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.

Appearance- pours thick, big luscious tan head, dark black with only the very edges emitting brown when held to the light
Smell- chocolate and roasted coffee and malts, hops are mellow
Taste- mild sweetness on the first sip, kinda like nougat, leads to a dark chocolate bitter midway, not much hop character in terms of bite, sweet down the back of the tongue with a little boozey finish
Mouthfeel- full-bodied, smooth, thick n'chewy, and a bit of bite on the finish
Overall- Quality stout that stuck to the oatmeal roots, smooth and chewy
