Great beer,more of a winter warmer (in my opionion). Really kind of a hazelnut taste not for light beer lovers for sure a stout. Great compliment to the original oatis. It lacks bitterness but haze a really strong aftertaste in a good way. Would not drink o
A hot day but like I said a great winter warmer.

Appearance is very voluminous, rises fast with toasted brown head, large soapy bubbles ontop with dense bubbles below crust. Brew is a bit on the thin side and pitch black.
Toasted vanilla goodness. Mildly hazelnutty.
Dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, dry, bitter, slightly harsh, but settles nicely. Creamy, milky, medium body, heavy carbonation.
Recommended for $5/22oz. But not for much more than facevalue. It's worthy and drinks nicely.

Served from the bottle into a nonic glass
A- Poured a very dark brown with a big fluffy mocha colored head with big bubbles
S- Big cereal graininess and bready notes, mineral water, and some very light floral notes. Not very stout like in the aroma. Maybe a hint of vanilla, but it comes across as more floral.
T- Sweet milk chocolate, natural vanilla flavor, some cereal graininess, breadiness, and molasses
M- Very creamy and smooth, dry, substantial medium body
O- Great mouthfeel and pretty big vanilla notes, but natural tasting and not too overwhelming. I think I prefer this to the original Oatis just a little bit.

Served slightly chilled into a pint.
Pours black with sable highlights. Quarter inch of dark tan head with light surface layer and lacing.
Aromas of coffee and chocolate.
A nice mix of dark roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla with a hint of smoke and dried fruit.
Medium bodied with a sweet, creamy finish, mild carbonation and aftertaste.
Overall an excellent example of a sweet stout, will definitely get again.

Pours a dark brown color with a big rocky tan colored head.
Aromas are of dark roasted malts, some coffee notes, light vanilla, and cocoa.
Taste is quite vanilla forward. Sweet and creamy with some cocoa notes. Finish is crisp and slightly bitter, with some mineral and pine hop flavors.
Mouthfeel is full, smooth, with very nice body.
Leans to the sweet side a bit too much for my liking, but this is still a pretty tasty beer. If you like sweeter stouts, you'll probably enjoy this one.

Bottle given to me on 5.28.13
A - Pours a dark brown with a darker tan head that fades to a small clump in the middle of the glass.
S - Oatmeal, chocolate, coffee. Where's the vanilla?
T - Lots of oatmeal and coffee. Still not much vanilla.
D - Decent carbonation with a medium body.
O - Oatis is decent, more vanilla might have helped this one, but I couldn't find any.

Ninkasi Brewing 'Vanilla Oatis' @ 7.2% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $6.50

S-vanilla , especially on the second pour
T-sweet start middle & finish

Ov-vanilla as a feature in this oatmeal stout makes it almost a milk/sweet stout , bit of a miss for me , one and done

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.

Poured from a standard pressure-cap bomber into a conic pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- Half-finger mocha head with decent retention. Dark chocolate color, no light peeks through. Thick lacing cascades down. Fine looking brew.
S- Chocolate malts, oatmeal, vanilla beans, toffee. Kind of warm and sweet with a thick body behind it.
T- Chocolate and vanilla with a roasty aftertaste. Sweet but finishes bitter.
M- Dry and tight. Interesting feel.
O- It's an alright brew. I think I prefer the straight Oatis.
