3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours brownish black with thin mocha head. Appearance is a bit watery but nice full mouthfeel. Aroma is thick roasty malt with sweet vanilla in the finish. Taste is similar, very dark roasty malt dominates. Vanilla only comes through at the very end. Dark bitter aftertaste. I thought the regular Oatis was oddly sweet, here the vanilla melds well with the sweetness of it. Time for a vertical!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Black, thin to moderate frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Moderately roasty on the nose.   Faint vanilla and coffee on the nose.   Smooth roasted malts on the tongue, vanilla comes out on the finish.
Very light in that aspect.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Light roasted malts, a touch of vanilla on the finish.   Not the depth or body I was hoping for, but still good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is vanilla and light roasted grains with some chocolate. Taste is a pronounced chocolate malt sweetness with a definite vanilla presence combined with a grass and herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nicely done for the style and highly recommended to try.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Safeway in Port Angeles, WA. Aroma is watered-down chocolate, faint-roast, and some vanilla bean. Flavor is mostly the same. I really like Oatis, so I figured this to be better. I have to say that the vanilla beans really strip the body and some of the roastiness. Palate is nice on carbonation, but lingering bitterness on the center of my tongue and an odd bitter/sour bubble make it just ok. Fair beer.

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.
