4.19/5 rDev +9.1%
Ap - Clean, filtered black. Fluffy, dense, khaki head that settles to a thin film and leaves great lacing.
Ar - Vanilla, raisin. Subtle bitter chocolate.
T - Similar to the nose. Raisin is subdued, bitter chocolate takes its place.
M - Creamy, medium bodied. Smooth and a touch dry.

3.65/5 rDev -4.9%
Appearance: Looks much like regular Oatis - pitch black with a nice bubble show that settles to two inches; lacing action not quite as complete, however
Smell: Vanilla tones soften the roasty element of the base beer and turn the chocolate fudge into milk chocolate; the herbal/piney hops are present as they are in the base beer
Taste: Milk chocolate and vanilla, up front, with the herbal/piney hops building in the middle; surprisingly carbonic in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; less creamy than the base beer, surprisingly
Overall: I much preferred the regular Oatis to the Vanilla sibling; this one is less balanced and is missing the roasty and chocolate flavors I liked so much in the base beer
Thanks, mabermud, for the opportunity
