3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a near black with a huge tan head. Aroma is a nice oatmeal toastyness with a also nicely done hop in the backround. Flavor is an equally nice roasted malt with some sweetness with some coffee and then comes a bit of the vanilla. Not over the top with the vanilla its more here’s some toasted oatmeal and we added a bit of vanilla in there to make it different. Pretty solid beer here just don’t go looking for a vanilla bomb.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma smells a little of roasted malts, vanilla, and oatmeal. Taste is malty sweet with a sight bitterness to balance it out. Medium to full body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Overall a really good beer.

On tap at revo. First pint of keg. Smooth beer with enough carb. Creamy, deep flavorful roast, oats, dry, almost tricked into coffee but it ain’t there, wonderfully workable level of bitterness, appealing sweetness, vanilla, unknown fruit, probably the most enjoyable Ninkasi beer I’ve had and I’ve pretty much sworn off buying them. This one was a purchase based on a terribly uninspiring selection. Ha - that was complimentary.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark pour with a big mocha head. Vanilla, coffee, oats. Slight bitter and acidic medium body. Good carbonation. Hides the alcohol level well. Vanilla flavor is strong but the refreshing carbonation and slight bitterness balance out the vanilla well

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark pour with a thin darkish tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and the expected chocolate/coffee. Vanilla in the nose, powerful vanilla on the tongue. Dark and lovely as every stout should be, modest bitterness, but the vanilla is really strong and the overall effect is unbalanced.
