COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicious Oatmeal Stout with just enough hops to balance the copious quantities of dark roasted malts, oatmeal for a creamy smooth drinkability, and whole vanilla beans for a rich complexity.

Très foncée avec une mousse brune qui n’est pas du tout tenace. Au nez, douce vanille, caramel et chocolat. Sur les papilles, des saveurs du même acabit qui montrent aussi un effet rôti et une façon torréfiée. En bouche, je découvre un bon corps crémeux qui ne montre pas beaucoup de bulles. En finale, c’est une amertume noire peu intense qui s’accroche derrière les touches vanillées. Bon sweet stout. Facile à boire.

Bottle: Deep brown & black body with a semi-chunky mocha head, lasting. Baker’s chocolate aroma with sweet vanilla extract, sucrose, plum, sugar coated raisins. Flavor of sharp chocolate, a little astringent maybe. Heavy vanilla flavor with lots of sweetness. Touch of anise & some deep plum & raisins notes surrounded by a hint of roast & creamy oats. Thin mouth feel, a little prickly. A good vanilla stout but it lacks a little in authenticity & body. Still enjoyable to drink.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla extract, and a hint of metal. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small tan head that eventually fades to a thin film. A nice sheet of lacing is left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, light caramel, and roasted malt. The finish has light-moderate vanilla, roasted coffee, and a hint of burnt notes. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Really good. Great chocolate, coffee and molasses with vanilla. Very drinkable.

"It took til the end to figure out, but I’m going to give this a very slight nod over the regular Oatis (one of my favorite oatmeal stouts). The vanilla is just done so well. Obvious without being too much. The base beers still shines a little. Super smooth and tasty."

Deep flavor. Strong. Stays on your lips. Well worth it. Had in Vegas since the East Coast doesn’t have it.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Aroma is lite vanilla and alcohol. Appearance is like old engine oil with no head. Taste is roasted coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Palate is a tad thin with a need for additional carbonation. Overall pretty good. Cheers!

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan foam. Nose is dusty grape, wood, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate. Smooth and creamy finishing with a sharp tang. Taste is oats, mocha, prune and earthy vanilla then dry with coffee bean and toasted marshmallow. Suitable for breakfast.

Pours a dark thick with heavy tan long-lasting head. Aroma malt,coffee, caramel, and maybe a touch of vanilla. Medium body and carbonation with smooth mouth-feel. Like someone else said, it’s like a roasty cream soda. Bittersweet chocolate and long roasty finish. Very satisfying.
