Cask from General Sutter tasting 3/12/10. Dark brown/black pour with thin head. Aroma of cookie doe and muddled sweetness. Bread and sweet malts with some light vanilla and oat cookie roast. Good but a little odd, nice session taster.

First rate, woot! Had this today at Maxís on draft. Thick body with a super sugary smell and flavor. Flavor was all caramel malts with some chocolate and extremely low hop profile. Very dark, but not on the palate. Vanilla vanilla vanilla. Itís everywhere. There really is a large amount of cookie dough in the flavors. A good brew, but wish I could have it in bottle ;-)

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.

Draft at redlight redlight. Pours black/opaque with a generous tan head. Good robust nose. Lots of roasted malts, some oats, raisins, and vanilla. Very complex and enticing. The flavor does not prove as complex as the nose though still very drinkable. Fairly sweet with a decent roasted bitter finish. Pretty creamy. Not half bad.

Growler to pint glass with tan head over dark black body. Malt aroma with a nice dough fragrance. Taste sweet but balanced with the malt of a porter. To me this brew seemed to be the younger more fresh Brooklyn Intensified Coffee Stout.

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.

On tap at Capones. Very nice oatmeal complexity in the malt. Also tastes of sweet chocolate. Not over hopped, smooth. Would be a better dessert type beer.

Alcohol is well hidden and the flavor is up front. Might be a little thin for the style, and thereís a touch of raisin more than oat......black as coal with a tan head. The Brewerís Reserve series continues to impress. Great beer from a great brewery. I like this as much as Backbreaker, in a totally different way.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mad Mex. Looks like your average porter; almost black with a thin tan head. Aroma was advertised; it smelled eerily like chocolate chip cookie dough--maybe a little unsettlingly sweet. Taste was very sweet with caramel malt notes. Too sweet for me. Medium to full bodied. Not really my thing.
