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.

Molasses aroma; sweet/caramel, with vanilla and coffee-like roast. A lot of vanilla flavor, with sweet/molasses. Subtle chocolate/coffee roasted malt.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Pours jet black with no head. The aroma is subtle when cold, caramel, molasses, vanilla, as it warms there is a woody character that comes through. The flavor is strong vanilla, chocolate, the sweet malts and vanilla make me think there is bourbon in this. There is a soft woody character as well.

Bomber from somewhere in California. Medium body for a Stout - Iíve had heavier, lighter, more chocolate, more coffee, but this one is different with the VANILLA. Didnt taste it much in the beginning of the bomber, but about halfway through the bomber, once it had warmed up - whooaaa! Good stuff. Really unique and a nice flavor. Not the hoppiest stout Iíve had, but a decent amount of hops cuts through the sweetness quite well.Overall, another fine offering from Ninkasi, one of my top ten breweries.

BobbyAnalog (334) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Rich, creamy, latticed with complexity. The vanilla is subtle but noticeable, the body is thick but refreshing. This is a beer that desires to be poured over a scoop of vanilla bean specked ice cream. One of Ninkasiís best offerings.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2013
5 oz flight from a tap takeover at Provisions market, nice roasted malt aroma, some sweet hop and malt in the initial taste that fades into a wonderful mellow vanilla finish. Great beer

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.

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
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.

BuckeyeBoy (2878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 11, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Jamie Lynn Morgan
