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.

Pours a pitch black color with a tan head that leaves spotty soapy looking lacing. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, oatmeal and slight vanilla. Tastes of the same things in the smell but the vanilla is more noticeable in the taste. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy and slightly chewy with decent carbonation. Overall its just as good as the original oatis maybe slightly better since vanilla is added and its well blended unlike what the last reviewer said.

thegreenrooster (3463) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Pour is a near black with a huge tan head. Aroma is a nice oatmeal toastyness with a also nicely done hop in the backround. Flavor is an equally nice roasted malt with some sweetness with some coffee and then comes a bit of the vanilla. Not over the top with the vanilla its more hereís some toasted oatmeal and we added a bit of vanilla in there to make it different. Pretty solid beer here just donít go looking for a vanilla bomb.

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015
Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma smells a little of roasted malts, vanilla, and oatmeal. Taste is malty sweet with a sight bitterness to balance it out. Medium to full body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Overall a really good beer.

VertBaconStrips (2155) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
On tap at revo. First pint of keg. Smooth beer with enough carb. Creamy, deep flavorful roast, oats, dry, almost tricked into coffee but it ainít there, wonderfully workable level of bitterness, appealing sweetness, vanilla, unknown fruit, probably the most enjoyable Ninkasi beer Iíve had and Iíve pretty much sworn off buying them. This one was a purchase based on a terribly uninspiring selection. Ha - that was complimentary.

On draft. Black with one finger tan head. Coffee, chocolate and vanilla aroma. Roasted malt and vanilla on the flavor. This was a pretty good oatmeal stout.

Tonkun (1054) - New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Dark pour with a big mocha head. Vanilla, coffee, oats. Slight bitter and acidic medium body. Good carbonation. Hides the alcohol level well. Vanilla flavor is strong but the refreshing carbonation and slight bitterness balance out the vanilla well

GriffDaddy (89) - - APR 1, 2015
Very dark pour with a thin darkish tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and the expected chocolate/coffee. Vanilla in the nose, powerful vanilla on the tongue. Dark and lovely as every stout should be, modest bitterness, but the vanilla is really strong and the overall effect is unbalanced.
