Ninkasi Brewing Co.’s Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout clone

Ninkasi describes Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout as, “Characterized by a roasted front flavor, smooth rich oats, a touch of chocolate flavor, and a rich vanilla complexity imparted by whole vanilla beans. To achieve this higher level of decadence, we added in whole vanilla beans to the final stage of conditioning — the same process we use to dry hop a beer. It is bigger than a traditional stout with more alcohol, body, and a touch more bitterness to keep it balanced.”
