Vanilla Oatis – Ninkasi Brewing Company 3.3

Our rating: 3.3

In this week’s episode, the Six Pack Team cracks open a bomber of Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout by Ninkasi Brewing Company in Eugene, Oregon. Full disclosure, we love stouts on this show, especially me. Of course, I feel confident in saying that despite any bias we have for this style of beer, it’s still a killer representation of what a stout should be. Many stouts end up feeling very heavy which is what makes them such great beer for colder climates and winter time. However, this one has just a bit lighter body that most which allows for easy drinking and for the flavor profile to really stand out. Probably the thing this brew does best is balance the different flavors present such as vanilla, coffee, nuts, and smoke without allowing any one of them to overpower the others. It provides for a complex taste that transitions from front to back without hitting you with flavor like a freight train.
