Tap at the brewery. Cloudy dishwater brown color, no head. Faint cinnamon raisin aroma. Taste starts off like a brown ale and definitely finishes like an oatmeal raisin cookie. Medium full mouthfeel. Glad I got to try this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Draft/Fest. 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. Almost black pour with a frothy white head. Taste and flavor are exactly what it says - oatmeal raisin cookie. There really arenít any other notes. This is what I refer to as a "Jelly Belly" beer, where they just perfectly recreate a flavor. Worth a try even if only for that novelty aspect, but itís damn good on its own merits as well.

Oakes (13599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
Dark brown, medium head with a slight caramel colour. Smells a lot like an oatmeal raisin cookie, but with a fair bit of cinnamon. Sweet, cookieish, with a lot of raisin and cinnamon and a fairly oaty character, good.

Draft at CCB. How the hell can a brown ale smell and taste this good??? The aroma and flavor shows all of the elements, raisins, brown sugar, oatmeal and light traces of vanilla. The finish has a warm cookie flavor that is really unbelievable they got the proper flavors here. Impressive brew!

GreatDane1632 (1116) - Alabama, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Rated from notes taken 1 Oct 2011 -- From tap in Jax, FL. Last bit from the keg. Had a slight cidery flavor, but mostly one of those "how did they get that flavor in there" beer.

Homer321 (2849) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Draft. Pours a fairly clear brown. Minimal white head. Aroma is gritty, grainy and sweet. Taste is initially sweet with a wonderful, straight up oatmeal cookie. Wow. Lots of passion.

Ferris (8103) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Draft - Oatmeal raisin cookie, believe it or not. Jet black with a small beige head. Tastes just as it smell with hints of nut and vanilla. Brilliant.

Awesome aroma of rasins and cinnemon...lots of cinnemon! Really solid though, great flavor of vanilla and oatmeal and super spiced. Nice that it isnít a stout since for all the flavor, it isnt too heavy.

Draft at TAP Global Beer Collection in Delray. Pours an amber brown with a tan head and aroma of oatmeal, roasted malt, and raisin. Taste is delicious, sweet and really does taste like a raisin cookie. Lots of oatmeal, raisin, vanilla, cinnamon, and cookie notes, into the sweet finish. Delicious, unique brew
