COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flagship Series. 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.

fiulijn (18057) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Black color with brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and paper. The mouthfeel is dry but quite smooth, a bit sweeter later when the beer shows some lactose; roasted malt flavor, dark chocolate, dark bread, some rye bread, quite good blend; luckily the vanilla is very subdued. Correct bitterness. The dark malts provide some acidity in the final.
Good beer.

brokensail (15270) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
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.

Oakes (14840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Dark brown. Vanilla, sweet light chocolate. Sweet, thick chocolate, lots of vanilla but that sweetness clashes with the bitterness, of which there also is in the finish.

bhensonb (13610) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Aroma of herbs and burnt malt. Med body. Flavor is exceptionally smooth moderately dark milk chocolate. It is on the non-dry side, so this is very much like drinking dessert. Smooth burnt malts. Vanilla accents the chocolate - which seems to make it "milk chocolate". Delicious.

Ratman197 (12660) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of vanilla, cocoa and light roastiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of vanilla, cocoa and roasted malt with a smooth lingering roasty vanilla finish.

mcberko (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of rich roasted malt upfront, with dry cocoa and subtle hints of vanilla in back. Flavour brings out extremely potent notes of vanilla, which dominate everything, with subtle notes of cocoa and roast in the back. The vanilla is rather overburdening, with a tad too much sweetness. Light mouthfeel, but potency flavoured. Good, but I prefer the original Oatis.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Bomber from Beer Run. Clear dark brown, medium sized creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, oats. The taste is roasted malts, oats, dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla. Thin-medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

hopdog (10913) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2015
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a smaller sized tan head. Vanilla, chocolate, and roasty.

Dogbrick (10872) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2015
This brew pours a brownish-black color with a medium khaki head that diminishes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, vanilla and chocolate. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, espresso and vanilla. Touches of hops in the background. The finish is vanilla coffee and chocolate malt. Above average overall.
