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.

Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head on it. The vanilla in this one is actually pretty subtle on the nose, methinks, but serves as a nice complement to the roasting, while serving to temper the roastiness a bit. The vanilla comes through much more in the taste and sweetens the beer up from the normally slightly bitter roasting flavors. Nice brews.

Lagerboy (1216) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Bomber. Clear deep dark brown, slight amber hue, tan foam fades. Aroma of vanilla, dark roast, a whiff of chocolate and coffee. Lightly bitter dark roasted malts, smooth sweet vanilla taste. Softer carbonation, medium-full bodied, moderately hopped. Finishes quite sweet, but not cloyingly so. Nice winter warmer, but: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bomber from the village market in idyll wild-pine grove. Pours the dark brown black I expected with the appropriately small amount of white lacy head. Aromas are just a bit of roasted dark malt with a hint of the vanilla. Taste is RICH of vanilla and exceptionally well combined with the oats and dark malts. Wow, very nice. Hops are present, and do offer a balance, but nothing overwhelming. Man, this is balanced, well done stuff. Ninkasi indeed.

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bomber from BevMo. Quite dark in color on the pour. Somewhat sweet roasty nose. Mildly milky sweet smelling with a slight hint of what might be vanilla. Sweet, rich and roasty up front. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Solid roasty/sweet balance. A little vanilla. Finish is bitter roasty with a light hop bite.

monk191 (897) - California, USA - DEC 25, 2013
A nice vanilla oatmeal stout. Pours a beautiful deep black with a thick tan head. Smells like oaky or toasted vanilla, and oatmeal. Taste is similar. Starts with classic oatmeal stout, with some vanilla coming in at the finish. A nice winter beer. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gerbeer (1737) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours black with full tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate and sweet coffee. Flavors are similar with dry dark cocoa and both vanilla and nuts in the mix. Very dry finish. Quite smooth but somewhat light in body.

Bomber. Pours dark. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and the usual suspects. Pretty sweet but worth trying.

TimE (3145) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 18, 2013
Pitch black color. Big sweet vanilla nose with a touch of dark fruit. The mouth is very smooth and sweet with roasty character and lacto notes. Med full body. Don’t know why but I just can’t groove on Sweet Stouts recently. This isn’t bad, but wouldn’t revisit.
