8 oz. on tap. Nearly opaque mahogany with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is espresso, spicy dark chocolate and hints of merlot. Tastes of semi-sweet chocolate, lightly spiced cookie dough, and dark fruit poached in a dash of merlot. Medium-heavy body has a medium carbonation with a welcomed small tingle. Hardly a trace of the abv.

Draft sample. Poured a clear dark brown color with a medium tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good to excellent lacing. Medium toasted milk chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted smooth sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of average to long duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Draft first at Madtree then Dutchís. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have raisins, dark chocolate, sweet caramel malt, some roasted malt, brown sugar, moderately sweet cooki and hints of spice. A touch of the abv shows, but they canít all be session beers.

On tap at Dutchís. Black color, kind of red around the edges. Thin khaki head. Couple dots of lace. From the first sip, aroma is very promising. Definitely get a big, cookie-like aroma to this, oatmeal specificaly. Some nice hint or raisin, but not vinous or anything. Very good, tasty malt profile to this. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, lighter sweet. A very light bite, but itís excusable for 11%, and well-balanced with the flavor. Bigger body, kind of chewy, though many will call this thin for the style. Lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish, and a light rough bite. Impressive aroma and flavor. Yeah it has a light bite and is a little thin, but this isnít just any other imperial stout. It has a distinct, chosen direction and the flavor is on the mark for the direction itís trying to go in. The theme is noticeable and I call it a success. I especially appreciate the uniqueness of the whole thing: this is the first "Imperial oatmeal raisin cookie stout" iíve ever had, and (by default) itís the best in that category that Iíve tried.

Draft to taster at the MadTree Anniversary Party. Looks good; a dark cola with light beige lacing. Smells solid; like the name suggests with notes of dark malt as well. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. It could be a little richer and more vicious, but good beer nonetheless.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft at MadTree Birthday Bash. Pours a deep, nearly opaque dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of roasted and toasted malts, oats, brown sugar, and raisins. Flavor of roasted and toasted malts, oats, dark and milk chocolate, tobacco, raisins, and mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with a sweet and roasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting experiment. Pretty good.

Daytonbeer (641) - Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Pours black with tan head and no lacing. Aroma remains me somewhat of an oatmeal raisin cookie. Also includes some dark fruit, milk chocolate and toffee. Taste isnít overly oatmeal raisin cookie-ish. The backend leaves a little bit of a burnt coffee and sugar aftertaste. Not bad, enjoyable.

Snifter at Local Cantina on 1/9/14. Black pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, cinnamon and ginger. Chocolate and cinnamon flavor with a hint of ginger before a roasty finish.

(draft @ Lizardville - Bedford Heights, OH) Dark black pour with a thick tan head. Sweet and roasty aroma. Lots of coffee, chocolate and raisins. Didnít get much oatmeal. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some roasted malt hints underneath it. Lots of raisin flavor. Good but I missed the cookie aspect.
