Beer Review: Ipswich Oatmeal Stout


Beer: Ipswich Oatmeal Stout
Brewer: Mercury Brewing Company
Source: 12 oz bottle
Rating: ** (6.8 of 10)

Comments: This isn’t the beer I wanted but the waitress at Bukowski’s offered it as an alternate.  It turned out okay, even for a bottle beer (I try to stick to draughts when I’m at a saloon).  Stouts run from brown to black and this is the blackest of blacks.  It offers sweet chocolately scent, but the taste is more bittersweet.  Wispy Brussels lace line the glass but the beer doesn’t really please the pallet too much.

As a fan of wheat beers and stouts, I don’t think I did too well this night overall.
