Not a huge stout or porter guy, really dig dipa's and ales but this brew got me. Pours a dark brown/black with a tan/khaki head. Chocolate and malt notes come to the nose. A nicely balanced stout that tastes of chocolate, coffee, and toffee and with a nice malt backbone. My favorite stout for sure.

Pours a dark brown black. Can't see through this one, as I would expect for a rich stout.

Smells very balanced. Nutty roasted notes with chocolate and a touch of brown sugar. Some dark dried fruits coming though with a woody hop note.

Taste is like creamy dark chocolate with some burnt caramel and some very slight woody hop notes. I also get a slight bit of vanilla, but it's mostly a chocolate and toasted nutty note. The thing that detracts is a thin burnt taste.

Mouthfeel is great, just the perfect amount of creamy roundness and a slight bit of zing from the carbonation. Reminds me of something that has a more mineral water base.

Overall, A highly well balanced stout. The only thing wrong might be the thin and burnt tastes, and also nothing makes it stand out. It's a good example of a stout, one that I would love to have again. It just doesn't do anything exceptional or exceptionally different. Definitely try this one though, it could turn out to be a favorite.

The first words that come to mind upon taking a sniff and a sip of Oatis are "milk chocolate truffle" and "malt-tastic", respectively. But this delightful beer's not all sweetness--they made sure to add a little hoppy bite to balance everything out. Aesthetically, Oatis is a dream--It looks and feels like cold carbonated molasses. Rock on, Ninkasi, rock on.
