Pours a jet black color with a rather short lived tan head. The aroma is of vanilla and sweet oats. The flavor is of sweet oats with notes of vanilla and roasted coffee. Goes down real smooth with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall a very good beer from Ninkasi.

smoke, vanilla, black, minimal head, medium sweetness. Seductive, smoky aroma with hints of vanilla. Roasty nuts, a tad on the chocolate side. Vanilla more prominent on the back-end. The bitterness perhaps masks some of the vanilla flavor, but this is very pleasant.

A very good oatmeal stout, rich and creamy and roasty, though Ive picked up more vanilla from stouts that dont have any added. Havent yet had the regular Oatis to compare.

hershiser2 (2516) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Bomber from Wine Warehouse. Pours black and thick with an inch of creamy brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, light sweet alcohol. First sip is a bit ordinary, but the second sip is where it all kicks in. Heavy dark chocolates, lots of bitter vanilla, some roasted coffee and a bit of earth. Tasty./\

bulldogops (2323) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Rating #1430 - 08.01.2015 - On tap @craftbeeryeg. Dark brown pour with a weak off white head. Cocoa and vanilla on the nose, and big coffee earthy malt notes. Taste is very rich in coffee and chocolate, mild vanilla bean. Balanced for a sweet stout, very palatable indeed. Nicely put together.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle pours deep brown/black with a thick beige head. Aroma shows dark chocolate, light roast, vanilla, and a hint of brown sugar oatmeal. Flavor shows pretty much the same with emphasis on vanilla/marshmallow. Overall body is moderate and the finish is somewhat sweet.
