Oatmeal Stout |  7.20% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
A delicious oatmeal stout with just enough hops to balance the copious quantities of dark roasted malts, oatmeal for a creamy smooth drinkability, and whole vanilla beans for a rich complexity. To achieve this higher level of decadence, we added in whole vanilla beans to the final stage of fermentation - the same process we use to dry hop a beer.

Source: Ninkasi Brewery in Eugene, Oregon. First tried this brew as part of a taster flight but quickly ordered a pint.
A: The appearance was slightly lighter than other oatmeal stouts I've tried but still dark brown and inviting.

S: Vanilla, vanilla, vanilla! The vanilla aroma was not gross overpowering or fake. The hints of caramel and roasted malts made me excited to take a swig!

Taste: Delicious. The vanilla was less present in taste than aroma but was apparent at the finish. The hops and malts were not lost and the flavor developed all the way from start to finish.

M: Smooth and creamy as an Oatmeal Stout should be.

Overall: Try it!

I tried this beer at the Ninkasi tasting room. I was quite surpised from this beer. I am a huge fan of Oatis, and I am now a bigger fan of the Vanilla Oatis. Poured via tap into a pint glass by a sexy female bartender. Light creamy head with sweet vanilla aroma. The beer, not the bartender. I hope this comes out in bottles soon. I wasn't able to take the brewery tour due to construction.

A - Nice Dark appearance. Thick and smooth when poured in the glass.

S - Hoppy smell, but can definitely sense the caramelly vanilla flavor advertised.

T - Delicious.

M - Very nice going down. A little bitter, but very nice sensations.

O - One of my favorite beers ever.

On tap Roof of Wholefoods Brooklyn. I am tasting the vanilla right away with this one. After that is a very good sweetish stout. Has some body, nice and chewy, so not a porter.
