It looks like everything you want in a stout ... black body with dark brown head. Sadly the head is gone within 1 minute. Mildly roasted malts dominate the taste with muted vanilla ... if any vanilla at all. Finishes smooth.

Nice black pour with some fading brown head. Roasted malts that fade into some bitter chocolate. Pretty strong vanilla taste throughout. Great beer.

3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Oat and dark malt aroma. Black in color with a creamy tan head. Tobacco and oat feel to it. Not much vanilla but it is lingering there in the background. Good and heavy feel.

22oz bottle pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is vanilla roast chocolate and a touch of hops. Taste is as the nose vanilla beans roast malts milk chocolate and a little bit of bitterness on the.

Have always been a fan of the tried and true Ninkasi Oatmeal Stout (tastes great with a shot of Whipped Vodka), so was curious to try the Vanilla. Not bad.

Pours a used motor oil black, with a dark mocha colored head. Griddle smoke and coffee nose. Full bodied, mildly creamy, and slightly scrubby mouthfeel. Sweet vanilla bean and smoky flavors. Good.

Pours a deep brown color with a malt roast aroma. Taste is a roasted malt flavor with a hint of vanilla flavor. A good oatmeal flavor left on the palate after the swallow. A decent stout, but I prefer the normal oatmeal stout.
