Ninkasi Brewing Company Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout, 7.0% ABV and 50 IBUs came a part of a Jet Gift Baskets, http://www.jetgiftbaskets.com. I will post a review of the basket or bouquet ￼in its entirety soon. ￼Vanilla Oatis is in Eugene Oregon with a blend of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. Ninkasi uses whole vanilla beans which are added in the final stage of brewing much like dry-hopping a beer. Vanilla Oatis pours thick black with a three-finger tan head that never seems to dissipate leaving behind nice lacing, that gives off burnt sweet roasted notes with touches of chocolate and coffee with a bit of dryness. You get a nice sweet roasted vanilla flavor followed by ant oat flavor with a dry nuttiness that finishes with a semi-sweet roasted flavor and a sweet semi-dry oatmeal aftertaste with a thick full mouthfeel that coats the entirety of your mouth. This wasn’t as big a beer as I thought and was quite delicious getting an A-. ￼Ninkasi Brewing Company Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout really is a solid example of an oatmeal stout, one I recommend you try. Please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
