3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Clear dark reddish brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee and light roast. Flavor of rich chocolate, warming vanilla extract and some bitter roast. Medium body with a soft mouth feel. Very good but I think I like the standard version better.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz Bottle pours black with a nice full dark tan head that recedes fairly quickly. Aroma is some sweet (vanilla?) roasted notes and some slightly sour metallic hints. Somewhat lacking in the big bold classic stout characteristics. Flavor is sour, again, modest roast flavors and, yes, some vanilla. A lingering bitter twang left me wishing for something a little more.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick, deep, opaque chocolate brown. Light brown fine head, fairly fast rate of decay. Aroma is cream soda with light grass, earth. Body is medium. Flavor is Roast, burnt marshmallow, moderate vanilla, and surprisingly dry for a sweet stout. Ok. A lot of cream soda and dryer than expected.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of rich roasted malt upfront, with dry cocoa and subtle hints of vanilla in back. Flavour brings out extremely potent notes of vanilla, which dominate everything, with subtle notes of cocoa and roast in the back. The vanilla is rather overburdening, with a tad too much sweetness. Light mouthfeel, but potency flavoured. Good, but I prefer the original Oatis.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Heavy vanilla aroma, some graham crackers and light roastiness. Vanilla flavor with maple syrup finish. Pretty decent notes but the body is on the thin side and these rich sweet flavors need some body for support.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with generous tan head that leaves great lacing around the glass. Aroma of vanilla and oats. Flavor is roasted malts, vanilla, oats, and bread. Very smooth and thick, almost syrupy. Delicious, but pretty heavy.
