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.

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

Bomber, $4 at the Super 1 Rathdrum, ID. Paired with siblings in law over games of Cards Against Humanity. Pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Some lacing. Aroma: chocolate malt; roast, caramel, artificial vanilla flavor; roast. Taste is moderately sweet, with a surprisingly nice balance between chocolate/roast/coffee and the vanilla. That vanilla is snappy. Palate: medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Overall: pretty nice sweet stout. Nose is meh, but taste is nice.

From a bottle. Pours thick and black, tan head, sweet vanilla aroma, mild coffee and chocolate flavours with a mild vanilla finish. Fantastic stuff.

Solid chocolatey and cocoa offering from Ninkasi, with nice vanilla overtones. Very approachable!

Mrnoluv (179) - long beach, California, USA - DEC 14, 2014
This is a good beer, has a hint of sweetness, roasted malt, good vanilla taste , bitter chocolate taste. Dark brown color, light brown head. Could use a little more ABV, but I do like this one.

Clear deep brown with half inch of large-ish bubbles that nonetheless linger. Aromas chocolate, vanilla, toast. Tons of vanilla once you take a sip. Vanilla ice cream even. Very silky mouthfeel, from the oatmeal I assume. Ever so slight bit of tartness that provides some balance to the sweet. Alcohol undetectable. Very tasty and approachable.

Dark, orange highlights, clear. Nice lacing. Quite smoky nose, and yes, vanilla. Palate is good, full. Taste is very similar to nose, smoky, vanilla, along with burnt malt. Very interesting I liked it and it seemed quite original.

Nice brew!! Pours a dark almost opaque black with a creamy beige head. The nose is bursting with vanilla beans as well as roasty malts, nutty notes and a ton of chocolate. Creamy and rich with a complex mid palate. Vanilla bean galore with espresso and milky chocolate notes. The finish has a bit of bitterness but else is a smooth, creamy and rich stout.

On draft. Was on a vacation and didn’t take notes. Only rated the beer and enjoyed the time.

ibrubeer (147) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bomber. And a bit sweet, vanilla notes. Very dark brown color, ruby highlights on edge, beige head doesn’t linger. Very smooth drinking, oatmeal & vanilla pair beautifully. Not too sweet, nice roasty taste, but not too much. Med to full mouthfeel. Overall a delicious, easy drinking beer. Could drink all night!

Awesome stout. A lighter one with nice roasted malt and chocolate flavours. The oatmeal and vanilla add a really smooth, creamy finish.
