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 black with a tan head. Vanilla was very prominent but not overpowering. Cocoa and coffee notes as well. I really liked this beer. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love vanilla so this is heaven for me....Tons of vanilla, but itís obviously not extract. Tastes like a dark hoppy cream soda. Roasted. Some coffee Thanks aaron...I really enjoyed this.

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and vanilla notes. Pours black with a good light brown head with good retention and excellent lacing. Nice roasted and chocolate malt flavors that meld well. Finishes very smooth with vanilla notes coming through. Excellent stout.

Smell rich choc. With a nice vanilla note. The roasted malts really come out Its a deep brown with a little light brown head. Nice full bodied brew very chocolately and a hint of vanilla. The bitterness of the choc is delicious and the vanilla is on the aftertaste. Very well done

Deep black pour under a thin sticky light khaki head. Lovely chocolaty nose with some vanilla and earthy caramel and a soft oat tone. Flavor is rich but not too sweet. A little dry and roasty but tones of rich oats and earthy chocolate and a touch of dry earthy vanilla. Pretty tasty nightcap.

This is an outstanding beer for Ninkasi, a company that is usually synonymous with insipid IPAs impressed me with this one. My favorite beer so far this month and probably my new favorite local beer, taking the place of the might vanilla porter from Hop Valley. All in all this is a well balanced vanilla stout, canít say Iíve had too many of this style but this is the best Iíve tried so far. The vanilla taste is slightly dominant but I liked it. This is the Cadillac of mid ranged luxury stouts.

Really nice. Solid oatmeal stout foundation, with a strong vanilla infusion in taste -- just as you'd expect from reading the label. Not sweet, and slightly bitter. Finishes quite dry. B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
