3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep brown & black body with a semi-chunky mocha head, lasting. Bakerís 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. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation.

"It took til the end to figure out, but Iím 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."

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Deep flavor. Strong. Stays on your lips. Well worth it. Had in Vegas since the East Coast doesnít have it. Tap. Just had in bottle. More bitter flavors, But still great with oak and vanilla

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!

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, itís like a roasty cream soda. Bittersweet chocolate and long roasty finish. Very satisfying.
