Ipswich Oatmeal Stout
Ipswich Oatmeal Stout is available year round in kegs, 22 oz bottles, 12 oz bottles (six packs) and inside Ipswich mixed packs. Geez, this is pretty in your face for an oatmeal stout. It took me a few sips but I was quickly won over, this is one impressive stout. Chocolate, roasted malts, espresso, charcoal, and a good amount of dense oatmeal flavor. Usually I feel that the oatmeal adds more body than flavor, I have never experienced this much actual oatmeal in an oatmeal stout before. The finish is very dry with an apparently healthy dose of hops making itself known. The biggest draw back I have to this is a somewhat chalky mouth-feel at times. Easily one of the most complex oatmeal stouts I’ve had, and you can’t beat the price either, just over $5 at our local bottle shop!
