2.3/5 rDev -40.1%
A: Poured a jet black with ok carbonation leaving behind a small tannish cap and some bubbles
S: Light oats, not much vanilla, roasted notes, pretty tame
T: Oats, roasted malt, the flavors for this beer were very mute. Instead, it tasted like a bunch of cheap vanilla extract, light oats and some cocoa all muddied together
M: Some booze, heavy body, not much on flavor or feel, not as hearty as I would expect

Appearance: Straight black, cappuccino head. Some lacing with good enough retention.
Nose: Roasted coffee, slight vanilla bean, mostly toasted oats. Not much going on.
Taste: Creamy mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Tastes like oat crackers with some very light vanilla butter on top. There is not much vanilla in here.

A: Pretty typical here for a stout, black, with a nice little mocha colored head that goes quickly, solid appearance
S: Very simple here, vanilla, chocolate, and oats, but it smells really good!
T: WOAH! This is excessively hopped with bittering hops! Besides the bitterness, the taste follows the smell exactly. If this beer wasn’t so bitter it would have an immense amount of potential to be very good.
M: Very light, leaves your mouth dry, very uncharacteristic like of a stout
O: Needs less bittering hops, the bitterness makes it harsh and almost undrinkable.

Poured bottle into Tulip glass
Beer pours dark brown almost black, 2 finger camel colored head.
Aroma of sweet vanilla and gritty oats, dark roast malt.
Tastes like a bitter dark french roast coffee. The vanilla is not what I had hoped for. Very 1 dimensional. This is where the beer falls short.
Mouth feel is creamy, can’t narrow down the carbonation too well (not the best judge) but not the best proportion for the brew.
Over all with the name of the beer I expected more. This is a beer you buy hoping for something different. Not a bad brew, but not what I expected.

Pours a smooth mahogany with a coffee colored head. Thick lacing and nice creamy consistency on the head. Smells like the regular Oatis, oatmeal stout. Tastes surprisingly bitter but finishes with the same Oatis flavors, malted oats, honey, and a bit of sweet coffee. I was, however, disappointed in the lack of vanilla flavor within this beer. The mouthfeel is nice and smooth but the finish leaves very little taste of any kind of vanilla. Overall, i'm pretty disappointed in this beer.

It's been sitting in the fridge for a while eyeing me off so tonight's it's her turn and pours a dark as night black hue with the creamiest two finger coffee laced head and some nice lacing,the smell is bourbon,booze,sweet dark malts and dried fruits,the mouthfeel is nicely carbonated but feels light on in body just medium bodied which is a big let down and has tastes of strong vanilla first up followed by some sweet caramel,milky chocolate and finished with a fruity hoppiness which really levels out the sweetness in a good way but overall for me I'm glad I've tried it but it's abit all over the place and not something I'd seek out again cheers.
