On tap at Rattle N Hum, I have been waiting to try this beer for a good year now. Purple Brownish pour that leaves an awesome off white thick head. Aromas of oat, caramel, cinnamon, raisin, chocolate. Taste is on par with the aroma with dominant flavors of cinnamon, oatmeal, milk chocolate, vanilla , and traditional brown ale flavors. Mouthfeel is very soft and refreshing. Medium Carbonation that works incredibly well with this brew. Amazingly unique brown ale from one of my favorite brewers.

Dark brown with a medium head. Smells of raisin, caramel, malt and vanilla. A nice beer taste upfront with light hops that glides into a sweet vanilla at the end. It is like drinking two different drinks. This is a very enjoyable beer.

Iím not big on bakery flavor based beers overall. This beer blows this preconception for me out of the water. Love the sweet, aromatic thick headed beer that does in fact taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie. They did not overdo the flavor; thank goodness. This is one of those beers that is tasty to the beer connoisseur and the not that much into beer significant other you might have dragged out with you.

The name says it all. Dessert beers designed to taste like one particular dessert are almost always set up to fail. Cigar City has crafted one of the exceptions. Holy hell. I donít even like oatmeal raisin cookies all that much and I could drink this stuff by the gallon. Iím convinced everything Cigar City touches turns out delicious.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 On tap at the Brass Tap. Pours a opaque brown. Nose is an Oatmeal cookie! Cinnamon, raisin, plum, roasted grains, toasty malt, oatmeal. Flavor is even more cookie-ish. Perfect balance of cinnamon and spices with sweet raisins and oats. This is one of my favorite treatments of Maduro. Made me want to start a fire, sit back with an actually oatmeal cookie and enjoy the chilly Florida 70 degree winter nights. I loved this!

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2011 Insane. I didnít think they could pull this one off so well. The aromas I got from this beer were full of molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, chocolate, lots of raisin, and a solid malty sweetness. Intoxicating through the scent alone. The body was nice and dark with a light brown head and some thin lacing. The flavor was hypnotic and pleasing with loads of brown sugar, molasses, raisin, and chocolate flavor. Best brown ale Iíve ever had and close to one of the best beers Iíve ever had - period! Great stuff and canít wait to get more.

A- Cookies, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla.
A- Brown color, dark liquid, off white head.
T- Oatmeal raisin cookies, spices.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish.
O- This was nothing but oatmeal raisin cookies in liquid form and that is a great thing. And the fact that itís a brown ale and not an imperial stout makes me appreciate it that much more. So good.

On tap at a location that will remain nameless. Poured a clera dark brown with a smallish beige head. Aroma was awesome, just like oatmeal rasin cookies. Taste is also just like oatmeal rasin cookies, as hard is that is to say. The use of spice and dark fruit really peg the oatmeal rasin flavor perfectly. The mouth was smooth and medium bodied. Overall, an awesome brew. Hard to rate this very low, though it does not taste like a beer. Not sure if that matters...
