Gravicask, American Bar at GBBF 2013. Deep, dark brown body. Diminishing light brown head. Inviting aroma of vanilla, bread, and cocoa powder. Vanilla chocolate taste joined by oats followed by a semi-dry, roasted malty ending. Fine bodied. One of my best American beers at the festival (London Olympia 14.08.2013).

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Ipswich Oatmeal Stout has a very thick, creamy, tan head, lots of thick lacing left behind on the glass, and a very dark (essentially, black) appearance. The aroma is of very sweet, dark-roasted, chocolatey, barley malt, with coffee notes. It smells a lot like a chocolate oatmeal cookie. The flavor is of rich, sweet, chocolate, dark coffee, heavy, but pleasant bitterness, oatmeal, and black bread. There is an acidic sourness, too. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy and slimy, and Ipswich Oatmeal Stout finishes semi-dry, sweet, and drinkable. The alcohol is simply not picked up with this one. Overall, this is an outstanding beer!
