Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouvermcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2013
Black color with brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and paper. The mouthfeel is dry but quite smooth, a bit sweeter later when the beer shows some lactose; roasted malt flavor, dark chocolate, dark bread, some rye bread, quite good blend; luckily the vanilla is very subdued. Correct bitterness. The dark malts provide some acidity in the final.
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of rich roasted malt upfront, with dry cocoa and subtle hints of vanilla in back. Flavour brings out extremely potent notes of vanilla, which dominate everything, with subtle notes of cocoa and roast in the back. The vanilla is rather overburdening, with a tad too much sweetness. Light mouthfeel, but potency flavoured. Good, but I prefer the original Oatis. Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Dark brown. Vanilla, sweet light chocolate. Sweet, thick chocolate, lots of vanilla but that sweetness clashes with the bitterness, of which there also is in the finish. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 29, 2013

Bottle - Bittersweet chocolate and light vanilla. Jet black with a beige white head. Nice chocolate and vanilla with a nice finish. Nice all the way around. bhensonb (15620) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Aroma of herbs and burnt malt. Med body. Flavor is exceptionally smooth moderately dark milk chocolate. It is on the non-dry side, so this is very much like drinking dessert. Smooth burnt malts. Vanilla accents the chocolate - which seems to make it "milk chocolate". Delicious.
