12 oz. Bottle

Pours a nice dark brown color, with a light tan creamy/fizzy head, which left not much sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty with some nice chocolate, toffee, slight coffee note, and some vanilla. The taste is very nice sweet, malty, with some dark stuff thrown in, nice little vanilla note. Medium body, with a slight dry/bitter finish, ABV is hidden pretty well also. Overall a very nice oatmeal stout, would buy again, nice to see Ninkasi in UT.

A - Very dark brown with a smallish but persistent head. Good lacing.

S - Roasted malt, maybe some caramel, cocoa.

T - More bitter than many stouts I've tried, but not unpleasantly so. Character didn't change much as it warmed; interesting mix of coffee, cocoa and a bit of vanilla.

M - Medium body; smooth and easy to drink.

D - Not a bad stout; I prefer beers that are a bit sweeter, but this one didn't overwhelm me with bitterness. Overall, a good offering that I would partake of again given the opportunity. Would like to try Ninkasi's vanilla version of this brew someday.

Pitch black color blocking light with a thick caramel head with good retention and leaving laces.
Light aroma of chocolate, licorice and oatmeal.
Intriguing flavor with lots of chocolate, tons of licorice, oatmeal, earth, roasted coffee beans, mild char and big on Brazilian jabuticaba and vanilla. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a long lasting licorice and cocoa note.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.2% is helpless against its body and flavor.
That was surprising flavorful fruity Stout. Complex with an excellent depth in flavors and a unique taste. Recommended.
