Pours a dark brown almost black with a two finger khaki head that left a lot of lacing around the glass. The aroma was dark roasted malts, some chocolate, and maybe some faint vanilla. The vanilla is much more pronounced the in the flavor than the aroma. You also pick up the dark roasted malts and some chocolate. The mouthfeel is light to medium and quite smooth.

Pours pitch black with a small brown fizz. Smells of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is vanilla, roast, and subtle chocolate. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Ninkasi Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout finishes with a lingering roastiness. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2016

Bottle. The look is dark, beige colored head, black in color. The smell is vanilla, sweet, chocolate, cake, roast, coffee, and decent. The taste is mostly the same, roast, malt, decent beer. trapped (3599) - New York, TURKEY - FEB 4, 2016
Darught @ Albion. Inky black with very small frothy tan head, coffee beans and vanilla aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sweet taste with roasted malt flavor, smooth body, medium bitter roasted malt finish. Complex and sophisticated brew.

Poured deep brown black, large head from bomber. Vanilla oak and roasted malts. Pretty impressive ByTheirLimpin (321) - New York, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Poured dark oily black to a goblet. Head came and went. Deep charred oak up front. Vanilla is there, but the deep almost burnt roast to the malt keeps it from being cookie like. Nice light hop floating over to keeping everything in balance. Almost a hint of lime in the finish? Very palatable suds. ecook90 (32) - Nevada, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Pours darks with a thick head. Dark stout flavors with a slight vanilla aftertaste.

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. DCLawyer (2914) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2016
