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.

On tap at revo. First pint of keg. Smooth beer with enough carb. Creamy, deep flavorful roast, oats, dry, almost tricked into coffee but it ainít there, wonderfully workable level of bitterness, appealing sweetness, vanilla, unknown fruit, probably the most enjoyable Ninkasi beer Iíve had and Iíve pretty much sworn off buying them. This one was a purchase based on a terribly uninspiring selection. Ha - that was complimentary.

On draft. Black with one finger tan head. Coffee, chocolate and vanilla aroma. Roasted malt and vanilla on the flavor. This was a pretty good oatmeal stout.

78samh (197) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2015
22 oz bottle pours dark and thick with a big tan head. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, chocolate and smoke. Taste is similar with a creamy texture. Smooth and enjoyable. Tasty stout!

Tonkun (977) - New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Dark pour with a big mocha head. Vanilla, coffee, oats. Slight bitter and acidic medium body. Good carbonation. Hides the alcohol level well. Vanilla flavor is strong but the refreshing carbonation and slight bitterness balance out the vanilla well

GriffDaddy (88) - - APR 1, 2015
Very dark pour with a thin darkish tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and the expected chocolate/coffee. Vanilla in the nose, powerful vanilla on the tongue. Dark and lovely as every stout should be, modest bitterness, but the vanilla is really strong and the overall effect is unbalanced.

hopdog (9555) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2015

Bomber thanks to Emily. Appearance: finger tan head that does not last but as a film, dark brown, opaque, good lacing. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, light vanilla, light licorice. Palate: full body, soft carbonation, alcohol finish, oily texture. Taste: sweet chocolate with licorice undertones and vanilla present as well, into coffee that goes bitter, with vanilla still lasting underneath. Super smooth, very enjoyable, slightly cloying with the vanilla.

williamstome (1212) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Black pour, foamy tan head. Aroma of cocoa, fudge, vanilla, flavor of vanilla, brownie, fudge, dates, with a roasty coffee finish and light notes of citrus and metal. Full, sticky body.

lbcgreg (46) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Sweet aroma with a slight hint of roasted malt. Strong flavor of vanilla that mixes well with the roasted malt flavor. Very smooth on the tongue and a slight coffee flavor that lingers.

Dogbrick (9109) - 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.
