Thanks JCB. Pours a reddish copper brown with a one finger frothy light tan head. The nose is spot on, as is the flavor it turns out. Sweet cookie aroma, cinnamon and other sweet spices, raisins for sure, mild notes of toasted grain. Flavor is sweet and malty, mild spice and leafy hop character, cinnamon, bready. Light carbonation on the palate. Very interesting .

Draft at the brewery, and growler. Smells and tastes exactly as advertised. Cinnamon, raisin and cookies. Light to medium bodied, and doesn’t take away from the base beer. A solid treat.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a cloudy and dark mahogany brown color topped by a good sized foamy, off white head. Minimal spots of lacing are left behind. The aroma is dead on for an oatmeal raisin cookie with notes of raisins, cinnamon, and toasted cookie to go along with the cocoa and caramel malt base. The flavor follows suit with the cocoa and caramel malts up front to go with some vanilla, cinnamon, and raisins. Medium bodied and very smooth with an almost cookie like mouthfeel from the oatmeal. This is just a really nice and tasty brown ale. Really good stuff.

Growler from RomaniIteDominum on BA - thanks, Stephen! Stubby little guy, compact like a lunchbox, and you know Mom packed them cookies. And CCB is not messing around with the cookies, hitting it perfectly with brown sugar and cinnamon. Nice base beer, and the oatmeal gives it a dry doughy finish. In a certain sense it reminded me of a variation on Anchor’s OSA, but it really held its own character well. They hit the mark, in a much more satisfying way than, say, ST’s Creme Brulee. Somebody give me Shorts Uber Goober now.

Lil’ growler, thanks to Jason. Pours reddish brown with small off-white head. Pretty much all of us who tasted it stated the obvious after the first sip: "Tastes like an oatmeal raisin cookie." Surprisingly, this is a good thing -- nice cinnamon, raisin, oatmeal, doughy goodness, some vanilla and brown sugar. Doesn’t end up being overly sweet or cloying. Light palate, but not flat or boring. Very drinkable and quite enjoyable. Not just a novelty.

Thanks to JCB for sharing this! Brown pour with a beige head. Aroma of raisin, chocolate and light spice. Flavor is really nice, and the name does not lie, it tastes like a oatmeal raisin cookie. Unique and quite complex

Growler from the brewery. Looks like Maduro and all the other treatments, dark brown, thin whispy head. The aroma smells mild but nice, roasted malt, a little chocolate and a dash of raisin although it’s so subtle I wonder if I picked that up because I was looking for it. There’s no mistaking the oatmeal cookies in the flavor though. Cookies mix with toasty caramel, bakers chocolate, nuts, and some hops round it out. This really does taste like Maduro with oatmeal cookies so I think Cigar City did what they intended with this one. These Maduro treatments are fun and they’re always good but I think Maduro is best on it’s own.

Growler… October ‘09 O-Town Throwdown!… Mostly clear, burnt orange ale with a small, fat-bubbled head. The aroma is straight out of Grandma’s kitchen – oatmeal cookies with brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon; hell, even raisins. Light-bodied with lively carbonation. Balanced flavor, but watery. Some nice spice, but more thin than original Maduro. Crisp, lightly bitter finish. Growler courtesy of cmillward!

Growler courtesy cmillward. Pours a medium brown color, with a small off white head. Smells of oats, nuts, and dark sweet malts. Definitely has that cookie presence in there. Definitely has that oatmeal raisin cookie effect going as well as you get the little fruitiness to go along with that nutty oat character. they hit it on the head if they were going for that, which Im sure they were given the name of the brew. Another nice brew from these guys.

The straightforward oatmeal raisin cookie aroma is met with subtle roasted flavors, oats, malts and company. Not as sweet as one might expect. A pleasing spin on the Maduro.
