Poured dark oily black to a goblet. Head came and went. Deep charred oak up front. Vanilla is there, but the deep almost burnt roast to the malt keeps it from being cookie like. Nice light hop floating over to keeping everything in balance. Almost a hint of lime in the finish? Very palatable suds.

Pours a jet black color with a rather short lived tan head. The aroma is of vanilla and sweet oats. The flavor is of sweet oats with notes of vanilla and roasted coffee. Goes down real smooth with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall a very good beer from Ninkasi.

smoke, vanilla, black, minimal head, medium sweetness. Seductive, smoky aroma with hints of vanilla. Roasty nuts, a tad on the chocolate side. Vanilla more prominent on the back-end. The bitterness perhaps masks some of the vanilla flavor, but this is very pleasant.

A very good oatmeal stout, rich and creamy and roasty, though Iíve picked up more vanilla from stouts that donít have any added. Havenít yet had the regular Oatis to compare.

Bomber from Wine Warehouse.
Pours black and thick with an inch of creamy brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, light sweet alcohol.
First sip is a bit ordinary, but the second sip is where it all kicks in. Heavy dark chocolates, lots of bitter vanilla, some roasted coffee and a bit of earth. Tasty./\
