COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award-winning stout is rich and malty with hints of chocolate and coffee. It’s what espresso would be if it had the gumption to be beer. Makes a great dessert...or meal.

Rune (8467) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2013
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).

ronaldtheriot (1332) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 3, 2013
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! RJT
