3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From old notes. Pours dark brown with reddish tints on the edges. The aroma is cool... filled with baking spices. It is hard to analyze this beer without thinking about the name, but it really does smell like cookies. The flavor is sweet with chocolates and doughy notes. Fun beer... nice for desert.

Really enjoyed this one. On tap at the Blind Tiger. Ginger nuts and choc chip come through on the nose. More comes out as it warms. Very tasty and unique porter. Actually tastes like a doughy choc chip cookie with vanilla notes coming through. Loving it

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
deep, rich mahogany in color. almost ruby. coffee colored head with a solid retention rate.
Solid roasted malts with hints of dark berries, big quaffs of brown sugar. strong fruit esters, some chocolate and hints of toffee.
The raisins really come through with hints of brown sugar and honey. The oats create that nice velvety feel on the palate. Bold porter flavors, roasted malts, chocolate, etc. I get a hint of cinnamon, but it could be the name playing with me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a deep copper with an off white head. Nose brings in some yeast, bread, oats, and a bit of brown sugar. Taste is mildly sweet with some dough, brown sugar, caramel, and a tad bit of roast. Feel is medium but a bit light and not quite chewy enough. Tastes good, but I prefer the CCB version.
Serving type: growler

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Capones mid February 2010. Pours a deep chestnut hue with some ruby highlights, topped with a medium-sized tab head. Aroma is a bit mild, with notes of oats, chocolate malt, and molasses. Chocolate and oats hit the palate first, and are complimented by vanilla, molasses, raisin and brown sugar. Finish is fairly sweet. Thinner body than I expected. Nice beer, I’d seek it out again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the tap with an opaque mocha brown color with only a fringe of reddish light peeking around the edges. The aroma, although not prominent, is also indicative of a nice porter with only a clean caramel malt sweetness. The flavor has earthy oats, a subtle raisin sweetness, and hints of brown sugar, vanilla, and spices (cinnamon, maybe ginger?). Despite the name and ingredient list, the cookie flavor is certainly not over-the-top or overly sweet, though.

Dark pour, nice fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet, some roasted malts, vanilla, cream and sugar and some cookie like oats and raisins. Flavor is sweet, smooth, goes down really nicely. Sweet caramel malts, raisins and chocolate. Finishes clean and crisp and not on the sweet side. Almost dries out a bit. I really enjoyed this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep black-brown pour. The nose is a little bit toasty with a little bit of cocoa and a light oaty earthiness. There is a little bit of sweet raisin. A light chewiness on the palate but there is also a fairly astringent ashiness as well. There is an almost Belgian character here.
