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.

Black pour from 22 ounce bottle. Jet black with brown thin head. Not much on the nose pretty boring aroma. The taste explosive vanilla very potent vanilla. Great balance with the stout and makes this very easy drinking a delicious

DuffMan (6741) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Dark brown, beige head. Sweet aroma of vanilla cookie and cocoa. Dark caramel flavour that has more of a cola sweetness than vanilla to me. Alo thin mouthfeel for the listed ABV. Just okay.

Re-tried Oatis and then had the vanilla to compare. Has a really nice silky smoothness to it. Good roast notes and the vanilla is like a bass line underneath.

Bottle @ home, shared by Jake. Just about black in color with a tan head. Aromas of vanilla, roast, and coffee. Dark chocolate, dark fruit, and moderately hoppy. Bitter dark chocolate flavor, coffee, and earthy hops. Light vanilla, plenty of roast, and a bit of licorice.

mikedR (1212) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Really nice. Solid oatmeal stout foundation, with a strong vanilla infusion in taste -- just as you'd expect from reading the label. Not sweet, and slightly bitter. Finishes quite dry. B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bookseeb (116) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Appearance is a very dark brown color with a fairly stable head leaving fair lace. Smell of the dark malt, vanilla and a bit of the oatmeal. Taste is in par with the aroma having a nice balance with the hops. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with good carbonation. A very nice stout with a twist.

Bottle: Very dark brown pour with a finger of creamy tan head. Mild aroma is roast, cocoa, and faint vanilla. It’s been a while since I last had the base Oatis, but I had expected more out of the vanilla experience. The roast and bittersweet dark chocolate seem to clash a bit. The bitters stick to my tongue... not really picking up any vanilla now either. The mouthful is thick and creamy like the original, but overall it falls short.
