at a popular store that rotates its stock often. Oh well.

Still really solid. Proper roasted malt, dark chocolate, and light char character in the nose and flavor. Also a hint of hops in the finish, imparting a nice balance and flavor profile. Feel is silky and fantastic, with a touch of bitterness and the typical cloying stout quality. Can't believe I've waited so long to review this wonderful beer; one of my favorite stouts and a go-to during the winter months.
