So Chocolate so good so much rich coffe roast. Great rich thick malty mouthfeel with slight well balanced bitterness. perfect tight bubble carbonation. Such a big finish as well Perfect. cazort (568) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2008
(Bottle) Looks syrupy, jet black, as opaque as coffee, with no head. Aroma clean, vanilla-y, highly alcoholic. Aroma is tantalizing like a bottle of really high-grade vanilla extract. Flavour: nicely bitter, without being overwhelming. A rich texture emerges, some sort of coarse carbonation present. DAMN this beer is good. Rich and complex enough to sip like a good wine, but good for straight up drinking too. ronaldtheriot (1995) - 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!

2004 Bottle. From the fantastic aroma and lovely thick head, to the jet black pour, this beer is a delight to the senses. Until you drink it; then it delights again. The sweet oats; the round mouthfeel; and the bright hoppy finish make this beer one of my favourites! JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Inviting aroma hintsof deep roasted coffee, some bitter chocolate and a tinge of hops. Very dark pour with a muted chocolate head. Rich flavor and full mouthfeel. Lots of roasted malts bouncing with bitter chocolate. Great stout!

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Growler, I love this beer, Dark, rich and delicious, leaves little to be desired. Rutkiller (12) - USA - OCT 24, 2009
Wow! I bought a six pack of this on a whim without reading any reviews. What an incredible beer! This pours pitch black into a pint glass with what is perhaps the darkest colored head I’ve experienced to date. The aroma is instant chocolate and coffe and some big hearty malt scents. Mmmmm. The flavor is much like the aroma with a chocolate flavour being the most dominant. This is a full, heavy stout that just feels good in the mouth. Very smooth and creamy. Overall, I was very, very impressed with this oatmeal stout. I wish it was easier to find. Highly recommended to anyone who likes stouts. Awesome! bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2011
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!
