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.

Finally, Ninkasi is beginning to expand their dark beer line. It is a very tasty beer, but the Vanilla is a bit too forced, unnatural tasting. It needed to be less evident. Oh well, maybe the second batch will be better.

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.

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 here’s some toasted oatmeal and we added a bit of vanilla in there to make it different. Pretty solid beer here just don’t go looking for a vanilla bomb.

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.
