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.

Bomber. Pours dark. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and the usual suspects. Pretty sweet but worth trying.

Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Nice flavors of vanilla that linger throughout. Perhaps a bit too one-note and flat.

Opaque black with creamy tan head. Full body with medium high carbonation.

Aroma: charred malt, acetone, nutty oats, toasted grain

Taste: sweet charred malt, leafy hops, brown malt, burnt caramel.

Rather boring overall, and a little bitting.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bomber. Pours a dark blackness, tan head that fades to an oyster, little lacing. Good medium aroma, good & oat-y with just a hint of vanilla. Taste is really quite good, vanilla is there and blends with grains for a more-complex-than-usual stout. Aftertaste is bitter, not too long or strong. Highly recommended.

e303 (239) - - JUL 1, 2015
Really nice oatmeal stout. The nose is big vanilla and toasty oats. The taste is soft vanilla up front, roasted malts and oats with some bittersweet chocolate in the middle, and a bit more hop in the finish than I would like but not overly so. Little carb. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Excellent Little Brother for the delivery! Black with an off-white head. Vanilla and roasty, a little nutty with some hints of sesame and halva in the nose, lots of vanilla and coconut, sweet and round in the mouth. Full body, robust, long chocolate and vanilla finish, no carbonation.
